Ralph Towner - Solstice
Ralph Towner
Solstice
LP | 1975 | EU | Reissue (ECM)
21,99 €*
Release:1975 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Featuring a lineup of musicians who would go on to weave ECM’s significance into the fabric of time, Solstice is a tour de force of musicianship, writing, arrangement, and recording.Each track is brimming with life and features the sensitive application of a variety of instrumental combinations and studio savvy. “Oceanus” showcases Garbarek in his prime, soaring with an unbridled emotional register. As always, Towner’s 12-string speaks in 360 degrees. Superb drumming from Christensen complements lush melodic lines from Weber, who stretches a melodic cello into infinity while his bass arises like the conical aftereffect of a water droplet. “Visitation” clouds this ardor in a nocturnal vision filled with laughing spirits. “Drifting Petals” is a slow progression, a timid look out onto a dusty plain where the promise of freedom looms larger than the possibility of danger. But then an elder’s advice rings in our ears and pushes us onward. Feet move of their volition and pull us into the ever-receding horizon as the first drops of a squall streak across our foreheads. Towner proves again that his piano musings are not to be taken lightly, as they make for one of the most evocative tracks on the album. A transcendental 12-string solo (with gentle dimensional support from Weber) opens “Nimbus,” soon blossoming into a flourish of flutes, drums, and a bowed bass that cries with the grating fluidity of a sarangi. Garbarek’s sax joins in the fray and lets loose its harmonious fire. The deftly overdubbed flutes return, spreading their wings for a few moments before fluttering off into the distance. “Winter Solstice,” “Piscean Dance,” and “Red and Black” comprise a triptych of duets: the first for classical guitar and sax, the second a prime jam for 12-string and drums, and the third for 12-string and bass. “Sand” ends our cosmic journey with one of Garbarek’s deepest meditations for sax set to the strangely compelling ululations of Christensen’s flexatone lolling about in the background.Melodically robust while structurally yielding, this is an album to be treasured and is a must-listen for anyone desiring to know what ECM is all about. An astounding meeting of musical minds if there ever was one.

LP | 2018 | EU | Original (ECM)

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Es war ein Vergnügen, Mathias Eicks schwingender, vom Klang einer Violine unterstützten Trompeteauf seinem Album Midwest zu folgen – eine instrumentale Zusammenstellung, die nun auf Ravensburgweiterentwickelt wird. Håkon Aase, ein Nachwuchstalent des neuen norwegischen Jazz, deraufmerksamen ECM-Hörern dank seiner Arbeit mit Thomas Strønen bereits bekannt sein dürfte, istder neue Geiger in Eicks Ensemble. Darüber hinaus wird die Kerngruppe um den Schlagzeuger HelgeAndreas Norbakken erweitert, der mit seinem Kollegen Torstein Lofthus in erstaunlicher Weiseinteragiert. Eick selbst läuft hier kompositorisch zu großer Form auf: in den Tiefen seiner Musikentfaltet er einen drängenden Rhythmus, den er um aufsteigende Melodien in den Höhen ergänzt – ineiner Serie von Stücken, die auf eine Art kollektives Familienporträt hinauslaufen. Produziert vonManfred Eicher, wurde Ravensburg im Osloer Rainbow Studio im Juni 2017 aufgezeichnet. Eserscheint unmittelbar vor einer Europatournée
Andy Sheppard Quartett - Romaria
Andy Sheppard Quartett
Romaria
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (ECM)
20,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Mit Romaria dehnt das Quartett um Andy Sheppard seine musikalischen Erkundungen aus, die es2015 mit Surrounded By Sea – von der frz. Zeitschrift Télérama für seine „durchdringendeGelassenheit” gerühmt – begonnen hat. Auf dem Programm stehen Kompositionen von Sheppard,dazu das titelgebende Stück des brasilianischen Singer-Songwriters Ranato Teixeira. Gitarre undElektronik von Eivind Aarset erzeugen ein improvisationsfreundliches Klima, abgerundet durch diebesondere Akustik des Auditorio Stelio Molo RSI in Lugano. So gewinnt die Musik einen starkatmosphärischen Einschlag, den Sheppard als sichtlich befreiend empfindet – genauso wie MichelBenita und Seb Rochford, die sich von rhythmischen Konventionen lösen und ihren ganz eigenenPassionen hingeben. Romaria wurde im April 2017 aufgenommen und von Manfred Eicher produziert.

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Trumpeter Avishai Cohen leads a quartet consisting of pianist Yonathan Avishai, bassist Barak Mori, and drummer Nasheet Waits. A year after his impressionistic, critically-lauded ECM debut Into The Silence, trumpeter Avishai Cohen's Cross My Palm With Silver introduces a program of new pieces which put the focus on the ensemble, on teamwork, with a quartet of the highest caliber. The adroit, almost telepathic interplay among the musicians allows Avishai Cohen to soar, making it clear why he is one of the most talked-about jazz musicians on the contemporary scene. "All of these people together are my dream team", says the charismatic trumpeter of fellow players Yonathan Avishai, Barak Mori and Nasheet Waits, who share his sense for daring improvisation and his feeling for structure. "I feel we're in a perfect place with the balance. It's open and there's so much room for the improvisation to take the music any place we can. At the same time the composition is very specific and the vibe is very direct and thought about." As with Into The Silence, Cross My Palm With Silver was produced by Manfred Eicher at Studios La Buissonne in the south of France.180g Vinyl LP comes with download code.Musicians:Avishai Cohen, trumpetYonathan Avishai, pianoBarak Mori, double bassNasheet Waits, drums
Gary Burton & Chick Corea - Crystal Silence
Gary Burton & Chick Corea
Crystal Silence
LP | 1973 | EU | Reissue (ECM)
21,99 €*
Release:1973 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
The Corea/Burton duo was brought together by producer Manfred Eicher, and “Crystal Silence” brought a new chamber music sensibility into jazz improvisation, distinguished by an effervescence of melody and countermelody, with synchronized cascades of sound in continually changing harmonic movement. It all begins here, with “Crystal Silence”. The title says it all: silence crystallized into dazzling melodic gems, each its own prismatic doorway into improvisatory translucence. Corea offers a fine set of five compositions (the most notable being the slick opener "Señor Mouse"), along with three beautifully realized tunes by bassist Steve Swallow ("Arise, Her Eyes" being a personal favorite), and another by Mike Gibbs (the somber "Feelings And Things"). In spite of the variety of voices represented here, the album grows like one long, extended story, a dynamic that seems to shadow the musicians wherever they set foot. The title track is a subdued tour de force in style, presentation, and content. "Falling Grace" (Swallow) is one of the shorter pieces on tap, but what it lacks in time it makes up for in exhilaration. The album ends with an instrumental version of another Return classic, "What Game Shall We Play Today." Each piece is rendered with such dynamic sensitivity that one can immediately recognize the effect Crystal Silence must have had when originally released, and no doubt continues to have to this day. Connected as they are by the same mellow fuse, these tunes need hardly a spark to set them to glowing.
Jan Garbarek - Places
Jan Garbarek
Places
LP | 1978 | EU | Reissue (ECM)
21,99 €*
Release:1978 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
“Places” is an important album for the Norwegian saxophonist with its stellar transatlantic line-up. “Places” brings together another congregation of musicians that could only come from ECM. Drummer Jack DeJohnette lassoes his scurrying loops to the acoustic hooks of guitarist Bill Connors, while John Taylor supplements most of the cargo with organ. At the helm of this vessel is Jan Garbarek, whose saxophonism starts high and goes only higher. With cumulative notecraft and a heartfelt commitment to atmosphere, he and Taylor unwrap a lush nexus in the stunning opener. The occasional harmonic falls like a dandelion seed onto this pool of night as cymbals splash all around us. Taylor weaves a fine spread, anchoring us with sustained bass lines and attentive chording, leaving Garbarek to seal every crack with his sonic caulk. Connors seeks to light his surroundings, striking at the flint with his percussive gesticulations in hopes that one spark might show the way. Garbarek sharpens himself with arid flavor and carves out a miniature oasis in the crumbling image of exotic desire. The organ weaves in and out like a halo circumscribing us with subtle urgency until it pulls us beyond the point of no return, where dwells only silence in these “Reflections.” We then find the organ “Entering” into an electric guitar embrace. Bass and drums give us footholds where we might not expect to find them. Thus, what began as an elegy turns into a far-reaching journey that is over too soon. But in the next track we’re still “Going Places,” spurred by DeJohnette’s steady pulse and Garbarek’s hidden thermals. The energy comes in waves, subsiding here for a guitar solo and swelling there at Garbarek’s call. “Passing” ends where the album began, in a fluid ostinato of organ over which Connors looses his wavering song. Garbarek draws an ascendant pattern between those quiet strings, lifting us to an arena in which age curls into a semblance of time.

The 1977 released album is considered to be the crowning achievement of Jarrett's American Quartet consisting of himself, Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden and Paul Motian."A brilliantly organized and full-blooded work... a very complete record. It creates its own universe and explores it thoroughly, leaving the listener awed and satisfied... An unashamedly ardent album." - Melody Maker"The labyrnthine composition seems to redefine 'intensity' each time it turns a corner. The drive toward the climax of Side Two is among the most moving in modern music." - The Wire
