Noel McGhie, a little-known Anglo-Jamaican drummer who is hugely popular with free jazz fans, moved to Paris in the early 70s. A worthy heir to Max Roach and Rashied Ali, McGhie even composed music for the Spaniard Fernando Arrabal and became Steve Lacy’s favourite drummer, another exile in the French capital. Other avant-garde musicians soon called on him: François Tusques, Archie Shepp, Bobby Few, Byard Lancaster, Mal Waldron, Anthony Braxton, Alan Silva and Chico Freeman. In 1971, McGhie even featured on Colette Magny’s album Répression! Surprisingly, his album Trapeze (released in 1975) was more like funk than free jazz. With saxophonist Jorge Joao, trumpeter Itaru Oki, electric pianist Georges-Edouard Nouel and bassist Louis Xavier, he produced a wonderful, groovy, 70’s-style score that way surpassed most American productions of that time. A jazz fusion gem that should be rediscovered immediately! © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

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.

ECM in 10 Albums

“The most beautiful sound next to silence.” That’s been ECM’s motto for the past fifty years. Manfred Eicher, the charismatic founder of the Munich label, seems to live in a parallel universe. And jazz sounds different on planet ECM. It is often thanks to this label that artists such as Keith Jarrett, Charles Lloyd, Jan Garbarek, Chick Corea have recorded their best records. Even more so than with Blue Note or Impulse! Limiting the whole history of this extraordinary label to just 10 records would be mission impossible. So, these 10 albums will tell not “the” story but “a” story of ECM.

The Stan Getz Quartet Live at the Village Gate

The story of jazz is sometimes told as a tour of mountaintops, the peak-achievement albums that changed the thinking of everyone else on the scene.
