Anders Jormin: Poems For Orchestra

Read "Poems For Orchestra" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

Swedish bassist and composer Anders Jormin has been recording since the mid 1980s, playing with greats such as his countryman Bobo Stenson, American saxophonist Charles Lloyd and Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stanko among others. Since his debut as a leader for ECM in 2001, he has kept close to the label. But the concept on Poems for ...

Bobo Stenson Trio: War Orphans

Read "War Orphans" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Manfred Eicher started ECM Records in 1969. Fifty years later, in 2019, with over 1500 releases to its name, the label continues to offer up compelling and unclassifiable music. And since the catalog is deep, and early-in-the-effort recordings have become harder to find, ECM periodically re-releases some of these gems, tagging them Touchstones.

Early ...

Bobo Stenson: Contra la indecision

Read "Contra la indecision" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Con Bobo Stenson siamo di fronte a uno dei volti caratteristici scaturiti dalla scena musicale del Nord Europa: quello segnato dalla raffinatezza timbrica, dallo scandaglio armonico, dalla ricerca melodica ricca di sfumature e digressioni che per certi versi fa riferimento a Bill Evans, ma ne anestetizza la forza dinamica, la nettezza tagliente, i bagliori di fulmine. ...

Bray Jazz Festival

From the hilltop vantage point the Irish Sea lies veiled under a blanket of thick mist. Greystones, five miles to the right, birthplace of the great Christy Doran, peeks out, seemingly floating above the misty clouds like a Roger ...

Ferenc Snetberger: Titok

Read "Titok" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Dopo il disco dal vivo con cui ha esordito per la ECM, il chitarrista ungherese Ferenc Snetberger ritorna con un nuovo lavoro, questa volta in trio con il contrabbassista Anders Jormin e il batterista Joey Baron. La presenza di una sezione ritmica rende l'elemento jazzistico più marcato che nel precedente lavoro realizzato in solitudine, e fa ...

Alberto Pinton: la nostra parte del puzzle

Read "Alberto Pinton: la nostra parte del puzzle" reviewed by Marco Colonna

Scrivere di Alberto Pinton è una delle occasioni ghiotte che speravo di avere collaborando occasionalmente con la divulgazione “giornalistica" del jazz. Sapendo bene di non essere un tecnico della scrittura, ma un semplice veneratore del linguaggio, mi avvicino all'impresa con le cuffie, chiudendo il mondo fuori per la durata di un disco.

Questa ...

Sigurd Hole: Elvesang

Read "Elvesang" reviewed by John Kelman

Sigurd Hole has already built a strong reputation, in his native Norway, for his work with Eple Trio on albums including The Widening Sphere of Influence (NORCD, 2008), in addition to the trio's collaborations with NORCD label head/saxophonist/goat horn master Karl Seglem on albums like NORSKjazz.no (NORCD, 2012). The double bassist has also collaborated with guitarist ...

Bobo Stenson: Contra la indecision

Read "Contra la indecision" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

With a few exceptions, Swedish pianist Bobo Stenson has spent his long recording career with the prestigious ECM label, dating back to his oddly named Underwear in 1971. That particular album turned out to be more a showcase for bassist Arild Andersen and drummer Jon Christensen than for Stenson, and the pianist did not lead again ...

Bobo Stenson: Contra la indecision

Read "Contra la indecision" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Swedish pianist Bobo Stenson could be considered an anomaly amongst the ECM roster of piano players. His work over the past decades has been more controlled and, not to be taken as an insult or affront to Stenson's earthy lyricism, less challenging than the works of past and current label-mates such as Paul Bley, Marilyn Crispell, ...

Marco Bardoscia

Read "Marco Bardoscia" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

1. Johann Sebastian Bach, Glenn Gould, Goldberg Variations (Sony Classical, 1981).
La musica di Bach è per me di grande ispirazione e in particolare questa opera monumentale interpretata da Gould. A volte mi capita di ascoltarne degli estratti prima dei concerti.

2. Miles Davis, Relaxin' with the Miles Davis Quintet (Prestige,1958).
