Due to his being such a talented altoist, arranger and occasional trumpeter for seven decades, it is often forgotten that Benny Carter wrote some worthy songs along the way. "When Lights Are Low" and "Blues in My Heart" are standards while "Only Trust Your Heart," "Key Largo" and the novelty hit "Cow-Cow Boogie" are close. For this unusual set, 14 different singers had opportunities to interpret one or two Carter compositions while joined by a fine quintet consisting of cornetist Warren Vache, pianist Chris Neville, bassist Steve LaSpina, drummer Sherman Ferguson and Carter himself (88 at the time!) on alto. The ambitious program includes five Carter songs that were receiving their world premiere; in addition Carter also wrote or co-wrote the lyrics to nine of the pieces. The singers all show respect for the melody and words with Jon Hendricks being playful on "Cow-Cow Boogie," Joe Williams quite touching on "I Was Wrong" and a weakened Peggy Lee making a memorable cameo on "I See You." The vocalists consistently seem quite inspired by the unique project. There are many short Carter and Warren Vache solos and, even with the emphasis on ballads, there is more variety than one might expect. The well-conceived tribute (which also has fine appearances by Dianne Reeves, Carmen Bradford, Kenny Rankin, Marlena Shaw, Diana Krall, Billy Stritch, Shirley Horn, Bobby Short, Ruth Brown, Weslia Whitfield and Nancy Marano) is easily recommended.~ Scott Yanow

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.

Lee Morgan, souffle court

Des hauts (sur ses disques) et des bas (dans sa vie). Lee Morgan fut le grand trompettiste du label Blue Note. Une carrière fulgurante parmi les géants du jazz, stoppée net par le pistolet de son ex-femme…

Pedro Almodóvar dans le groove

Pedro Almodóvar a toujours accordé une place de choix à la musique dans ses films, que ce soit à travers des morceaux préexistants ou des compositions originales. Il reprend ainsi à son compte cette réplique d’un de ses premiers films : « c'est la musique qui dit la vérité sur la vie ».
