Masterpiece alert! After working together in drummer Billy Hart’s quartet (All Our Reasons in 2012 and One Is The Other in 2014), Mark Turner and Ethan Iverson are collaborating in a duo for the first time, in a way reminiscent of the legendary tandem Warne Marsh/Lennie Tristano. Except that here, The Bad Plus’ saxophonist and former pianist almost turn their collaboration into a moment of chamber jazz. Their back-and-forths throughout this Temporary Kings dive deep in intimacy. Turner, who is undoubtedly one of his generation’s best tenors, blows small, often unexpected phrases in a most unique fashion − far from the Coltranian cannons. Iverson, in a spirit reminiscent of Paul Bley, makes his fingers whisper, delivering thrifty notes and chords. Together, they sometimes moor on the shores of Third Stream, Gunther Schuller’s movement which synthetized European classical music and jazz at the end of the fifties. But most importantly, Mark Turner and Ethan Iverson remain very natural in their improvisations. Even when they may seem a tad brainy. Moreover, they never let go of the thread of their narrations, each more beautiful than the last. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Booklet
For these Helsinki Songs, Trygve Seim has taken on pianist Kristian Randalu, double-bassist Mats Eilertsen and drummer Markku Ounaskari. Together, they have cooked up the Norwegian saxophonist's eighth album for ECM, one which puts the accent on lyricism. From the off, the fluidity of Sol’s Song sets the tone for this warm, contemplative, sincere and melodic record that never falls into complacency. Helsinki Songs provide an ever-increasing feeling of wellbeing. Following in the footsteps of Charles Lloyd, Seim's playing tends towards a musical poetry of rare beauty. This is more proof, were it needed, of the talent of this 47-year old musician, who is still sadly under-appreciated… © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz

Fifteen years on from Changing Places, his first album for the label ECM, Tord Gustavsen is once again offering up an album performed with a trio, which seems to be the line-up most in keeping with his jarrettian tendencies. With his trusty drummer Jarle Vespestad and Sigurd Hole on double bass (replacing Harald Johnsen who passed away in 2011), the Oslo pianist mixes original compositions with Norwegian folk standards and even pieces by Bach. He ties together these apparently disparate themes with lyricism, and with a groove that's all his own. What makes The Other Side even more thrilling is the perfect unison between the players. © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz
