Andrew Cyrille, Wadada Leo Smith, Bill Frisell

The trio of Wadada Leo Smith, Andrew Cyrille and Bill Frisell have laid out this sublime set for the ECM label, and if you like music that grounds itself in jazz, blues, West African music and carefully-felt free playing, you’ll enjoy this first-time combination. Drums, trumpet, guitar, and three great musicians playing together: that’s Lebroba.

Steve Reich
The ECM Recordings

Say no more: some of the most classic works of a major contemporary composer on a major contemporary label. This box-set of Steve Reich’s ECM Recordings includes several essential pieces of Reichian minimalism, including Tehillim and Music For 18 Musicians, presented in crucial original recordings from 1978-1982. Plus a hefty booklet of liner notes and an essay.

Tord Gustavsen Trio
The Other Side

Imbibe the vibes baby, because Tord Gustavsen is here. Over on the legendary ECM he returns to his piano trio with co-conspirators Jarle Vespestad and Sigurd Hole. The Other Side is a stately spa retreat, an immensely relaxing collection that draws on both smooth jazz and traditional folk music. RIYL melody.

Jan Garbarek & The Hilliard Ensemble

'Officium' is a collaborative effort between vocal group and early music purveyors the Hilliard Ensemble and virtuoso saxophonist Jan Garbarek. Utilising the anachronistic and uncanny aesthetic of the Hilliard Ensemble, 'Officium' attains a cerebral, devotional sound, as if free jazz could be enjoyed at a sonorous church service. The record was recorded in a monastery in Austria.

Avishai Cohen
Cross My Palm With Silver

Trumpeter Avishai Cohen and his remarkable quartet reveal their second album on the august ECM label. Cross My Palm With Silver is some of the finest contemporary jazz you are likely to find in 2017, with the musicians deftly slipping between Cohen’s compositions and free interplay. CD and LP editions on ECM.

Bill Frisell / Thomas Morgan
Small Town

Bill Frisell and Thomas Morgan present an album of luscious live performances, interweaving their respective electric guitar and double bass around one another with extraordinary sensitivity. Small Town contains interpretations of compositions by Paul Motian, Lee Konitz, and John Barry’s ‘Goldfinger’ theme. Out on ECM.

Jan Garbarek

Reissue of Nowegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek’s Places. Originally released in 1978. High regarded as one of his best, Places is stark and isolated with Garbarek’s sax floating in a distant drone of organ chords, and percussion you barely notice coming into the forefront. Features Bill Connors (guitar), John Taylor (organ, piano), and Jack DeJohnette (drums).

Keith Jarrett
The Survivors’ Suite

Recorded in 1976, The Survivors’ Suite is a classic from Keith Jarrett. Although the record only contains two tracks, Beginning and Conclusion, the overall sound is full bodied and complete. A great combination of experimental noise and sound-art, this record is re-issued by ECM and is available on Vinyl LP.

Avishai Cohen
Into The Silence

Following on from his stunning contribution to Mark Turner’s 2014 Lathe Of Heaven, Israeli trumpeter Avishai Cohen makes his leader debut on ECM with Into The Silence. The album features pianist Yonathan Avishai, drummer Nasheet Waits and bassist Eric Revis - known for his work with the Branford Marsalis Quartet along with Sax from Bill McHenry. The understanding between Cohen and Waits occasionally recalls the relationship between Miles Davis and Tony Williams or Don Cherry and Billy Higgins. The album is dedicated to his late father, David.

Tord Gustavsen, Simin Tander, Jarle Vespestad
What Was Said

Tord Gustavsen, Simin Tander and Jarle Vespestad explore Norwegian hymns on this ECM release; it’s jazz, but not as we know it. As a duo Gustavsen and Vespestad have worked closely together for a long time, refining their complex interplay for piano, drums and subtle electronics. But here they also complicate their relationship by working with Afghan poet Tander. Together they make What Was Said a very personal and moving piece of modern jazz.
