CD ACT Esbjorn Svensson Trio: Good Morning Susie Soho


2000
2000

Esbjorn Svensson - pian, claviaturi, percutie
Dan Berglund - bas, percutie
Magnus Ostrom - tobe, percutie

Good Morning Susie Soho peaked on the Swedish pop album chart at 15, above the likes of Whitney Houston, Britney Spears and Pearl Jam, yet was named album of the year for 2000 by the critics in the British magazine Jazzwise. At the same time, Svensson was on the covers of two German jazz magazines, was the cover feature, along with Jacky Terrasson, in the French magazine Jazzman and was hailed by the German news weekly Der Spiegel as the future of jazz piano (together with Brad Mehldau). Clearly then it's not unreasonable to suggest that this album is making waves across Europe. That the cutting edge can live on without necessarily inhabiting volatile experimentation is hardly new, and Svensson's trio, while darkly lyrical, is also fiercely contemporary.

CD ECM Records Billy Hart / Ethan Iverson Quartet: One Is The Other


2013

Billy Hart - tobe
Mark Turner - saxofon tenor
Ben Street - contrabas
Ethan Iverson - pian

The second ECM album by the Billy Hart Quartet is a major musical statement, and one of the outstanding jazz albums of the season. The group’s reach – already broad on 2011’s widely-acclaimed All Our Reasons – is yet more expansive here. Strong compositions – by leader-drummer Hart, tenorist Mark Turner and pianist Ethan Iverson – reflect upon a wide swathe of the music’s history, and are distinguished by vivid and imaginative solos and wonderful interplay.

CD ECM Records Duo Gazzana: Poulenc / Walton / Dallapiccola / Schnittke / Silvestrov


2013

Natascia Gazzana - vioara
Raffaella Gazzana - pian

These works call often for considerable interpretive and technical excellence. The youthful dash of Duo Gazzana give us plenty of both in a program of unity within great diversity. What seems at first a potpourri of varying modern period masters and their works comes together to give us a sort of survey of the ways tradition has not always been overturned in modern times but sometimes also has aided and forwarded the search for new sounds within expressive and structural models that date back centuries. Duo Gazzana brings us performances of vivid musicality. One could not ask for much better than this. [ Grego Applegate Edwards, Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review ]

CD ECM Records Charles Lloyd: Voice In The Night


1999

Charles Lloyd - saxofon tenor
John Abercrombie - chitara
Dave Holland - contrabas
Billy Higgins - tobe, percutie

Charles Lloyd's sixth ECM album is both a departure and a homecoming for the Memphis-born and California-based tenorist, introducing new music and revisiting archive favourites (including the epic 'Forest Flower'), and featuring an all-star line-up. With his 'Scandinavian' band currently on hold,this is Lloyd's first all-American album in a long while - Dave Holland qualifies as an honorary American by now - with all the differences of cultural emphasis that this implies. ECM veteran John Abercrombie and legendary drummer Billy Higgins are in great form throughout as they lock in with Lloyd to tackle material ranging from Billy Strayhorn's 'A Flower Is A Lovesome Thing' to the Elvis Costello/Burt Bacharach-penned 'God Give Me Strength' or dig deep into the roots music of the 'Island Blues Suite'.

2017

Mathias Eick - trompeta, voce
Hakon Aase - vioara
Andreas Ulvo - pian
Audun Erlien - bas electric
Torstein Lofthus - tobe
Helge Andreas Norbakken - tobe, percutie

Eick's compositions have an overall darkness about them though their sophistication and accents, the punctuation of bass and percussion, makes for a highly listenable blend of emotions, without jolting fluctuations. As with Midwest the music on Ravensburg is deeply atmospheric. [ AllAboutJazz ]

CD ECM Records Gidon Kremer, Kremerata Baltica - Victor Kissine: Between Two Waves


2011

Gidon Kremer - vioara
Daniil Grishin - viola
Giedre Dirvanauskaite - violoncel
Andrius Zlabys - pian
Andrei Pushkarev - percutie
Kremerata Baltica ( dirijor Roman Kofman )

Between Two Waves is both a title for the opening work and a key to the link between all three pieces in this programme. The composer’s own notes describe the city in which he was born, St Petersburg, as having ‘a seaweed savour’ and being a place which ‘inspires elegies’. The opening of the piano concerto is certainly atmospheric in an elegiac way, with a pervasive shimmering of water expressed through tremolando strings, trills and beams of light shining through from the notes of the piano. This is no conventional piano concerto, and the solo instrument is often a point of repose between the restless strings, an inversion of virtuoso preconceptions for the genre.

CD ECM Records Trio Mediaeval, Arve Henriksen: Rimur


2017

Anna Maria Friman - voce, Hardanger Fiddle
Linn Andrea Fuglseth - voce, Shruti Box
Berit Opheim - voce
Arve Henriksen - trompeta

This is a beautiful recording that may will bring Trio Mediaeval to a new and wider audience in much the same way that the Hilliard Ensemble did with their collaboration with Jan Garbarek that lasted for twenty years and produced three albums. And that is maybe where the appeal in this extraordinary music lies. In this instance the blending of the three female voices along with the fourth voice of Henriksen's liquid trumpet playing running through it to seamlessly create a fabric of sound that it at once fragile and yet has a tensile strength.

CD ECM Records Valentin Silvestrov: Hieroglyphen Der Nacht


2017

Anja Lechner - violoncel, Tamtam
Agnès Vesterman - violoncel

Released in time for the great Ukrainian composer’s 80th birthday on September 30, Hieroglyphen der Nacht features Valentin Silvestrov’s music for solo violoncello and for two cellos. German cellist Anja Lechner has had a long association with Silvestrov, first documented on the Grammy-nominated leggiero, pesante in 2001. Here she plays, alone, Augenblicke der Stille und Traurigkeit (of which she is the dedicatee), Lacrimosa, Walzer der Alpengöckchen, and Elegie (which calls for her to play both cello and tamtams). Lechner is joined by French cellist Agnès Vestermann, a frequent duo partner, to play Drei Stücke (dedicated to both musicians), 8.VI. 1810…zum Geburtstag R.A. Schumann, Zwei Serenaden, and 25.X.1893…zum Andenken an P.I. Tschaikowskij. As so often with Silvestrov, the compositions often take the form of metaphorical conversations with composers of the past and the present. Tchaikovsky and Schumann are amongst the composers referenced here, while Lacrimosa is a reaction to music of his friend Tigran Mansurian. “My own music is a response to and an echo of what already exists,” says Silvestrov, viewing his oeuvre as a series of “codas” to music history.

CD ECM Records Duo Gazzana: Five Pieces - Takemitsu / Hindemith / Janacek / Silvestrov


2011

Natascia Gazzana - vioara
Raffaella Gazzana - pian

Toru Takemitsu - Distance Du Fee (1951)
Paul Hindemith - Sonata In E (1935)
Leos Janacek - Sonata (1914, rev 1921)
Valentin Silvestrov - Five Pieces (2004)

These works – a gently-pulsing elegy, a serenade, an intermezzo, a barcarole, a ghostly nocturne - receive their international release here in a context which combines the familiar and the far-flung, as Duo Gazzana finds creative affinities between the music of four very different composers. “The programme as a whole is typical of the duo’s inquiring and sensitive approach to repertory”, writes Paul Griffiths in the liner notes. “What we hear here is a vital freshness”.

CD ECM Records John Surman: Road To Saint Ives


1990
John Surman - saxofoane, bas clarinet, claviaturi, percutie

Although we might feel tempted to take Road To Saint Ives, one of John Surman’s most stunning solo albums to date, as a portrait of its titular coastal town, Surman states in his liner notes that such is not the case. Aside from the peppering of folk-inspired melodies in the soprano solos, the music breaks its own ground on the way toward unique improvisatory continents.

CD ACT Esbjorn Svensson Trio: Tuesday Wonderland


2006

Esbjorn Svensson - pian, claviaturi, electronice
Dan Berglund - bas, electronice
Magnus Ostrom - tobe, percutie, electronice

Though there are traditional elements at work, Tuesday Wonderland thrives on being unconventional. On the opening track "Fading Maid Pendulum," just as it's hypnotizing with a gentle, classically tinged piano melody, Dan Berglund jumps in with a brooding, distorted heavy metal bass craziness and drummer Magnus Ostrom goes cymbal crazy. It's electro-ambient jazz gone mad. The title track features Svensson's David Benoit-like, melodic dark-meets-light piano dichotomy over Ostrom's sharp, off-meter drums before some spacy electronica takes over for a spell. "Brewery of Beggars" is another inspired dose of insanity, darting from busy cymbal-piano swirls to softer, contemplative piano-bass moments. [ AllMusic ]

“Cohen is a multicultural jazz musician, among whose ancestors is Miles Davis. Like Davis, he can make the trumpet a vehicle for uttering the most poignant human cries.”

CD ECM Records Gidon Kremer - Mieczyslaw Weinberg: Chamber Symphonies & Piano Quintet


2017

Gidon Kremer - vioara, dirijor
Andrei Pushkarev - percutie
Kremerata Baltica

Mieczysław Weinberg:
- Chamber Symphony No. 3 Op. 151
- Chamber Symphony No. 2 Op. 147
- Chamber Symphony No. 1 Op. 145
- Piano Quintet Op. 18
- Chamber Symphony No. 4 Op. 153

This new set leaves you wondering why a composer of such consistently intense, emotionally direct music remained virtually unknown in the West for his entire career. […] through it all, Weinberg’s own voice comes through in long, soaring string lines, and textures that are invitingly sumptuous but also full of mystery. What makes the first three chamber symphonies especially fascinating is that they are early and late works simultaneously. In each case, Weinberg used a youthful chamber piece as a template, with trims, additions and reordering, along with broad rescoring. They superimpose an older man’s perspective on the youthful vision of the original work, yielding a moving balance of energy and world-weariness. [ Allan Kozinn, The Wall Street Journal ]

CD ECM Records Gary Burton: Seven Songs For Quartet & Chamber Orchestra


1973

Gary Burton - vibrafon
Michael Goodrick - chitara
Steve Swallow - bas
Ted Seibs - tobe

ecmreviews:
"If one were to draw a line between the ensemble aesthetics of Eberhard Weber and Keith Jarrett, then one might plot the compositions of orchestral jazz legend Mike Gibbs somewhere along the way. Born in 1937 in what was then Southern Rhodesia, and a graduate of Boston’s Berklee College of Music, Gibbs has laid down a musical path as diverse as his travels. On Seven Songs for Chamber Orchestra, one gains vision of a mind looking not so much to cross over into uncharted waters as to expand the inclusivity of jazz’s already broad topography. At the heart of this project is Gibbs’s most famous student, the inimitable Gary Burton, who presents a lovingly realized program of his mentor’s own design.

CD ECM Records Avishai Cohen: Cross My Palm With Silver


2017

Avishai Cohen - trompeta
Yonathan Avishai - pian
Barak Mori - contrabas
Nasheet Waits - tobe

If trumpeter Avishai Cohen's ECM debut, Into The Silence was a work of deeply personal content, Cross My Palm With Silver plays out with the same emotional impact, but on a global stage. Cohen composed the five pieces on this album in his native Israel, while contemplating the impact of political division on the human psyche. His hope is that the music contributes to a healing process. [ AllAboutJazz ]

2011

Denes Varjon - pian

Alban Berg - Sonata Op. 1
Leos Janacek - V Mlhach ( In The Mists )
Franz Liszt - Sinata In B Minor

And from the very start of the CD, the luminous playing of the opening of Berg’s Sonata Op.1 tells us this is a pianist of rare sensitivity. The word seems almost to float in this performance, continually remaking itself from moment to moment and never come to rest. […] Varjón ranges through the music as if mapping an unknown landscape. […] All in all, a very impressive and intelligently planned programme. [ Calum MacDonald, BBC Music Magazine ]

Her music has a real fluid sculptural quality, conceived within a soundworld that is frequently dominated by wind instruments. It’s not music that goes out of its way to be ingratiating, but as this highly impressive collection shows, behind this take-it-or-leave-it façade lurks music of real personality and expressive depth.

CD ECM Records Vijay Iyer, Wadada Leo Smith: A Cosmic Rhythm With Each Stroke


2016

Vijay Iyer - pian, Fender Rhodes, electronice
Wadada Leo Smith - trompeta

A trumpet/piano duo is a tough call, but the two operate with a charismatic delicacy and subtle force. The centrepiece is a largely improvised seven-part suite dedicated to Indian visual artist Nasreen Mohamedi. Smith’s tone and phrasing often reflect mid-period Miles Davis, but he blends free jazz into those resources with a unique poetic focus. Long high squeals and tumbling unfold over Iyer’s humming electronics, a bright brass fanfare soars over a chordal rumble, and a lamenting muted-trumpet descent invokes ‘Sketches of Spain’. Iyer mostly functions as a discreet foil, but this intimate conversation swells from interesting to enthralling as it unfolds. [ John Fordham, The Guardian ]
