MAURICIO KAGEL – KANTRIMIUSIK
WW 910150     025091015023

Angela Tunstall: soprano, Susan Bickley: alto, Alan Belk: tenor, Nieuw Ensemble, Ed Spanjaard: conductor

Taken as a whole, the eight movements and seven intermezzi of this pastoral music from many countries make up the kind of programme that is often presented by those ensembles from the entertainment industry that belong to the Folklore Department (Arrangements division). Such evenings feature costumed 'family' groups with lots of children which, convinced that they are giving a genuine picture of a particular local region, express their solidarity exclusively through fake music. It is precisely because of the pseudo-popular character of some movements of »Kantrimiusik«, with their vague, ambiguous folklore, that their presentation should not be similarly ambiguous. The piece deliberately makes no claim to authentic sources. On the contrary, it seeks to further foster apocryphal musical art. The degree of parody and caricature or self-conscious seriousness should already be clearly audible in any accurate musical interpretation.

ERNST REIJSEGER – TELL ME EVERYTHING
WW 910151     025091015122

Ernst Reijseger: cello

In Spring 2008 Ernst Reijseger travels to Tuscany and retreats to the vineyard of Castello di Volpaia, on a hill not far from Greve in Chianti, to record his new album of works for cello. Ernst Reijseger has found a remarkable place that lets him unfold his spirituality in a very special way. The former church of La Commenda di San Eufrosino in Volpaia offers him a refuge where he can form his new sound-image in this particular atmosphere. He lets this wonderful space, this splendid location work on him, consciously incorporating the moods of early morning or the suspense of the night into his playing. The result is melodies of profound beauty, sometimes interrupted by harsh rhythmic strokes and wild sound improvisations.

WW 910154     025091015429

Chris Speed: tenor sax, Hilmar Jensson: guitars, Skúli Sverrisson: basses, Jim Black: drums, laptop

Jim Black's new studio album has the cool answer to the chaos and hecticness of our times. Jim Black and AlaxNoAxis featuring Chris Speed, Hilmar Jensson and Skúli Sverrisson are musicians who grew up with rock and creative pop, but are fully engaged in the jazz fields.

SCHNITTKE: SYMPHONY No.9, RASKATOV: NUNC DIMITTIS
ECM 2025     02894766994(4)

Elena Vassilieva: mezzosoprano, The Hilliard Ensemble,
Dresdner Philharmonie, Dennis Russell Davies

•World première recording of Alfred Schnittke’s posthumous last work
•A must-have for anyone interested in Schnittke’s music and an intriguing document of artistic independence beyond schools and trends
•A crucial addition to the wide spectrum of Post-Soviet composition on ECM
•A triumph of creative powers over physical adversity
•Lively, vital and transparent music of most varied character defying ordinary clichés of “late style”

JARRETT, PEACOCK, DEJOHNETTE – YESTERDAYS
ECM 2060     60251774447(9)

Keith Jarrett: piano; Gary Peacock: double-bass; Jack DeJohnette: drums

Here is the most successful piano trio in the world, playing the repertoire that most delights its audience - music from the Great American Songbook, performed with a flair seldom equalled in the history of jazz.


ENRICO RAVA QUINTET – NEW YORK DAYS
ECM 2064     60251772715(1)

Enrico Rava: trumpet; Mark Turner: tenor saxophone; Stefano Bollani: piano; Larry Grenadier: double-bass; Paul Motian: drums

A magical European/American collaboration, recorded in the jazz capital of the world in February 2008, and produced by Manfred Eicher. 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.


CYMINOLOGY – AS NEY
ECM 2084     60251780149(3)

Cymin Samawatie: vocals; Benedikt Jahnel: piano; Ralf Schwarz: double-bass; Ketan Bhatti: drums, percussion

ECM debut for a young band already making waves internationally. Cyminology proposes a unique intercultural chamber jazz, by turns poetic, sensual, melancholic, dynamic and pulsating. Based in Berlin the band features a singer of Iranian descent, an Indian drummer, a French-born pianist and a German bassist. Leader Cymin Samawatie is not only a charismatic frontwoman but also the author of most of the band’s material. She writes texts in Farsi (Persian) and sets them to her own music, often developed through improvising. As well as her own lyrics, Cymin also sings classic Sufi texts from Rumi and Hafez, masters of Persian poetry, and 20th verse of Iranian proto-feminist Farough Farrokhzãd.
