CD ECM Records Marc Johnson's Bass Desires: Second Sight

In stoc

Martie 1987
Marc Johnson - contrabas
Bill Frisell - chitara electrica
John Scofield - chitara electrica
Peter Erskine - tobe


ecmreviews:
"This sophomore effort from Marc Johnson’s Bass Desires comes nowhere near the octane levels of the project’s wild self-titled debut. This doesn’t mean, however, that Second Sight is no less enthralling. Its strength lies in its personnel. Guitarists Bill Frisell and John Scofield seem so well made for each other that, were they not split between the left and right channels, respectively, they might as well be thought of as some bizarre 12-stringed chunk of genius. How can we, for instance, not be moved by the sentiment of “Small Hands” and the resonant eddies of “Sweet Soul”? The latter, with its touch of Pat Metheny brightness, is especially moving. And let us not bypass the unassuming opener, “Crossing The Corpus Callosum.” Here the guitars dance on edge over the rolling hills of Peter Erskine’s drums and Johnson’s bass.

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 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.

CD ECM Records John Abercrombie, Dave Holland, Jack DeJohnette: Gateway

In stoc

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 Jan Garbarek: I Took Up The Runes

1990

Rainer Bruninghaus - pian
Eberhard Weber - bas electric
Nana Vasconcelos - percutie
Manu Katche - tobe
Bugge Wesseltoft - sintetizator
Ingor Antte Ailu Gaup - voce

ecmreviews:
"By 1990, Jan Garbarek had for decades been searching for that one key, navigating a landscape of peaks and valleys, only to find it slumbering within the runes which, with this album, he eponymously took up. [...]

Balancing note and movement, Garbarek hones something truly special in the five-part “Molde Canticle,” which draws out the album’s deepest anatomies. Above all, the piece is about time. It speaks in a language that moves us. The gyroscopic quality of Part 2 hums around the centrifugal force of Garbarek’s lyricism as he scales ever higher.

The revival of Chick Corea’s great 1960s trio with Miroslav Vitous and Roy Haynes was one of the important jazz events of the early 80s. This set, recorded live in Germany and Switzerland in 1984, includes original material by all trio members, standards, and Scriabin’s Prelude Nr. 2.

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 John Surman, John Warren: The Brass Project

In stoc

1992

John Surman - saxofon sopran si bariton, alto si bas clarinet, pian
Henry Lowther, Steve Waterman, Stuart Brooks - trompeta
Malcolm Griffiths, Chris Pyne- trombon
David Stewart, Richard Edwards - trombon bas
Chris Laurence - contrabas
John Marshall - tobe, percutie
John Warren - dirijor

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

The original conceptual idea for the Brass Project was to set John Surman’s improvising trio with bassist Chris Laurence and drummer John Marshall at the centre of a radiant brass choir of trumpets and trombones. With John Warren invited to contribute compositions and to conduct the group, the Brass Project quickly evolved into a more organic large ensemble, and by the time of this 1992 recording had become one of the most creative configurations in Britain. The elegant arrangements of Warren’s and Surman’s profoundly melodic music inspire many eloquent and touching solos.

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 David Torn: Cloud About Mercury

In stoc

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 Arild Andersen: The Triangle

In stoc

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.

Recipient of a rare 5-Star review from the Penguin Guide to Jazz, Lumi is one of the key items in the discography of Finnish drummer-composer Edward Vesala. It was the first of his ECM recordings to feature his Sound and Fury ensemble, with creative co-arranger Iro Haarla on piano and harp. “Each piece is full of melodic ideas, brilliantly scored”, wrote The Wire. A range of moods is explored, from the impressionist tone poem “The Wind” to the playful Finnish tango “Fingo,” and guitarist Raoul Björkenheim solos powerfully.

editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate
This is the first time on CD for a long-unavailable collectors’ item. With The Jewel in the Lotus, Maupin, the great multireedman, produced something visionary and, for some perhaps, joltingly unexpected: a series of mostly rubato aural paintings using piano, electric piano, bass, three drummers, multitracked saxophone, bass clarinet and flute, and trumpet on two tracks. … Soloists include Herbie Hancock and Maupin, but this is a composer’s work; ad libs and interplay notwithstanding, the ensemble is paramount.

After leaving Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi band trombonist Julian Priester and synthesizer pioneer Dr Patrick Gleeson put together this now-legendary album in two sessions in 1973. Extending the experiments of the Hancock sextet this music can also be related to Miles Davis’s robust Afro-funk-slanted electric group music of the period. Pumping bass ostinati, riffs and a big ‘tribal’ beat connect Love, Love to the music of Sly Stone and Funkadelic as well, while the shifting clouds of spacey improvising can also make a listener think of minimal music or Sun Ra. More than 40 years later this slice of proto-cyberfunk is still thoroughly enjoyable and timely.
