Noel McGhie, a little-known Anglo-Jamaican drummer who is hugely popular with free jazz fans, moved to Paris in the early 70s. A worthy heir to Max Roach and Rashied Ali, McGhie even composed music for the Spaniard Fernando Arrabal and became Steve Lacy’s favourite drummer, another exile in the French capital. Other avant-garde musicians soon called on him: François Tusques, Archie Shepp, Bobby Few, Byard Lancaster, Mal Waldron, Anthony Braxton, Alan Silva and Chico Freeman. In 1971, McGhie even featured on Colette Magny’s album Répression! Surprisingly, his album Trapeze (released in 1975) was more like funk than free jazz. With saxophonist Jorge Joao, trumpeter Itaru Oki, electric pianist Georges-Edouard Nouel and bassist Louis Xavier, he produced a wonderful, groovy, 70’s-style score that way surpassed most American productions of that time. A jazz fusion gem that should be rediscovered immediately! © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

The New British Jazz Scene in 10 Albums

Hard bop, hip hop, free jazz, groove, electro, calypso, experimental or Caribbean: the key players of the new British jazz scene are open to everything. They know their classics like the back of their hands though they certainly don’t hold back from exploring all kinds of genres, making for a wonderfully eclectic sound. Here we look back over ten essential albums.

Blue Note in 10 Albums

The most famous of all jazz labels had it all! Five-star artists, original repertoires, ingenious associate artistic directors, exceptional sound recording, sublime album covers, a variety of genres (Bebop, Hard Bop, Soul Jazz, Modal Jazz, Free Jazz)… The label was launched in 1939 by Francis Wolff and Alfred Lion, two Germans who had fled the Nazi regime, and had everything going for it. Qobuz has picked 10 key albums from its ample catalogue. Some of them are celebrated classics. Others are underrated marvels. But all of them played a vital role in shaping Blue Note as a label.

Frank Zappa, for Better or for Laughs

The more time that goes by since Frank Zappa’s passing on December 4, 1993, the more his absence is cruelly felt in the music world. It's not that we have forgotten him, but we have been searching in vain for someone to fill his boots. Frank Zappa’s genius, both cosmic and comical, has no equivalent today, this is because no one, in almost three decades, has been able to combine such a high level of musical talent with such a brilliant sense of humor. Something Zappa did so well.
