Like 1998's Khmer, Solid Ether is an unusual addition to the ECM catalog, reflecting the Norwegian trumpeter's continued fascination with drum'n'bass, jungle, and other underground club genres. Molvaer's work in this idiom is indicative of a new wave sweeping Europe and Scandinavia, where boundaries between jazz and electronica are being creatively blurred by a growing number of forward-thinking artists. (The trend is catching on in the States as well.) Molvaer's trumpet is consistently in the forefront, as is the case in the music of his French contemporary, Erik Truffaz. This will inevitably prompt comparisons with Miles Davis, and Molvaer indeed credits Davis as a major influence in his musical development. The music on this record, however, sounds nothing like Davis ever played nor could have foreseen. (That said, in all likelihood he would have heartily approved.) With its driving beats, spare-to-barren harmonies, and dense atmospherics and samples, Solid Ether breaks completely with traditional notions of jazz performance. Most of its tracks segue directly from one to the next, creating a seamless "mix" in the style of much experimental dance music. While ten guest artists are credited in addition to Molvaer (including guitarist Eivind Aarset and DJ Strangefruit, aka Paal Nyhus), they don't often play clearly delineated "parts" or solos. One exception is the two-part "Merciful," which pairs Molvaer's piano with the vocals of Sidsel Endresen, bringing Annette Peacock to mind. Not everyone will "get" this kind of music, and die-hard jazzers might laugh it off as an inconsequential fad. But it's actually a seismic innovation that is just getting started. ~ David R. Adler

Le label

ECM

Le label allemand ECM (Edition of Contemporary Music) a été fondé à Munich en 1969 par Manfred Eicher, musicien accompli (études à l'Académie de musique de Berlin, puis contrebassiste à l'Orchestre philharmonique de Berlin alors dirigé par Karajan). D'abord uniquement dévolu au jazz, le label s'est rapidement imposé comme une maison de disques originale, marquée du sceau ECM, inspirée par une direction artistique engagée, souvent hardie (comme dans les disques Officium où Garbarek joue du saxophone sur des chants grégoriens interprétés par le "Hilliard Ensemble", et Proverbs and Songs où le chour de Salisbury chante l'ancien testament, accompagné de John Surman au sax...
