This album belongs to a time when jazz record executives slapped broad boasts and proclamations onto their products. These usually celebrated the prowess of the artist (Sonny Rollins' Saxophone Colossus) or the potency of the sounds (the Count Basie Orchestra's Atomic Basie). The Shape of Jazz To Come takes that hype up a notch, promoting alto saxophonist Ornette Coleman as no less than the future of the art.

As prophecy goes, the title is spot on. This record introduced Coleman's daring approach to harmony (which he called "harmelodics"), and showed how it stretched common wisdom about consonance and dissonance, structure and openness, hard swing and tempoless contemplation. Coleman and his three agile musicians—trumpeter Don Cherry, bassist Charlie Haden, drummer Billy Higgins; note the absence of a harmony instrument like piano or guitar—engage in a series of squabbling conversations loosely shaped (and occasionally punctuated) by recurring melodic fragments. The ad-libbed motifs dart around corners rapidly; sometimes they bloom and then disappear immediately, sometimes they hang around and mutate as they're volleyed between instrumentalists.

The most famous of these is "Lonely Woman," a sullen Coleman original that's easily his most ubiquitous tune. Following a deliberative bass opening from Haden, Coleman renders it as a study in hanging questions and unresolved mysteries. Other tunes, including "Focus On Sanity" (Coleman's choice for the album title), summon the frenetic energy and taunting fury that soon came to be associated with free jazz. Indeed, it contains maps to the terrain of the future: Historians generally mark this work, which was enshrined in the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry in 2012, as the foundation of the entire jazz avant garde movement. And though the music quickly sprouted more strident modes of expression, this album's forward-hurtling spirit still delivers on the claim of the title. © Tom Moon/Qobuz

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.

Il quartetto americano di Keith Jarrett

Keith Jarrett passò i primi sette anni della sua intensa carriera a sperimentare a più non posso a capo del quartetto americano che formava insieme a Charlie Haden, Paul Motian e Dewey Redman. Tra il 1971 e il 1976, il pianista dirigerà una specie di laboratorio matto in cui cozzeranno jazz, free puro, world e avanguardia. Una parentesi spontanea che merita di essere riscoperta.
