CD ECM Records Ketil Bjornstad, Terje Rypdal: The Sea

In stoc

1995
Ketil Bjornstad - pian
David Darling - violoncel
Terje Rypdal - chitara electrica
Jon Christensen - tobe

"The twelve parts that comprise The Sea are of a proportion far beyond aquatic, for their magic lies in the hands and hearts of four musicians who came together for a session as ever-changing as its namesake. The number would seem to be significant: months in a year, hours in a day, each a cycle rendered timeless through a story that bleeds and weeps. David Darling’s trembling cello lets out the first cry, eddying with all the force of nature at the edge of a bow. " [ ecmreviews ]

CD ECM Records Bobo Stenson Trio: War Orphans

In stoc

1997
Bobo Stenson - pian
Anders Jormin - contrabas
Jon Christensen - tobe

Characteristically broad in its stylistic range, this 1997 recording begins with a tune by Cuban singer-songwriter Silvio Rodríguez and ends with Duke Ellington’s “Melancholia”. In between are original contributions by Anders Jormin and Bobo Stenson and two pieces by Ornette Coleman, including the deeply-felt title track. “There is great freedom in Ornette’s melodies,” says Swedish pianist Stenson, a masterful player who subtly explores the emotional atmosphere of every tune. “In all tempos, in all keys, in all musical situations, his notes hang in the air like existential moments of coming into being.” -Jazz Times

CD ECM Records Ralph Towner: Solstice

In stoc

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.)

CD ECM Records Pat Metheny Group: First Circle

In stoc

1984

Pat Metheny - chitara electrica si acustica, Synclavier
Lyle Mays - instrumente cu claviaturi, sintetizatoare, trompeta
Steve Rodby - bas
Pedro Aznar - chitara, percutie, voce
Paul Wertico - tobe

AllMusic: " In First Circle, the Pat Metheny Group settled into a lineup that lasted for quite a while -- with Metheny, keyboardist Lyle Mays, bassist Steve Rodby, and new drummer Paul Wertico forming the core quartet. The ever-restless Metheny also mixes up the music, not quite leaving the Brazilian glide behind but coming up with some fascinating permutations always affixed with his personal stamp. "Forward March," the album opener, is a bizarre parody full of detuned instruments and half-cocked trumpet from Mays; one wonders if this was directed at a few silly skirmishes of the day (Grenada? the Falklands?).

CD ECM Records Pat Metheny Group: American Garage

In stoc

1979

Pat Metheny - chitara electrica si acustica
Lyle Mays - claviaturi
Mark Egan - bas
Dan Gottlieb - tobe

AllMusic: " The back liner photo gives the impression of a grungy Midwestern garage band, but no, that doesn't describe this sophisticated jazz-rock quartet, which was simultaneously breaking into mass-market acceptance and away from the contemplative ECM stereotype. The arrangements are more structured, the playing often more intense and searching, with a more pronounced rock influence.

CD ECM Records Pat Metheny: Watercolors

In stoc

Pat Metheny - chitara, double-six, harp-guitar
Lyle Mays - pian
Eberhard Weber - bas
Danny Gottlieb - tobe

“Guitar wonder Metheny has made an astoundingly tasteful and free flowing record here” the Massachusetts Valley Advocate declared. “Metheny’s compositions are perfect vehicles for his guitar, which blends smoothly with the breathtaking ensemble work.” The recording is the first of Pat’s albums to feature Lyle Mays, an important partner for the work ahead: “You can hear them reaching toward the sound that would burst forth a year later on the Pat Metheny Group album”, Down Beat would later note. And with Danny Gottlieb on drums, three quarters of the Metheny Group is present here. The personnel of Watercolors is completed by Eberhard Weber, with whom Metheny had already collaborated creatively in Gary Burton’s band.

CD ECM Records Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette: Standards Vol. 1

In stoc

Keith Jarrett - pian
Gary Peacock - contrabas
Jack DeJohnette - tobe

The protagonists had already recorded together on Gary Peacock’s Tales of Another in 1977, but Jarrett’s Standards project, with its dedication to the Great American Songbook, proposed a new sphere of operation, one that would make this trio among the best-loved bands in all of jazz. This New York Power Station recording from January 1983 established the simple blueprint: honour the standards as compositions and discover where the material can lead a creative improviser. There is fabulous playing here, including a wildly inventive “All The Things You Are”, and heart-rending versions of “Meaning of the Blues” and “It Never Entered My Mind”.

In stoc

1985

Keith Jarrett - pian
Gary Peacock - contrabas
Jack DeJohnette - tobe

ecmreviews:
"Take one look at the thoughtful cover art of this seminal Keith Jarrett release, and you’ll gain immediate insight into what makes his trio click. Each curvaceous line brings a lifetime of movement, of study, and of passion to bear on the music at hand. And with these six standards resurrected to such profound levels, there’s nothing not to like.

CD ECM Records Oregon: Ecotopia

In stoc

1987

Trilok Gurtu - tabla, percutie
Paul McCandless - oboi, saxofon sopran, sintetizatoare
Glen Moore - contrabas
Ralph Towner - chitara clasica si double-six, pian, sintetizatoare, drum-machine

ecmreviews: "The stars of Ecotopia, Oregon’s third and final album for ECM and one wounded by the absence of Colin Walcott, are undoubtedly Ralph Towner and Paul McCandless. One could easily be content in listening to just the two of them for the album’s 50-minute duration, pairing so gorgeously as they do on tracks like “Zephyr.” As it is, we get a rich sound palette that, while a definite shift from what came before, speaks to a mode of experimentation that is therapeutic and adventurous.

Martie 1975

John Abercrombie - chitara electrica
Dave Holland - contrabas
Jack DeJohnette - tobe

"With this record, John Abercrombie both repaved and detoured from his staid path. He could hardly have been in finer company, and the combination seems to have fanned all sorts of flames within him. DeJohnette and Holland string an array of tightropes across which Abercrombie balances his way into previously uncharted territory. [ ecmreviews ]

CD ECM Records Kenny Wheeler: Gnu High

In stoc

1975

Kenny Wheeler - flugelhorn
Keith Jarrett - pian
Dave Holland - contrabas
Jack DeJohnette - tobe

Kenny Wheeler’s ECM debut cut against the grain of his previously avant-garde stylistics. Dispensing here with his trusty trumpet for fluegelhorn, Wheeler carved out a niche that still leaves room for no other. The heartening tone of “Heyoke” animates our very bodies with 22 minutes of bliss. After Wheeler’s prophetic intro, Jarrett is given free reign at the keyboard, uttering ecstatic cries as he threads through Holland’s solo while also buoying Wheeler’s instinctive pickups. “Smatter” injects this trio of compositions with a hefty dose of kinetic energy that is sustained by Wheeler’s fluid brass and the tireless volleys of Jarrett. Even as the latter takes his lone passage, one feels the energy lingering like a potential leap into flight. “Gnu Suite” begins smoothly before locking into a downtempo trajectory. An unrepeatable magic occurs as Holland’s magnetic solo opens into the wider ethereal territory of his bandmates’ consecutive reappearances. And as the voices realign themselves, we feel the release of arrival, of knowing that we’ve come home. [ ecmreviews ]

"This relatively early set from Bill Frisell is a fine showcase for the utterly unique guitarist. Frisell has the ability to play nearly any extroverted style of music and his humor (check out the date's "Music I Heard") is rarely far below the surface. [ AllMusic ]

CD ECM Records John Surman: Private City

In stoc

1987

John Surman - clarinet bas, saxofon bariton si sopran, sintetizatoare

If the title of Private City comes about as close as one can get to describing the sound-world of John Surman, then that of its first piece, “Portrait Of A Romantic,” does the same for the man behind it. Its quivering recorder blankets us in warmth, fully realized by an electric piano and bubbling as the waters in a forgotten loch. A bass clarinet swims, a creature of myth remembering a time when its kind were plentiful.

CD ECM Records Dave Holland Quartet: Extensions

In stoc

1989

Dave Holland - contrabas
Steve Coleman - saxofon alto
Kevin Eubanks - chitara electrica
Marvin Smitty Smith - tobe

If you’re like me, then you’re most familiar with this album’s rhythm section from The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. From 1995 to 2006, guitarist Kevin Eubanks and drummer Marvin “Smitty” Smith were the anchors for said program’s house band. I always knew that Eubanks was a talented musician but felt that his insights were often lost in the muddled acoustics of the NBC studio in which they were situated. These conditions also boded ill, in most cases, for the show’s musical acts. In addition, for the most part Eubanks had his distortion turned high in order to achieve a certain brand of punctuation in his bantering with Leno, but I sometimes noticed that when returning from a commercial break he would be finishing a smooth jazz number, the brilliance of which I could only guess at. It wasn’t until I heard Extensions that I realized just how deep that brilliance goes. [ ecmreviews ]
