Blue Note has established itself as the most iconic jazz brand in the contemporary music industry. However, it’s been a while since the label has participated in the aesthetic hybridisation that characterises modern music and opened up to more multifaceted artists; for example, those who flirt with hip-hop (Robert Glasper) pop (Norah Jones) or country (Bill Frisell). This project, conceived and overseen by the great producer Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Melody Gardot, Tracy Chapman, Madeleine Peyroux—his list of collaborations is endless…) under the Blue Note banner, is unquestionably part of this trend. It pays tribute to legendary Canadian songwriter Leonard Cohen, inviting a host of prestigious singers from all stylistic backgrounds to cover some of his most beautiful songs (spanning some fifty years’ worth of recordings). Larry Klein successfully ensures the coherence and aesthetic continuity of the album by providing each vocalist with the same small ‘jazz’ band, composed around two ‘house artists’ (the great guitarist Bill Frisell and the young Afro-American saxophonist Immanuel Wilkins, the label’s rising star).


There’s no lack of taste or intensity throughout these 12 covers, alternating great hits (‘Suzanne’ by Gregory Porter, another of the label’s heavyweights; ‘Hallelujah’ by Sarah McLachlan) with lesser-known songs (‘Coming Back to You’, beautifully interpreted by James Taylor in an unusually low register; ‘You Want It Darker’, which is lifted by Iggy Pop’s vocals). No matter what you’re looking for, you’ll find it on this album. From Norah Jones to Peter Gabriel, the record certainly features an extensive musical palette… It’s hard not to fall in love with the soulful version of ‘If It Be You Will’ by Mavis Staples and the sublimely sombre cover of ‘Famous Blue Raincoat’ by Nathaniel Rateliff. This is a real artistic success! © Stéphane Ollivier/Qobuz

Tango: Sounds of the Río de la Plata

Rooted in dance and eventually becoming its very own artistic movement, the history of tango is an epic one; and its future truly looks limitless. A musical genre with hybrid origins, it remains one of the most incredible creations to come out of Río de la Plata. “It’s the only thing we don’t ask Europe for its opinion on,” wrote Argentina’s Macedonio Fernández, the man that young Jorge Luis Borges admired “to the point of devout and passionate plagiarism.” A number of coincidences in the late 19th century gave rise to this style of music. As musicologist Carlos Vega said: "no one really tried to create tango." And yet, here it is; complete with its own traditions and innovations, as well as its own golden age, ill-fated artists, myths and rituals.

Herbie Hancock - Hunt for the Funk

Along with his former employer Miles Davis, pianist Herbie Hancock is the other founding father of jazz-fusion. In 1973, his album "Head Hunters" laid down the Holy Scriptures of the most successful union of jazz improvisation and funk psychedelic trance. Afros and platform boots all around!

Keith Jarrett’s American Quartet

At the start of his busy career Keith Jarrett spent seven years carrying out all manner of crazy experiments with his American Quartet. Between the years of 1971 and 1976, the pianist, alongside Charlie Haden, Paul Motian and Dewey Redman ran some kind of mad laboratory in which the genres of hard bop, free-jazz, world and avant-garde would all come together. A spontaneous and interesting time worth rediscovering.
