The Sirens is Chris Potter's debut as a leader for ECM but he’s no stranger to the label. He recorded as a member of Dave Holland's band, and collaborated with Paul Motian and Jason Moran on Lost in a Dream. The saxophonist’s quintet here includes pianist Craig Taborn -- a member of Potter's electric ensemble Underground -- bassist Larry Grenadier, drummer Eric Harland, and the relatively unknown David Virelles, texturing the proceedings on prepared piano, celeste, and harmonium. Creating a concept album as your first offering for a new label is a brave endeavor, but Potter rises to it. The Sirens is inspired by his re-reading of Homer's The Odyssey; he was moved by the enduring qualities of humanity in that epic, and wrote the entire album in two weeks. Potter's inherent lyricism is evident from opener "Wine Dark Sea," that offers the feel of the first romantic, tentative steps when embarking on an adventure. After a brief intro, Grenadier sets a groove articulated by Taborn, whose painterly chords offer a palette for Harland. When Potter commences the melody, that "sea" is wide open with possibility. His songlike quality is underscored by Taborn's beautiful fills and comps. Potter's tenor solo is warm, inviting, searching. "Dawn (With Her Rosy Fingers)" is introduced by Grenadier's melodic bassline and Taborn's tasteful coloration. When Potter enters, his lines become spidery, alternately inquisitive and emotionally expressive. On the title cut he plays both bass clarinet and tenor. Grenadier's bass is bowed and the sense of seductive foreboding is made plain, even as the lyric line remains mysterious and spare. The entire tune becomes a lament in revelation after the bassist's gorgeous argo solo. Potter's soprano soars in "Penelope," yet it remains, true to form, expressive of only what is necessary to communicate the music's dictates and not his considerable athleticism. The gentle sting provided by Harland and Taborn makes the tune irresistible. "Kalypso" is a taut post-bop tune with wonderful articulations from Harland, Taborn, and Grenadier locking it down even as they grow it out. The culmination of drama and sense of emotional homecoming expressed in "Stranger at the Gate" would have made it a fitting end piece -- were it not for the whispering duet between Virelles and Taborn on "The Shades" that gives the set its sense of rest and closure. Potter's vision and compositions on The Sirens never lose sight of his goal: portraying the eternal essence of humanity in the mythos of his subject; his poetic lyricism as a soloist, and his empathy as a bandleader are consummate.

1969 - Die Gitarre auf ihrem Zenit

Gab es jemals einen Moment oder eine Zeitspanne in der Geschichte, in der die kreative Aktivität an der Gitarre einen erkennbaren Höhepunkt erreichte? Einen Zeitpunkt, an dem es in der populären Musik ein Zusammentreffen von routinierten Veteranen und furchtlosem Nachwuchs gab? Eine Zeit, in der die elektrischen Gitarren am lautesten kreischten, Jazzmen neue Wege einschlugen und musikalische Kompositionen regelmäßig durch sechssaitige Reißwölfe gedreht wurden? Ein offensichtlicher Anwärter: 1969. In diesen zwölf Monaten feierten Santana, Led Zeppelin, King Crimson und The Allman Brothers Band ihre Debüts und es war auch das Jahr, in dem Creedence Clearwater Revival drei großartige Alben herausbrachten und die Charts beherrschten.

Weihnachten in 15 Alben

Sie haben keinen besonders guten Ruf. Oft werden sie unter Musikkritikern verpönt und doch werden sie von aller Welt gehört. Diese besondere Spezies der Weihnachtsalben sprießt jedes Jahr von den bekanntesten und renommiertesten Künstlern aus dem Boden. Die ersten Pop-Weihnachtstlieder, die keinen kirchlichen Bezug mehr aufwiesen, entstanden um 1934 aus Kinderliedern, wie etwa Santa Claus Is Coming to Town von Fred Coots und Haven Gillespie, das 1935 von Tommy Dorsey und seinem Orchester aufgezeichnet wurde. Mit den Croonern kamen die ersten LPs auf, die eine Sammlung an mehreren Songs für die Festtage vereinten. Hier ist eine Auswahl an Alben, die wir mit größter Sorgfalt für Sie auserlesen haben und die Ihnen die Weihnachtszeit in diesem Jahr ganz besonders schön machen soll...

Siggi Loch - In the Spirit of Jazz

Das Abenteuer ACT begann vor über 20 Jahren. Es sollte ein Label sein, das Menschen die Ohren öffnet und sie frei für neue Klänge macht. Dieses Projekt, das zu einer Zeit begann, als der Musikmarkt sich gerade stark veränderte, wurde von keinem anderen in die Wege geleitet als Siggi Loch, ein Riese in der Branche, der sich nach einer sehenswerten Karriere einen Herzenswunsch erfüllte. Am 6. August feiert er seinen 80. Geburtstag und erzählt uns im Interview, was das Geheimnis seines außergewöhnlichen Jazz-Labels ist.
