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 ]

CD ECM Records Wadada Leo Smith: Divine Love

In stoc

1978

Wadada Leo Smith - trompeta, flugelhorn, percutie
Dwight Andrews - flaut alto, bas clarinet, saxofon tenor
Bobby Naughton - vibraharp, marimba, clopote
Charlie Haden - contrabas
Lester Bowie - trompeta
Kenny Wheeler - trompeta

Recently described by Vijay Iyer as “one of the greatest recorded works of all time”, Wadada Leo Smith’s Divine Love counts as a classic by any definition. “His sound has strong resemblances to that of Miles Davis,” wrote John Fordham in a five-star Guardian review, “but Smith has absorbed the approaches of all the bebop trumpet heroes and redeployed them within a bold, vital and often ritualistic setting.” The composition “Tastalun” features three outstanding trumpet players, as Lester Bowie and Kenny Wheeler join Smith, and Charlie Haden plays soulfully on “Spirituals: The Language of Love.”

CD ECM Records Dino Saluzzi: Andina

In stoc

1988
Dino Saluzzi - bandoneon

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

Dino Saluzzi’s solo bandoneon breathes songs of Andean mountain villages, family histories, the changing seasons and more, and draws you into the player’s world of memory, where chorales and tangos and waltzes resound. Saluzzi epitomises the musician-as-storyteller and his compositions on this 1988 recording paint pictures in the mind. Jean-Luc Godard responded to the implied images of Andina and used its music in both Nouvelle Vague and Histoire(s) du Cinéma.

CD ECM Records Mike Nock: Ondas

In stoc

1981

Mike Nock - pian
Eddie Gomez - contrabas
Jon Christensen - tobe

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

New Zealand-born pianist Mike Nock made significant creative contributions to new jazz with the electric group The Fourth Way at the end of the 1960s. Ondas, his sole ECM date, recorded in 1981, finds him leading an acoustic piano trio with an adroit bassist and a free-thinking drummer. Nock’s very open compositions leave plenty of space for each of them to shine. Eddie Gomez’s elastic bass is often a second lead voice in these pieces, and Jon Christensen’s pulses are felt as a succession of waves.

Marvin “Smitty” Smith - tobe, percutie

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

As well as being a mighty bassist, Dave Holland has long been a wise band leader, filling his groups with players of differing background and experience and drawing on their collected knowledge and energies. Holland recognised the individuality of Steve Coleman’s skills as soloist and composer early on and featured him in the quintet alongside veterans Kenny Wheeler and Julian Priester, who also brought in material ‒ as did the leader, whose tune “Homecoming” is among the highlights. Between them, this team could reference the whole history of modern jazz.

1984

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


Night reconvenes the guitar/keyboards/drums trio that made Abercrombie’s classic Timeless, and adds Mike Brecker on tenor sax for extra emphasis at strategic moments on an album described by the Penguin Guide to Jazz as “surprisingly funky”. All compositions are by Abercrombie apart from “Ethereggae”, the esoteric half-time shuffle tune by Jan Hammer, which opens the proceedings.

CD ECM Records George Adams: Sound Suggestions

1979

Richie Beirach - pian
Dave Holland - contrabas
Jack DeJohnette - tobe

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

George Adams made only one ECM recording, but it’s a beauty, placing his powerful tenor sax at the front of a talent-packed group, with Adams, Kenny Wheeler and Heinz Sauer all contributing compositions to the programme. “The spirit of Mingus hovers watchfully nearby; Adams is an original, though. His solos roil beneath the restraints of bebop structure, then sail wildly through the roof with a committed passion,” wrote Chicago Magazine. The tenor exchanges between Adams and Heinz Sauer are exciting, and George also delivers a very spirited vocal on “Got Something Good For You.” Recorded 1979.

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 Stephan Micus: To The Evening Child

In stoc

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

In stoc

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.

CD ECM Records Dominic Miller: Silent Light

In stoc

2017

Dominic Miller - chitara, bas electric
Miles Bould - tobe, percutie

Miller's ECM label debut offers a pleasant spin through some colorful tones of the places his travels have taken him. […] Silent Light is a recording as peaceful and evocative as its title suggests: exotic motifs convey moods from several continents, chord structures can be left ambiguous or implied rather than stated, and extra sounds are sprinkled around with a light touch only where they're judged to add something.

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 ]

CD ECM Records Dominic Miller: Absinthe

In stoc

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

In stoc

1986

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 Nils Petter Molvaer: Khmer

1997

Nils Petter Molvaer - trompeta, chitara electrica, chitara bas, percutie, sampling
Eivind Aarset - chitara electrica, efecte, ambient treatments
Ulf W. O. Holand - sampling
Morten Molster - chitara electrica
Roger Ludvigsen - chitara acustica, percutie, dulcimer
Rune Arnesen - tobe
Reidar Skar - sampling, claviaturi

ecmreviews:
"Khmer marks a monumental occasion: namely, the debut leader date of Nils Petter Molvær. Fresh off the boat of Small Labyrinths, the Norwegian trumpet player came out of left field with one of those rare albums that becomes second nature after only one listen. NPM, as he is also known, epitomizes ECM’s transcendental spirit with a collage of unbridled passion and integrity. Combining influences as diverse, if not also as intimately connected, as rock, ambient, dub, techno, and jazz, he deploys his mercurial fleet in a sea of samples, breakbeats, and smooth dives. Also carrying over from the Small Labyrinths session is hard rocker Eivind Aarset, who bookends the album with his e-bow guitar treatments and foils the delicate additions of free improviser Morten Mølster along the way. Mari Boine band regular Roger Ludvigsen adds six strings and more, playing prepared guitar and dulcimer, and along with drummer Rune Arnesen fleshes out the band’s acoustic signature. Yet it is keyboardist Reidar Skår and co-producer Ulf W. Ø. Holand who give the music just the kick it needs to hit the ground running. Holand, whose Lydlab is two floors above Oslo’s hallowed Rainbow Studio, provided samples and enough studio time to help shape the album into what it has become, while Skår brought his magic touch to said samples and others, manipulating them into an organic whole. The result is a classic that fits snugly alongside ECM’s all-time best.

CD ECM Records Bill Frisell / Thomas Moran: Small Town

Bill Frisell - chitara electrica

But, most importantly, Small Town represents the guitarist's first recorded encounter with Thomas Morgan in the intimate setting of a duo, the double bassist having first shown up on Frisell's film soundtrack homage, When You Wish Upon a Star (Okeh, 2016). As superb as When You Wish Upon a Star undeniably is, it's in the more naked, completely vulnerable environs of the duo—where the need for musical trust is, perhaps, at its most crucial—that the profound chemistry shared by these two thoroughly synchronized players becomes even clearer.

CD ECM Records Egberto Gismonti: Zig Zag

In stoc

1996
Egberto Gismonti - chitara, pian
Nando Carneiro - chitara, sintetizator
Zeca Assumpcao - contrabas


'ZigZag' is the 14th Gismonti recording to be issued by ECM and features his touring band of Nando Carneiro, who doubles on guitar and synthesizer, and bassist Zeca Assumpacao.

The trio members have been friends since the 1970's and collaborated on many projects and tours both in South America and Europe. More than 20 years after his ECM debut, 'Dança das Cabeças', Gismonti remains a category unto himself. Born in the small Brazilian town of Carmo to a Lebanese father and a Sicilian mother, he grew up in an 'international' environment .

Beginning classical piano at the age of 5, his earliest yearnings were to play and compose music in the European tradition. At the age of 20 he went to Paris to study initially with composer Jean Barraqué and later with Nadia Boulanger. Whereas Barraqué passed on his enthusiasm for Debussy, Ravel and Stravinsky to the young Egberto, Boulanger sent the aspiring composer home to reacquaint himself with his Brazilian roots.

CD ECM Records Andras Schiff - Franz Schubert: Sonatas, Impromptus

Andras Schiff - Franz Brodmann Fortepiano

Franz Schubert - Vier Impromptus D 899 (op.90)
Franz Schubert - Sonate c-Moll D 958
Franz Schubert - Drei Klavierstücke D 946
Franz Schubert - Sonate A-Dur D 959

In the latest chapter in András Schiff’s ongoing documentation of Franz Schubert’s music, the great pianist plays the Four Impromptus D 899, and compositions from 1828, the last year of Schubert’s too brief life: The Three Pieces D 946 (“impromptus in all but name” notes Misha Donat in the CD booklet), the C minor Sonata D 958 and the A major Sonata D 959. Schiff again chooses to use his fortepiano made by Franz Brodmann in Vienna, around 1820. “It is to me ideally suited to Schubert’s keyboard works,” he has said. “There is something quintessentially Viennese in its timbre, its tender mellowness, its melancholic cantabilità.” Critics have agreed, unanimous also in their praise of Schiff’s interpretations: “I cannot think of anyone of his calibre who has mastered the fortepiano as well as the modern piano and shown such distinction on both,” wrote Stephen Plaistow in an Editor’s Choice review in Gramophone. “In Schubert Schiff has a claim to be considered sovereign among today’s players, carrying forward the reading and interpretation of him into areas that others have not fully explored.”
