CD ECM Records Kenny Wheeler: Double Double You

1983

Kenny Wheeler - trompeta, flugelhorn
Michael Brecker - saxofon tenor
John Taylor - pian
Dave Holland - contrabas
Jack DeJohnette - tobe

editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate


Canadian trumpeter Kenny Wheeler was both a major jazz composer and a soloist given to free flights, thriving on the creative tension between lyricism and fiery interplay. Musicians loved the challenges implied in his writing, as is apparent in every minute of this 1983 session. Wheeler and Michael Brecker make a very fine, mutually-inspiring frontline, and Double, Double You also draws upon several long-established creative relationships. Wheeler and Holland had been close musical associates since the 1960s. Holland and DeJohnette established themselves as one of the great rhythm sections in Miles Davis’s band and on many ECM discs (including Kenny’s Gnu High and Deer Wan). And Wheeler and Taylor were forever in each other’s groups, at the time of this recording also playing in the trio Azimuth.

CD ECM Records Eberhard Weber: The Following Morning

1976

Eberhard Weber - bas
Rainer Brüninghaus - pian
Philharmonic Orchestra Oslo

editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate


The interaction of Eberhard Weber’s highly distinctive bass and Rainer Brüninghaus’ lyrical piano is at the heart of a number of popular ECM recordings, starting with Weber’s Colours of Chloë, and extending through the discographies of the Colours band and the Jan Garbarek Group. But the rapport of the two players was rarely better displayed than on 1976’s The Following Morning, where their dialogues are softly cushioned in attractive arrangements for strings, horns and woodwinds.

CD ECM Records Barre Phillips: Mountainscapes

1976

John Surman - saxofoane, bas clarinet, sintetizator
Barre Phillips - contrabas
Stu Martin - tobe, sintetizator
Dieter Feichtner - sintetizator
John Abercrombie - chitara

editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate


Barre Phillips’s Mountainscapes brings together strongly contrasting elements, the furious high-energy playing of the Surman/Phillips/Martin trio juxtaposed with spacious impressionistic pieces originally created for Carolyn Carlson’s ballet dancers. The integration of acoustic instruments and electronics (with three of the musicians playing synthesizers) is beautifully balanced in the production. John Abercrombie dropped by the studio to jam on the last track, raising the energy level still higher. Recorded in March 1976, Mountainscapes was described by Melody Maker as “vast, awesome and glorious” and “a starting point for the shape of jazz to come.”

CD ECM Records Chick Corea: Piano Improvisations Vol. 1

1971

Chick Corea - pian

editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate

Chick Corea’s first unaccompanied album initiated the solo piano idiom at ECM, and proved to be extremely influential. Alongside music created in the moment, some powerful melodies are explored here, not least that of “Sometime Ago”, soon to be a theme song for the Return To Forever band. “I found it quite easy to select what I felt was the single best disc [of 1971]. Chick Corea’s Piano Improvisations Volume One is a true masterpiece of music and a very important album” - Michael Cuscuna, Record World.

CD ECM Records Stephan Micus: To The Evening Child

1992

Stephan Micus - steel drum, voce, dilruba, suling, kortholt, nay, sinding

editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate

Stephan Micus shapes his music by taking the instruments of the world out of their cultural, historical or traditional contexts and blending them in new ways. The colours of To The Evening Child are established through instrumental combinations involving dilruba (a string instrument associated with Hindustani classical music), suling (reed flute of the Balinese gamelan orchestra), nay (end-blown flute of the Middle East), sinding (West African harp), kortholt (German renaissance reed instrument) and steel drum (associated with West Indian calypso). “This music sounds in those hushed spaces where the universe inhales, the sound that keeps all celestial bodies spinning” – Tyran Grillo, Between Sound and Space

CD ECM Records Mick Goodrick: In Pas(s)ing

1978

Mick Goodrick: chitara
John Surman: saxofon sopran si bariton, bas clarinet
Eddie Gomez: contrabas
Jack DeJohnette: tobe

editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate

In Pas(s)ing was Mick Goodrick’s recording debut as leader, after some years with Gary Burton and before that, a spell with Woody Herman. Never very tigerish about self-promotion, Goodrick has spent most of his life teaching in Boston: Jazz Times has called him “perhaps the most influential mentor in the history of jazz guitar.” This 1978 production emphasizes what a creative player he is in his own right, inspired by the great team of players assembled for the session. The playful album title, by the way, alludes to ECM’s first office address, which was, yes, in Pasing.

2011

Francois Couturier - pian

Jean-Marc Larche - saxofon sopran

The music on this album, with ist suite like sequence of compositions that flow like a cinematic reverie, comes across as a film-like invitation to a voyage. The spare, gently unfolding and intensely atmospheric melodies and moods deliver an invitation to listen with open ears … and to dream. Couturier has delivered a wondrous offering with compositions that open a path to a secret world. [ Nenad Georgievski, All About Jazz ]

2019

Dominic Miller - chitara
Santiago Arias - bandoneon
Mike Lindup - pian
Nicolas Fiszman - contrabas
Manu Katche - tobe

With Absinthe, his second release for ECM, guitarist Dominic Miller has created an album colored by a distinct atmosphere. “The first thing that came to me before I wrote any tunes was the title,” he says. “Living in the South of France, I am fascinated by Impressionism. Sharp light and witchy mistrals, combined with strong alcohol and intense hangovers must have driven some of these artists toward insanity. Skies that are green, faces blue, perspective distorted.” While Miller’s ECM debut, Silent Light, emphasized intimacy in solo and duo settings, Absinthe finds the guitarist fronting a quintet that brings his ever-lyrical compositions to textured life.

CD ECM Records David Torn: Cloud About Mercury

1986

Mark Isham - trompeta, flugelhorn, sintetizatoare
Tony Levin - Chapman stick, synth bass
Bill Bruford - tobe, sintetizatoare, percutie


editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate

“Everything is in a state of transition,” David Torn explained. “Mercury is an element that captures the essence of change.” The changing soundscape of improvisation in the mid-1980s informs the textures and colours of Cloud About Mercury, whose sonorities are closely related to progressive rock (the rhythm section is half of one incarnation of King Crimson) and to the experimental end of ambient music. Drummer Bill Bruford’s affection for this album is undying: “To this day, Torn’s guitar on ‘Three Minutes of Pure Entertainment’ from Cloud About Mercury makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck.”

CD ECM Records Anouar Brahem: Blue Maqams

2017

Anouar Brahem - oud
Jack DeJohnette - tobe
Dave Holland - contrabas
Django Bates - pian

‘Blue Maqams’ will not only go down as one of the year's best ECM Records releases; it's a classic-in-the-making that should ultimately be considered one of the label's very best recordings in its nearly fifty-year history. [ John Kelman, All About Jazz ]

This glitzy lineup features his bass-playing soulmate Dave Holland, drums star Jack DeJohnette, and a wild card in the form of the UK’s Django Bates on piano. The result achieves a spellbinding balance between gently melodic Mediterranean song forms and the one-touch rhythmic elasticity and melodic ingenuity of the best jazz. The presence of Bates (producer Manfred Eicher’s idea, Brahem never having heard the English maverick before) is an inspiration, for his lyrical restraint, creative spaciousness, and diverse references. […] It’s a real meeting of hearts and minds. [ John Fordham, The Guardian ]

CD ECM Records Egberto Gismonti: Alma

1996
Egberto Gismonti - pian

This is definitely one of those few recordings I would want with me if I were stranded on a desert island.
Alma is sublimely beautiful, sad, and joyous. Many times I have been moved to tears by these compositions.
Even though Gismonte is a renowned guitarist, this recording features piano (with a few hints of synthesizer dropped in very sparingly, to wonderful effect).
Amazing, powerful music. [ Amazon ]

Break out the headphones. The digital manipulation trip that David Torn has designed for his first ECM disc in two decades is one of those wildly evocative expeditions that demands a comfy chair, an hour’s-worth of solitary time, and the will to follow the music’s wonderfully disturbing soundscapes to spots that live somewhere between the rainbow bridge and the gates of hell.

This evergreen stands tall in the ECM forest. There is no sense of competition, only mutual reveling in a distinctly nuclear sound. One could easily call it fusion, but if anything it is fused with itself, for it has created every element it seeks to combine. Timeless indeed.

CD ECM Records Anouar Brahem: The Astounding Eyes Of Rita

2009

Anouar Brahem - oud
Klaus Gesing - bas clarinet
Bjorn Meyer - bas electric
Khaled Yassine - darbouka, bendir

Poate cel mai frumos proiect al lui Brahem si unul dintre cele mai bune publicate vreodata de ECM. Brahem lasa putin muzica clasica pentru a aluneca spre jazz si a face loc improvizatiei, mai ales in concerte. Melodiile sunt superbe, iar Gesing si Meyer sunt doi colaboratori stralucitori.

Although Brahem’s music is grounded in the traditions that have grown up around the oud over centuries…, his hybridization of those traditions with the ways of European and American jazz have made his extremely individual canon pointedly modern, and very much an example of a genuine world music. Brahem and Gesing’s beguiling interplay – a mystical poetry… – could not exist without rhythmic drive, supplied here… by Swedish bassist Björn Meyer and Lebanes percussionist Khaled Yassine. … Both he and Meyer drive the lead instrumentalists while also gathering a powerful energy between themselves. Throughout these eight tracks, it’s clear that not only do the clarinet and oud belong together, but the ideas that flow from both players mesh into an emotional and intellectual whole as they thrust and parry in turn, bending toward and away from each other.

CD ECM Records Egberto Gismonti: Sol Do Meio Dia

1978
Egberto Gismonti -chitara, percutie, kalimba, fluier din lemn, voce
Nana Vasconcelos - percutie, berimbau, tama
Ralph Towner - chitara
Collin Walcott - tabla
Jan Garbarek - saxofon sopran

Inspired by his time spent with the Xingu Indians of the Amazon, to whom the album is also dedicated, Sol Do Meio Dia (Midday Sun) is a consistently intriguing transitional album from multi-instrumentalist Egberto Gismonti. With him are percussionists Nana Vasconcelos and Collin Walcott and guitarist Ralph Towner, as well as Jan Garbarek on soprano saxophone for a brief spell.

At this point in his career, Gismonti was beginning to fill in the porous sound of his 8-string guitar. To this end, Vasconcelos and Walcott flesh out much of the dizzying rhythmic space that defines his sound, while Towner’s 12-string laces the background with more explicit chording. Walcott traces magical circles in “Raga,” for which Gismonti engages us with nimble fingerwork on the guitar’s highest harmonics. Thus begins a chain of sporadic bursts acting in dialogue.

1985

Jan Garbarek - saxofoane
David Torn - chitara electrica, sintetizatoare, DX 7
Eberhard Weber - bas electric
Michael DiPasqua - tobe, percutie

If the title of this classic Jan Garbarek date from 1984 moves you, there’s a good reason for that. Like all of the tunes therein, its nomenclature is culled from the poetry of Tomas Tranströmer, who was just awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature this year. And if anyone has the vocabulary available at his lips to reproduce it without words, it’s Jan Garbarek.

CD ECM Records Gary Peacock Trio: Tangents

2017

Gary Peacock - contrabas
Marc Copland - pian
Joey Baron - tobe

Some of Gary Peacock’s finest music has been made in piano trios. Early in his musical life, Peacock established a fresh role for the bass as an independent melodic voice, a concept carried forward in the history-making groups he’s played with – from Paul Bley’s Bill Evans’s trios to Keith Jarrett’s. As a bandleader he has also been influential: Tangents is the second release from the great bassist’s trio with Marc Copland and Joey Baron and draws on years of shared playing in diverse contexts. All three band members contribute compositions, Peacock’s including “December Greenwings”, revisiting a piece Gary introduced on his ECM recording December Poems. Repertoire includes five tunes from Peacock, two from Baron, one from Copland, and an outstanding group improvisation, “Empty Forest”. The trio also plays Miles Davis’s “Blue In Green” and, perhaps surprisingly, Alex North’s theme for the film Spartacus, which also proves a fine vehicle for improvising.

CD ECM Records Ralph Towner: Solstice

1974
Ralph Towner - chitara clasica, chitara cu 12 corzi, pian
Jan Garbarek - saxofon sopran si tenor, flaut
Eberhard Weber - bas electric, violoncel
Jon Christensen - tobe, percutie

Down Beat: “Solstice inspires through its expressive openness… revealing depth of texture, nuance and meaning.” Perfect Sound Forever: “The LP is not only one of the moodiest ever published by ECM, but by anyone.” Solstice, recorded 1974, belongs to the great early production projects of ECM, with a new band formed in the studio. It’s the first of Towner’s recorded encounters with the European players, and this US-Norwegian-German quartet has a character all its own. Ralph’s synthesis of classical guitar technique and jazz improvisational skills inspires all participants on now-famous tunes including “Nimbus” and “Oceanus”. (Many future associations grew out of this meeting, including the Garbarek/Towner collaboration on Dis, and the integration of Eberhard Weber into the Jan Garbarek Group, and of Jon Christensen into Weber’s Colours band.)
