The Sirens is Chris Potter's debut as a leader for ECM but he’s no stranger to the label. He recorded as a member of Dave Holland's band, and collaborated with Paul Motian and Jason Moran on Lost in a Dream. The saxophonist’s quintet here includes pianist Craig Taborn -- a member of Potter's electric ensemble Underground -- bassist Larry Grenadier, drummer Eric Harland, and the relatively unknown David Virelles, texturing the proceedings on prepared piano, celeste, and harmonium. Creating a concept album as your first offering for a new label is a brave endeavor, but Potter rises to it. The Sirens is inspired by his re-reading of Homer's The Odyssey; he was moved by the enduring qualities of humanity in that epic, and wrote the entire album in two weeks. Potter's inherent lyricism is evident from opener "Wine Dark Sea," that offers the feel of the first romantic, tentative steps when embarking on an adventure. After a brief intro, Grenadier sets a groove articulated by Taborn, whose painterly chords offer a palette for Harland. When Potter commences the melody, that "sea" is wide open with possibility. His songlike quality is underscored by Taborn's beautiful fills and comps. Potter's tenor solo is warm, inviting, searching. "Dawn (With Her Rosy Fingers)" is introduced by Grenadier's melodic bassline and Taborn's tasteful coloration. When Potter enters, his lines become spidery, alternately inquisitive and emotionally expressive. On the title cut he plays both bass clarinet and tenor. Grenadier's bass is bowed and the sense of seductive foreboding is made plain, even as the lyric line remains mysterious and spare. The entire tune becomes a lament in revelation after the bassist's gorgeous argo solo. Potter's soprano soars in "Penelope," yet it remains, true to form, expressive of only what is necessary to communicate the music's dictates and not his considerable athleticism. The gentle sting provided by Harland and Taborn makes the tune irresistible. "Kalypso" is a taut post-bop tune with wonderful articulations from Harland, Taborn, and Grenadier locking it down even as they grow it out. The culmination of drama and sense of emotional homecoming expressed in "Stranger at the Gate" would have made it a fitting end piece -- were it not for the whispering duet between Virelles and Taborn on "The Shades" that gives the set its sense of rest and closure. Potter's vision and compositions on The Sirens never lose sight of his goal: portraying the eternal essence of humanity in the mythos of his subject; his poetic lyricism as a soloist, and his empathy as a bandleader are consummate.

Ray Charles im Wandel seines Stils

Ray Charles, der Gründervater der Soulmusik, dessen Karriere ein halbes Jahrhundert andauerte, lässt sich nicht mit einer Handvoll Hits zusammenfassen, die jeder kennt. Er ist vor allem ein Meister des musikalischen Crossover, der High-End-Variante, die aus der Vermischung von Genres eine Kunst macht, indem sie sich dem einen annähert, um das andere besser zu erschließen. Ray Charles säkularisierte den Gospel, bereicherte den Blues, spielte Jazz, sang Country und kam dem Rock'n'Roll nahe. Ein Blick auf seinen einzigartigen Stil anhand der fünf genannten Genres.

Frank Zappa, in guten wie in besseren Zeiten

Je weiter Frank Zappas Tod am 4. Dezember 1993 in die Ferne rückt, desto grausamer spürt man seine Abwesenheit in der aktuellen Musikszene. Vergessen ist er zwar nicht, aber es gibt kaum solche, die ihm das Wasser reichen könnten. Bis heute gibt es keinen anderen, grenzenlos genialen Komiker wie Frank Zappa, denn seit nahezu drei Jahrzehnten hat es niemand wie er geschafft, größten musikalischen Anspruch mit hemmungslosem Humor in Einklang zu bringen.

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 folgt der dänische Jazz gern der nordamerikanischen Tradition, 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.
