After recording a string of experimental easy listening albums that explored everything from pop songs to classical music, Hugo Montenegro focused his skills on interpreting the work of one composer on 1974's Hugo in Wonder-Land. This time, Montenegro reinterpreted the work of Stevie Wonder in an instrumental format, focusing mainly on material from his early-'70s renaissance, but also throwing in a few more classically Motown-styled items from his late-'60s period. To stay in touch with Wonder's then-current style, Montenegro made extensive use of ARP and Moog synthesizers on a number of the tracks. The end result is a little campy here and there, but often quite effective. Hugo in Wonder-Land is at its best when it plays the material straight: an effectively jazzy rendition of "Too High" swings with abandon and the mellow, string-enhanced version of "All Is Fair in Love" that closes the album is quite lovely. The transformations of the songs to purely instrumental affairs also shows off how strong these songs are as pure music: a good example is "Living for the City," which reveals the stomping, funky melody that was hidden beneath that song's social-consciousness story lyric. The problem that keeps Hugo in Wonderland from being uniformly excellent is that Montenegro occasionally gets carried away with his use of electronics; the effectiveness of the album's versions of "Superstition" and "You Are the Sunshine of My Life" is hampered by the kitschy, sci-fi synthesizer lines that dominate their arrangements. Despite this problem, the album remains a unique and likable affair that will entertain lounge enthusiasts and provide an interesting curio for Stevie Wonder completists.

Henry Mancini, Mann mit Stil

Raffiniert, humorvoll, sensibel…Mit diesen Worten wird oft Henry Mancinis Musik beschrieben. Auch 23 Jahre nach seinem Tod gilt er immer noch als einer der größten und einflussreichsten Filmmusikkomponisten. Der Grund liegt wohl darin, dass er neben sanft klingenden, leichten Werken, die ihn berühmt gemacht haben ("Frühstück bei Tiffanys", "Der rosarote Panther"…), zugleich mit dynamischeren Kompositionen auch die komplexere Variante seiner musikalischen Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten zeigen konnte.

Paolo Fresu in 10 Alben

Bei Paolo Fresu gibt es alles in Hülle und Fülle: Eleganz. Musik. Klanggefüge. Aufnahmen. Vor allem Begegnungen. Sein Name steht auf mehr als 300 Alben verschiedenster Art. Dennoch bleibt der sardische Trompeter seinem lyrischen, raffinierten und geradezu unerhört eleganten Jazz treu. Anlässlich seines 60. Geburtstags am 10. Februar 2021 stellen wir zehn ausgewählte Alben vor.

Skandinavischer Jazz in 10 Alben

Winterliche, weite Landschaften, majestätische Natur... Skandinavien wird oft auf die ewig gleichen Klischees reduziert. Beim Jazz ist es genauso. Dabei kommt der dänische Jazz gern der nordamerikanischen Tradition ins Gehege, in Norwegen ist man experimentierfreudig, während in Schweden unentschieden zwischen den Stilen manövriert wird. Trotz aller Unterschiede spricht man vom skandinavischen Jazz immer wie von einer großen Familie. Seit Anfang der 70er Jahre haben die Musiker, die aus der Kälte kamen, den Jazz durch ihre Originalität geprägt, die von der heutigen Generation weitergegeben wird. Lassen Sie uns diese Patchwork-Familie in den folgenden 10 Alben näher betrachten. Sie wurden ganz subjektiv aus einer Diskographie ausgewählt, die unermesslich ist wie ein Fjord.
