JOHN SURMAN – BREWSTER´S ROOSTER
ECM2046     602527011127

John Surman: baryton a soprán saxofony, John Abercrombie: kytara, Drew Gress: kontrabas, Jack DeJohnette: bicí nástroje

After ECM recordings with organ (“Rain on the Window”), strings (“The Spaces In Between”), brass ensemble (“Free and Equal”), choir (“Proverbs and Songs”), and early music experiments with the Dowland Project (“Romaria”). John Surman offers an album unequivocally jazz in its orientation. Soulful ballads, hard-driving pieces and fiery improvisations are all to be found here, and Surman is in best creative form on baritone and soprano saxophones. Both Surman and guitarist Abercrombie have long musical relationships with powerhouse drummer DeJohnette, and all three are in accord at a high level. A strong showing, too, for bassist Drew Gress in his ECM debut. Music is all by Surman, apart from “Slanted Sky” by old comrade John Warren, and the timeless “Chelsea Bridge” of Billy Strayhorn.



EGBERTO GISMONTI – SAUDACOES
ECM2082/83     602517972803

CD1 - Sertoes Veredas - Camerata Romeu, řídí Zenaida Romeu
CD2 - Duetos de Violoes - Alexandre Gismonti: kytary, Egberto Gismonti: kytary

Egberto Gismonti’s first new ECM recording in 14 years is a double-album that indicates the range of his artistry. Disc one features Gismonti the composer on a 70-minute journey through Brazil: “Sertões Veredas – tribute to miscegenation”. It is a work that takes account of Brazil’s culture and history, landscapes and cityscapes, vividly evoked by Cuba’s all-women orchestra the Camerta Romeu, under the leadership of Zenaida Romeu. Disc two features Gismonti the guitarist in an exciting duo recital with his similarly-gifted son Alexandre, romping through a programme that includes such well-known pieces as “Zig Zag”, “Lundú” and “Dança dos Escravos”.


STEVE KUHN TRIO w JOE LOVANO – MOSTLY COLTRANE
ECM2099     602527011141

Steve Kuhn: klavír, Joe Lovano: tenor saxofon, tarogato, David Finck: kontrabas, Joey Baron: bicí nástroje

A recording that pays tribute to a musician of towering importance – and for Steve Kuhn an album of powerful memories. For two months in 1960, Kuhn, then just 21 years old, was the pianist in John Coltrane’s quartet: an unforgettable experience for a young musician, to embark each night into jazz of such torrential emotional intensity. Half-a-century later, joined by a team of gifted collaborators playing at the top of their form, Kuhn rechannels the energies of the era in an album of astonishing invention and wild beauty. Kuhn and Joe Lovano improvise gloriously together, riding the surging waves of Joey Baron’s polyrhythms, in a programme of tunes written by or strongly associated with Coltrane. Tracks include “Welcome”, “Song of Praise”, “Central Park West”, “Spiritual” and more. Recorded December 2008 at New York’s Avatar Studio.


KURTÁGONALS
ECM New Series 2097     028947632603

László Hortobágyi: syntezátory, počítače, György Kurtág jr.: syntezátory, Miklós Lengyelfi: kontrabas, efekty

György Kurtág Jr., son of the great Hungarian composer, has long been developing his own electronic music. In this unusual project, fellow composer László Hortobágyi integrates Kurtág themes into his own arrangements in a recording that celebrates a long friendship. “This is,” say the group members, “a Hortobágyi album about Kurtág,” as well as “an invitation to discover a new sphere of music”. Drifting ambient washes of synthesized sound, near-subliminal bass, collages of subtle colours and sudden eruptions are but part of the story. An intriguing addition to ECM’s growing catalogue of electronica for discerning listeners.


MARTIN BRUNNER TRIO - BEHIND THE CLOUDS
ARTA, F10176     8595017417627

Martin Brunner: piano, Martin Kapusník: kontrabas, baskytara, Petr Mikeš: bicí nástroje

Trio Martina Brunnera je kapela v klasickém obsazení jazzového tria, věnuje se však interpretaci výhradně vlastních skladeb, ve kterých se snaží reagovat na vývoj v současném jazzu a moderní hudbě vůbec. Trio vzniklo na podzim roku 2007 v Praze na půdě Konzervatoře Jaroslava Ježka a prezentovalo se např. na festivalu Jazz Goes To Town v Hradci Králové v rámci výročí KJJ, v Paříži – na koncertě pořádaným Českým kulturním centrem nebo na jazz festivalech ve Znojmě a ve Vrchlabí. Jejich koncerty je možné navštívit mj. také v pražských jazzklubech Agharta či Reduta.

ARTA, F10177     8595017417726
