Jazz is often the mastery of the art of conversation and at 82, the always spiritual Charles Lloyd can speak in many different languages, on a nearly endless array of musical topics. Skilled at rock, world, mainstream jazz and Manfred Eicher's ECM, Lloyd has found his conversational equals in his group, the Marvels. Based in an elastic rhythm section of drummer Eric Harland and bassist Reuben Rogers, this Lloyd-led colloquy where everyone is a leader and also a follower is completed by the powerhouse electric guitar duo of Bill Frisell and Greg Leisz, both of whom speak in their own highly idiomatic, extremely articulate string patois.

Tone Poem is a beautiful example of Lloyd's always expansive musical vision, what he calls his "elixir." It's jazz with elements of Americana, rock and even country—a classic example of his easy, graceful melding of sounds and styles. Filled with Lloyd originals and covers of tunes by Ornette Coleman, Leonard Cohen and Thelonious Monk, Tone Poem evokes two other seminal spiritual/musical concepts: "soul," not as in soul music exactly but as in the mood, the wisdom and grace that imbues everything here and "groove," as in the Second Line rhythm flavor that energizes Coleman's "Ramblin'" before morphing into a train-like chug over which the guitars talk around each other. Lloyd eventually eases in, adding his voice and some squawky tenor mangling that is a natural fit. Leonard Cohen's ethereal "Anthem," perfectly outlined by Frisell's single note lines given resonance through reverb, are supported by Leisz's legato background on pedal steel before Lloyd enters with his warm, searching tone and innate finesse. This is a bravado performance that shows the Marvels at their very best. As lovely as "Anthem," is, it's topped by a ten-minute cover of Ignacio Jacinto Villa Fernández's "Ay Amor," an enchanting triste melody that speaks of soul and hope and is here carried by elegance from Lloyd and both guitarists; it oozes romance tinged with the heartache inherent in the tune. Lloyd switches to alto flute for a bright, groovy, '60s-influenced performance of his "Dismal Swamp," where an insistent tempo provides a steady background around which Leisz wraps an impressionistic pedal steel solo. Produced by Lloyd and his wife, Dorothy Darr, and recorded by a trio of engineers in Spain and California, the sound here is peerless, capturing the instrumental interplay with detail and artistry. Tone Poem is the work of a creator, who as he says in the liner notes, remains inspired by the "fierceness of exploration." © Robert Baird/Qobuz

Nordic Jazz in 10 Albums

Snowy scenes, big expanses, beautiful nature everywhere… Scandinavia is often described by the same old clichés. Jazz is no exception. We tend to talk about Scandi jazz like it’s one big genre. However, each country has its own distinct style; Denmark’s scene rivals traditional North American jazz, Norway tends to get experimental and Sweden treads the line between the two. Nordic musicians have been adding their own unique touch to the genre since the 70s and the younger generation continue to sculpt its future. Here, we zoom in on Scandinavian jazz in 10 albums, offering a glimpse into a discography that’s as wide as a fjord.

Paolo Fresu in 10 Albums

Paolo Fresu is a stream. Of elegance. Of music. Of textures of sound. Of records. But above all, of meetings. His name appears on more than 300 albums, each more varied than the last. But the Sardinian trumpeter has always remained a craftsman of a lyrical jazz, refined and elegant. Shockingly elegant even! For his 60th birthday, which he will celebrate on February 10, we take a look back at a very subjective selection of ten of his albums...

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.
