In the early 2000s, Vijay Iyer and Craig Taborn were members of the Note Factory, a specialised nonet led by Roscoe Mitchell. The tandem of pianists is an integral component to the complex improvised music provided by the Art Ensemble of Chicago’s saxophonist. Well aware of their potential, Iyer and Tabron decided to pursue their own venture. Recorded live on March 12th, 2018 at the Budapest Liszt Academy, The Transitory Poems doesn’t simply document their profuse creativity. This concert is also a tribute to four artists who passed away recently. Four personalities connected to the Americans’ career: pianists Cecil Taylor, Muhal Richard Abrams, Geri Allen, as well as painter and sculptor Jack Whitten. For 75 minutes, Vijay Iyer and Craig Taborn go back and forth in complete freedom. Probably unfit for untrained listeners, their avant-garde improvisations display exceptional lightness at all times. The result is dense, but never suffocating or exhausting. A music style of immediacy characterised by unparalleled fluidity. Phrases and exchanges that light up the sky and disappear just a few seconds later, like fireworks. Exhilarating. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Jazz: A Woman's World

Excluding singers, women in jazz haven’t had an easy time making their way to the front of the stage. There are of course the likes of Mary Lou Williams, Jaimie Branch, Geri Allen and Alice Coltrane. But up until recently, female jazz artists have been few and far between in the male-dominated and at times rather sexist genre.

ECM in 10 Albums

“The most beautiful sound next to silence.” That’s been ECM’s motto for the past fifty years. Manfred Eicher, the charismatic founder of the Munich label, seems to live in a parallel universe. And jazz sounds different on planet ECM. It is often thanks to this label that artists such as Keith Jarrett, Charles Lloyd, Jan Garbarek, Chick Corea have recorded their best records. Even more so than with Blue Note or Impulse! Limiting the whole history of this extraordinary label to just 10 records would be mission impossible. So, these 10 albums will tell not “the” story but “a” story of ECM.

Marc Ribot, the anti-guitar hero

For thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.
