    The Survivors' Suite

    The Survivors' Suite, recorded in 1976, is the crowning achievement of Keith Jarrett's "American Quartet" with Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden and Paul Motian, and one of the all-time enduring masterpieces in the ECM catalogue. Melody Maker: "The Survivors' Suite is a brilliantly organized and full-blooded work which provides the perfect setting for all four talents. This is a very complete record. It creates its own universe and explores it thoroughly, leaving the listener awed and satisfied... An unashamedly ardent album, Jarrett's very finest." The Wire: "The labyrinthine composition seems to redefine 'intensity' each time it turns a corner. The drive toward the climax of Side Two is among the most moving in modern music, Dewey Redman absolutely titanic over the surging rhythms."


    Musicians:

    Keith Jarrett (piano)

    Dewey Redman (tenor saxophone, percussion)

    Charlie Haden (double bass)

    Paul Motian (drums, percussion)

    Expectations

    Expectations (1972) is an essential Free Jazz album by the pianist, saxophonist, and composer Keith Jarrett. The album shows that Keith Jarrett was an ambitious, multi-talented threat to be reckoned with.


    Jarrett again turns his early eclecticism loose - from Gospel-tinged Soul-Jazz to atonal Avant-Garde -yet this time he does it with an exuberance and expansiveness that puts his previous solo work in the shade.


    Common Mama, Take Me Back, and Nomads are the most invigorating tracks, containing Latin, Jazz and Electric Jazz-Rock influences.


    In addition to Jarrett, musicians on the recording include Dewey Redman (tenor saxophone), Charlie Haden (bass), Paul Motian (drums), Sam Brown (guitar), and Airto Moreira (percussion). It was produced by George Avakian.

    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.

    My Song

    In addition to his solo piano concerts and the American group Keith Jarrett led that featured tenor saxophonist Dewey Redman, he was also busy in the mid-'70s with his European band, a quartet comprised of Jan Garbarek on tenor and soprano, bassist Palle Danielsson, and drummer Jon Christensen. Due to the popularity of the haunting My Song, this album is the best known of the Jarrett-Garbarek collaborations and it actually is their most rewarding meeting on record. Jarrett contributed all six compositions and the results are relaxed and introspective yet full of inner tension.

    80/81

    Pat Metheny's credibility with the jazz community went way up with the release of this package, a superb two-LP collaboration with a quartet of outstanding jazz musicians that dared to be uncompromising at a time when most artists would have merely continued pursuing their electric commercial successes. From the disbanded Keith Jarrett American quartet came bassist Charlie Haden and tenor Dewey Redman - who alternates with and occasionally plays alongside tenor Michael Brecker - and Jack DeJohnette provides more combustible drumming than Metheny had ever experienced on record before. Yet Metheny's off-kilter wandering on solo electric guitar is a comfortable fit for the post-bop rhythmic crosscurrents of this music. Indeed, Haden and Metheny are in total sympathy, perhaps celebrating their mutual Missouri roots, and Metheny's difficult Pretty Scattered - which he mockingly described as Guitar Revenge! - nearly manages to stump even Redman and Brecker. The first of the Two Folk Songs is a great example of the Metheny folk-jazz fusion, with furious strummed guitar underpinning Brecker's melodic line and excursions on the outside and DeJohnette's spectacular drums. Another remarkable track is Open, a group improvisation that finds DeJohnette shaping the track's direction with a pushing solo and Metheny and the saxes emerging at the end. The two original LPs were organized so that the more distinctive Metheny fusions were on sides one and four and the overt jazz tracks occupied sides two and three.

    Forest Flower (Speakers Corner)

    It was a clever move by George Avakian, producer at Atlantic Records, to record live the Charles Lloyd Quartet during their appearance in Monterey, and to release the LP under the title Forest Flower. Although the hippy flower-power movement tended towards a rather different musical genre at the end of the Sixties, they were blown away by this music. The four artists attracted masses of people and ensured that every seat was taken and all standing room filled at jazz festivals such as Newport, Molde (Norway), Antibes (France) and the Fillmore East and West. The super group also appeared in Monterey, 120 Km south of San Francisco, the centre of the hippy movement, on 18 September 1966.


    On the LP we have the almost 18-minute-long title piece and the standard work East Of The Sun, which were recorded at the festival. The disc is complemented by a Keith Jarrett composition and one by Cecil McBee, both of which were recorded in the studio ten days before the festival.
    Of particular note is the rich interplay, the energy that is palpable throughout, the perfect harmony in each and every change of mood, and the intensity. Even 50 years later, it is quite clear that Charles Lloyd managed to break down the barriers between pop and jazz.


    Charles Lloyd is committed to this objective to this very day! All four musicians are still active, although they no longer appear together as a group. Such a special treat for the ears is offered by this newly mastered disc only

    Musicians:



    • Charles Lloyd (tenor saxophone, flute)
    • Keith Jarrett (piano)
    • Cecil McBee (bass)
    • Jack DeJohnette (drums)



    Recording: September 1966 live at Monterey Jazz Festival by Wally Heider

    Production: George Avakian




    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.

    Facing You

    Facing You is one of the most important recordings in contemporary jazz for several reasons, aside from being beautifully conceived and executed by pianist Keith Jarrett. It is a hallmark recording of solo piano in any discipline, a signature piece in the early ECM label discography, a distinct departure from mainstream jazz, a breakthrough for Jarrett, and a studio prelude for his most famous solo project to follow, The Köln Concert. Often meditative, richly melodic, inventive, and introspective beyond compare, Jarrett expresses his soul in tailored tones that set standards for not only this kind of jazz, but music that would serve him and his fans in good stead onward.


    In this program of all originals, which sound spontaneously improvised with certain pretexts and motifs as springboards, the rhapsodic Ritooria, 4/4 love/spirit song Lalene, and song for family and life My Lady; My Child firmly establish Jarrett's heartfelt and thoughtful approach. Vapallia cements the thematic, seemingly effortless, lighter -- but never tame -- aesthetic. Starbright is an easy-paced two-step tune signifying fully Jarrett's personalized stance. Straddling a more jagged, angular, and free edge, the pianist evokes the influence of Paul Bley during Semblence.


    But it is the opening selection, an extended ten-minute opus titled In Front, that truly showcases Jarrett at his playful best -- a timeless, modal, direct, and bright delight. A remarkable effort that reveals more and more with each listen, this recording has stood the test of time, and is unquestionably a Top Three recording in Keith Jarrett's long and storied career.

    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...

    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.

    Dream Weaver (Pure Pleasure)

    The first studio date of the Charles Lloyd Quartet, with Keith Jarrett, Cecil McBee, and Jack DeJohnette, was recorded and released just a few days before the band took both the European and American festival circuits by storm. First came Europe, which was just getting the disc as the band was tearing up its stages. While the live dates are now the stuff of legend, it's easy to overlook the recordings, but to do so would be a mistake. Dream Weaver is a fully realized project by a band -- a real band -- in which each member has a unique part of the whole to contribute.


    Jarrett's unusual piano style fits musically with Lloyd's lyricism in a way that it shouldn't. Jarrett was even then an iconoclast, playing harmonic figures from the inside out and relying on counterpoint to create new spaces, not fill them in. (Just listen to Autumn Sequence, where his solos and his backing harmonics are equally strident and inventive as Lloyd's Eastern explorations of mood and mode.) And then there's the rhythm section of McBee and DeJohnette, whose modal inventions on the intervals make the Dream Weaver suite an exercise in open time, allowing all players to wander around inside it and take what they want out. The set closes with a group party jam on Sombrero Sam, with Lloyd and Jarrett trading eights on a Cuban variation on a fantasia. There were no records like this one by new groups in 1966.

    Musicians:



    • Charles Lloyd (tenor saxophone, flute)
    • Keith Jarrett (piano)
    • Cecil McBee (bass)
    • Jack DeJohnette (drums)

    Live Evil

    Originally released in 1971, Live-Evil is one of Miles Davis' most extraordinary records. Here, on a double album comprised of both live and studio recordings, the electric sound that Davis first unveiled the year previous emerges as a fully formed and powerful beast. Featuring one of his finest bands, which included John McLaughlin, Keith Jarrett, Gary Bartz, Jack DeJohnette and Brazilian percussionist Airto, Live-Evil is a stunning exploration of the outer limits of jazz, and one of the most influential records of the '70s. Absolutely essential. Reissued on double 180 gram vinyl in a gatefold jacket.

    Arbour Zena

    "I consider this one of my most richly lyrical and consistently inspired works," wrote Keith Jarrett of "Mirrors", the almost half-hour long concluding piece on Arbour Zena. "Jan Garbarek's contribution is irreplaceable and ecstatic." It is easy to agree that Arbour Zena as a whole is one of Jarrett's most exceptional albums. Evocative writing for strings, beautiful playing by Keith and Jan and by Charlie Haden at his most soulful, and a glowing panoramic production make this 1975 recording one of the finest of the early ECMs.

    Somewhere Before

    Somewhere Before is a live album by pianist Keith Jarrett recorded on August 30 & 31, 1968 at Shelly's Manne- Hole in Hollywood, California. It features Charlie Haden on double bass and Paul Motian on drums. The trio covers Bob Dylan's "My Back Pages" in an attractive, semi-funky style. "Pretty Ballad" is exactly what the title implies; Jazz hardly gets more subtle and beautiful than this. "Moving Soon" is a chaotic Free Jazz jam. In "New Rag" we begin to hear the distinctive Jarrett style. As an example of early, unfocused Jarrett, this is simply fascinating material.

    Julia With Blue Jeans On

    Since January 2010, Spencer Krug has used Moonface as a venue for home-recorded instrumental and
    conceptual experimentation, expanding the ideas he developed collaboratively with Wolf Parade, Sunset
    Rubdown, and Frog Eyes. Releases under this moniker have come quickly, each distinct from the other. The
    Dreamland EP and Organ Music Not Vibraphone Like I'd Hoped were conceptual excursions merging
    instrumental and thematic fixations. After moving from Montreal to Helsinki, Krug teamed up with the
    Finnish band Siinai to create a lush rock record-2012's Heartbreaking Bravery-driven by the dark despair
    of a breakup. Staying in Helsinki, Krug set off on yet another creative departure, driven by a rediscovery of
    love and a reconsideration of the Moonface persona he'd created for himself. The quietly stunning Julia with
    Blue Jeans On is the fourth Moonface release, bringing a degree of intimacy and self-reflection unlike
    anything Krug has produced to date.


    There are only two sonic elements on Julia: Spencer Krug's voice and his piano. Richly recorded, they interact
    seamlessly with one another. On the opening track "Barbarian," the piano unfolds with the hypnotic energy
    of Keith Jarrett's Koln Concert, Krug's right hand doubling his vocal melody. On the closing track "Your
    Chariot Awaits," Krug's voice recedes after a minute as the piano swells for an extended showcase with
    modern classical undertones. After nearly a decade, across a number of guises, we are well-acquainted with
    Krug's inimitable town-crier vocals; on Julia, we are introduced to a facet of his musical skill that feels
    conservatory-trained. This is Krug as singer-songwriter, moving beyond star poses to a vision that is at once
    more elegant and comfortable.


    Or, in Krug's own language, on "Barbarian II": "I have chewed through my beautiful narrative." Much of Julia
    is taken with this chewing. "Love the House You're In" opens by masquerading as self-pity, with a statement
    that reads like a press release from someone who's given up. "I regretfully withdraw my offer to try and
    improve myself," Krug gently sings, establishing a self-reflexive foundation upon which he builds the album's
    most universal, humanistic sentiment, and which he delivers via its most soaring melody.


    Purposeful self-evaluation is one tactic for reinvention, but as Krug illustrates on Julia's title track, everyday
    occurrences can prove transformative as well. The sight of a woman, clad in denim, briefly visible at the
    bottom of a staircase, he learns, is capable of "obliterating everything I've ever written down." "Julia" is an ode
    in the classical sense, pivoting around the beauty inherent in the most simple, taken-for-granted sights. Krug
    acknowledges this, opening the song by admitting that "it's a madman's game, making the commonplace
    unreal." What he leaves out in this admission, however, is the key to the countless charms of Julia with Blue
    Jeans On: by expertly playing this ridiculous game, he can erase the madness that spawned it.

    New Jazz Conceptions

    In 1956, Bill Evans was virtually unknown (it would be more than a year before he first gained notice as part of the celebrated Miles Davis Sextet). His initial album attracted little attention back then, but listening with hindsight it is easy to hear in these highly individual trio and solo treatments a clear prophecy of the rich inventiveness that so deeply influenced Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Keith Jarrett and an entire generation of jazz pianists.


    Originally released in 1956.

    Ritual

    Ritual is something of an anomaly in the Keith Jarrett archive. It's a solo album, as many of his best are, only this time it is pianist, conductor, and frequent collaborator Dennis Russell Davies at the keys playing a work penned entirely by Jarrett. The hallmarks of a Jarrett piano recital are all there-the rolling ostinatos, dense arpeggios, and profound doublings-yet are valenced differently under the rubric of "composition." In this context, we get a sense of "once removed-ness" that might not present itself under improvisational circumstances. The piece's modest 32 minutes are divided into two immodest parts. From the opening groundswell we get not only dense pockets of energy, but also nodes of emptiness. Put another way: the music's glorious peaks share the same space as the shadowy valleys at their feet, thereby encompassing a harmonious middle ground. Like a geyser, its eruptions are predictable yet manage to enthrall every time. Despite its claustrophobic beginnings, Part 1 ends in bright solitude, like a room in which the curtain has been slowly opened to welcome the morning sun. Heavier chording marks Part 2, which resolves in a hopeful melancholy, but not before gelling the emotional plasticity of its precursor. This brings us full circle, ending on a solemn intonation of a single note.


    Ritual is far more "regulated" than typical Jarrett fare, spun as it is from the surrogacy of another performer rather than through the alchemy of spontaneous creation (though there is, of course, some of each in the other). The results are captivating in their own way, stoked by every depressed key and lifted pedal. Its shapes are drawn not by what is, but what has been and will be. The present is invisible and lives on only as formless possibility, caught like a blown kiss in the cup of one's hand.


    Recorded June 1977 at Tonstudio Bauer, Ludwigsburg

    Engineer: Martin Wieland

    Produced by Manfred Eicher

    Live Evil

    Live-Evil (1970) by Miles Davis is a double live album which features different settings of Miles Davis' bands.


    One of such recordings is of a 1970 gig at the Cellar Door, which featured a band comprised of Miles, bassist Michael Henderson, drummer Jack DeJohnette, guitarist John McLaughlin, saxophonist Gary Barts, and Keith Jarrett. The group is groovy, fast, and funky.


    The other setting was recorded with Ron Carter, Dave Holland, Chick Corea, and Herbie Hancock among others. This record is complex, but somehow still groovy. Tracs like "Sivad", "Funky Tonk", and "What I say" shows enthusiasm and wonderfully live material.

    Art Blakey!!!!! Jazz Messengers!!!!!

    Art Blakey discovered and championed young talented musicians such as Clifford Brown, Lou Donaldson, Keith Jarrett and Wynton Marsalis to name but a few. But he also delivered the message of hard bop through thousands of performances at festivals right down to the smallest club. Lively, joyous performances, the very highest technical standards and somnambulistic music-making characterize this recording. Right from the very start it is clear that these jazz ambassadors have a new message for us. The hard-beat recordings win in lyricism thanks to the gentle sound of Curtis Fuller's trombone, something that was often missing in the powerful Blue Note sound. Four jazz evergreens give the musicians the time and opportunity to display their soloistic talents. The real climax, however, is to be found in the harmonic layering of the three winds which lend the themes new appeal. The message was broadcasted many times until the death of Art Blakey, but the history of jazz would have been a great deal poorer without these milestone recordings on the Impulse label. Art Blakey certainly knew how to delight his audience with fire, originality, a wealth of ideas and great humor. All these attributes are applicable to the six titles on this album.


    Musicians:

    Lee Morgan (trumpet)

    Curtis Fuller (trombone)

    Wayne Shorter (tenor saxophone)

    Robert H. "Bobby" Timmons (piano)

    Jymie Merritt (bass)
