Vocale jazz - Verschenen op 5 januari 2013 | BDMUSIC

Booklet
An exception. A rebel. In short, a jazz singer light years away from the clichés of the jazz world. Nina Simone's art was, above all, an outcry; a glimmer of hope in an America plagued by segregation. Yumiko Hioki's superb comic strip perfectly captures the uniqueness of this great voice (and pianist). Unrivaled charisma is at the heart of the recordings that make up this exciting volume of the BD Music collection. The gems we're treated to here were recorded between 1957 and 1962, mainly for the Colpix label, a period during which Simone began to find a certain artistic freedom that matched her untameable personality. This freedom is most evident on her reinterpretations of blues, jazz and folk standards where she was already singing in a way different to everyone else; the Nina Simone way! © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Volume 6 of the Masterpieces series brings together Billie Holiday’s recordings from between 1935 and 1940, most of them with her trusty pianist Teddy Wilson. At the time, Lady Day who was beginning to gain popularity, was not yet the superstar she would later become but her genius was already starting to show in these moving archives. In standards such as These Foolish Things, Night & Day and Summertime, her unique timbre already carries her inner ills and great maturity. And the way she improvises to convey her emotions is totally revolutionary. A highlight of this album is Strange Fruits, which would later become one of the flagship songs of her repertoire, “strange fruits” symbolizing the bodies of black people hanging from trees in an America plagued by racism and segregation. Utterly moving. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Booklet
In Frank Sinatra's vast career, the Capitol years are a kind of zenith. Between 1953 and 1961, after Columbia but before Reprise, the star recorded the blueprint for the art of the crooner. This volume of the BD Music collection brings together some of Sinatra's most beautiful songs from his albums Songs For Young Lovers, Swing Easy, In the Wee Small Hours and Songs for Swingin' Lovers. These four masterpieces were conceived between 1953 and 1956 with conductor and arranger Nelson Riddle. The complicity between the singer and the musician gave birth to these marvels of languid romanticism. Sinatra's golden voice finds the perfect setting in Riddle's strings. And on In the Wee Small Hours, the greatest concept-album of all time about the break-up of a love affair, the duo surpasses itself without any fault of taste weighing down the works! Jean-Claude Götting's astonishing comic strip retraces this delightful interlude of 20th century American popular music © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Booklet
The 33 tracks of this stunning compilation from the BD Music collection zoom in on the 1949 - 1955 Miles Davis period. On these recordings, the trumpeter, who never stopped innovating jazz throughout his life, rubs shoulders with the masters of be-bop who would gradually steer the genre towards cool bop and later hard bop. Increasingly original (especially from 1954 onwards), the playing of the young Miles, only in his twenties at the time, leans towards a form of progressive purity where each soloist really has their say. This is a musical revolution to be further savoured by reading Jacques Fernandez's elegant comic strip based on texts by experts Christian Bonnet and Claude Carrière.

Booklet
Ella Fitzgerald did not revolutionise vocal jazz but embodied it. With her incredible range, her astounding sense of improvisation and her very own way of taking freedom by the scruff of the neck and making it swing like never before, she went through the 20th century never worrying about the trends or the evolution of jazz, a genre to which she gave so much. Before she became the queen of be-bop she was an orchestral singer, confronting all the instrumentalists with her powerful vocals. As she liked to say, "I just tried to do [with my voice] what I heard the horns in the band doing." Ella Fitzgerald made everything she touched her own, including the Great American Songbook, whose pages were filled by geniuses such as Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, George & Ira Gershwin, Rodgers & Hart, Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer and even Cole Porter and Duke Ellington, two geniuses whose work features in this BD Music compilation. On this record we hear Fitzgerald make 42 tracks her own with her unique phrasing, her scat, her high-pitched scratches and the pure velvet of her vocals. Timeless. Marc Zisman/QobuzThis double CD aims to present the best of the first three albums devoted to these "song books", which come from Duke Ellington (in the company of the duke and his men), Rodgers & Hart, and Cole Porter. There were without doubt some difficult choices to make due to the quality of Ella's interpretation, the richness of the musical material and the efficiency of the orchestrations in these fifty-year-old recordings.

A jazz Christmas, a Blues Christmas. That’s the theme of this two-disc set from the BD Music collection, which comes with a booklet illustrated by artists as original as Igort, Mezzo, Bezian, Jean Charles Baty, Ben Radis, Gérald Fleury, Antonio Lapone, Yannick Corboz and Nicolas Pothier, Michel Conversin, Dupuy-Berberian, Francois Cerminaro, Simon Van Liemt, Alain Poncelet, etc. In English-speaking countries, this holiday has always been a magical time when sleigh bells ring out to accompany the warm voices of Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra, and the year’s Christmas songs play, along with Jingle Bells and other timeless songs like O Holy Night, in the magical shop windows of New York City toy stores. Here, Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus are Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Bessie Smith, Dinah Washington, Louis Armstrong and even Mel Tormé, to name but a few. Their voices give a unique flavor to Christmas standards, one that’s far from cliché or generic versions. These vintage songs haven’t aged a day! © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

When Cabu talked about his musical tastes, he couldn’t resist his desire to shock: “Not the stuff that sounds like pigs having their throats cut,” he said, referring to free jazz, which he hated, but swing, “which makes you want to dance.” After he first heard Cab Calloway’s orchestra in the mid-1950s, jazz took over his heart to the point that he spent the rest of his life frequenting clubs, festivals and concerts, sketchpad in hand, looking for the hottest swing he could find. Hating Johnny, applauding Trénet, this “crazy for jazz” guy, as people like to call him, showed an unquenchable passion to the point that he became an expert in the genre. He devoted several of his works to jazz, wrote the preface to a book celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Caveau de la Huchette club, illustrated several jazz albums and collections, and also became a radio announcer on TSF Jazz along with Laure Albernhe. Even better, his obsession led him to meet the greatest masters of orchestral swing, jazz vocals, Blues, cool jazz and BeBop, and he drew portraits of them that were filled with contagious energy: a hectic Slim and Slam, Django Reinhardt playing in a caravan, Chet Baker blowing his trumpet before a female audience that can’t wait to hear him sing… So many faces that we would recognize in a crowd of a thousand by their expressions, and which now adorn a gorgeous sonic tapestry that Cabu’s friends, Christian Bonnet, Philippe Baudoin, Jean Buzelin, Pierre Carlu, Claude Carrière, Irakli de Dawrichewy, Daniel Nevers, Alain Tercinet and Fabrice Zammarchi, contributed to. Beyond the personal vision that we each get from Cabu’s drawings, this quasi-mainstream fantasy world of jazz offers itself up to our eyes and ears. It opens with the funeral hymn New Orleans Function and finishes on an intense version, by Sylvia Howard and the Black Label Swingtet, of Duke Ellington’s renowned It Don’t Mean a Thing. A must-have!

To mark the 75th birthday of Keith Jarrett, his long-time partner has compiled an album of five tracks available exclusively on Qobuz. This close friend of the American pianist happens to be Manfred Eicher, producer and founder of ECM, Keith Jarrett’s label for almost 50 years. On the 10th of November 1971, Jarrett was alone at his piano and Eicher was behind the console cutting the pianist’s first record with ECM: Facing You. “I don’t even know anymore how many records we have made together”, the German producer told Qobuz some years ago. “But looking at this collection retrospectively, it was quite an amazing achievement. The continuity! Everything down to continuity! This is where you can create new things and develop them.” With dynamic group performances and solo improvisations of great depth, this Sequence by Keith Jarrett curated especially for Qobuz by Manfred Eicher, unveils the extraordinary creativity of the great pianist in a variety of musical contexts. Choosing from such an extensive discography couldn’t have been easy and Keith Jarrett 75 offers tracks in solo, duet, trio and quartet… The record opens with Never Let Me Go recorded in January 1983 with bass player Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette, an extract from Standards, Vol.2. The song represents the beginnings of a great trio which never ceased to reinvent itself, endlessly referring back to the great pages of jazz history… This intense flurry of improvisation is followed by Creation, Part VII, recorded in the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome on the 11th of July 2014, taken from the album Creation; a long string of chords which evoke Jarrett’s ties to the classical repertoire… Next up, a spot of retro on the third title, Personal Mountains, recorded on the 16th of April 1979 in Tokyo with saxophonist Jan Garbarek, bass player Palle Danielsson and drummer Jon Christensen, and taken from the album Sleeper released only in July 2012. The track is packed with lyricism and fury and reminds us of how these Scandinavian sidemen allow the American to develop an original discourse. On No Moon at All recorded in 2007 bass player Charlie Haden and released three years later on the album Jasmine, we are met with a magic and moving reunion after thirty years of separation as they jump at each-other’s throats. The combination of these egos produces an ethereal and sublime interaction…. To finish off this celebration, Manfred Eicher returns to the Jarrett/Peacock/DeJohnette trio with Flying, Part 1, an extract from the album Changes. While it was recorded during the sessions for the albums Standards, Vol.1 and Vol. 2 in January 1983, this recording displays a very Jarrett sense of improvisation and demonstrates his interactions with rhythm sections to which he leaves a large degree of freedom. A magical finale for a musician whose universe seems infinite. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet
With 850,000 volumes, 120,000 old books and a collection of 7,500 newspapers, the Municipal Library of the Archiginnasio of Bologna is a place steeped in history. It was here, in early 2021, that Paolo Fresu decided to celebrate his own history. For his 60th birthday, the Sardinian trumpet player gathered a handful of relatives for an exceptional concert, obviously without an audience. Together with bandoneonist Daniele di Bonaventura, pianist Dino Rubino, double bassist Marco Bardoscia and the Alborada Quartet, he wandered through various rooms in this magnificent library performing pieces in his own style. A colourful and hybrid jazz, European at heart and always strolling around. Without ever being a birthday retrospective with the feel of a funeral, Musica da Lettura shows above all the extent of Fresu's genius: an avid researcher and passer-by, capable of drawing on popular musical traditions from cinema, literature, classical or folk music and, of course, jazz... The repertoire of this album (available exclusively on Qobuz) mixes popular songs and themes speckled with electronic effects, to underline the distance between the history of the venue and the contemporaneity of the sounds. On El Ciego, the European tradition intertwines with Latin America. On Notte a San Stino, an almost new age composition that he performs alone, Fresu interweaves several takes of his instrument. And to further extend the field of possibilities, he draws his inspiration from Strauss' Metamorphoses, which he bathes in a solemnity inherited from Rossini. Chamber music or futuristic, nostalgic or groovy, meditative or dreamy, nothing is missing from this fiesta between friends... But the essence of this magnificent album lies in the organic and human character of the music. Despite the literary references and multiple influences, Paolo Fresu's trumpet remains a simple and beautiful language that speaks to the heart. A language brought alive by the bond he enjoys with his fellow musicians, all in tune with this anniversary that one would dream of endlessly... © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

This time capsule, recorded in 1959 in Rudy Van Gelder's Hackensack, NJ, living room and left undisturbed in the Blue Note vaults until now, contains the essential DNA of the first flowering of hard bop in the late '50s. All the genre hallmarks are present: There are intricate chase-scene originals and clever arrangements (the standard "Close Your Eyes") and brash blues-inflected outbursts that light up the solos. And yet, transcending those individual traits, defining not just the notes but the very spirit of the endeavor, is a quality that doesn't get discussed enough in jazz—precision, as in persnickety dotted i's and crossed t's. At times it's downright startling hearing these five musicians nail the details to the wall. They're hardly "just coolin'" here; they're attentive to the small nuances of tunes that might have been written the morning of the session. You can detect the commitment in the pitch-bending doiiiits and the staccato single-note jabs, in the explosion of a long-cresting press roll and the deliberate, nothing-extra stride of a Blakey-trademarked medium-tempo swing. You can hear it in the way trumpeter Lee Morgan and tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley phrase together, adding grace notes that are almost inaudible but key nonetheless. And you can't miss it in the thrillingly open lanes where the solos happen. Blakey was revered for the communication he cultivated between musicians; using a repertoire of hits and jabs, he pulled his collaborators into rich, sometimes boisterous discussions, a mode of interplay that in many ways defines hard bop. There are plenty of examples on this record, but perhaps the most crystalline comes during Morgan's first few choruses on "Jimerick," a blazing uptempo blues. He begins with a short inversion of the theme, first restating it in a lazy way. Then he articulates more aggressively, as though trying to establish consensus on the tempo. Blakey picks that up, and jabs out an even sharper response from the metal rim of the snare drum. That unleashes some mean Morgan double-time bebop; what began as a single-note bugle call becomes an intricate conversation. Each element of that conversation is notable for its clarity, and each new soloist contributes to it in a different way—check the unhurried, wonderfully lucid way Mobley carves up the opening "Hipsippy Blues." The tune is one of three originals Mobley wrote for the date, and if it's familiar that's because it was included on a monumental live recording captured a few months later—At the Jazz Corner of the World, a fiery and complex document that's become part of the "essential listening" jazz canon. Just Coolin', which is apparently the only other recording of this short lived incarnation of the group, might be a step below that in terms of intensity. But only a step. © Tom Moon/Qobuz
