We Are on the Edge: A 50th Anniversary Celebration from Pi Recordings, represents the legendary Art Ensemble of Chicago's first studio recording in 15 years and features an expanded cast. It arrives some four months after the passing of founding member Joseph Jarman in January 2019 (he doesn't appear), leaving the band's surviving core membership of Roscoe Mitchell and Famoudou Don Moye. The Art Ensemble of Chicago has, since the very beginning, dedicated itself to African diasporic music; their motto is "Great Black Music-Ancient to the Future." Their long tenure also reflects the individual personas of its creators through jazz, advanced compositional techniques, theatrical performance, poetry, and Pan-African percussion, along with an improvisational flair and an exploratory collective persona. Comprised of two discs, this set includes a meticulous studio session and a rousing live concert captured in Ann Arbor, Michigan at Edgefest 2018. This offering is not a mere retrospective, but even its revisioning of older pieces is a startling new creation that surviving members pull off with a diverse group of 15 highly individual talents who bring their own approaches to the AEC's aesthetic lineage. They include Jaribu Shahid, Nicole Mitchell, Tomeka Reed, Hugh Ragin, Junius Paul, and many more. Together, these virtuoso musicians honor the group's history and help advance the legacy of deceased members Lester Bowie, Malachi Favors, and Jarman. Vocalist Rodolfo Cordova-Lebron opens the studio disc with his chamber-style singing of Mitchell's art song "Variations and Sketches from the Bamboo Terrace" and later delivers the two-part "Jamaica Farewell." The band delivers scorching rhythmic interplay on the completely revisioned "Chi Congo 50" (its original dates from 1972). The spoken and sung poetry of Moor Mother (Camae Ayewa) drives Mitchell's insistent title track and Moye's sprawling, trippy, and profound "Mama Koko." The interplay among players is intuitive, economic, and joyous, guided by the inspiration of the AEC's founders; individual traces are all but erased as a striking, spontaneous whole emerges in the studio. Readings of some of the previous and legacy works become different animals altogether live. The album's title track, for example, is not delivered as a celebratory exploration of sound and poetry, but as a long chamber piece with terrain eked out for free improvisation. "Oasis at Dusk" melds African folk rhythms and hard-grooving vanguard soul-jazz with a killer flute solo from Nicole Mitchell. There is also a reading of Favours' "Tutankhamun" that bridges swinging post-bop, funk, and aggressive improvisation, while the live "Mama Koko" unfolds like a folk song before spiraling into the jazz unknown. The live "Saturday Morning" is a percussive study in harmony and dynamics with swirling brass, reed, and woodwind improv adding poignancy to the beat-driven backdrop as urgent, celebratory vocal ululations expressly highlight an otherwise all but hidden melodic statement. The sheer breadth of the ensemble's expression on We Are on the Edge is staggering, a strident declaration that Mitchell and Moye will carry the AEC's powerful, boundary-less creative ethos full force into its sixth decade.

Los Grandes Angulares...
ECM en 10 álbumes

«El sonido más bello después del silencio». Es la coletilla aparejada al sello ECM desde hace cincuenta años. Pero Manfred Eicher, el carismático fundador de la discográfica muniquesa, no vive «al margen del tiempo» sino, en realidad, en «un tiempo paralelo» al de la sociedad, lo que convierte a ECM en un universo tan insólito como bello donde el jazz adopta otras formas. Y es que en ECM, precisamente, Keith Jarrett, Charles Lloyd, Jan Garbarek, Chick Corea y tantos otros han grabado algunos de sus discos más intensos. Más aún que en los casos de Blue Note o Impulse!, limitarse a 10 álbumes para narrar la historia de esta escudería sin parangón se hace misión imposible. Por eso, estos diez discos seleccionados explicarán tan solo «una» de las historias posibles de ECM.

Objetivo la luna: The Dark Side Of The Moon

Álbum clave en la discografía de Pink Floyd, The Dark Side Of The Moon es el fruto de una elaboración relativamente lenta que se remonta prácticamente a 1968. A Saucerful Of Secrets (la canción principal del álbum del mismo nombre) fue, para Nick Mason, el punto de partida. Un tiempo más tarde, Ummagumma permitió la expresión de unas personalidades que se tendrían que amalgamar para conseguir el éxito. Pink Floyd continuó su búsqueda del disco ideal con Meddle, en el que la banda acentuó su dominio del trabajo en estudio, y Atom Heart Mother, antes de alcanzar el nirvana con The Dark Side Of The Moon, cuya perfección aún no ha sido nunca erosionada.

Las batallas de Nina Simone

Puede que se la considere hoy una de las voces más originales de la música jazz y soul, pero la vida de Nina Simone nunca fue un camino de rosas, porque la mujer que soñaba con ser la primera pianista clásica afroamericana nunca dejó de luchar contra los demás, contra su propia gente y contra sí misma.
