ECM e le voci: Theo Bleckmann e Sinikka Langeland

Read "ECM e le voci: Theo Bleckmann e Sinikka Langeland" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Con gli anni, le voci hanno acquistato un carattere sempre più rilevante nel catalogo ECM rispetto ai tempi della sua fondazione, quando l'etichetta bavarese era rivolta alla pubblicazione di musica di carattere prevalentemente jazzistico e quasi esclusivamente strumentale. I primi nomi di cantanti a trovar spazio nel catalogo dell'etichetta sono stati quelli di Norma Winstone, Aina ...

Manu Katche: Touchstone for Manu

Read "Manu Katche: Touchstone for Manu" reviewed by John Kelman

With only four records released as a leader on ECM, it may seem a little early to release a “best of" disc for drummer Manu Katché. But having since moved on to fellow German label ACT for Live in Concert, while Touchstone for Manu is only being released in North America in the summer of 2015, ...

Norma Winstone: Dance Without Answer

If there's a single accomplishment that can be attributed to ECM Records--though there are, of course, many in its 45-year history--it's that it welcomes unusual instrumentation with open arms, affording such collaborations the opportunity to grow, to evolve, and build a new language. From the pan-cultural CODONA Trilogy (2009), which collected the three genre-defying recordings made ...

Elina Duni Quartet: Matane Malit

Read "Matane Malit" reviewed by John Kelman

There was a time when jazz musicians were commonly recruited to play on pop records, because their purview was so broad that they could mold themselves into any context.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
