CD ECM Records John Abercrombie / Ralph Towner: Sargasso Sea

In stoc

1976

John Abercrombie - chitara acustica si electrica
Ralph Towner - chitara clasica, double-six, pian

Given the contrasting but strikingly compatible talents of John Abercrombie and Ralph Towner, this album was bound to happen sooner or later. The aptly titled “Fable” best describes what these two musicians achieve together, for theirs is a tale that sounds as if it were written long ago, coalescing out of life’s improvisations into a memorable narrative. Its pairing of Towner’s 12-string with Abercrombie’s electric represents the duo in its most melodically satisfying comfort zone. We get more of the same in the title track, an uncertain travail with hints of soliloquies caressing our ears from either side, and in the relatively explosive moments of “Elbow Room.” [ ecmreviews ]

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 Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette: Bye Bye Blackbird

In stoc

1991

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

AllMusic: "This is the Keith Jarrett Trio's -- featuring bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette -- elegy for their former employer Miles Davis, recorded only 13 days after the maestro's death. The lonely figure in shadow with a horn on the cover contrasts with the joyous spirit of many of the tracks on this CD, yet there is still a ghostly presence to deal with -- and in keeping with Miles' credo, Jarrett's choice of notes is often more purposefully spare than usual.

There is symmetry in the organization of the album, with "Bye Bye Blackbird" opening and the trio's equally jaunty "Blackbird, Bye Bye" closing the album, and the interior tracks immediately following the former and preceding the latter are "You Won't Forget Me" and "I Thought About You." The centerpiece of the CD is an 18-and-a-half-minute group improvisation, "For Miles," which after some DeJohnette tumbling around becomes a dirge sometimes reminiscent of Miles' own elegy for Duke Ellington, "He Loved Him Madly."

Flamboyant trumpeter Lester Bowie was a sonic scientist with roots in R & B, the blues and carnival music: his first ECM leader disc good-humoredly explores these elements.

"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 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

1978

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 Mike Nock: Ondas

1981

Mike Nock - pian

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.

CD ECM Records John Surman, John Warren: The Brass Project

In stoc

1992

John Surman - saxofon sopran si bariton, alto si bas clarinet, pian

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 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.

Palle Mikkelborg - trompeta, flugelhorn
Peter Erskine - tobe

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

Gary Peacock’s recordings of the 1980s are production projects on which great players convened to play the bassist’s tunes. And the bass is fully a lead voice here, with title piece Guamba a Peacock solo to open the proceedings. As Paul Bley once said, “Gary is one of those rare musicians you could always count on to play better than you.” Nonetheless, there are mighty contributions from saxophone, trumpet and drums, with Jan Garbarek in particularly strong form. Jazz Forum: “Garbarek plays with magisterial power here.” Recorded 1987.

“The trumpeter sketches a succession of melodies and moods around and over the rich textural detail and earthy solidity of Mr Blackwell’s drumming,” noted Robert Palmer in The New York Times. “The melodies come from Spain, Africa, Jamaica and the modern jazz compositions of Thelonious Monk, but Mr Cherry and Mr Blackwell transform them into a personal music that is as urbane and international as they are. Together, they make El Corazón one of the most impressive duet albums of recent years.” This magical 1982 album, overflowing with character, has remained the reference recording for trumpet and drums duos.

The modestly titled Cello has a cover image by Jean-Luc Godard and much of the music featured here gradually made its way into the great director’s films. This music paints images in the mind. Blogger Tyran Grillo wrote that “David Darling’s Cello is one of the most stunning albums ever to be released on ECM in any genre. Its fluid paths feel like home. Darling plows the improvisatory depths of his soul, given free rein in the studio to paint the negative spaces in between those clouds on the album’s cover, ever deeper, ever truer to the core of something alive.” Recorded 1991 and 1992.

“I’m extremely happy about this record”, Italian trumpeter Enrico Rava told All About Jazz. “I think it’s by far the best record I ever made. Everybody on the record sounds beautiful.” The disc bears out the judgement of the Jazzpar Prize jury who had elected Rava Musician of the Year a few months prior to this 2003 recording. “Rava’s bittersweet music does not fit neatly into any one genre. He can play fiery and lyrical lines and he can generate romantic atmospheres. He may shift between abstraction and structure, but he mostly plays the trumpet with a warm, mellow sound – smooth and intoxicating.“ Enrico is also an insightful bandleader, and Easy Living alerted a wider audience to the talents of pianist Stefano Bollani and trombonist Gianluca Petrella.

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

With the nostalgic sound of electric piano, near-Minimalist repetition at times and touches of tinkle-in-the –wind percussion, Steve Kuhn’s 1974 classic Trance is not just hypnotic, it’s more melodic and more intense than you might think at first. Kuhn’s effortless-sounding keyboard technique sustains every flight of his imagination as he’s borne up on the sometimes driving, sometimes lighter-than-air floating pulse of drummer Jack DeJohnette and bassist Steve Swallow. On CD for the first time, it’s a must listen.
