CD Naim Hobgood, Torff, Wertico: State Of The Union

1999

State of the Union

Laurence Hobgood - pian
Brian Q.Torff - bas
Paul Wertico - tobe, percutie

"In 1997, a remarkable new trio staffed by pianist Laurence Hobgood, bassist Brian Torff and drummer-percussionist Paul Wertico released a striking debut, Union. The shimmering textures and haunting lyricism of that CD signaled that a potentially important jazz trio had arrived and instantly stoked interest in a follow-up recording. To listeners who value this trio, and there are many, two years seemed like a long time between releases, but State Of The Union was well worth the wait. Here are three remarkably spontaneous improvisers unafraid to veer between simple diatonic melodies and provocative splashes of dissonance, between gently swinging rhythms and free-form, unmetered statements. The thrust of this recording, as with Union, is on translucent ensemble sound, delicately stated lyricism, an Impressionistic approach to color and an unusual degree of introspection and contemplation. With unmistakably original compositions (by each of the musicians), Hobgood/Torff/Wertico sounds like no other trio working today, and that alone is an impressive achievement."

Jazz Times

"This piano trio gets a unique sound by stretching things beyond customary limits via timbre, dynamics, voicings, but never bend basic harmonic or rhythmic rules to speak of. Daring and conservative at once, and quite creative in their chosen range. Hobgood is as Bleyful as Evansesque, with an ear for unexpected harmonic tension. These three work amazingly well together for a studio combination, and the choice of material is excellent."

CD Naim Laurence Hobgood: Left To My Own Devices

2000

Laurence Hobgood - pian
Kurt Elling - voce

For Laurence Hobgood's debut recording as a leader, he has chosen the solo piano format. It's a challenge for the most skilled of performers, but for the clearly brilliant Hobgood, it all seems as pure and natural as the driven snow of his native Chicago. Ideas easily tumble forth, rearrangements of standards sound renewed and revived, while the original material he plays is infused with a playful intensity and in many instances classical quality. His regular running mate vocalist Kurt Elling appears on four selections as crooner, wise man or surreal romantic soothsayer. Meanwhile it is Hobgood, as impressive a player as there is anywhere, who commands total attention.

CD Naim Laurence Hobgood: When The Heart Dances

2008

Laurence Hobgood - pian
Charlie Haden - bas
Kurt Elling - voce

Kurt Elling's long-time pianist, Laurence Hobgood, is no stranger to leading a recording session. He has released four previous recordings on Naim Jazz in the last 10 years. He is a durable pianist, a bit of a cross between Red Garland and George Winston, with a smidge of Bill Evans thrown in for seasoning. On When the Heart Dances, Hobgood duets with bassist Charlie Haden and is joined by Elling on three of the eleven selections. [AllAboutJazz]

"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 Miroslav Vitous: Journey's End

1982

Miroslav Vitous bas
John Surman saxofon sopran si bariton, bas clarinet
John Taylor pian
Jon Christensen tobe

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

This quartet was the primary context for the Czech bassist Miroslav Vitous’s creativity in the late 70s and early 80s. “Like Mingus, Vitous is a real leader from the bass, and the music is all the stronger for it” – Gramophone. With three excellent writers in the line-up (John Surman and John Taylor as well as the leader) the quartet had an abundance of material to draw upon. Journey’s End includes “U Dunaje U Prešpurka” which Miroslav had played with the Junior Trio with Jan Hammer, as well as Surman’s Thomas Hardy-inspired ballad “Tess”, and Taylor’s “Windfall”. Collective improving capacities are to the fore on “Carry On, No. 1” which builds on the template of Jon Christensen’s drum patterns. Recorded 1982.

CD Decca Strauss - Salome ( Solti - Nilsson, Stolze ) CD + BluRay Audio

1962 - ( Birgit Nilsson, Gerhard Stolze, Grace Hoffman, Eberhard Wachter, Wiener Philharmoniker, dirijeaza Georg Solti ) -

There may have actually been “greater” Salomes in recordings of Salome; Hildegard Behrens is arguably more insightful, and Montserrat Caballé more kittenish and vocally opulent–but Nilsson is in a class by herself. Normal human beings–even great singers who seem supernatural–have flaws; Nilsson has none. You never worry whether she will find the center of a note or end the long-breathed phrase gallantly–she always does. Now that Decca has returned the original, grotesque photograph of her to the cover, you’ll know what to expect. -- Robert Levine, ClassicsToday.com

CD Deutsche Grammophon (DG) Verdi - Traviata ( Kleiber, Cotrubas, Domingo ) CD + BluRay Audio

Kleiber, the great Berlin-born conductor, finds a happy medium in his splendid "Traviata," with Ileana Cotrubas as Violetta and Plácido Domingo as Alfredo, both superb. His tempo for "Un dì felice" has a gentle gait, a bit slower than Toscanini¿s. The restraint allows the singers a little more room to stretch and bend the lines. As the voices blend during the final phrases, they sing with delectable pianissimo tenderness, especially Mr. Domingos.
Record Review / Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times

Our favorite recording, from Deutsche Grammophon, has a superb cast, that includes Romanian soprano Ileana Cotrubas as an incredibly touching Violetta, Plácido Domingo as Alfredo and Sherrill Milnes as Germont. Carlos Kleiber and the Bavarian State Opera orchestra stir up the passions as few others have on disc.

CD ECM Records John Surman: Adventure Playground

1992

John Surman - saxofoane, bas clarinet
Paul Bley - pian
Gary Peacock - bass
Tony Oxley - drums

< ecm reviews.com >
John Surman’s Adventure Playground is an appendix to Paul Bley’s previous quartet efforts, only now we find them in the company of bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Tony Oxley. And while the session does drip with the same brooding viscosity one would come to expect, the added colors of Oxley enhance the music’s inner states with endless novelty. Take, for instance, the anthemic frenzy he builds in his sole compositional contribution, “Just For Now,” by which he holds smelling salts under the nose of the listener’s attention. And again in Surman’s “Quadraphonic Question,” a lumbering yet somehow airy thing to which the rules of interpretation can only bow in appreciation of their own dismantling, his talents are especially brilliant, describing a host of people and places in bursts of expansive inquiries while managing to give those delicate soprano lines all the room they need to weep.

"Cat ‘n’ Mouse introduces a streamlined quartet from the ever-extraordinary John Abercrombie. The guitarist is again joined by violinist Mark Feldman, whose peerless fluidity worked wonders on Open Land. In fact, the Abercrombie-Feldman nexus was what set the current project in motion, manifesting that former album’s title with even greater intuition. Flanked by longtime ally Marc Johnson on bass and drummer Joey Baron, the stage is set for a smooth ride through Abercrombie’s rich compositions and freer realization. [ ecmreviews ]

1976

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.

2003

Arild Andersen contrabas
Vassilis Tsabropoulos pian
John Marshall tobe

For a player with a background in classical music, pianist Vassilis Tsabropoulos has done wonders in the realm of jazz, and specifically improvisation. He still plays with a precise, sensitive touch and measures out dissonance in carefully metered pinches, but the tidal ebb and flow that characterizes this trio recording stands as remarkable evidence that he’s made the transition completely and elegantly. .. All three musicians on Triangle are active and forward players. John Marshall favors reinforcing the beat… Andersen, who has 15 recordings to his credit as a leader, plays with the confidence of a seasoned veteran and utilizes his deft and limber dexterity to connect the dots in counterintuitive ways.
