Criss-Cross -- Thelonious Monk's second album for Columbia Records -- features some of the finest work that Monk ever did in the studio with his '60s trio and quartet. Whether revisiting pop standards or reinventing Monk's own classic compositions, Monk and Charlie Rouse (tenor sax), John Ore (bass), and Frankie Dunlop (drums) exchange powerful musical ideas, as well as provide potent solos throughout the disc. Fittingly, "Hackensack" -- a frenetic original composition -- opens the disc by demonstrating the bandleader's strength in a quartet environment. The solid rhythmic support of the trio unfetters Monk into unleashing endless cascades of percussive inflections and intoxicating chord progressions. The title cut also reflects the ability of the four musicians to maintain melodic intricacies that are at times so exigent it seems cruel that Monk would have expected a musician of any caliber to pull them off. "Tea for Two" showcases Monk's appreciation for the great stride or "walking" piano style of James P. Johnson and Willie "The Lion" Smith. The arrangement here is lighter, and features a trio (minus Rouse) to accent rather than banter with Monk's splashes of magnificence throughout. Likewise, Monk's solo on "Don't Blame Me" is excellent. The extended runs up and down the keyboard can't help but reiterate the tremendous debt of gratitude owed to the original stride pianists of the early 20th century. The 1993 compact disc pressing of Criss-Cross sounds great and adds a version of "Pannonica" that was previously unissued at the time. Unfortunately, however, the liner notes originally used on the album jacket -- penned by "Pannonica"'s namesake, Baroness Nica de Koenigswarter -- were replaced by those of a writer for Rolling Stone magazine. This is prime Monk for any degree of listener.

ECM en 10 albums

Le plus beau son après le silence. C’est la formule qui colle à la peau d’ECM depuis cinquante ans et la sortie du séminal « Free at Last » du Mal Waldron Trio, en novembre 1969. Manfred Eicher, le charismatique fondateur du label munichois, ne vit pas « hors du temps » mais plus précisément dans « un temps parallèle » à celui de la société, faisant d’ECM une planète de toute beauté où le jazz résonne autrement. Et c’est souvent pour ECM que Keith Jarrett, Charles Lloyd, Jan Garbarek, Chick Corea et tant d’autres ont enregistré leurs disques les plus intenses. Plus encore que pour Blue Note ou Impulse!, se limiter à 10 albums pour raconter toute l’histoire de ce label hors-norme est mission impossible. Aussi, les 10 sélectionnés raconteront « une » histoire d’ECM.

Le quartet américain de Keith Jarrett

Au début de sa dense carrière, Keith Jarrett passa sept années à expérimenter comme jamais à la tête de son quartet américain. Avec Charlie Haden, Paul Motian et Dewey Redman, le pianiste dirigera, entre 1971 et 1976, une sorte de laboratoire fou dans lequel se caramboleront hard bop, free-jazz, world et avant-garde. Une parenthèse spontanée à redécouvrir.

Il était une fois Blue Note en 10 albums

Le plus célèbre des labels de jazz avait tout bon ! Artistes cinq étoiles, répertoires originaux, directeurs artistiques associés ingénieux, prise de son d’exception, sublime esthétique des pochettes, éclectisme des genres (be-bop, hard bop, soul jazz, jazz modal, free), rien ne manquait à l’appel des enregistrements de l’écurie lancée en 1939 par Francis Wolff et Alfred Lion, deux Allemands ayant fui le régime nazi. Dans cet ample catalogue, Qobuz a choisi 10 albums clés. Certains sont des classiques célébrés. D’autres, des merveilles sous-estimées. Mais tous sont des incontournables ayant façonné l’esthétique Blue Note.
