    Andando El Tiempo


    Carla Bley: Piano

    Andy Sheppard: Tenor Saxophone, Soprano Saxophone

    Steve Swallow: Bass



    Andando el Tiempo features new music of wide emotional compass by Carla Bley, and underlines her originality and resourcefulness as a jazz composer. "Saints Alive!" sets up animated conversations between the participants with striking statements from Steve Swallow's bass guitar and Andy Sheppard's soprano sax. The stately "Naked Bridges/Diving Brides" draws inspiration from Mendelssohn and the poetry of Paul Haines. And the powerful three part title composition - which addresses the trials and tribulations of recovery from addiction - moves through sorrow to hopefulness and joy. The trio with Sheppard and Swallow has been an ideal vehicle for Carla's writing for more than 20 years and also provides one of the best contexts for her unique piano playing. Like the critically lauded ECM album Trios (2012), Andando el Tiempo was recorded at Lugano's RSI Studio and produced by Manfred Eicher.

    Break Stuff (Awaiting Repress)

    Vijay Iyer's "third and best" (NY Times) trio album is now availabe on vinyl.

    Vijay Iyer: piano
    Stephan Crump: double bass
    Marcus Gilmore: drums


    "Break Stuff" is what happens after formal elements have been addressed. Vijay Iyer calls the break "a span of time in which to act. It's the basis for breakdowns, breakbeats, and break dancing... it can be the moment when everything comes to life." A number of the pieces here are breakdowns of other Iyer constructions. Some are from a suite premiered at New York's Museum of Modern Art, some derive from Open City, a collaboration with novelist Teju Cole and large ensemble. The trio energetically recasts everything it touches. "Hood" is a tribute to Detroit techno pioneer Robert Hood. On "Work", Vijay pays homage to his "number one hero", Thelonious Monk. "Countdown" reconsiders the classic Coltrane tune inside a rhythmic framework inspired by West African music. "Mystery Woman" is driven by compound pulses which owe a debt to South Indian drumming. Fast moving and quick-witted, the group has developed a strong musical identity of its own, with an emphasis on what Iyer calls "co-constructing", exploring all the dynamics of playing together. Yet the three players also get abundant solo space and, in a reflective moment at the album's centre, Iyer plays a moving version of Billy Strayhorn's "Blood Count" alone. Break Stuff, recorded in June 2014 at New York's Avatar Studio and produced by Manfred Eicher, is the third ECM release from Vijay Iyer. It follows the chamber music recording Mutations and the film-and-music project Radhe Radhe: Rites of Holi.

    Streams

    On his second leader album for ECM - following on from the prizewinning Gefion - Danish guitarist Jakob Bro continues to refine his trio project, with its emphases on melody, sound, space, layered textures and interaction. The rapport between Bro and Thomas Morgan (Bro calls him "my musical soul mate") has become something extraordinary, and often guitarist and bassist develop improvisational ideas in parallel. There's a historical aptness, too, in the choice of Joey Baron as the band's new drummer, for Bro first encountered Morgan when the bassist was playing in Baron's band a decade ago On Streams Joey Baron dives into the music's detail with obvious pleasure.


    This recording features five new Bro pieces: "Opal", "Full Moon Europa", "Shell Pink", "Sisimiut" and "Heroines" (heard in both a trio version and a particularly lovely solo version). Completing the album's repertoire is the freely improvised "PM Dream", dedicated to the late Paul Motian. Jakob's approach to melody acknowledges the influence of Motian, and both Bro and Morgan played in the late drummer's ensembles.

    Last Dance

    Keith Jarrett: piano

    Charlie Haden: double bass


    Keith Jarrett and Charlie Haden broaden the scope of their duo project to showcase jazz classics like Thelonious Monk's "Round Midnight" and Bud
    Powell's spritely "Dance Of The Infidels". Love songs, however, are to the fore in this selection, with tender versions of "My Old Flame", "My Ship", "It
    Might As Well Be Spring", "Everything Happens To Me", and "Every Time We Say Goodbye" as well as alternate takes of "Where Can I Go Without You"
    and "Goodbye", every bit as touching as the Jasmine renditions. "When we play together it's like two people singing", said Jarrett of his reunion with
    Haden. The intentions of the song are honored, the shades of meaning in a melody or a lyric explored instrumentally. As Charlie Haden put it, "Keith really
    listens, and I listen. That's the secret. It's about listening."The music of Last Dance was recorded at Keith Jarrett's home studio.

    Rising Grace

    Wolfgang Muthspiel - whom The New Yorker has called "a shining light" among today's jazz guitarists - made his ECM leader debut in 2014 with the trio disc Driftwood, featuring him alongside two longtime colleagues, bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Brian Blade. For his follow-up - Rising Grace - the Austrian guitarist has convened a very special quintet, adding jazz luminary Brad Mehldau on piano and the outstanding young trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire to the subtly virtuosic Grenadier/Blade rhythm section.


    Muthspiel moves between electric guitar and classically tinged acoustic six-string, his playing by turns grooving ("Boogaloo") and enchanting ("Rising Grace"). The lyrical flights of Akinmusire's trumpet and the probing improvisations of Mehldau run through Muthspiel's rich set of compositions like golden threads, the tracks including a warm tribute to a late, great ECM artist, Kenny Wheeler ("Den Wheeler, Den Kenny"). Rising Grace also includes a deeply melodious piece that Mehldau composed especially for the album, "Wolfgang's Waltz."

    What Was Said

    What Was Said brings new colors to Tord Gustavsen's musical palette. His new project introduces the entrancing German-Afghan vocalist Simin Tander, and builds upon the subtle understanding of his long musical association with drummer Jarle Vespestad. The combination of the intimacy of her voice, Gustaven's melodically inventive piano and discreet electronics, and Vespestad's patient, textural touch, has considerable emotional persuasiveness.

    Miroslav Vitous Group

    Between 1979 and 1982, the Miroslav Vitouš Group was the primary outlet for the abundant improvisational skills of leader Vitouš and John Surman. They made three ECM albums: this eponymously-titled disc from 1980 is the middle one. Vitouš and Surman were well-matched in lots of ways, with roots and influences that extended beyond jazz, a love of playing freely, a commitment to using all the sound potential of their respective instruments: Surman singing at the top of the baritone sax's range to match Miroslav's fiddle-like arco flourishes on the double bass. The redoubtable Jon Christensen shared their passion for playing, as did Kenny Kirkland, just 24 at the time of this session, on his way to becoming one of modern jazz's outstanding pianists. Repertoire includes classic Miroslav pieces ("When Face Gets Pale"), collective improvising, and an early sighting of Surman's relentlessly driving "Number Six".

    The Dreamer Is The Dream

    For his third ECM album as a leader, Chris Potter presents a new acoustic quartet that naturally blends melodic rhapsody with rhythmic muscle. The group includes superlative musicians well known to followers of ECM's many recordings from New York over the past decade: keyboardist David Virelles, bassist Joe Martin and drummer Marcus Gilmore, who each shine in addition to the leader on multiple horns. The Dreamer Is the Dream features Potter on tenor saxophone - the instrument that has made him one of the most admired players of his generation - in the striking opener Heart in Hand and such album highlights as Yasodhara, as well as on soprano sax (Memory and Desire) and bass clarinet (the title track).


    Potter is an artist who employs his considerable technique in service of music rather than spectacle, says The New Yorker, and his composing develops in texture and atmosphere with every album. Along with his previous ECM releases, Imaginary Cities and The Sirens, he has appeared on some of the label's most acclaimed discs, including Paul Motian's classic Lost in a Dream and Dave Holland's Grammy Award-winning What Goes Around.


    Musicians:

    Roots In The Sky (Speakers Corner) (Pre-Order)

    If there was ever a group that successfully amalgamated Asian and African music with jazz and classic, then it was surely Oregon. With a wide range of instruments and the musicians' unusually receptive ears for everything here, there and everywhere, Oregon certainly enjoyed the optimal prerequisites. John Towner, Paul McCandless, Glen Moore and in particular Colin Walcott laid the foundations for their music in the musical heaven of their time. Oboe, cor anglais, bass clarinet, six- and twelve-string guitars, piano, flugelhorn, percussion, bass, sitar, tabla - such a versatile range of instruments - lent the nine numbers their, until then, rarely heard sound colouring and mark the transition from the band's more hippy-like, country sound when they recorded for the Vanguard label to their later classic sound when signed to ECM. In this respect, Roots In The Sky is an important contemporary document in the world of music between 1970 and 1980. A rare black disc on which there is much to discover!


    This Speakers Corner LP was remastered using pure analogue components only, from the master tapes through to the cutting head. All royalties and mechanical rights have been paid.


    Musicians:



    • Paul McCandless (clarinet, horn, oboe)

    • Ralph Towner (fluegel horn, guitar, piano, percussion)

    • Collin Walcott (guitar, percussion)

    • Glen Moore (bass)



    Recording: December 1978 at Longview Farms, North Brookfield, MA., and April 1979 at Columbia Recording Studios, New York, by David Greene

    Production: Oregon



    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Travels

    If you've ever desired a Pat Metheny Group greatest hits album, then Travels is for you. Compiled from the group's touring activities in 1982, this double set is a must-have. From the glittering lotus of melody that is "San Lorenzo" to the even more effusive "Phase Dance," the requisite classics are all here. We also get a curtailed, though no less epic, version of "As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls," which here draws out like a long cinematic fade and throws the windows open wide to the band's boggling sonic purview. And one can hardly help but swoon from the dizzying heights reached by this live version of "Are You Going With Me?" Here the studio version seems but a memory on the path to glory, and finds exuberant life in what is perhaps Metheny's best solo on record. An absolute affirmation.


    Yet the album's true value comes in the handful of songs exclusive to it. Through these we encounter softer sides of the PMG, each burnished like a different shade of leather. "The Fields, The Sky" is an outstanding place to start. Vasconcelos's unmistakable berimbau threads a supremely melodious backdrop, while Metheny is at once distant and nearby, winding a slow and organic retrograde around the fiery center within. Vasconcelos is also the voice of "Goodbye," a forlorn piece of sonic stationery across which Metheny inscribes a most heartbreaking letter toward a ripple of an ending. This pairs nicely with the title track, a laid-back photograph of Americana that is like a rocking chair on the back porch: lulling, and affording an unobstructed vista.


    Similar strains await us in "Farmer's Trust," a slow plunge into an ocean of undriven roads gilded by the whispering of baby birds and the rustling of the leaves that hide them, and in the smoothly paved blacktops of the synth-driven "Extradition" and "Song for Bilbao." Each of these creeps along like wispy clouds over badlands, spun by keyboardist Lyle Mays into sunset. But it isn't all drawl, as drummer Dan Gottlieb proves in the invigorating "Straight On Red," throughout which he provides the perfect springboard for the masterful dialogues of Metheny and Mays.


    Travels is what the PMG are all about, and this album shows us the collective at its finest hour. Those hearing the PMG for the first time will want to start with the studio sessions, and especially Offramp, from which Travels was in part drawn. That way, one can appreciate the enthusiasm of the crowds, and get at least a taste of what it must have felt like to be there among them. With a depth and cleanliness of sound that no band can match, the PMG were a force to be reckoned with, but also one so welcoming that reckoning need never have applied. Theirs is a space where nature and nurture shared the same pair of lungs. - Tyran Grillo

    Offramp (Awaiting Repress)

    This 1982 recording by the Pat Metheny Group represented a crossroads for the guitarist, a creative expansion from his original concept in terms of acoustic and electric instrumentation, folksy roots material and modern jazz influences, American and third world sources. Having thus marked out the territory for a decade's worth of experimentation and growth, the Metheny Group cemented its standing on the cutting edge of contemporary jazz with Offramp. Lyle Mays' harmonica-like synth theme, Metheny's soaring, vocalized synth-guitar lead, some rich orchestral touches, and an easygoing blend of backbeat and chord changes made Are You Going with Me? one of Metheny's most enduring arrangements. Still, for every gentle, alluring set piece, such as the tangolike Au Lait or the rural vistas of James, there was a visceral, emotive free-for-all like the title track, where Metheny unleashed wild, wailing synth guitar elisions over a loose, abstract pulse--anticipating the energy of the guitarist's collaboration with free jazz guru Ornette Coleman some four years hence on Song X. --Chip Stern

    Released for his 60th birthday, Blue Maqams offers many reasons to celebrate. It brings the Tunisian oud master
    together with three brilliant improvisers: the "Maqams" of the title refers to the Arabic modal music system, rendered

    Jakob Bro: guitars

    Thomas Morgan: double bass

    Jon Christensen: drums


    Gefion is Danish guitarist Jakob Bro's first ECM album as leader, following recordings for the label as sideman with Paul Motian and Tomasz Stanko. Like the work of those masters Bro's balladeering distils a sense of jazz history in its specific and highly personal atmospheres. The open forms of Bro's compositions leave plenty of space for his companions - drum legend Jon Christensen and creative bassist-of-the-moment Thomas Morgan - to make their statements, interactively and in parallel. And there is space too for the listener's imagination to follow the flow and the delicate melodic tracery of Bro's electric guitar in this thoughtful and poetic album. Gefion was recorded in Oslo's Rainbow Studio in November 2013 and produced by Manfred Eicher.

    Andy Sheppard's quartet extends the musical explorations begun on the 2015 release Surrounded By Sea, an
    album praised by TÉlÉrama for its "poignant serenity." In this new program of compositions by Sheppard (plus the
    title track by Brazilian singer-songwriter Renato Teixeira), the drones and washes of Eivind Aarset's guitar and
    electronics - aided by the generous acoustics of Lugano's Auditorio Stelio Molo RSI - help to establish a climate in
    which improvisation can take place.

    Belonging

    On Keith Jarrett's first recording with his European quartet -- Jan Garbarek (sax), Palle Danielsson (bass), Jon Christensen (drums) -- he stakes out somewhat less abrasive territory than that which his American foursome was exploring at this time. Garbarek sports a neutral, vibratoless tone that occasionally reaches an emotional climax; the rhythm section is supportive and just loose enough. The record operates at its strongest level when Jarrett locks the quartet into his winning gospel mode on 'Long as You Know You're Living Yours and the tense drive of Spiral Dance; the reflective numbers are less compelling. Still, it successfully bucked the powerful electric trends of its time and holds up well today.

    Up And Coming

    Guitarist John Abercrombie - who has recorded as a leader for ECM since 1974 - returns with a second album by this quartet. Similar virtues of lyrical melody and harmonic/rhythmic subtlety are apparent with even more emphasis on the enduring values of song. The album showcases Abercrombie's liquid phrasing and glowing tone, with melodic flow the guiding light.


    Musicians:

    John Abercrombie - Guitar

    Marc Copeland - Piano

    Drew Gress - Double Bass

    Joey Baron - Drums

    New York Days

    New York Days features Italy's highly inventive jazz musicians Enrico Rava and protÉgÉ Stefano Bollani,
    together with three leading American jazzmen: master drummer Paul Motian, bassist Larry Grenadier,
    and, in his ECM debut, saxophonist Mark Turner. A magical European/American collaboration, recorded in the jazz capital of the world.


    The album is both a transatlantic project and a kind of 'homecoming'. Rava found his musical direction
    while living in New York in the late 60s/early 70s. Since then an increasingly 'Italian' lyricism has also
    made itself felt in his playing. Rava's soulful trumpet is strongly contrasted with the lean, analytical playing of Mark Turner. Bollani's playful harmonic imagination shapes bridges between them. Larry Grenadier is "present and focused in "every moment" as Rava says, and Paul Motian is as idiosyncratically creative as ever.


    The Rava/Bollani/Motian trio album of 2004, Tati was a popular and critical success. New York Days,
    take the combination to the next level.

    Yesterdays

    2001 was a vintage year for the Jarrett trio, as three outstanding live albums - "The Out-of-Towners", "Always Let Me Go" and "My Foolish Heart"- have already shown. "Yesterdays", registered at Tokyo's Metropolitan Festival Hall, is a fourth 2001 concert recording, with an all-standards programme and a strong emphasis on bebop, including Charlie Parker's "Scrapple from the Apple", "Shaw'nuff" by Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, and Horace Silver's "Strollin'". There is also an exhilarating splash of ragtime in the shape of "You Took Advantage Of Me", and beautiful ballads including the title track and "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" (both from Jerome Kern's pen). As a bonus: the album concludes with a radiant "Stella by Starlight" captured at a soundcheck: Jarrett, Peacock and DeJohnette playing just for the joy of it...


    Musicians:

    Keith Jarrett - piano

    Gary Peacock - double-bass

    Jack DeJohnette - drums

    Cross My Palm With Silver

    A year after his impressionistic, critically-lauded ECM debut Into The Silence, trumpeter Avishai Cohen's Cross My Palm With Silver introduces a program of new pieces which put the focus on the ensemble, on teamwork, with a quartet of the highest caliber. The adroit, almost telepathic interplay among the musicians allows Avishai Cohen to soar, making it clear why he is one of the most talked-about jazz musicians on the contemporary scene.


    All of these people together are my dream team, says the charismatic trumpeter of fellow players Yonathan Avishai, Barak Mori and Nasheet Waits, who share his sense for daring improvisation and his feeling for structure. I feel we're in a perfect place with the balance. It's open and there's so much room for the improvisation to take the music any place we can. At the same time, the composition is very specific and the vibe is very direct and thought about.


    As with Into The Silence, Cross My Palm With Silver was produced by Manfred Eicher at Studios La Buissonne in the South of France.

    In Movement

    Fifty years ago, as a guest with John Coltrane's group, Jack DeJohnette played with the fathers of Ravi Coltrane
    and Matthew Garrison. But for all the wealth of historical reference, this adventurous trio is a band in movement,
    taking the music forward. Ravi Coltrane and Matt Garrison, in their ECM debuts, both respond magnificently to
    DeJohnette's driving drumming, Ravi with superb solos, Garrison with lean bass lines and imaginative looping
    electronics.
