Chilean tenor saxophonist and composer Melissa Aldana was the first female to win the Thelonious Music International Institute's competition for saxophone. Though her two previous recordings were noteworthy as showcases for her soloing and compositions, it is with Crash Trio -- Chilean bassist Pablo Menares and Cuban drummer Francisco Mela (both are also composers) -- that she shines brightest. Save for readings of Harry Warren's "You're My Everything" and a tenor solo on Monk's "Ask Me Now," the entire program was written by the trio's various members. Aldana possesses a big, earthy, edgy tone deeply influenced by Sonny Rollins, but her phrasing is her own. While swinging post-bop is predominant, forward-thinking harmonic ideas informed by composers/musicians Kurt Rosenwinkel and Mark Turner add balance to the attack. Aldana's "M&M" features a stellar walking bassline from Menares and a tight, hard-grooving head from the saxophonist. She explores its various individual elements, recombining them and moving them afield in her solo. The long, folk-like bass solo intro to Menares' "Tirapie" is gorgeous and gives way to a minor-key, midtempo, Latin-tinged ballad that showcases the canny interplay of the rhythm section. Aldana's solo is nearly song-like. Mela's "Dear Joe" kicks off with a bright, Caribbean rhythmic signature, and Menares and Aldana paint a knotty, joyous carnivalesque melody. The taut arpeggios in the saxophonist's solo take place in all three registers with soulful verve as Mela's accents, fills, and rimshot rolls -- alongside his cruising ride cymbal -- create an infectious, nearly danceable groove. Aldana's "New Points" is breezily and gently informed by Brazilian samba. On the Monk tune, she displays tremendous control and an avid imagination that keeps the composer's melody firmly at the root of her investigation. Melissa Aldana & Crash Trio is fresh, sophisticated, invigorating modern jazz that deserves notice for its fine tunes and seamless execution.

Les Grands Angles...
Jazz : où sont les femmes ?

A l’exception des chanteuses, les femmes du jazz ont dû batailler ferme pour se frayer un chemin vers le devant de la scène. De Mary Lou Williams à Jaimie Branch en passant par Geri Allen ou Alice Coltrane, elles sont finalement assez peu nombreuses à s’être imposées dans un genre resté presque exclusivement masculin. Et toujours aussi macho ?

Miles Davis en 10 albums

Plus de trente ans après sa mort, Miles Davis reste l’un des musiciens les plus importants de son temps. L’impressionnante discographie du trompettiste américain reflète à la perfection ses perpétuelles remises en question et son influence au-delà de la sphère jazz. La preuve en dix albums choisis subjectivement dans un océan de révolutions esthétiques.

Lee Morgan, souffle court

Des hauts (sur ses disques) et des bas (dans sa vie) : Lee Morgan (1938-1972) fut le grand trompettiste du label Blue Note. Une carrière fulgurante parmi les géants du jazz, stoppée net par le pistolet de son ex-femme…
