Guitarist and Material label head Wolfgang Muthspiel's relatively straight-ahead jazz albums will not have prepared listeners for this challenging but thoroughly enjoyable live duo recording, on which he and his brother Christian play a wide variety of instruments and manipulate a wide variety of electronic sounds and samples to create a shifting soundscape that occasionally verges on jazz but mostly floats somewhere between musique concrète, ambient, and electronica. The album title is pretty apt: While this is by no means a techno album, there are hints of electronic dance music in its textures and use of tape loops and samples. The album's high points include the gorgeous "Voyager -- Transit No. 2" and an equally lovely guitar and trombone duet that stretches out luxuriously over the course of 12 minutes. The only real disappointment is "A-Girls," which starts out mysterious and intriguing but fails to follow up on its promise, and settles into tedium by the end of its seven and a half minutes. Highly recommended overall.

Lee Morgan, Breathless

Lee Morgan’s story is full of highs (in his records) and lows (in his personal life). Born in 1938, he was one of the greatest trumpeters on the Blue Note label. He enjoyed a dazzling career where he walked amongst the giants of jazz, although it was tragically cut short in 1972 by his ex-wife’s gun…

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.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.
