Moderne jazz - Verschenen op 16 oktober 2020 | Blue Note

Hi-Res
Be it through soul, rap or electronic music, artists are always revisiting Blue Note’s repertoire, and Madlib’s brilliant Shades of Blue (2003) is but one example. It’s now the new British jazz scene’s turn to revisit the musical gems – famous or obscure – from this legendary label launched in 1939 by Francis Wolff and Alfred Lion. The aim of this project named Blue Note Re:imagined is to focus primarily on the label’s high-quality music and key musicians. Some of the most revisited artists are therefore Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Joe Henderson and Bobby Hutcherson, and often their work is covered in a rather daring style. For example, Alfa Mist manages to imbue Eddie Henderson’s Galaxy with a rather sensual groove whilst preserving the avant-garde flair of the original version from 1975. The same goes for the Bristolian Ishmael, whose take on McCoy Tyner’s Search for Peace is truly captivating. As for the two sax stars of the moment, Shabaka Hutchings (Bobby Hutcherson's Prints Tie) and Nubya Garcia (Joe Henderson's A Shade of Jade), they both live up to their reputation for shaking things up.Of course, Blue Note Re:imagined doesn’t forget about the vocals. Poppy Ajudha (Watermelon Man by Hancock), Yazmin Lacey (I'll Never Stop Loving You by Dodo Greene), the Norwegian collective Fieh (Armageddon by Wayne Shorter), trumpet player and singer Emma-Jean Thackray (Speak No Evil / Night Dreamer, also by Shorter) and Jordan Rakei (Wind Parade by Donald Byrd), bring a lightness to the album and showcase real talent. But it’s Jorja Smith who takes first prize by covering the most unusual track on the album, Rose Rouge, the leading single from Frenchman St Germain’s album Tourist (2001), taking lyrics from I want you to get together by Marlena Shaw. All in all, it’s funny that what seems to have influenced these exciting young musicians most on Blue Note Re:imagined is still Herbie Hancock from his Headhunters era, an album that was released by Columbia records, not Blue Note… © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Jazz - Verschenen op 16 oktober 2020 | ECM

Hi-Res Booklet
ECM is, without a doubt, the record label that enjoys blurring the lines between jazz and classical the most. So it’s hardly surprising that we find Anja Lechner and François Couturier on this album. Throughout Lontano they sculpt a sound with delicacy and finesse, using their respective experiences, travels, education and imagination to craft a superb borderless score. The German cellist and French pianist already worked together in 2014, linking East and West by revisiting themes by Gurdjieff, Komitas and Mompou. They also collaborated in the Tarkovsky Quartet and in the Il Pergolese project. Lontano’s repertoire is mainly original aside from a few glimpses of Johann Sebastian Bach, Henri Dutilleux, Giya Kancheli and Anouar Brahem (whose Vague - E la nave va was written with Couturier in 2006). Despite the mountain of references, Lechner and Couturier speak a language that is truly their own. It’s like a small chamber symphony nourished by classical, contemporary, folk and jazz music, as well as cinema and literature. Pure grace. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

South African jazz collective SPAZA is improvisational in the truest sense of the word. Not only is their music derived from organic, interactive improv sessions, but the lineup itself is constantly in flux; half of the musicians on UPRIZE! did not appear on the group's debut from last year. While it may seem odd for such an impermanent group to take on the task of soundtracking a film, it turns out that this unconventional approach yields exceptionally effective results. UPRIZE!, a documentary about the uprising in Soweto that, in 1976, intitated what would be the death knell of apartheid, is rooted in the Black Consciousness Movement of the time, a philosophical tenor that resonates throughout SPAZA's approach to music. Thus, having the collective decide to improvise as footage from the film was projected alongside them gives way to music that is richly evocative and emotionally resonant, but not in the manipulative way that film scores often are. Entwining these improvisations with audio clips from the movie is an inventive approach and the nine tracks here reflect that invention with a surprisingly mellow sound punctuated by moments of tension and catharsis. The structures tend to be a little amorphous, but are still intentional; themes form and grow, only to evolve and dissipate into diaphanous dissonance. Whether the gentle percussion and vocal/piano interplay on "Solomon Tsietsi Khotso" or sparse, dramatic ambience of "We Got a Lot a Work to Do," the music is intensely and completely connected to the blood, trauma, and eventual victory of the South African anti-apartheid movement, but it carries a unique emotional resonance. © Jason Ferguson/Qobuz
