When Ralph Towner burst onto the contemporary jazz scene in the mid-70s, listeners were well aware of his awesome talent as a member of Oregon. But when Solstice was issued on the ECM label, it took the brilliant guitarist's caché to a much higher level, especially as a composer. With the otherworldly curved soprano sax and flute playing of Jan Garbarek, the precise drumming of Jon Christensen, and unique bass sounds of Eberhard Weber, the music on this album lifted the ECM/Euro-styled jazz and improvised music to a new realm of pure expressionism. Simply put -- this music is stunningly beautiful. The incredible "Oceanus" begins with Towner's cascading guitar, followed by the swelling and symphonic bass of Weber, a swinging drum line by Christensen with Garbarek's atmospheric and dramatic curved soprano layering contrasting timbres, symmetry, and unusual colors. "Nimbus" opens with some astounding technical harmonics from Towner, more so considering the acoustic nature of his instrument. A circular theme in implied 3/4 underneath 4/4 leads to overdubbed flutes from Garbarek, bowed bass, the curved soprano in 6/8 all identifying the pure ECM sound. "Piscean Dance" is a funky workout between Towner and Christensen, the earthiest track on the date, and an exercise of intuitive confluence. Other portions of the disc are space oriented like the loose, free and haunting "Red & Black," "Visitation" with multiple percussion sounds of flexatone and shakers under Weber's bowed bass and Garbarek's alien dragonfly flute, while Weber's "Sand" has the musicians staring at the Crab Nebula while firmly rooted in a strut later in the piece. Towner's wondrous piano is heard on "Drifting Petals," a pretty and pensive waltz with unison lines alongside Garbarek's flute, then Towner switches to guitar in a deeper discourse with the quartet. As cold as the Norwegian studio (Oslo) they were recording in, "Winter Solstice" is not so much profound as it is telepathic, as the players use stop-start techniques, again inserting a 3/4 rhythm into a 4/4 equation. Of the many excellent recordings he has offered, Solstice is Towner's crowning achievement as a leader fronting this definitive grouping of ECM stablemates who absolutely define the label's sound for the time frame, and for all time.

Paolo Fresu en 10 álbumes

Paolo Fresu es un río. De elegancia. De música. De ideas sonoras. De registros. Y, sobre todo, de encuentros. Aunque su nombre aparece en más de 300 álbumes, cada uno más variado que el anterior, el trompetista sardo siempre ha sido un artesano. Un artesano que nos regala un jazz lírico, refinado y elegante, ¡escandalosamente elegante! Con motivo de su 60 cumpleaños, que celebrará el 10 de febrero de 2021, hacemos un recorrido por diez álbumes, seleccionados –muy subjetivamente– de entre su vasta discografía...

Chris Connor, la voz olvidada

¿Y si la más grande vocalista de cool jazz fuera ella? Casi 12 años después de su fallecimiento Chris Connor sigue siendo considerada una de las voces más sensuales de su generación. Y es que la lista no se cierra con Anita O’Day y June Christy…

El cuarteto americano de Keith Jarrett

Al comienzo de su extensa carrera, Keith Jarrett pasó siete años experimentando como no lo había hecho antes al frente de su cuarteto americano. Con Charlie Haden, Paul Motian y Dewey Redman, el pianista dirigió, entre 1971 y 1976, una especie de laboratorio de locos, en el que se amalgamaba jazz, free pur, world y vanguardia. Un magnífico período para redescubrir.
