During the 80s, Mike Stern was a five star jazz fusion expert. Knighted by Miles Davis—who took him along between 1981 and 1985—he also worked with Billy Cobham and Jaco Pastorius. The guitarist from Boston unleashed an impressive virtuosity and a rather violent playing that contrasted with the one from his peers. His career was punctuated with highs and lows and several struggles with drugs and alcohol… During the summer of 2016, Stern fell hard while at home and broke his two arms. The nerve endings of his right hand had even been damaged! But after a few passages under the knife, he was able to take his Telecaster back and learn to use it brilliantly again. This aptly named Trip is therefore the disc about a voyage towards resurrection. It’s an album that proves above all that his playing, his signature, his phrases are definitely there, still intact! Helped by a dream cast that notably includes bass players Victor Wooten, Edmond Gilmore and Teymur Phell; drummers Dennis Chambers, Lenny White, Will Calhoun and Dave Weckl; trumpet players Randy Brecker and Wallace Roney; keyboard player Jim Beard and saxophonist Bill Evans, Mike Stern pens an album which rivals those from his golden age, sometimes looking towards the Miles he knew, during the period of The Man With The Horn/Star People. Mostly, Trip shows him in various contexts, able of impressive guitaristic pyrotechnics as well as more introspective and tempered moments. Welcome back! © CM/Qobuz

In your panoramas...
John Coltrane, the Continuous Blow(n)

Just half a century ago, the American saxophonist passed away at only 40 years old, leaving behind many recordings which have revolutionized the history of his instrument, of jazz, and also of the music of the twentieth century.

The Struggles of Nina Simone

Although today she is seen as one of the most original voices in jazz and soul, Nina Simone's life was anything but a smooth and gentle climb to the top. The woman who dreamed of being the first black American classical pianist had to struggle against others, against her own family, and even against herself.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.
