“On stage, Snarky Puppy is amazing! Not so much on record…” The American collective has heard this one quite a few times since breaking onto the jazz scene in the early 2000s. With Immigrance however, Michael League’s band authors a strong, raw and direct album, and without a doubt one of their most refined. And like the title may suggest, it pays tribute to population exchanges and migrations, encapsulating the very essence of Snarky Puppy that draws from the diversity of its members, who originate from all corners of the United States and the world.

“The idea here is that everything is fluid, that everything is always moving and that we’re all in a constant state of migration”, explains League. “Obviously the album’s title is not without political undertones… Like Culcha Vulcha, this record is largely inspired by our travels, and we’re always trying to pass specific ideas through our filter and into our idiom without being disrespectful to the tradition at hand.” As usual with Snarky Puppy, the jazz appellation can be both judicious and irrelevant. The sheer amount of influences brewed here prevents the Texan collective from ever going in circles. Fusion jazz feeds from electro, then moves onto Eastern inspirations before stepping back to a more classical format, then dives head first into a rock volcano on the border with trance music, and finally takes a sudden funky groove turn. The whirlwind is intense, carried by the band’s foolproof instrumental virtuosity. © Max Dembo/Qobuz

Herbie Hancock - Hunt for the Funk

Along with his former employer Miles Davis, pianist Herbie Hancock is the other founding father of jazz-fusion. In 1973, his album "Head Hunters" laid down the Holy Scriptures of the most successful union of jazz improvisation and funk psychedelic trance. Afros and platform boots all around!

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.

Miles Davis in 10 albums

Thirty years after his death, Miles Davis is still one of the most important musicians of his time. The trumpeter's impressive discography perfectly sums up his perpetually questioning, probing attitude; and also shows how his influence reaches out beyond the world of jazz. These ten albums, selected subjectively from a sea of revolutionary works, are testament to that fact.
