Since the tragic death of E.S.T. leader, pianist, and composer Esbjörn Svensson in 2008, we've seen the release of the band's final studio albums in Leucocyte and 301, the E.S.T. Symphony assembled by trio members Dan Berglund and Magnus Öström with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, and more recently, a pair of archival live albums from London and Gothenburg. Amazingly, none of that prepares us for HOME.S., an intimate collection of nine solo piano songs Svensson composed spontaneously and recorded in his home studio just weeks before his death. Eva Svensson, his wife and business partner, heard him composing and recording. As was her custom, she backed up his files on a hard drive; it became part of her personal archive. The files sat unheard for more than ten years. After rediscovering them, she enlisted Åke Linton -- E.S.T.'s sound engineer -- and titled them after letters in the Greek alphabet to celebrate her husband's interest in history and mythology. These nine pieces aren't outtakes or novelties but completely unheard songs that offer us the only complete album of Svensson's solo playing and composing. "Alpha" opens the album with whispered chords. The melody emerges crystalline, circular, and assonant, with just enough drama to captivate and play repeatedly. "Gamma" is a haunted ballad that spreads its architecture across pop, gospel, and folk. Its use of themes associated with Bill Evans and Bobo Stenson are not only clever in articulation, they also bridge three generations of jazz pianists. It is fair to assume that some of these tunes were composed for Svensson's ears only. That said, others seem intended for more extensive treatments by the trio. In particular, the angular, harpsichord-like "Delta," with deft lower-middle register flights and pulsing chord voicings would have been expanded by the rhythm section. Their sense of drama in presentation was almost always tempered by their imaginative timbral palette. "Theta" commences classically; Svensson's approach initially suggests a Bach sonata, but he deconstructs the harmony and stretches time signatures to the breaking point using clever ostinatos and a massive chordal playground. It never abandons the classical motif but does inject it with jazz syncopation. In the gorgeous "Epsilon," Svensson is motivated by classical harmony, but his use of pedals, sense of phrasing, and double-handed chord voicings are cinematic save for his (very) gentle humming amid the tune's flow and directional shifts. Closer "Iota" is so tender and deliberate that it sounds like an improvisation on a nursery rhyme. That said, there are canny juxtapositions of progressions and sharp arpeggios that blur together in the pianist's scalar vocabularies. Ultimately, HOME.S. offers an overflow of Svensson's unclassifiable style. His ever-eclectic approach to composition and improvisation is always original. Though some of these selections are sketches that sought further development, Eva, Linton, and ACT have provided fans with a great gift: hearing Svensson's wildly idiosyncratic, very private composing process at the moment of creation.

Archie Shepp: avanguardia jazzistica e impegno sociale!

Il nuovo Jazz non è che il Jazz di una volta. Non c’è nulla di veramente nuovo in esso, se non un messaggio che prima d’ora non avrebbe potuto essere formulato. E questo messaggio è la verità. Racconta la sofferenza di un popolo. Parla dell’emancipazione, della distruzione dei ghetti, del fascismo.

John Coltrane, il soffio continuo(a)

Proprio mezzo secolo fa, il sassofonista americano scompariva a soli 40 anni, lasciando dietro di sé numerose registrazioni che hanno sconvolto la storia del suo strumento, del jazz e anche della musica del XX secolo.

La Blue Note in 10 album

Alla più famosa di tutte le etichette jazz non mancava niente! Artisti a cinque stelle, repertori originali, ingegnosi direttori artistici associati, registrazioni audio di qualità eccezionale, sublimi copertine per i suoi album, generi eclettici (bebop, hard bop, soul jazz, modal jazz, free jazz)... La Blue Note lanciata nel 1939 da Francis Wolff e Alfred Lion, due tedeschi fuggiti dal regime nazista, avevano tutto a loro disposizione. Da questo ampio catalogo, Qobuz ha selezionato i 10 album chiave. Alcuni di loro sono dei famosi classici. Altri, meraviglie sottovalutate. Ma tutti loro restano dei punti fermi assoluti che hanno plasmato lo stile della Blue Note.
