James Carter celebrated 2000 by putting out two vastly different albums at the same time, an amazing concession from a major label for a jazz artist who doesn't sell in Kenny G-like proportions. Chasin' the Gypsy, as you might guess, is an homage to Django Reinhardt, whose music Carter used to dig on Detroit radio when he was a teenager, but Carter doesn't take the predictable reverent path in paying his respects. He rummages through his closet and pulls out a rarely used bass saxophone on three cuts -- the bumpy sounds are often comic yet a comfortable fit for his antic style -- and even tries out an F mezzo sax on the exotically relaxed "Oriental Shuffle." Back on tenor, Carter's slippery playing often doesn't hesitate to approach the outside; he keeps his sense of humor and his individual quirks intact. Most of the tunes are Django's yet the one that comes closest to evoking the frantic Hot Club Quintette drive is Carter's own title track, a madcap chase indeed with Carter on wild soprano sax this time. A nostalgic accordion underpins the tango-like "Nuages" á la Piazzolla; violinist Regina Carter provides the Stephane Grappelli-like foil on a few tracks (she does all right but could be a bit looser); and Jay Berliner and Romero Lubambo occasionally summon the ghost of Django with their respectively steel and nylon-stringed solo and rhythm guitar work. Mostly, this is a delightful departure for Carter, though probably destined to be a one-off excursion.

Marc Ribot, l’anti-guitar hero

Depuis une quarantaine d’années, le nom de Marc Ribot apparaît sur les pochettes d’albums signés Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso et tant d’autres. Et lorsqu’il ne prête pas sa guitare atypique aux plus grands, le New-Yorkais s’amuse, sous son nom, à démonter le rock, le jazz, le funk, la musique cubaine et tout ce qui passe sous ses doigts.

Jazz : 10 chanteuses contemporaines

Billie, Ella, Sarah et Nina ont beau bercer, toujours et encore, les mélomanes, le jazz vocal reste un archipel peuplé de chanteuses fascinantes, prêtes à porter ce lourd héritage pour l’ancrer dans leur époque. Est-ce toujours du jazz ? À moins que ce ne soit le jazz qui ait changé ? Peu importe. Coup de zoom sur dix femmes choisies en toute subjectivité qui ont imposé leur nom et leur voix.

Saxophone : les ténors du ténor

Comment le saxophone, cet instrument inventé par un Belge pour les orchestres militaires est-il devenu l’apanage d’un genre ? Comment les jazzmen ont-ils fait main basse sur l’invention d’Adolphe Sax ? Premier volet d’une série consacrée aux géants de l’instrument, en commençant – à tout seigneur tout honneur – par le ténor et ses nombreux adeptes, de Coleman Hawkins à Wayne Shorter.
