Though not as flashy as his peers, Doors' guitarist Robby Krieger belongs on the all-time-best list as both stylist and innovator. Krieger developed a unique approach to fit the organ-drums-guitar lineup behind singer Jim Morrison. A jazz fan from high school, he had seen Miles Davis, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Wes Montgomery, and more at Shelly Manne's Hole, absorbing what he could. Krieger's complex harmonic and rhythmic style employed jazz as a core part of his playing and composing aesthetic. (He wrote the hits "Light My Fire," "Touch Me," and "Love Me Two Times.") Krieger's solo discography is diverse, ranging from jazz, flamenco, and Near Eastern and modal music to blues, rock, and funk. The Ritual Begins at Sundown, his first recording in a decade, embraces Frank Zappa as its primary muse. In addition to a 21st century cover of Zappa's "Chunga's Revenge," Krieger employs several of the late musician's sidemen including producer/bassist Arthur Barrow, trombonist Jock Ellis, trumpeter Sal Marquez (who also played on Krieger's Blue Note solo debut in 1977), keyboardist Tommy Mars, and drummer Chad Wackerman. They share space with an illustrious cast of studio aces: Flutist Adrienne "Aeb" Byrne, saxophonists Vince Denham and Chuck Manning, and drummer Joel Taylor. Opener "What Was That" lays down a horn-driven jazz-funk groove with gorgeous electric piano and bass syncopations. Krieger moves on top with an array of bluesy single notes and chord voicings. "Slide Home," introduced by Byrne's lilting flute, is a gloriously understated cinematic theme for slide guitar. Krieger's reliance on melodic improvisation frames a deceptively complex compositional approach. The band embraces "Chunga's Revenge" with reverence and a sense of adventure. The opening drum kit shuffle encounters a moody bassline, while vamping horns frame explosive organ and guitar work that unfolds in a labyrinth over nearly six minutes. While Krieger doesn't attempt to copy Zappa's guitar lines, he does approximate his signature tone as he winds out a compelling solo amid the group's kinetic interplay. The fingerpopping "Hot Head" melds funk and post-bop with lovely soloing from Mars. "Yes the River Knows" appeared on the Doors' Waiting for the Sun. Its drama includes weaving a grand piano through serpentine guitar chromatics that erupt atop sweeping drums, horns, and bass into one of the record's finest solos. "The Hitch" is uncharacteristically raw, overdriven, rockist jazz-funk. Krieger turns the vamped groove up to stun in the raucous interplay. The swaggering nocturnal intensity in "Bianca's Dream" is fueled by the vamp lifted from Zappa's "Cosmic Debris." It serves to frame -- and barely keep in check -- the knotty, intricate, ensemble interactions that careen through razor-sharp funk, post-bop and hard rock. The Ritual Begins at Sundown pays affectionate tribute to Zappa's influence and spirit, but this music is also filtered through an idiosyncratic vision that balances complexity and technique with fun, the will to creativity, and an incessant urge to dance.

ECM en 10 albums

Le plus beau son après le silence. C’est la formule qui colle à la peau d’ECM depuis cinquante ans et la sortie du séminal « Free at Last » du Mal Waldron Trio, en novembre 1969. Manfred Eicher, le charismatique fondateur du label munichois, ne vit pas « hors du temps » mais plus précisément dans « un temps parallèle » à celui de la société, faisant d’ECM une planète de toute beauté où le jazz résonne autrement. Et c’est souvent pour ECM que Keith Jarrett, Charles Lloyd, Jan Garbarek, Chick Corea et tant d’autres ont enregistré leurs disques les plus intenses. Plus encore que pour Blue Note ou Impulse!, se limiter à 10 albums pour raconter toute l’histoire de ce label hors-norme est mission impossible. Aussi, les 10 sélectionnés raconteront « une » histoire d’ECM.

Miles Davis, les doigts dans la prise

En 1968, Miles Davis tombe sous le charme de la fée électricité. Envoûté par les révolutions psychédéliques et funky de Jimi Hendrix et autre Sly Stone, le trompettiste fait sa mue et, au passage, celle du jazz.

Herbie Hancock, chasse au funk

Avec son ancien employeur Miles Davis, le pianiste Herbie Hancock est l’autre père fondateur du jazz fusion. En 1973, son album "Head Hunters" établit les Saintes Ecritures de l’union la plus réussie entre improvisation jazz et transe psychédélique funk. Coupes afro et platform boots pour tous !
