Bassist extraordinaire Charlie Haden has always prized diversity in his music, whether reaching for the outer limits with Ornette Coleman a half-century ago, leading his own experimental Liberation Music Orchestra or, in 2008, celebrating his roots in what's now called Americana on Rambling Boy, a Grammy-nominated album that featured contributions from Elvis Costello, Béla Fleck, and others. As they mark their 25th year together, Haden's Quartet West -- not so much a side trip at this point as a comfy base to occasionally return to -- offers up Sophisticated Ladies, a collection split between collaborations with superstar female vocalists and rich instrumentals, nearly all of it heavily orchestrated. The set expands upon the concept Haden first explored in 1999 on The Art of the Song, which utilized vocalists Shirley Horn and Bill Henderson on various film songs and standards. This time, with tenor saxophonist Ernie Watts, pianist/arranger Alan Broadbent (both mainstays of the quartet), and drummer Rodney Green, Haden goes for a lush, all-embracing sound that suggests a warm, cozy mood that reflects a time -- which may or may not ever have existed -- when life was much less hectic. The recording largely pays tribute to the romantic balladry of the mid-20th century, and Haden's choices of both material and guest artists allow him to bring that concept to fruition gloriously. Diana Krall, leading the back-to-back "Goodbye" and "Wahoo," closes out the album: the first is a whispery take on the Gordon Jenkins number that served as Benny Goodman's theme song, and the latter an uptempo swinger written by Benny Harris. Norah Jones was a natural pick for a set that values classiness and sensuality, and her "Ill Wind," penned by Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler and arranged by Haden, exudes a smoky nightclub ambience, Broadbent's piano lending a blues touch to Jones' soothing delivery. Cassandra Wilson is another inspired pick, and her interpretation of Johnny Mercer's "My Love and I," bathed in strings and elegance, is a highlight of the set. The album's other vocal performances -- by Melody Gardot, Renée Fleming, and Ruth Cameron -- are also memorable, but not to be overlooked are the non-vocal tracks. Hank Jones' bluesy "Angel Face" is simultaneously sweet and melancholy, while Steve Khun's fiery "Today I Am a Man" is the swingingest number here. And of course, Haden couldn't very well title his album Sophisticated Ladies without including Duke Ellington's "Sophisticated Lady," which matches Watts' bold saxophone licks to another luxuriant orchestration. Sophisticated Ladies does fall just short at times of mimicking a brand of saccharine faux-post-big-band jazz that flourished in the '50s and early '60s, but Haden and his team are too masterful to allow their tribute to lose its stylishness and, of course, its sophistication.

Los Grandes Angulares...
Archie Shepp: ¡Vanguardia del jazz y compromiso social!

El nuevo Jazz sigue siendo el Jazz de siempre. No hay nada realmente nuevo en él, salvo un mensaje que no podría haberse formulado antes. Y este mensaje es la verdad. Habla del sufrimiento de un pueblo. Habla de la emancipación, de la destrucción de los guetos, del fascismo.

Pat Metheny o los lenguajes infinitos de la música

Considerado uno de los grandes iconos del jazz contemporáneo, Pat Metheny ha viajado a través de numerosos proyectos sonoros con los cuales su búsqueda constante de un significado musical, de una identidad propia, ha desembocado en lugares donde la música habla por sí misma. Un largo viaje a través de la improvisación y la creación artística de uno de los grandes compositores de nuestra era.

Érase una vez... Blue Note en 10 álbumes

¡El más mítico sello de jazz se servía de los mejores ingredientes! Los mejores artistas, repertorios originales, directores artísticos con intuición, tomas de sonido excepcionales, portadas estéticamente impresionantes, eclecticismo genérico (be-bop, hard bop, soul jazz, jazz modal, free)... todo, todo estaba ahí, en las grabaciones de la escudería fundada en 1939 por Francis Wolff y Alfred Lion, dos alemanes escapados del régimen nazi. Y de su amplio catálogo Qobuz ha seleccionado diez álbumes fundamentales. Algunos han alcanzado categoría de clásicos. Otros, son maravillas subestimadas. Pero los diez son auténticamente imprescindibles y han contribuido a configurar la estética Blue Note.
