Melody Gardot entre dans sa 30e année avec l’album qui, sans doute, lui ressemble le plus. Non pas que les brillants essais passés de l’Américaine n’étaient guère en phase avec sa personnalité musicale mais elle affirme qu’avec ce Currency Of Man, elle a enfin écrit, enregistré et travaillé avec l’esprit de Philadelphie, la ville où elle a grandi, là où le groove n’est pas le même qu’ailleurs… C’est une Melody Gardot très soul’n’blues qui s’offre ici. Les cuivres sont de sortie et les influences sont moins monolithiques que sur le sublime mais très rétro My One And Only Thrill ou sur le tout aussi séduisant The Absence et ses influences bossa, tango et fado. La palette de tannins de cette cuvée 2015 surprend de prime abord. Puis le charme agit pour, à l’arrivée, rafler la mise. Comme à son habitude sans jamais trancher entre jazz, soul, blues et pop, la Gardot se faufile entre les styles et chante toujours aussi divinement bien. A noter que cette Deluxe Edition baptisée The Artist’s Cut propose cinq superbes thèmes supplémentaires, notamment un court et bel interlude de piano solo intitulé After The Rain. © MD/Qobuz

Descriptif de l'album

Melody Gardot entre dans sa 30e année avec l’album qui, sans doute, lui ressemble le plus. Non pas que les brillants essais passés de l’Américaine n’étaient guère en phase avec sa personnalité musicale mais elle affirme qu’avec ce Currency Of Man, elle a enfin écrit, enregistré et travaillé avec l’esprit de Philadelphie, la ville où elle a grandi, là où le groove n’est pas le même qu’ailleurs… C’est une Melody Gardot très soul’n’blues qui s’offre ici. Les cuivres sont de sortie et les influences sont moins monolithiques que sur le sublime mais très rétro My One And Only Thrill ou sur le tout aussi séduisant The Absence et ses influences bossa, tango et fado. La palette de tannins de cette cuvée 2015 surprend de prime abord. Puis le charme agit pour, à l’arrivée, rafler la mise. Comme à son habitude sans jamais trancher entre jazz, soul, blues et pop, la Gardot se faufile entre les styles et chante toujours aussi divinement bien. A noter que cette Deluxe Edition baptisée The Artist’s Cut propose cinq superbes thèmes supplémentaires, notamment un court et bel interlude de piano solo intitulé After The Rain. © MD/Qobuz

Impulse! Orange was the new Black

Avec Blue Note et Verve, Impulse! est sans doute le plus célèbre des labels de jazz américains. Une maison peinte en orange et noir qui hébergea bien évidemment John Coltrane mais aussi les musiciens les plus aventureux des sixties et qui fête cette année ses 60 ans.

Objectif Lune : The Dark Side of the Moon

Album phare dans la discographie de Pink Floyd, “The Dark Side of the Moon” est le fruit d’une élaboration relativement lente qui remonte pratiquement à 1968. “A Saucerful of Secrets” (le morceau phare de l’album éponyme) en est, pour Nick Mason, le point de départ. Derrière, “Ummagumma” laissait s’exprimer des personnalités qu’il allait falloir amalgamer pour décrocher la timbale. Pink Floyd poursuivit sa quête du disque idéal avec “Meddle”, sur lequel le groupe accentuait sa maîtrise du travail du studio, et “Atom Heart Mother”, avant d’atteindre le nirvana avec “The Dark Side of the Moon”, dont la perfection ne s’est jamais érodée.

Le jazz nordique en 10 albums

Hiver, grands espaces, nature en majesté… On réduit vite la Scandinavie aux éternels mêmes clichés. Le jazz n’échappe pas à la règle. Pourtant, le Danemark marche sur les brisées de la tradition nord-américaine, la Norvège est attirée par l’expérimentation et la Suède préfère ne pas trancher en s’immisçant entre les deux. Malgré ces différences, on parle invariablement de jazz scandinave comme d’une grande famille. Depuis le début des années 70, les musiciens venus du froid ont imposé une singularité perpétuée par la génération actuelle. Coup de zoom sur cette vraie fausse famille en 10 albums choisis avec subjectivité dans une discographie vaste comme un fjord.
