Hi-Res Booklet
Behind the intriguing name Time Is A Blind Guide hides a collective driven by Thomas Strønen. With Lucus, the drummer and composer from Oslo offers a revised version of this acoustic band, in the reduced form of a quintet showcasing the Japanese pianist Ayumi Tanaka. She talks about her improvisation work as an attempt to create associative links between Japan and Norway, a trend that the Norwegian encourages throughout this record with a rather radiant orchestral writing that highlights a concrete sense of space. As in the first eponymous album of Time Is A Blind Guide released in 2015, you’ll find here deeply moving interventions by string experts, the quintet potentially including within itself both a string trio and a piano trio. By the finesse of his production, Manfred Eichner manages to transcribe every single detail of grain and texture of the band’s sound universe, notably seizing the oneiric halo of its harmonics in the exceptional acoustics of the Auditorio Stelio Molo in Lugano. It’s a sound that is one with this music that owes as much to jazz as it does to improvised music, to folklore and to classical music from the 20th century. Produced by Mr. ECM himself, Lucus gathers together Strønen and Tanaka, Håkon Aase on violin, Lucy Railton on violoncello and Ole Morten Vågan on double bass. © CM/Qobuz

The fluidity, as well as the evidence of Maciej Obara’s saxophone must not significantly hide the depth of his music. With Unloved, the Polish saxophonist pens a ninth album that is at first glance very lyrical but that first and foremost leans on the exchanges with the other musicians from his quartet: the pianist Dominik Wania, the bass player Ole Morten Vågan and the drummer Gard Nilssen. In the Rainbow Studio in Oslo where they shut themselves away in January 2017 with producer Manfred Eicher, the four men have serenely juggled with space and silences. Aside from the eponymous title written by the great Krysztof Komeda for the movie from Janusz Nasfeter bearing the same name, all the themes from this disc are penned by Obara. Themes that the saxophonist describes as being only outlines from which the sound of the quartet expresses itself in complete freedom. “My friends are incredible improvisers. I love their ability to evolve in complete freedom in open spaces and the way in which they sculpt them while giving them the colors I have in mind. It’s a bit like composing in real time.” © CM/Qobuz

Manfred Eicher’s strong personal involvement in the production of every album released under his ECM label is well documented. In Stefano Battaglia’s Pelagos, the Munich guru went as far as rearranging the Milanese pianist’s sessions. Combining piano and prepared piano (sometimes simultaneously!), these recordings of original compositions, spontaneous improvisations and traditional Arabic songs were captured both live in a concert venue and during intimate sessions at the Fazioli Concert Hall in Sacile, Italy, in May 2016. Thus in retrospect Eicher rearranged them to − in his own terms − “inject them with a new fantastic form, based on a completely renewed dramaturgy.” The eclecticism of the material, as well as its sheer weight (over two hours and ten minutes of music!) make this a truly impressive work. And the use of the word “dramaturgy” suits it rather well. Regardless, one journeys through Pelagos in one sitting, sometimes being caught off guard by a few twists and surprises. A feeling owed, no doubt, to the founder of ECM. As for Battaglia, he draws from his wide range of influences (Paul Bley, Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett) to offer us a rather varied style, in perfect osmosis with the play, of which he is both the author and the main character. A great solo piano album. © MD/Qobuz

For a first attempt, it's a masterstroke! Released in 1976, Bright Size Life was Pat Metheny's first record as a leader. Just 21 years old, the American guitarist already showed a real maturity as a virtuosic composer and performer. He joined forces with Jaco Pastorius on bass and Bob Moses on a flexible and dynamic drum kit. These ideal accomplices allowed him to develop what would later become his trademark sound: a fluid and often lyrical style. The wide, open spaces of his native Midwest were reflected in his guitar playing as well as in the track titles (Missouri Uncompromised, Midwestern Nights Dream and Omaha Celebration). A great wisdom emerged from this clear and beautiful album (Jim Hall's influence is evident) which closes with Round Trip/Broadway Blues, an unexpected medley of two pieces by Ornette Coleman, one of Metheny's idols, with whom he would go on to record Song X ten years later. But underneath this calm surface, this young virtuoso wanted to change the world. He explained this in an interview with Just Jazz Guitar in 2001: “Even though Bright Size Life may not sound like it, we were pissed off. That album is a very strong political statement from us on how we felt about what our instruments needed to do to remain relevant in jazz. Listening to it now, with 25 years of perspective, I think our message got across, I believe we did change things. That album was a manifesto of some very specific things that we felt strongly about, in terms of harmony, in terms of interaction, in terms of the sound of the instruments. You have to listen to that album to hear where we were at that time.” © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Fifteen years on from Changing Places, his first album for the label ECM, Tord Gustavsen is once again offering up an album performed with a trio, which seems to be the line-up most in keeping with his jarrettian tendencies. With his trusty drummer Jarle Vespestad and Sigurd Hole on double bass (replacing Harald Johnsen who passed away in 2011), the Oslo pianist mixes original compositions with Norwegian folk standards and even pieces by Bach. He ties together these apparently disparate themes with lyricism, and with a groove that's all his own. What makes The Other Side even more thrilling is the perfect unison between the players. © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz
