Rezension in englischer Sprache verfügbar

The second album of Grant Green's thorough jazz-funk makeover, Green Is Beautiful finds the guitarist growing more comfortable with harder, funkier R&B than he seemed on the softer-hued Carryin' On. The switch from Fender Rhodes electric piano back to the more traditional Hammond organ certainly helps give the session a little extra grit, but it doesn't return Green to the land of soul-jazz by any means. Green Is Beautiful is still explicitly commercial and accessible to non-jazz audiences, and (purist objections notwithstanding) that's not necessarily a bad thing. Green's take on James Brown's "Ain't It Funky Now" is one of the funkiest items in his rare-groove period; it may be chordally very simple, but the groove is tight and percolating, and Green, tenor saxophonist Claude Bartee, and trumpeter Blue Mitchell all come up with hot, exciting solos. The album also benefits from Green's discovery of composer and occasional organist Earl Neal Creque, who contributes two bright, slinky, horn-driven originals: "The Windjammer," which became one of the signature tunes of Green's late period, and "Dracula." They help give the album a more original voice, and indicate that Green was actively making himself at home in his new musical environment, not just mixing dull originals with phoned-in covers of pop and R&B hits (as he and many other '70s Blue Note artists were accused of doing). Of course, there are still pop covers present -- the Beatles' "A Day in the Life" is a mellow, mid-tempo groove, and Bacharach's "I'll Never Fall in Love Again" doesn't stray far from the melody. Even if those aren't particularly distinctive, the remainder of Green Is Beautiful proves that Green's reinvention as a jazz-funk artist wasn't the misguided disaster it was initially made out to be. ~ Steve Huey

Rudy Van Gelder - Der Klang des Jazz

Rudy Van Gelder gilt als einer der größten Toningenieure in der Geschichte des Jazz und hat als eine Art Handwerker mit den größten Musikern der Nachkriegszeit für die Label Impulse!, Prestige, CTI und Savoy zusammengearbeitet.

Es war einmal Blue Note - 10 Alben

Das berühmteste Jazz-Label machte alles richtig! Hochkarätige Künstler, originelle Repertoires, raffinierte künstlerische Leiter, die sich assoziierten, einzigartige Tonaufnahmen, ästhetisch herrliche Plattencovers, vielerlei Genres (Be-Bop, Hard Bop, Soul Jazz, Modal Jazz, Free Jazz) – alles war unter den Einspielungen dieses Labels zu finden, das 1939 von Francis Wolff und Alfred Lion, diesen beiden aus dem Nazi-Deutschland geflüchteten Deutschen gegründet wurde. Aus diesem umfangreichen Katalog hat Qobuz 10 essentielle Alben ausgewählt. Einige davon sind gefeierte Klassiker. Andere wiederum sind nicht ausreichend geschätzte Wunder. Alle sind jedoch unumgänglich und haben die Blue Note-Ästhetik mitgestaltet.

Miles Davis spielt mit dem Strom

1968 lässt sich Miles Davis von den elektromusikalischen Effekten verzaubern. Im Bann der psychedelisch-revolutionären und funkigen Wandlungen eines Jimi Hendrix oder Persönlichkeiten wie Sly Stone & Compagnie mausert sich der Trompeter und erneuert damit gleich wennschon, dennschon auch den Jazz.
