This languid, seductive gem may well be Grant Green's greatest moment on record. Right from the opening bars of the classic title cut, Idle Moments is immediately ingratiating and accessible, featuring some of Green's most stylish straight jazz playing. Whether he's running warm (pianist Duke Pearson's "Idle Moments"), cool (the Modern Jazz Quartet's "Django"), or a bit more up-tempo (Pearson's "Nomad," his own "Jean de Fleur"), Green treats the material with the graceful elegance that was the hallmark of his best hard bop sessions, and that quality achieves its fullest expression here. He's helped by an ensemble that, as a sextet, is slightly larger and fuller-sounding than usual, and there's plenty of room for solo explorations on the four extended pieces. Pearson's touch on the piano is typically warm, while two players best known on Blue Note for their modernist dates mellow out a bit -- the cool shimmer of Bobby Hutcherson's vibes is a marvelously effective addition to the atmosphere, while Joe Henderson plays with a husky, almost Ike Quebec-like breathiness. That cushion of support helps spur Green to some of the loveliest, most intimate performances of his career -- no matter what the tempo, it's as if his guitar is whispering secrets in your ear. It's especially true on the dreamy title track, though: a gorgeous, caressing, near-15-minute excursion that drifts softly along like a warm, starry summer night. Even more than the two-disc set The Complete Quartets With Sonny Clark, Idle Moments is the essential first Green purchase, and some of the finest guitar jazz of the hard bop era. ~ Steve Huey

C'era una volta... 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.

ECM in 10 album

“Il più bel suono dopo il silenzio”. Questo è stato il motto della ECM negli ultimi cinquant’anni. Manfred Eicher, il carismatico fondatore dell’etichetta di Monaco, sembra vivere in un universo parallelo. E il jazz suona diversamente sul pianeta ECM. È spesso grazie a questa etichetta che artisti come Keith Jarrett, Charles Lloyd, Jan Garbarek, Chick Corea hanno registrato i loro dischi migliori. Ancor più che con Blue Note o Impulse!, limitare l’intera storia di questa straordinaria etichetta a soli 10 dischi è una missione impossibile. Quindi, questi 10 album non raccontano “la” storia ma “una” delle possibili storie della ECM.

Miles Davis, le dita nella presa

Nel 1968 Miles Davis si fa sedurre dalla fata elettricità. Stregato dalle rivoluzioni psichedeliche e funky di Jimi Hendrix e Sly Stone, il trombettista compie la sua metamorfosi e, con lui, si compie anche quella del jazz.
