    Tags: ECM, John Abercrombie   

    From ECM: “Open Land-Meeting John Abercrombie” DVD Release 

    New from From ECM

    1

    An intimate portrait of a great guitarist, filmed near the end of his musical journey. Here we see John Abercrombie gigging with Gary Versace and Adam Nussbaum in Lichtenstein, jamming with Rob Sheps, Eliot Zigmund and David Kingsnorth in New York, teaching music students at Purchase College, talking guitars with NYC luthier Ric McCurdy, and hanging out at home with wife Lisa and Al the cat. Along the way John reflects, with characteristic good humor, on a creative life lived outside the mainstream and traces his story from his first encounter with an electric guitar onwards. Subtly combining and contrasting images and sound, director Arno Oehri achieves a fine balance between music passages and interviews. The film’s soundtrack includes, in addition to the live performances, selections from many of John Abercrombie’s ECM recordings.

    From ECM: “Mark Turner tenor saxophone Ethan Iverson piano” 

    New from From ECM

    From ECM which might just be the finest recording company in the world.

    1

    The initial musical connection between saxophonist Mark Turner and pianist Ethan Iverson was made in 1990s jam sessions in New York City, with both going on to individual success – Iverson in hit trio The Bad Plus and Turner as a solo leader and in such groups as the trio Fly (recording in both capacities for ECM). A decade after their first meeting, the saxophonist and pianist began an association in the Billy Hart Quartet, the two players featuring sympathetically on two widely lauded ECM albums by that band. Now with Temporary Kings – their debut on record as a duo – Turner and Iverson explore aesthetic common ground that encompasses the cool-toned intricacies of the Lennie Tristano/Warne Marsh jazz school, as well as the heightened intimacy of modernist chamber music. The album presents six originals by Iverson (such as the nostalgic solo tune Yesterday’s Bouquet) and two by Turner (including Myron’s World, which has acquired near-classic status among contemporary jazz players). There’s an off-kilter blues (Unclaimed Freight) and a strikingly melodic, almost Ravelian opening track dedicated to the Swiss town where the album was recorded (“Lugano”), plus an interpretation of Marsh’s playfully serpentine “Dixie’s Dilemma.”

    New from ECM: “Helsinki Songs – Trygve Seim” 

    New from ECM

    ECM might just be the finest recording company in the world.

    1

    Coming Soon (31.08.2018)

    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. Here are songs referencing Igor Stravinsky and Jimmy Webb, pieces dedicated to each of Seim’s gifted bandmates, and tunes that tip the hat, obliquely, to Ornette Coleman and Bill Evans. The quartet plays superbly throughout, with outstanding solos from leader Seim and pianist Kristjan Randalu. Helsinki Songs was recorded in Oslo’s Rainbow Studio in January 2018 and produced by Manfred Eicher.

    Featured artists
    Trygve Seim Tenor and Soprano Saxophone
    Kristjan Randalu Piano
    Mats Eilertsen Double Bass
    Markku Ounaskari Drums

    When the Gustavsen Trio’s Being There was released in 2007, the Independent on Sunday wrote “this is the chill-out as a state of grace, and it can go as deep as you like. Sublime.” Over the last decade Tord has experimented with other ensemble forms and formats, but on The Other Side – recorded at Oslo’s Rainbow Studio in January 2018 – he returns decisively to the piano trio, 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.

    Tags: ECM, , Tomasz Stanko's 'December Avenue'   

    From ECM: “Discover Tomasz Stanko’s latest ECM recording ‘December Avenue'” 

    New from From ECM

    From ECM which might just be the finest recording company in the world.

    1
    December Avenue
    Tomasz Stanko New York Quartet

    Four years after the landmark album Wisława, the great Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stanko’s New York Quartet returns with another masterful recording, December Avenue. Always an insightful bandleader, Stanko here encourages spirited improvisation to flower around his characteristically melancholic and soulful themes, and all players are presented to best advantage. New band member Reuben Rogers – originally from the Virgin Islands and perhaps best-known for his work with Charles Lloyd – is a splendid addition to the team, establishing a profound understanding with Cuban-born pianist David Virelles and Detroit drummer Gerald Cleaver. JazzTimes, reviewing the band in concert, reflected on the strengths of the individual players: “Stanko has never had a piano player like Virelles. When his moments came, he configured his own lyrical domain within the world of a Stanko song. For that matter, Stanko has never had a bassist and drummer like Rogers and Cleaver, with their hard edges and their volatile energy.”

    December Avenue was recorded at Studios La Buissonne in the South of France in June 2016 and produced by Manfred Eicher.

    From ECM: Jakob Bro – “Returnings” 

    From ECM

    1
    Release date: 23.03.2018
    ECM 2546

    “Danish guitarist Jakob Bro creates magical music, impossible to categorize”, wrote Downbeat recently. On Returnings the magic is intensified as Bro and musical soul-mate Thomas Morgan reconnect with two living legends of European jazz, trumpeter Palle Mikkelborg and drummer Jon Christensen. It’s a wonderful combination: Bro’s watercolour guitar sounds, Mikelborg’s soft Milesian flugelhorn, Morgan’s impeccable choice of notes, and Christensen’s free-floating drumming . These components add up to one of the prettiest and subtlest jazz albums of recent times. Returnings was recorded in July 2016 at Oslo’s Rainbow Studio and produced by Manfred Eicher.

    Palle Mikkelborg Trumpet, Flugelhorn

    From ECM- Danish String Quartet: “Last Leaf” 

    New from From ECM

    From ECM which might just be the finest recording company in the world.

    1

    NPR Music’s Top 10 Classical Albums Of 2017
    “You don’t have to be a Scandinavian musicologist to fall in love with Last Leaf, the Danish String Quartet’s new album of Nordic folk songs and dances. The fact that the atmospheric “Drømte mig en drøm” (I Dreamed a Dream) is over 700 years old and the rollicking Stædelil is based on a Faroese medieval ballad later reworked by Beethoven is not as important as the fluency and grace that infuses these blithesome performances. In the quartet’s eloquent, but not overworked, arrangements, you can hear the shuffling feet of dancers and wheezy bagpipes. Æ Rømeser, from the Danish island of Fanø, mesmerizes, as the whirl of a polka meets a wistful melody. The band stays busy playing Brahms and Haydn — and even contemporary composers like Thomas Adès and Hans Abrahamsen, featured on a superb album released last year. But when it comes to the simple idea of a classical string quartet performing folk tunes, the Danish musicians have exceeded all expectations.”
    – Tom Huizenga

    New York Times 25 Best Classical recordings of 2017
    “It is wonderful to hear these superb players let their collective hair down in this collection of (mostly) Scandinavian folk tunes and original material composed in like fashion. This should warm the heart of every fan of fiddling, whether bluegrass, Celtic or Bachian. “
