Entre ses premières années Prestige et ses dernières années Impulse!, John Coltrane a enregistré pour le label Atlantic quatre albums comptant parmi ses plus importants : Giant Steps (1960), Coltrane Jazz (1961), My Favorite Things (1961) et Olé (1961). En 2020, le premier d’entre eux souffle ses 60 bougies en habits de lumière avec une édition Super Deluxe de 35 titres (le disque d’origine n’en comptant que sept, regroupés ici au début). Tout a été évidemment remastérisé et l’ensemble inclut de passionnantes alternative takes, certaines déjà publiées dans des versions précédentes, d’autres inédites.

Dès l’arrivée du saxophoniste sur leur label Atlantic, les frères Ertegun lui donnent carte blanche et pour la première fois, Coltrane peut passer plus de temps qu'à son habitude en studio pour peaufiner ses prises. Autre nouveauté, il est l’unique auteur de toutes les pièces du disque. La complexité de ce qu’il joue ici est fascinante car elle n’entrave jamais son obsession première : la musique et la mélodie. Comme son fils Ravi Coltrane (né en 1965) le dira des années plus tard : « Les gens aiment parler de Giant Steps comme d’un test pour les jeunes souffleurs et la façon dont il innove sur certains titres. Mais c’est l’accessibilité qui ressort avant tout pour moi. L'accessibilité, malgré la difficulté de certaines pièces. Tout ça reste très écoutable et très joyeux. La musique de John est une joie à étudier et à jouer. Et à écouter aussi. »

Publié en février 1960, le disque a été enregistré dans les studios Atlantic de New York lors de quatre séances réparties sur l’année précédente et réunissant autour du saxophoniste le contrebassiste Paul Chambers, le pianiste Tommy Flanagan et le batteur Art Taylor. A peine deux semaines se sont écoulées entre le mythique Kind of Blue de Miles Davis auquel John Coltrane a participé et la première session de Giant Steps. Aussi révolutionnaire l’un que l’autre, ces deux chefs-d’œuvre n’ont pourtant rien à voir. L’éponyme Giant Steps d’ouverture est une course renversante où le saxophoniste casse des codes que ses sidemen continuent plus ou moins à perpétuer en filigrane. Face à de tels tremblements de terre harmoniques, la beauté mélancolique du thème Naima, l’une des plus belles compositions de Coltrane dédiée à sa première femme Juanita Naima Grubbs, prouve l’étendue de la sémantique hard bop du saxophoniste, entre virtuosité stratosphérique et lyrisme. Enfin, sur le court Countdown, ses phrases laissent entrevoir les prémices du free qu’il développera plus tard. Bref, avec un tel titre, tous ces Pas de géant sont ceux que le jazz effectue en cette année 1960. Des pas qui, soixante ans après, continuent à impressionner. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Descriptif de l'album

Entre ses premières années Prestige et ses dernières années Impulse!, John Coltrane a enregistré pour le label Atlantic quatre albums comptant parmi ses plus importants : Giant Steps (1960), Coltrane Jazz (1961), My Favorite Things (1961) et Olé (1961).

Dès l’arrivée du saxophoniste sur leur label Atlantic, les frères Ertegun lui donnent carte blanche et pour la première fois, Coltrane peut passer plus de temps qu'à son habitude en studio pour peaufiner ses prises. Autre nouveauté, il est l’unique auteur de toutes les pièces du disque. La complexité de ce qu’il joue ici est fascinante car elle n’entrave jamais son obsession première : la musique et la mélodie.

Les Grands Angles...
Santana, le lézard de Tijuana

Une place au panthéon du rock assurée dès ses débuts avec sa performance ensorcelante à Woodstock, une dizaine de Grammy Awards sous le bras et des millions de disques écoulés grâce à sa renaissance en star de la latin pop, des featurings plus prestigieux les uns que les autres… Santana fait partie de ces artistes qui ont tout raflé : la reconnaissance du public, de la critique et de ses pairs. Portrait d’un artiste comblé qui enchaîne les mues comme un lézard.

Henry Mancini, stylé

Sophistication, humour, sensibilité… Tels sont les mots qu’on accole souvent à la musique d’Henry Mancini. Depuis sa disparition en 1994, il est toujours considéré comme un compositeur pop majeur et influent. Sans doute parce que, à côté des œuvres satinées et légères qui ont fait sa réputation (“Diamants sur canapé”, “La Panthère rose”…), il a su montrer la complexité de son langage à travers des compositions plus tourmentées.

ECM en 10 albums

Le plus beau son après le silence. C’est la formule qui colle à la peau d’ECM depuis cinquante ans et la sortie du séminal « Free at Last » du Mal Waldron Trio, en novembre 1969. Manfred Eicher, le charismatique fondateur du label munichois, ne vit pas « hors du temps » mais plus précisément dans « un temps parallèle » à celui de la société, faisant d’ECM une planète de toute beauté où le jazz résonne autrement. Et c’est souvent pour ECM que Keith Jarrett, Charles Lloyd, Jan Garbarek, Chick Corea et tant d’autres ont enregistré leurs disques les plus intenses. Plus encore que pour Blue Note ou Impulse!, se limiter à 10 albums pour raconter toute l’histoire de ce label hors-norme est mission impossible. Aussi, les 10 sélectionnés raconteront « une » histoire d’ECM.
