Seen from a distance, but also seen from up close, this is a project that's sure to raise some eyebrows. A solo trombone album isn't the kind of record that normally unleashes passions. But as this is Nils Landgren, one of the instrument's most brilliant ambassadors, we will listen well. And that's all for the better. Surprisingly, in forty years of a seriously eclectic career that has ranged from pure jazz to the most furious groove with his Funk Unit, the Swede had never recorded an album all on his own. Nature Boy is therefore a gamble of an album that owes a lot to the place where it was recorded: the church of Ingelstorps, on the Swedish coast, where the musician and his wife Bea spent months in lockdown. "Such a beautiful sound, making the tone of my trombone just fly through time and space. Bea and I looked at each other in silence, knowing that this can become something special." And it did! The site's powerful acoustics transport the trombone into a dreamlike world. There are some jazz standards here, like In a Sentimental Mood or Nature Boy but also Swedish folk numbers (with Allt under himmelens fäste and Värmlandsvisan which he sang in church as a child). This repertoire has special meaning for him, and Nils Landgren plays it with subtlety and delicacy, two sensations usually rarely associated with his instrument. This is the strength of this atypical, serene and timeless album. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

John Coltrane, the Continuous Blow(n)

Just half a century ago, the American saxophonist passed away at only 40 years old, leaving behind many recordings which have revolutionized the history of his instrument, of jazz, and also of the music of the twentieth century.

Impulse! Orange was the New Black

Along with Blue Note and Verve, Impulse! is without doubt one of the best-known American jazz labels. Painted in orange and black, the label not only brought us John Coltrane, but also some of the most adventurous musicians of the 1960s.

Bill Evans in 10 Albums

Without him, Keith Jarrett, Brad Mehldau and a few thousand other jazz pianists would play differently. Forty years after his death, the legacy of Bill Evans hasn’t lost any of its influence. On the contrary, it is difficult to sort through his bottomless discography without finding even an incidental recording that doesn’t tower above 90% of the competition. Here are 10 of his albums, subjectively selected…
