The seven-time Grammy award-winning tenor saxophonist, Michael Brecker brings an all-star band together on this first ever ballad project titled Nearness of You: The Ballad Book. Accompanied by Herbie Hancock on piano, Pat Metheny on guitars, Charlie Haden on bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and a special guest appearance by James Taylor, singing his sensational hit "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight" and Hoagy Carmichael's "The Nearness of You," the tenor saxophonist creates rich resonant statements on 11 songs collected in two chapters and their epilogue. Brecker has updated these great songs with the addition of Pat Metheny's excellent production prowess on such great ballads as Joe Zawinul's "Midnight Mood" and the Kurt Weill-Ira Gershwin standard "My Ship." "Midnight Mood" is sensual and seductive, complete with a blithe piano solo by Herbie Hancock in the middle section. Hancock fills in the beauty of Brecker's saxophone lines on this arrangement that is partially based on guitarist Wes Montgomery's version. James Taylor sings one of the best renditions of his "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight," and it's clearly due to the excellent musicians on this CD. Pat Metheny excels as a serious jazz artist with his well thought out treatment of "Nascente," which was inspired by Gil Evans' classic 1948 arrangement for Miles Davis on Miles Ahead. Michael Brecker has clearly maintained his status as one of the best tenor saxophonists on the jazz scene, and this, his eighth CD as a leader, is well within the musical excellence previously recorded.

Les Grands Angles...
Saxophone : les ténors du ténor

Comment le saxophone, cet instrument inventé par un Belge pour les orchestres militaires est-il devenu l’apanage d’un genre ? Comment les jazzmen ont-ils fait main basse sur l’invention d’Adolphe Sax ? Premier volet d’une série consacrée aux géants de l’instrument, en commençant – à tout seigneur tout honneur – par le ténor et ses nombreux adeptes, de Coleman Hawkins à Wayne Shorter.

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.

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 ?
