Deep Rivers was originally born on stage, during the celebrations of the centenary of the arrival of jazz in Europe in 1918. The project eventually became an album, which Paul Lay anchored in a vast and eclectic repertoire of music, starting at the end of the 19th century and running all the way until the 20th century. Ragtime, American Civil War, slaves & plantations, the roaring 20s, from Broadway to Tin Pan Alley, from Scott Joplin to Nina Simone, all these different names and time periods, all these different heritages all come together and intersect on this project, creating a magnificent whole thanks to the talent of the arrangement by the Southern French musician. With the voice of Isabel Sörling and Simon Tailleu on the double bass, Paul Lay resurrects these themes of the past to construct a distinctly contemporary narrative. Along with the piano, the double bass and vocals, he adds according to each track: drums from Donald Kontomanou, trombone from Bastien Ballaz, trumpet from Quentin Ghomari and alto saxophone from Benjamin Dousteyssier. Listening to Deep Rivers is like rifling through a thick, richly illustrated history book. Thick but not dusty, however. A truly original way of presenting music which only goes to confirm Paul Lay’s multifaceted talent. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Blue Note in 10 Albums

The most famous of all jazz labels had it all! Five-star artists, original repertoires, ingenious associate artistic directors, exceptional sound recording, sublime album covers, a variety of genres (Bebop, Hard Bop, Soul Jazz, Modal Jazz, Free Jazz)… The label was launched in 1939 by Francis Wolff and Alfred Lion, two Germans who had fled the Nazi regime, and had everything going for it. Qobuz has picked 10 key albums from its ample catalogue. Some of them are celebrated classics. Others are underrated marvels. But all of them played a vital role in shaping Blue Note as a label.

If we’re not living it right now—and there’s a solid argument that we might be—then when?

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.
