The Tunisian Anouar Brahem is one of the most subtle contemporary oud players. Evolving in the ECM sphere, his discographic adventures therefore unfold on international grounds where music coming from ancestral traditions crosses paths with the contemporary and jazz worlds. The virtuoso, who celebrates his sixtieth birthday with this album, wanted to indulge himself by renewing a dialogue opened two decades ago with the bass player Dave Holland. And the cherry on top: this jazz master came with a former colleague of his Miles Davis period, the drummer Jack DeJohnette. Brahem also wanted to confront his Arabic lute against a high-level pianist and Manfred Eicher, Mister ECM, introduced him to the talented British musician Django Bates. The four men obviously get along well, and it shows in every corner of these nine tracks. Jazz is at the center, but far from being conventional, bound to be blended by mixing the Eastern scholarly grammar and the famous maqams. But most of the time it’s music both pure and without a label much like the virtuosos without borders who play it. © BM/Qobuz

ECM in 10 Albums

“The most beautiful sound next to silence.” That’s been ECM’s motto for the past fifty years. Manfred Eicher, the charismatic founder of the Munich label, seems to live in a parallel universe. And jazz sounds different on planet ECM. It is often thanks to this label that artists such as Keith Jarrett, Charles Lloyd, Jan Garbarek, Chick Corea have recorded their best records. Even more so than with Blue Note or Impulse! Limiting the whole history of this extraordinary label to just 10 records would be mission impossible. So, these 10 albums will tell not “the” story but “a” story of ECM.

The Struggles of Nina Simone

Although today she is seen as one of the most original voices in jazz and soul, Nina Simone's life was anything but a smooth and gentle climb to the top. The woman who dreamed of being the first black American classical pianist had to struggle against others, against her own family, and even against herself.

Lhasa, An Unforgettable Shooting Star

With only three studio albums, one live album and three international tours, “Lhasa” de Sela still made her unique mark on contemporary popular music. “La Llorona”, “The Living Road” and “Lhasa” are all accomplished works in their own right and open the door to a strange yet familiar world, halfway between dream and reality. Full of both light and darkness, these songs are imbued with the genuine feelings of an artist whose heartfelt vocals reach out and pull the listener in, creating an intimate relationship with the audience. Looking back at the life of “Lhasa” de Sela, the makings of a legend are visible like chapters in a novel, complete with all the emotion that comes with a beautiful but heartbreaking storyline.
