The title New Bottle Old Wine given to this superb record by Gil Evans, his second album under his name, could not be more apt. Collaborators Fats Waller, Jelly Roll Morton, W.C. Handy, Charlie Parker, Lester Young, Dizzy Gilespie and others create a sound akin to a divine vintage liqueur; the great Canadian composer, arranger, conductor and pianist provides the brand-new bottle. A mature collection, ahead of its time and realized with the help of 5-star soloists headed by the saxophonist Cannonball Adderley.


When this album was released in 1958, Gil Evans was 46 years old and already held a sparkling track record with regard to his active participation in the revolution of Cool Jazz and Modal Jazz. On this album released by the label World Pacific, the nuclear strength of his singular arrangements is even more impressive. The unusual punctuations that he includes on a whim and the refined sequences paralleled with more abundant ones bring a certain chaos to these extremely well-known compositions. The success of New Bottle Old Wine is due also to the caliber of the virtuous collaborators, including legendary sidemen (Art Blakey, Paul Chambers, Philly Joe Jones) and the lesser-known but equally brilliant Bill Barber, Frank Rehak, Johnny Coles, Jerry Sanfinoa and Phil Bodner. The record is an essential marker in the career of Gil Evans as two months after the sessions of New Bottle Old Wine, he arranged with Miles Davis a historic reimagining of Gershwin’s opera, Porgy & Bess… © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Impulse! Orange was the New Black

Along with Blue Note and Verve, Impulse! is without doubt one of the best-known American jazz labels. A house painted orange and black that not only produced John Coltrane, but also some of the most adventurous musicians of the 1960s.

Billie Holiday, the Dark Blues

A soul drenched in blues, a broken heart and a battered body, Billie Holiday is still the ultimate representation of silk-laced suffering. A century after her birth, Lady Day is still undeniably the most iconic singer in the history of jazz music.

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.
