Manfred Eicher’s strong personal involvement in the production of every album released under his ECM label is well documented. In Stefano Battaglia’s Pelagos, the Munich guru went as far as rearranging the Milanese pianist’s sessions. Combining piano and prepared piano (sometimes simultaneously!), these recordings of original compositions, spontaneous improvisations and traditional Arabic songs were captured both live in a concert venue and during intimate sessions at the Fazioli Concert Hall in Sacile, Italy, in May 2016. Thus in retrospect Eicher rearranged them to − in his own terms − “inject them with a new fantastic form, based on a completely renewed dramaturgy.” The eclecticism of the material, as well as its sheer weight (over two hours and ten minutes of music!) make this a truly impressive work. And the use of the word “dramaturgy” suits it rather well. Regardless, one journeys through Pelagos in one sitting, sometimes being caught off guard by a few twists and surprises. A feeling owed, no doubt, to the founder of ECM. As for Battaglia, he draws from his wide range of influences (Paul Bley, Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett) to offer us a rather varied style, in perfect osmosis with the play, of which he is both the author and the main character. A great solo piano album. © MD/Qobuz

Kamasi Washington, the Sax of Angels

After his major success with a triple album, he went on to repeat this with a double one! Kamasi Washington charms and intrigues well beyond the jazz sphere. Working with Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg, and most importantly as the head of the West Coast Get Down collective, the charismatic saxophonist from Los Angeles brings an incredible wave of excitement to the contemporary jazz scene.

Jazz: A Woman's World

Excluding singers, women in jazz haven’t had an easy time making their way to the front of the stage. There are of course the likes of Mary Lou Williams, Jaimie Branch, Geri Allen and Alice Coltrane. But up until recently, female jazz artists have been few and far between in the male-dominated and at times rather sexist genre.
