A member of ECM since the early 1980s, Steve Tibbetts is indivisible from the famous sound of the Munich label. And while his musical universe features all of its markers (space, silence, oneirism, ambient), the singularity of his guitar has always remained preserved. Life Of is the American’s ninth album for ECM, and a sort of sequel to his 2010 Natural Cause. With his 12-string Martin acoustic guitar, Tibbetts plays out an almost Zen ceremony featuring exotic and dreamy sounds created with his friend Marc Anderson (over 35 years of collaboration!), percussionist and Hang player, and cellist Michelle Kinney. An original soundtrack in line with his Midwest and more remote locations, such as Bali and Nepal, where he often spends time. Spirituality holds centre stage throughout this album, which is as contemplative as it is deep. A viscerally meditative jazz’n’world album that evades any attempt at categorisation. © Max Dembo/Qobuz

Bill Evans in 10 Albums

Without him, Keith Jarrett, Brad Mehldau and a few thousand other jazz pianists would play differently. More than forty years after his death, the legacy of Bill Evans hasn’t lost any of its influence. On the contrary, it is difficult to sort through his bottomless discography without finding even an incidental recording that doesn’t tower above 90% of the competition. Here are 10 of his albums, subjectively selected…

Tango: Sounds of the Río de la Plata

Rooted in dance and eventually becoming its very own artistic movement, the history of tango is an epic one; and its future truly looks limitless. A musical genre with hybrid origins, it remains one of the most incredible creations to come out of Río de la Plata. “It’s the only thing we don’t ask Europe for its opinion on,” wrote Argentina’s Macedonio Fernández, the man that young Jorge Luis Borges admired “to the point of devout and passionate plagiarism.” A number of coincidences in the late 19th century gave rise to this style of music. As musicologist Carlos Vega said: "no one really tried to create tango." And yet, here it is; complete with its own traditions and innovations, as well as its own golden age, ill-fated artists, myths and rituals.
