The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady is one of the greatest achievements in orchestration by any composer in jazz history. Charles Mingus consciously designed the six-part ballet as his magnum opus, and -- implied in his famous inclusion of liner notes by his psychologist -- it's as much an examination of his own tortured psyche as it is a conceptual piece about love and struggle. It veers between so many emotions that it defies easy encapsulation; for that matter, it can be difficult just to assimilate in the first place. Yet the work soon reveals itself as a masterpiece of rich, multi-layered texture and swirling tonal colors, manipulated with a painter's attention to detail. There are a few stylistic reference points -- Ellington, the contemporary avant-garde, several flamenco guitar breaks -- but the totality is quite unlike what came before it. Mingus relies heavily on the timbral contrasts between expressively vocal-like muted brass, a rumbling mass of low voices (including tuba and baritone sax), and achingly lyrical upper woodwinds, highlighted by altoist Charlie Mariano. Within that framework, Mingus plays shifting rhythms, moaning dissonances, and multiple lines off one another in the most complex, interlaced fashion he'd ever attempted. Mingus was sometimes pigeonholed as a firebrand, but the personal exorcism of Black Saint deserves the reputation -- one needn't be able to follow the story line to hear the suffering, mourning, frustration, and caged fury pouring out of the music. The 11-piece group rehearsed the original score during a Village Vanguard engagement, where Mingus allowed the players to mold the music further; in the studio, however, his exacting perfectionism made The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady the first jazz album to rely on overdubbing technology. The result is one of the high-water marks for avant-garde jazz in the '60s and arguably Mingus' most brilliant moment.

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.

Obbiettivo la luna: The Dark Side Of The Moon

The Dark Side of the Moon, album-chiave dei Pink Floyd fu il risultato di un lungo processo creativo iniziato intorno al 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (il brano principale dell'omonimo album) fu, almeno per Nick Mason, il punto di partenza. L'album successivo, Ummagumma (1969), diede a ciascun membro della band l'opportunità di creare un brano solista, anche se avrebbero dovuto unire i loro talenti per fare davvero il jackpot. I Pink Floyd hanno continuato a cercare il disco perfetto con Meddle, un album che ha messo in evidenza le loro abilità in studio, e Atom Heart Mother, prima del tanto atteso nirvana con The Dark Side of the Moon. E la perfezione di quest'opera non è stata intaccata nel tempo.

Kamasi Washington, il sax degli Angeli

Dopo un triplo album che lo ha piazzato in cima alle classifiche, eccolo di ritorno con un doppio! Kamasi Washington intriga e affascina non solo i patiti di jazz… Al fianco di Kendrick Lamar e Snoop Dogg, ma soprattutto a capo del collettivo West Coast Get Down, il carismatico sassofonista di Los Angeles porta una ventata di follia sulla scena jazz contemporanea.
