While it's true that the first chapter in Gato Barbieri's musical life -- at least on records -- had been that of an explorer, from his vanguard outings on ESP with Don Cherry and Dollar Brand to his showcasing the music of his native Latin America on Impulse, Fania, and Flying Dutchman as it intersected with modern jazz, it is the third chapter that concerns this release. Barbieri became deeply interested in commercial music and its possibilities for Latin jazz and the funk and salsa scenes in the early and mid-'70s. Caliente!, recorded with a very large group, was his first step in that direction in 1976 and it was a smash hit. Jazz purists may have decried its slick production and its lack of ensemble improvisation, but the set was generally well received. Ruby, Ruby followed suit in early 1978, and then Tropico popped out only three months later. This set features another large group with no less than three arrangers and a slew of different percussionists and backing vocalists on virtually every track. Carlos Santana makes an appearance on "Latin Lady," one of the best cuts on the set, and the Santana band's percussionist, José Chepitó Areas, is here, as well as Leon "Ndugu" Chancler, Armando Peraza, and funkmaster Bill Summers to name a few. Another beauty is the lushly orchestrated ballad "She Is Michelle," (written for his wife). Production by David Rubison is over the top. There are swells of strings, overdubs galore, and a full-on chorus to add atmosphere on cuts such as the reading of Caetano Veloso's "Odara." The cover of "Where Is the Love" is also a bit indulgent -- even for Gato at this stage, but it was aimed at scoring in the charts, and it did. Throughout, Barbieri's harsh, emotive tone is soaring over the top in virtually every arrangement, and it is that playing that drew listeners to this meld of funk, jazz, Latin, and Afro Cuban rhythms, disco and pop. The final track, a Barbieri reading of Ravel's "Bolero," with Eddie Watkins' bass pumping it along in triple time, has to be heard to be believed -- Barbieri transforms it into a carnival tune that loses none of its drama and pathos.

Les Grands Angles...
Ray Charles, styliste sous influence

Père fondateur de la soul dont la carrière a duré un demi-siècle, Ray Charles ne saurait se résumer à la poignée de tubes que tout le monde connaît. C’est surtout le maître du crossover musical, la variété haut de gamme qui fait du mélange des genres un art, en approche un pour mieux embrasser l’autre. Ray Charles a sécularisé le gospel, enrichi le blues, joué du jazz, chanté de la country et frôlé le rock’n’roll. Retour sur son style unique fondé sur les cinq qui précèdent.

Le rock progressif en 10 albums

Les influences sont insaissisables, toujours en mouvement et reconfigurations. Une même source d’inspiration connaitra des déclinaisons fort différentes selon le prisme et le présent à travers lesquels elle resurgira. Au cours des 40 dernières années le rock progressif a connu le sommet des charts, le sérieux des pupitres ou les honneurs de l’appellation art-rock. Cette esthétique a développé un élargissement de son lexique par la combinaison de codes antérieurs à des enjeux artistiques et culturels sans cesse renouvelés. Si le rock progressif n’est plus nécessairement revendiqué aujourd’hui avec la même ferveur qu’hier, on peut cependant toujours observer son empreinte chez des artistes allant de Tool à Kanye West. Voici dix albums majeurs, dont le rayonnement n’est pas près de faiblir.

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.
