This time capsule, recorded in 1959 in Rudy Van Gelder's Hackensack, NJ, living room and left undisturbed in the Blue Note vaults until now, contains the essential DNA of the first flowering of hard bop in the late '50s. All the genre hallmarks are present: There are intricate chase-scene originals and clever arrangements (the standard "Close Your Eyes") and brash blues-inflected outbursts that light up the solos. And yet, transcending those individual traits, defining not just the notes but the very spirit of the endeavor, is a quality that doesn't get discussed enough in jazz—precision, as in persnickety dotted i's and crossed t's.

At times it's downright startling hearing these five musicians nail the details to the wall. They're hardly "just coolin'" here; they're attentive to the small nuances of tunes that might have been written the morning of the session. You can detect the commitment in the pitch-bending doiiiits and the staccato single-note jabs, in the explosion of a long-cresting press roll and the deliberate, nothing-extra stride of a Blakey-trademarked medium-tempo swing. You can hear it in the way trumpeter Lee Morgan and tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley phrase together, adding grace notes that are almost inaudible but key nonetheless. And you can't miss it in the thrillingly open lanes where the solos happen. Blakey was revered for the communication he cultivated between musicians; using a repertoire of hits and jabs, he pulled his collaborators into rich, sometimes boisterous discussions, a mode of interplay that in many ways defines hard bop.

There are plenty of examples on this record, but perhaps the most crystalline comes during Morgan's first few choruses on "Jimerick," a blazing uptempo blues. He begins with a short inversion of the theme, first restating it in a lazy way. Then he articulates more aggressively, as though trying to establish consensus on the tempo. Blakey picks that up, and jabs out an even sharper response from the metal rim of the snare drum. That unleashes some mean Morgan double-time bebop; what began as a single-note bugle call becomes an intricate conversation. Each element of that conversation is notable for its clarity, and each new soloist contributes to it in a different way—check the unhurried, wonderfully lucid way Mobley carves up the opening "Hipsippy Blues." The tune is one of three originals Mobley wrote for the date, and if it's familiar that's because it was included on a monumental live recording captured a few months later—At the Jazz Corner of the World, a fiery and complex document that's become part of the "essential listening" jazz canon. Just Coolin', which is apparently the only other recording of this short lived incarnation of the group, might be a step below that in terms of intensity. But only a step. © Tom Moon/Qobuz

Es war einmal Blue Note - 10 Alben

Das berühmteste Jazz-Label machte alles richtig! Hochkarätige Künstler, originelle Repertoires, raffinierte künstlerische Leiter, die sich assoziierten, einzigartige Tonaufnahmen, ästhetisch herrliche Plattencovers, vielerlei Genres (Be-Bop, Hard Bop, Soul Jazz, Modal Jazz, Free Jazz) – alles war unter den Einspielungen dieses Labels zu finden, das 1939 von Francis Wolff und Alfred Lion, diesen beiden aus dem Nazi-Deutschland geflüchteten Deutschen gegründet wurde. Aus diesem umfangreichen Katalog hat Qobuz 10 essentielle Alben ausgewählt. Einige davon sind gefeierte Klassiker. Andere wiederum sind nicht ausreichend geschätzte Wunder. Alle sind jedoch unumgänglich und haben die Blue Note-Ästhetik mitgestaltet.

Siggi Loch - In the Spirit of Jazz

Das Abenteuer ACT begann vor über 20 Jahren. Es sollte ein Label sein, das Menschen die Ohren öffnet und sie frei für neue Klänge macht. Dieses Projekt, das zu einer Zeit begann, als der Musikmarkt sich gerade stark veränderte, wurde von keinem anderen in die Wege geleitet als Siggi Loch, ein Riese in der Branche, der sich nach einer sehenswerten Karriere einen Herzenswunsch erfüllte. Am 6. August feiert er seinen 80. Geburtstag und erzählt uns im Interview, was das Geheimnis seines außergewöhnlichen Jazz-Labels ist.

Rudy Van Gelder - Der Klang des Jazz

Rudy Van Gelder gilt als einer der größten Toningenieure in der Geschichte des Jazz und hat als eine Art Handwerker mit den größten Musikern der Nachkriegszeit für die Label Impulse!, Prestige, CTI und Savoy zusammengearbeitet.
