Grounded in jazz's diverse history and powered by that unquenchable desire to improvise, explore, and discover that is the essence of the genre, the new world of brass-and-rhythm meets effects-and-plug-ins is one of today's most exciting musical vortices. Gifted with a fertile imagination and obvious affinity for the palettes of sound available in the digital world, Los Angeles-based "saxofonist," Sam Gendel crafted a tribute that uses compositions by Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, Miles Davis and others as the basis for electronic adventures he's devised in league with electric bassist Gabe Noel and electronic percussionist Philippe Melanson. With a saxophone that only occasionally sounds like a horn, the experimental results are often startling—which in some ways is the point. While the chords of Miles' "Freddie Freeloader" are instantly recognizable via a synthy pulse, the percussion is random and refuses to fall into a steady rhythm. Opening with a descending smear of sound, the title track, famous for being Ellington's set closer, becomes a wide open canvas over which Gendel plays a long, languid solo. Even Hoagy Carmichael's "Stardust," the most famous of the so-called jazz standards here, is stretched and made utterly new thanks to a haunting, almost human voice-like tone, and a snap-and-pop rhythm track. Although he admits that he'll probably never do another album like this, Gendel says in the liner notes that "It's not a joke, there's no irony. When we play "Stardust," that's me thinking about Lester Young, straight up." Recorded quickly like the bebop albums of old, these electronic jams, captured in dry, ringing sonics, have a psychedelic mindset, fluid sense of space, and respect for creating atmosphere and soundscapes that add appealing fresh energies to classic tunes. The surprising, diverse Satin Doll is one artist's vision of a future not defined by labels, but classified by the imagination of its creators. © Robert Baird/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.
