The fourth edition of Return to Forever was a band that emphasized the screaming wah-wah guitar of Al Di Meola and every electric keyboard Chick Corea could get his hands on to play furiously fast runs. Where the initial, airy Flora Purim/Airto/Joe Farrell edition gave way to the second undocumented group featuring Earl Klugh, and the third band with electric guitarist Bill Connors, this RTF was resplendently and unapologetically indulgent, ripping through riffs and charted, rehearsed melodies, and polyrhythms like a circular saw through a thin tree branch. Their immediacy and visceral power is why rock audiences were drawn to them, impressed by their speed-demon vagaries as much as their concern for musicality. Thank goodness No Mystery had more than its share of toned-down acoustic moments, as well as the powerhouse fighter jet stance that most of their fans craved. It's not nearly as balanced as the previous album Where Have I Known You Before?, but expounds on those themes -- inspired by Neville not Harry Potter -- in a more progressive though louder manner. The bold, dancing, and funky "Dayride" in a higher octave and vocal-type keyboard range perfectly identifies the group sound in a scant three-plus minutes. The two-part, 14-minute "Celebration Suite" gives you a larger view of the classical Bartok/Chopin influence of Corea, and the dramatic medieval or regal stance they alchemized with so many keyboard sounds. It's pseudo-funky, Spanish in a 6/8 rhythm, wailing with Di Meola leaping forth in true guitar hero form, with some group-oriented perfunctory subtleties and complex lines. The title track is the jewel, an acoustic romp through fields of flowers with Lenny White on marimba buoyed by a beautiful, lilting, memorable melody and shifting loud and soft dynamics -- a classic in the repertoire and a fan favorite. The tromping beat of "Jungle Waterfall" supersedes Stanley Clarke's lithe lines, while noise keyboards dominate the silly "Sofistifunk." Corea's acoustic piano is featured on the chordal, grandiose solo "Excerpt from the First Movement of Heavy Metal," and in duet with Clarke. the improvised "Interplay" shows a more spontaneous rather than rehearsed side of these brilliant musicians. Over time, No Mystery yields mixed results, where initially they were viscerally driven and ultimately impressive. The next phase of the group, as indicated by this recording, would take them into even more technologically dominated music.

Les Grands Angles...
Paul McCartney en 10 albums solo

Avec 60 disques d’or, Paul McCartney fait partie des compositeurs les plus efficaces de l’histoire de la pop music. A l’occasion de ses 80 ans, dont 60 passés à écrire des tubes en série, Qobuz revient sur ses années post-Beatles et fait le tri parmi sa discographie pléthorique pour en ressortir dix albums essentiels.

Bill Evans en 10 albums

Sans lui, Keith Jarrett, Brad Mehldau et quelques milliers d’autres pianistes de jazz joueraient différemment. Plus de quarante ans après sa mort, l’héritage de Bill Evans n’a pas perdu de son influence. Au contraire. Difficile de faire le tri dans une discographie sans fond où même un enregistrement taxé d’anecdotique reste toujours supérieur à 90 % de la production. En voilà dix, sélectionnés en toute subjectivité…

La nouvelle scène jazz anglaise en 10 albums

Hard bop ou hip-hop, free ou groovy, électro ou calypso, expérimentale ou caribéenne, la scène jazz britannique contemporaine regorge d’aventuriers aux oreilles bien ouvertes. Des musiciens connaissant leurs classiques qu’ils embarquent sur tous les types de terrains possibles et dont voici 10 albums symbolisant l’éclectisme salvateur.
