MANU KATCHÉ picture
Emmanuel 'Manu' Katche was born in St Maur des Fossés, near Paris, in 1958, though his family roots go back to Africa's Ivory Coast. He studied piano from the age of 5, switching to drums at 14 and studying classical percussion at the Conservatoire National Supérieure de Musique de Paris. He has often said that his drum style is essentially an amalgam of African rhythm concepts and classical drumming, illuminated by the in-the-moment interaction of jazz. “When I play jazz I get called a 'rock drummer'. When I do rock projects, critics write about 'the jazz drummer Manu Katché'. But I'm just being myself, trying to be innovative as the music is played, and I guess that is more of a 'jazz' attitude.”

Music on ECM had been one of Katché's teenage inspirations: “I heard my first ECM album when I was about fifteen, and I remember I was amazed by

Album of the Year 2005!

Surprise! This is not only one of the greatest jazz albums of the first decade of the 21st century, but also one of the most archetypal ECM albums ever made. Yes, it really is that good! But wait, the naysayers insist, it's not over-the-top intense or in-your-face. True, but Manu Katche's Neighbourhood is an exquisite, pristine example of the late-night/winter afternoon chamber jazz that has enthralled ECM listeners for 4-1/2 decades. Thought-provoking? You bet!

Trumpeter Tomasz Stanko is billed first, and he almost steals the whole album. He adds dissonances to songs such as "Lullaby" and "Lovely Walk", a "Milestones"-ish riff to "Take Off and Land", and a mournful line to the haunted impressionism of "February Sun" (a perfect ECM title). But the duets with Jan Garbarek are what really stand out, particularly on "Good Influence". Garbarek and his distinctive tones only appear on 5 tracks, but they are all among the album's best. It's easy to take the excellent pianism of Marcin Wasilewski for granted: this is the perfect medium for his work. Double-bassist Slawomir Kurkiewicz provides the melody line on the trio number "November 99", and drives the uptempo "Number One". As for the "leader", Manu Katche is content not to dominate the proceedings - the closest he comes to a solo is in the center section of "Lovely Walk". Make no mistake, this is not a typical drummer-as-leader album. But listen to his cymbal work and rimshots throughout, even when it sounds like not much is happening - pure magic! Highly recommended!
