CD ECM Records Anouar Brahem, John Surman, Dave Holland: Thimar

In stoc

1998
Anouar Brahem - oud
John Surman - saxofon sopran, bas clarinet
Dave Holland - contrabas

A strikingly attractive 'transcultural' project initiated by Tunisian oud virtuoso Anouar Brahem, who is both an innovator and a traditionalist in the deepest sense (he has been credited with 'restoring the sovereignty of the oud' in Tunisian music). There is no glib fusion of traditions on Thimar but rather a coming together of three very distinctive musicians who sacrifice none of their individuality in the search for common ground.

CD ACT Youn Sun Nah: Voyage

In stoc

Youn Sun Nah – voce
Ulf Wakenius – chitara
Lars Danielsson – violoncel, contrabas, melodica
Xavier Desandre-Navarre – percutie
Mathias Eick – trompeta

In our time and age, a jazz singer from Korea may still seem like an exotic concept. But anyone who knows how much effort Asian countries invest in education and promotion also knows about the growing circle of jazz fans in the region. So with notable exceptions it’s astounding that there aren’t more artists from Korea or Japan whose names are on everyone’s lips. However, Youn Sun Nah could change all that, and as the first Korean artist exclusively under contract with ACT, anyone listening to her debut album Voyage (ACT 9019-2) will understand why.

CD ACT Esbjorn Svensson Trio: Plays Monk

In stoc

1996

Esbjorn Svensson - pian
Dan Berglund - bas
Magnus Ostrom - tobe

Ten of the worlds most beloved songs by Thelonious Monk, arguably one of the truly great international piano geniuses have been lovingly laid out here by Esbjörn Svensson, one of the truly great piano talents on the Scandinavian jazz scene, and making their mark around the world as well.

In EST, who previously has released some critically acclaimed albums, we have Magnus Öström on drums, Dan Berglund on double-bass and, of course, Esbjörn Svensson himself, who was an infant, when he practically leaned to walk to the sound of "In Walked Bud". "My father was and is a great jazz lover. So I was very young when I first came in touch with Monk´s music. He’s the kind of composer that can not be avoided", says Esbjörn Svensson.

CD ACT Esbjorn Svensson Trio: Live In London

In stoc

2005

Esbjorn Svensson - pian
Dan Berglund - bas
Magnus Ostrom - tobe

this splendid release should bring a ray of happiness to old and new listeners alike. e.s.t. live in London captures the band on a magical evening when everything went right. Half the program came from the new-at-the-time Viaticum (ACT, 2005), with the remainder only a couple years older. The trio always loved taking everything beyond how it sounded on record; even the brand-new pieces weren't performed so much as explored, stretched and treated as springboards for some wondrous flights.

CD ECM Records Pat Metheny & Lyle Mays: As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls

In stoc

1981

Pat Metheny - chitara electrica, bas electric
Lyle Mays - pian , sintetizator, orga, claviaturi
Nana Vasconcelos - tobe, percutie, voce, berimbau


This joint solo effort by Metheny and regular pianist and collaborator Lyle Mays is an impressive outing. In the process of stretching out away from the confines of the quartet setting of prior albums, Metheny and Mays presage the sleeker and more ethereal sound of the band's Geffen years on portions of the title track.

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


“His sound is one of the most original and immediately recognizable on the planet,” Guitar Player magazine has noted, identified by “a majestic, echoed, singing tone with precisely articulated vibrato and nearly endless sustain, and a string-like attack via volume-pedal swells.” There is plenty of Rypdal’s signature sound on Blue in the stripped-down context of the Chasers, a band capable of being both a post-Hendrix power trio and an improvising chamber group, exploring Terje’s evocative themes.

CD Naim Antonio Forcione & Charlie Haden: Heartplay

In stoc

2006

Antonio Forcione - chitara
Charlie Haden - bas

Heartplay is a subtle and sublime collaboration. Charlie and Antonio play a combination of compositions by each other, and a beautifully sparkling track called Child's Play by Fred Hersch.

Charlie's bass sounds beautifully deep and rounded, an incredibly satisfying and symbiotic partner with Antonio's guitar. These elegant and eloquent duets are totally atmospheric and an absolute joy to listen to

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.

With its overt lyricism, strong themes and a sense of perpetual melodic invention, Norwegian saxophonist Trygve Seim’s new album quickly identifies itself as a classic-in-the-making. Themes of dedication run through Seim’s Helsinki Songs album, a set of tunes composed – for the most part – in the Finnish capital, and radiating tributes in many directions.

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 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 Barre Phillips: Mountainscapes

In stoc

1976

John Surman - saxofoane, bas clarinet, sintetizator
Barre Phillips - contrabas
Stu Martin - tobe, sintetizator
Dieter Feichtner - sintetizator
John Abercrombie - chitara

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


Barre Phillips’s Mountainscapes brings together strongly contrasting elements, the furious high-energy playing of the Surman/Phillips/Martin trio juxtaposed with spacious impressionistic pieces originally created for Carolyn Carlson’s ballet dancers. The integration of acoustic instruments and electronics (with three of the musicians playing synthesizers) is beautifully balanced in the production. John Abercrombie dropped by the studio to jam on the last track, raising the energy level still higher. Recorded in March 1976, Mountainscapes was described by Melody Maker as “vast, awesome and glorious” and “a starting point for the shape of jazz to come.”

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

In the mid-1970s there was no European jazz group more popular than the Garbarek-Stenson Quartet, and Witchi-Tai-To was voted ‘Record of the Year 1974/75’ in Jazz Forum’s poll. Down Beat gave the album a five-star review: “Those who think that contemporary music from Europe lacks soul-fire are hereby advised to listen to Witchi-Tai-To.” Bobo Stenson: “The quartet had a chemistry that I’ve very rarely known, and I look back at the whole period as a happy and creative time.” The wide-open programme includes tunes by Carla Bley and Don Cherry as well as the title track composed by Jim Pepper.

Featuring an all-star band under the leadership of the Czech bassist Miroslav Vitous, co-founder of Weather Report. Listening to the still adventurous veterans John McLaughlin, Chick Corea, Jack DeJohnette and Jan Garbarek improvise collectively, you think „my goodness, real music.” [ Mike Zwerin, International Herald Tribune ]

CD ECM Records Jan Garbarek, Anouar Brahem: Madar

In stoc

1994
Jan Garbarek - saxofon tenor si sopran
Anouar Brahem - oud
Ustad Shaukat Hussain - tabla

Despite the loveliness of these interactions, the album works best in solitary. Brahem’s contemplative solo, “Bahia,” treks over twilit mountains with aching footsteps, carrying us as if by palanquin into a vale of lost intentions. The wind of his percussiveness shakes the boughs of leafless trees and sends their dead seeds clicking to the ground like sand against a window. And in the rhythmic cast of “Jaw,” Hussain emotes lifetimes in a single beat of his tabla, thus offering some intensely lucid moments. He returns to the fold in “Qaws,” giving voice to those waiting eyes at last with solid excitement. An odd piano “Epilogue” (sounding like a chord outline for a studio track left behind) leads us out.

CD ECM Records Tord Gustavsen Trio: The Other Side

In stoc

2018
Tord Gustavsen - pian
Sigurd Hole - contrabas
Jarle Vespestad - tobe

“This is the chill-out as a state of grace, and it can go as deep as you like. Sublime,” wrote the Independent on Sunday of the Gustavsen’s trio’s Being There, released in 2007.

Over the last decade Tord has explored other ensemble forms and formats, but on The Other Side - recorded at Oslo’s Rainbow Studio in January 2018 – he opens a new chapter in his piano trio story, with faithful drummer Jarle Vespestad, and excellent new bassist Sigurd Hole. Hole’s approach to his instrument, drawing on folk influences as well as modern jazz, is ideally suited to Gustavsen’s slowly-developing, deeply melodic pieces. The album, produced by Manfred Eicher, is issued on the eve of a major tour.

CD ECM Records Keith Jarrett: The Koln Concert

In stoc

1975 - Keith Jarrett - pian

Recorded in 1975 at the Koln Opera House and released the same year, this disc has, along with its revelatory music, some attendant cultural baggage that is unfair in one sense: Every pot-smoking and dazed and confused college kid -- and a few of the more sophisticated ones in high school -- owned this as one of the truly classic jazz records, along with Bitches Brew, Kind of Blue, Take Five, A Love Supreme, and something by Grover Washington, Jr. Such is cultural miscegenation. It also gets unfairly blamed for creating George Winston, but that's another story.

CD ECM Records Stefano Battaglia Trio: The River Of Anyder

In stoc

2011

Stefano Battaglia - pian
Salvatore Maiore - contrabas
Roberto Dani - tobe

A direct and accessible statement brimming with musical riches, „The River of Anyder“ rests on an entirely different plane to Battaglia’s earlier, riskier ECM output. In using this most classic of instrumental formats, he has created a brilliant benchmark that should catapult his career onwards and upwards. [ Fred Grand, Jazz Journal ]

„Warm, vigorous and accessible, it´s a music that feels both firmly contemporary and resolutely independent of it.“ [ Ray Comiskey, Properganda ]

What a sound – a feast for the ears! Life in Leipzig presents pianist Ketil Bjørnstad and guitarist Terje Rypdal in concert. … The music is decidedly romantic in the widest sense, full of large gestures that bring forth intense emotions and vivid images that must, however, have originated from within the players.

In stoc

1978

Pat Metheny - chitara electrica si acustica, chitara harpa cu 15 corzi, bas electric

AllMusic: "When Pat Metheny's New Chautauqua first appeared in 1979, it was his third album for ECM, and was greeted mainly on the strength of its title track, a euphoric, uptempo, multi-layered guitar and bass folk dance. His previous two outings for the label, Bright Size Life and Watercolors, showcased him in the company of other musicians: on the former with Bob Moses and Jaco Pastorius, on the latter with Lyle Mays, Danny Gottlieb, and Eberhard Weber.
