As pianist Joachim Kühn mentions in the album’s sleeve notes, he gave sixteen concerts with the great saxophonist Ornette Coleman between 1995 and 2000. “Before each concert, Ornette wrote ten new songs, which we would work out and record in his Harmolodic studio in Harlem for a week. Since he wanted me to supply the chords (sounds) for his melodies, I was directly involved in the composition process. After the concert, these pieces were never played again. Now I am the only one who has all the recordings and the sheet music of the 170 pieces. So now, after about twenty years, I have reassembled and recorded them for solo piano. Apart from Lonely Woman, none of these pieces were ever released by Ornette Coleman.” This fascinating collection helped Kühn author a high-class solo album. At 75 years old, he has added some of the free-jazz diktats to his repertoire and is now armed with a rather broad range of shades. He approaches this aptly titled Melodic Ornette Coleman without disrupting the narrative or melodic weave. And because this is Joachim Kühn, the improvisations are anything but plain. In his most melancholic moments, the German pianist still unveils harrowing facets of his musical personality. Superb! © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Piano/bass/drums trios are like small islands which are deserted in spirit and highly populated in reality. And jazz pianists can’t help but keep coming back to visit! Some even live there all year round. For Yaron Herman, playing as a trio means "freedom with constraints": make something new out of something old, don't simply copy the big names (Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett, Ahmad Jamal...), bend the rules by staying within them and, most importantly, have something to say. The Franco-Israeli jazzman is fully aware of the difficulty and ambiguity of the task. "As a trio, it is not easy to find new things, to make a melody sing, to come up with something moving or illuminating, to place yourself in space, sound and improvisation." Nine years after Follow the White Rabbit, Herman decided to "go back to basics" with this trio album. Songs of the Degrees won’t leave you indifferent. With drummer Ziv Ravitz (who has been by his side on his four previous records) and the Iranian-American double bassist Sam Minaie (Charlie Haden's former student who has worked extensively with Tigran Hamasyan) he has found a rhythmic dream team who understand his compositions perfectly. They are compositions that are reinforced with melodies that you’ll be whistling all day long, the kind that remain imprinted in your brain. What’s more, Yaron Herman displays his flair for the exceptional use of space and silence. It’s in those moments that his playing reaches an organic simplicity that makes Songs of the Degrees one of his most engaging albums yet. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Solo double bass albums are few and far between. Those who have dared to venture into the barren territories are mostly adventurous jazzmen: Barre Phillips, Joëlle Léandre, Malachi Favors, Alan Silva, William Parker, Dave Holland, Michael Formanek, Miroslav Vitous, Ron Carter, Eberhard Weber, Henri Texier, Renaud Garcia-Fons, Jonas Hellborg and so on. The American musician Larry Grenadier has played with famous names such as Paul Motian or Pat Metheny, though most will know him for his work from the 25 years that he spent in Brad Mehldau’s Trio. Recorded at Avatar Studios in New York and produced by Manfred Eicher from ECM, The Gleaners is the result of introspection. "The process for making this record began with a look inward, an excavation into the core elements of who I am as a bass player", writes Grenadier in the cover notes. "It was a search for a center of sound and timbre, for the threads of harmony and rhythm that formulate the crux of a musical identity." He adds that it was originally Eicher’s idea, being a trained bassist himself. "Few people truly know how to treat the double bass sonically in the studio, but Manfred concentrates on bringing out its special qualities. In making The Gleaners, he was important in the editing and the mix, really helping me to shape the album." Larry Grenadier uses several techniques and tunings here to make the record come alive and offers up a vast sound palette. With seven original compositions (including one, Pettiford, which is dedicated to the double bassist Oscar Pettiford, his childhood idol), a cover of Gershwin's My Man's Gone Now and a medley of John Coltrane's Compassion and Paul Motian's The Owl of Cranston, The Gleaners displays a rather wide array of emotions and is beautifully unique. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Last century, in the mid-eighties to be precise, Branford Marsalis and his brother Wynton were at the forefront of a new wave of post-bebop virtuosos. Dressed in Armani suits, their music was hugely successful. Some of the top performers in the jazz world criticised these youngsters for their approach, viewing it as regressive, backward-looking and even conservative. Back then, Wynton was the more orthodox player while Branford was the “cool guy”, largely thanks to Buckshot LeFonque, his 1994 project that mixed jazz, rap and R&B, and his work with DJ Premier from Gang Starr... Since then, this Battle of Hernani has been long forgotten and each of the Marsalis brothers has been left to develop their musical style in peace. Branford has even dared to be... daring! In 2014, for instance, he performed solo in Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, playing compositions by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach and Steve Lacy. Two years later, he collaborated with the singer Kurt Elling on the album Upward Spiral. And here on this record, we find those same artists who supported him in 2016: pianist Joey Calderazzo, bassist Eric Revis and drummer Justin Faulkner. The Secret Between the Shadow and the Soul reveals a 58-year-old musician who’s completely free. An artist who plays for himself and those who accompany him. No matter the style or the mood... Rarely has Branford's playing seemed so inspired, so adventurous, so... beautiful? Throughout the hard bop themes (Snake Hips Waltz by Andrew Hill), the atypical compositions (The Windup by Keith Jarrett) and his own compositions, he releases improvisations that are as breathtaking as they are accurate, with phrases that illustrate his lifelong commitment to music. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Album after album, Emile Parisien refines his self-portrait. He adds some shades. Erases others. And whatever the formation, context or repertoire, the saxophonist maintains his song, his voice and his own immediately identifiable style... Throughout his wide repertoire, the pieces that he has conceived with his quartet (for more than a decade) have always occupied a special place. With pianist Julien Touéry, double bassist Ivan Gélugne and, as a new recruit, drummer Julien Loutelier, Parisien leads this improvisation that touches on the sublime and is ever surprising. With his virtuosity he could have simply stuck to what is conventional. But that word doesn’t resonate with him. Every second of Double Screening explores new territories. He is one of the few saxophonists of his generation to alternate between lyricism and libertarianism in the snap of the finger. Going from laughter to tears is not a paradox in the universe of Emile Parisien's quartet. It is simply its raison d'être. And, in the end, a way to offer a type of jazz that is more organic than cerebral. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz
