Keith Jarrett – My song



The more I listen to Keith Jarrett – especially when he’s not alone with his piano – the more I like his ballads / slow tunes. The faster paced songs are sometimes cool when they lean into free-jazz (hell, Garbarek is good at this !!!!) but sometimes they’re just piece of easy-listening intellectual jazz for the European audience.

Two interesting "world-jazz" bands, featuring the same drummer (a very nice guy !)

don't know anything about *jazz almost...

"world jazz" ? hu....... I plan to dig into the nu jazz style,to begin softly in the jazzy stuffs by the easy way in... but world jazz ?

I listened to a Garbarek song lately on a webradio, found it nice... then listened to an album with this song, I think it's his last, I'm not sure, maybe "in praise of dreams"... found it overall mostly quite awful... maybe two or three nice songs, but the rest D: ... nu jazz and world music with sometimes celtic melodies : what the hell? I'm not ready for that.

but if anyone have one album (different from this one if possible) to recommend to me, i'll try again.

maybe you should try older stuff, like :

Kind of blue, Miles Davis
Giants steps : John Coltrane
My favorite things, still Coltrane

in current jazz, you can check out EST (swedish trio), Avishai Cohen, Dave Holland quintet or even the Marsalis brothers, Branford and Wynton.

Thanks, I'll check those.

(the thing is i tried some "traditional" "oldschool" (don't remember the names) jazz and didn't like it much ... But I have a nu-jazz V/A compilation I like, thus I've began to look into the nu-jazz style.)

Garbarek can be really boring at times, but he can be brilliant. I love his really early stuff, albums like "Dis", it's almost kinda dark ambient... The trouble with Garbarek is his use of cheesy synths... And Manu Katché.

I supposed a jazz-oriented topic could be interesting, in some ways. I'm not a huge jazz-fiend, but still a jazz lover... Here's the latest album I reviewed :

Michel Portal – Turbulence



In my books, one of the best jazz records ever – even if some would argue this is not completely “jazz” – fuck’em. Michel Portal always stood somewhere between classical, jazz and ethnic music, with a unique sense of improvisation, and an even more unique sound – whatever the instrument he’s playing, clarinet or saxophone. Compared to the new-agey Jan Garbarek, Portal makes no compromises of any kind ; this is not music to wash the dishes by, in any way, this is not “cute” music ; it’s beautiful, like the roaring of the lion can be. Yet, his music is completely listenable by anyone – it’s easy to enter, compared to Coltrane, as an example. Whatever : this is a must-have record, and it would have been a must have with only one track, Mozambic (quite famous in france, at least among the elder, for having been used in the 80’s TV program “droit de réponse”).

Jazz covers of King Crimson classic tracks, featuring and ex-KC drummer. I don't know what to think about it, really. The musical skills of the artists here can't be discussed, and there are some really beautiful parts ; some are quite... daring too... But is that enough for King Crimson songs ? I just felt, at times, like I was listening to a Las Vegas jazz trio playing some kind of muzak... And that's not just right. You probably have to give your own try to make yourself an opinion...

Jan Garbarek – Dansere
Jan Garbarek – Places


Two “old” Garbarek records. From the seventies… If you like his sax tone but if his 80’s and later work makes you cringe or wane run to the hills, you might still try these two, as they have nothing in common with the new-agey-ethnic-cheesy-synth stuff he’s been delivering for ages. Anyway. Back in the seventies, Garbarek was already a magnificent (and reverberated) sax player, to say the least ; in these two records, he’s surrounded by incredible musicians, able to explore strange and beautiful rhythmical and tonal spaces ranging from atonal abstraction to complex melodic “post-free” jazz. But the main quality of the music here is its softness, its fragility, and its sense of beauty… I suppose people who don’t like it would call it “easy-listening free jazz”, and, in a way, that’s what we get : free-form jazz played in a very mellow, impressionist, subtle way. No sax berserking here, no violence bursts, this is “zero-gravity music” ; it can be compared, in many ways, to some of Robert Wyatt’s musical stuff, tense but never heavy, cold but never rigid.

It's quite scary. A stampeded of ghosts rushing through a junkyard of rusted steel with band leaders in big hats atop walls, huffing into fog horns. I think there's a scene in Ghostbusters when all the spirits are being funneled back into the netherworld, and the special effects turn into a cacophony. This performance isn't cheesy. It could have a lot to do with microphone placement, equipment, room acoustics, etc. The recording isn't of terrible fidelity, but it isn't as great as I've heard, either. Definitely worth hearing.

This might be the best record released by a Pink Floyd member outside Pink Floyd ; it’s also a very good Robert Wyatt album (he sings all songs but one) ; and it’s also a very good Carla Bley album (she wrote all the material). Is this jazz, or jazz-rock ? Well, no, I’d say this is rock-jazz, taking the best from both worlds… Every time I listen to this record I discover new layers of listening pleasure. The sax work is stunning (amazing Gary Windo !), the songs are wonderfully “pop” without ever feeling commercial, the arrangements are meticulously written ; there could be some kind of competition between the “rock” side of the crew (Nick Mason, Chris Spedding) and the jazzheads, but no, this just sounds right – perfectly balanced ; like the record balances between nonsensic humour (“can’t get my motor to start”, almost zappaian) and melancholy (this is Robert Wyatt singing after all). Lots of people think of this album as a minor gem, I tend to think it’s an absolutely overlooked masterpiece. Essential.

I recently picked up two Big Bad Voodoo Daddy albums. Everything You Want For Christmas (which contains an awesome cover of Mr. Heatmiser!), and How Big Can You Get a tribute to Cab Calloway.

I tried some Big Bad Voodoo Daddy... The music is really cool but I don't really like the voice. Not that it's bad, I just don't like it.

I'm listening to Dave Brubeck's songs right now, very classic but so cool. I'm gonna try to play some of his stuff with unusual signatures on drums tomorrow, such a good training I guess!
Anyway, Take Five is still being an amazing composition... Woaw.

Cobra is an improvised game piece created by John Zorn for any number of musicians. It's controlled with a set of instruction cards that are held by the conductor, but anyone taking part can call for a specific instruction. On Sunday it was played by a group of musicians from the Noise Upstairs jam night(including me)and conducted by Rodrigo Constanzo, although it can only really be Cobra if John Zorn himself does it.
