Motema Music Proudly Announces The Release of JOE LOCKE'S Most Personal & Emotive Work To Date, LOVE IS A PENDULUM
(Published: March 19, 2015)

Available May 26, 2015

Featuring Joe Locke (compositions, vibes), Robert Rodriguez (piano),
Ricardo Rodriguez (bass), Terreon Gully (co-­producer, drums)
With Special Guests Rosario Giuliani, Donny McCaslin (saxes), Paul Bollenback (guitar), Victor Provost (steel pan) and Theo Bleckmann (voice)


***SEE TOUR DATES BELOW!***

Joe Locke - Love Is A Pendulum Official EPK:
https://www.youtube.com/w...


Joe Locke is a musician's musician, an artist for the ages, a man who has been gracing stages and studios with his immense talent, and uplifting spirit, since he was fifteen. Locke is a man who has gathered no moss as he evolved into a communicator, a conceptualist, a composer, and a modern virtuoso who defies categorization, creating music with small groups to symphony orchestras, and with artists as diverse as Cecil Taylor and The Beastie Boys. Derk Richardson said of Locke in The San Francisco Bay Guardian that, "not only has he mastered an instrument that has catapulted only a handful of players to the forefront of modern jazz - but he has done so in a way that transcends mere technique and establishes him as a unique and adventurous musical voice." With more than thirty acclaimed recordings to his credit, it is no wonder The Times (London, U.K.) proclaimed that, "there seems little doubt that Locke, with his ability to play cool and funky, heady and relaxed, is set to become the pre-eminent vibraphonist in jazz." Joe Locke's new recording, Love Is A Pendulum (available on the Motema Music imprint on May 26, 2015), is just over an hour in length, but has taken a lifetime to make, as it encompasses all of Locke's joys and sorrows, and utilizes all of his slings and arrows.

Love Is A Pendulum is an arresting collection of all original music, the centerpiece of which is a five movement suite, based on a poem by the writer and musician Barbara Sfraga (from her Subway Series work), a multi-dimensional artist who Locke has long admired. Locke explains further, "each verse begins with a metaphor describing love - its properties and tendencies - and how (possibly) to navigate them. As is so often the case in my composing process, the genesis of a musical idea comes from words, whether it be a novel, a poem, or even a simple phrase uttered in a certain way. I feel that Love Is A Pendulum is my best work thus far and I am eternally grateful to Barbara for the inspiration her poem has provided."

This recording is the most personal, most compositional and most emotive work of Locke's career, and it features a hand-picked cast of outstanding musicians that bring Locke's vision to life in spectacular fashion: special guests Rosario Giuliani, Donny McCaslin (saxes), Paul Bollenback (guitar), Victor Provost (steel pan) and Theo Bleckmann (voice), with Locke's core working quartet, featuring Robert Rodriguez (piano), Terreon Gully (drums and co-producer) & Ricardo Rodriguez (basses). Locke commented in the liner notes about the musicians featured on Love Is A Pendulum, "as tightly composed as much of this music is, it would not have risen off the page without the creative contributions of the musicians here. Robert, Terreon and Ricky, the core of this group, have been hugely important to the realization of this project. Working together with a great natural chemistry, they sculpted the shape of each piece into something beyond what I had imagined. Their ability to deal with the written material while at the same time injecting it with soul and spontaneity was (and continues to be) remarkable. I'm also grateful that all of my first choices were available (with a bit of juggling!) to be guests on Love Is A Pendulum."

RED PIANO RECORDS To Release The New Recording From: Pianist/Composer RAN BLAKE & vocalist CHRISTINE CORREA: The Road Keeps Winding

(Published: March 27, 2015)


The second volume in their ongoing tribute to Abbey Lincoln
Available on April 21, 2015


Brooklyn-based Red Piano Records is proud to announce the release of
The Road Keeps Winding from pianist/composer Ran Blake and vocalist Christine Correa. This album represents the second volume in the duo's ongoing, respectful and creative tribute to the late, great Abbey Lincoln. In addition to paying tribute to Lincoln, The Road Keeps Winding is the latest yield from Blake and Correa's remarkable friendship and superlative musical collaboration that has thrived for more than three decades.

Blake and Correa are a united force in paying tribute to Abbey Lincoln. Correa is able to capture the unique timbre of Abbey's voice, yet still retain her own uniqueness. Together, they capture the raw emotion ("Love Lament") and abundant confidence of Abbey's delivery, and the drama of her demonstrative vocalizations (most notable on "The River" and "In The Red"). Blake's pianism on "Throw It Away" (perhaps made even more poignant as Blake plays it solo, sans vocals), which has possibly become Abbey's best-known composition, is sublime, passionate and fierce, much like Abbey Lincoln herself.

Abbey Lincoln holds a special place in the hearts and souls of these artists; a place where her music, her sound and her aesthetic, resonates resoundingly. Blake said, "The fact is that Abbey always spoke the truth, nothing but the truth, openly, unabashedly, honestly, unreservedly, and most importantly, with dignity and conviction. Abbey had raw anger ("Driva Man"/"Triptych"), immortal vision ("Down Here Below" - title track from Blake and Correa's first tribute to Lincoln, Down Here Below, also on Red Piano Records), passionate displays of the great American tragedy ("Retribution" and "In The Red"), and also addressed issues of memories lost and gained ("Throw It Away"). I listened to a lot of Abbey's music when I was a student at Bard College. I particularly liked the album
Abbey is Blue, but was astounded when she and Max Roach brought out the
Freedom Now Suite. Around late October 1960, Roach and his group were hired at The Jazz Gallery. The group which included Julian Priester, Booker Little, and a man who eventually became my teacher, Mal Waldron, performed at the club for five or six weeks. The entire Freedom Suite was performed, as was the entire material from the Straight Ahead album. Although Abbey didn't scat or improvise dramatically, there were nights when her lyrics were more pungent, others when they were more tragic. Often I would leave the club at 3:30 or 4:00 AM to catch the IRT Broadway line back home, trying to recreate in my head much of the material I had heard earlier that evening. The last time Abbey and I met was in February 2006 at Scullers. She came over to the table for a cognac, mentioning she had adopted a dog called Sako and had moved to Riverside Drive and then she publicly thanked me . . ."

Correa elaborated, "my first exposure to Abbey Lincoln was in 1979 through Ran Blake, almost as soon as I arrived in the U.S. I had never before listened to anything as intense as the Freedom Now Suite and Straight Ahead recordings. Abbey's delivery was passionate and expressive and she had a power all her own! Beginning with her association with Max Roach, her style and repertoire changed from a nightclub act ("The Heel"), featuring selections from the Great American Songbook to performing songs with a social context ("Freedom Now Suite", "Mendacity", "Straight Ahead"). Her later meditations on life and humanity showed yet another facet to this remarkable artist. Abbey's powerful voice had a lasting effect on me, and her music has continued to be a source of inspiration. It seems only fitting to record a second tribute album, as she was a presence, a great singer, musician, actress, poet and human being. For me this project with Ran is a dream come true."


More on Ran Blake and Christine Correa:
In a career that now spans five decades, pianist Ran Blake has created a unique niche in improvised music as an artist and educator. With a characteristic mix of spontaneous solos, modern classical tonalities, the great American blues and gospel traditions and themes from classic Film Noir, Blake's singular sound has earned him a dedicated following across the world. In the tradition of two of his idols, Ellington and Monk, Blake has incorporated and synthesized several otherwise divergent styles and influences into a single innovative and cohesive style of his own, ranking him among the geniuses of the genre. Ran Blake is a recipient of the MacArthur "Genius" grant. He was the founder and long-time chairperson of the Third Stream Department (currently called Contemporary Improvisation Department) at New England Conservatory in Boston, MA.

Christine Correa has been involved in a variety of improvisational contexts and is currently teaching in The Louis Armstrong Jazz Performance Program at Columbia University. She has been widely recognized as a leading interpreter of the works of a range of modern American and European poets as set to music by some of today's most innovative jazz composers, such as Frank Carlberg, Nicholas Urie, Sam Sadigursky, and Steve Grover among others. Correa has also recorded and/or performed with artists such as Steve Lacy and John LaPorta and appeared at numerous festivals, concert halls and clubs in the US, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, South America and India. She is currently at the faculty in the jazz department at Columbia University in New York City.

Keith Jarrett celebrates 70 with two new albums among ECM spring releases

Acclaimed pianist Keith Jarrett is set to celebrate his 70th birthday on 8 May with the release of two new albums on his longtime label ECM. The first is a live solo piano album, entitled Creation, which will be released on 11 May, and features highlights from 2014 concert performances in Japan, Canada and Europe. Rather than focusing on a single-evening’s improvisational process, Creation instead comprises of the musical highpoints of concerts in Tokyo, Toronto, Paris and Rome.

This album will be accompanied by the simultaneous release of a newly issued archival classical piano recording, Samuel Barber/Béla Bartók, from 1984 featuring Jarrett, the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Saarbrücken orchestra conducted by Dennis Russell Davies and the New Japan Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Kazuyoshi Akiyama. The latter concert saw Jarrett return alone to the stage of the Kan-I Hoken Hall to play an improvised encore that is also featured on the album, which additionally includes liner notes by Keith Jarrett and Paul Griffiths.


KEITH JARRETT - Creation cover


Another ECM artist marking a significant personal milestone is Jarrett’s longstanding bassist Gary Peacock as he turns 80 on 12 May and also releases a trio album, Now This, the day before. Featuring pianist Marc Copland and drummer Joey Baron, the album was recorded last summer in Oslo and features new versions of Peacock compositions such as ‘Moor’, ‘Vignette’, ‘Requiem’ and ‘Gaya’ alongside new material, plus pieces by Copland and Baron and a version of Scott LaFaro’s ‘Gloria’s Step’.

Heading up this strong tranche of releases is a new album from influential New York saxophonist Tim Berne and his acclaimed ‘chamber jazz’ band Snakeoil, with You’ve Been Watching Me, released on 27 April. The core line-up of clarinettist Oscar Noriega, pianist Matt Mitchell and drummer Ches Smith are joined by new member, electric/acoustic guitarist Ray Ferreira, who adds atmospheric sounds and spiky interjections.

Unreleased Duke Ellington Session from 1970 Out in July

German recording was produced by Conny Plank

By JazzTimes

Grönland Records will release the previously unissued Duke Ellington & His Orchestra’s The Conny Plank Session on July 10. Plank was a German producer and sound engineer mostly known for his work with Kraftwerk, Eurythmics, Ultravox and other rock-related acts. According to a press release, “Myths abound about Ellington and Plank working together at Rhenus Studio in Cologne sometime in 1970. However, with each tale, the crux of the story is the same—Ellington listened to the takes and praised Plank’s work. Plank admired Ellington and received recognition from the right person at the right time.”

A sample track, “Afrique (Take 3, Vocal),” can be streamed here.

Columbia/Legacy to Release Miles Davis at Newport Box Set

4-CD set will span performances from 1955-75

By JazzTimes



Columbia/Legacy will release Miles Davis at Newport 1955-1975: The Bootleg Series Vol. 4 on July 17. The four-CD box set comprises live performances from the Newport Jazz Festival by Miles’ various bands in 1955, 1958, 1966, 1967, 1969, 1971, 1973 and 1975, in Newport, Rhode Island; New York City; Berlin and Switzerland. The release date comes exactly 60 years to the date since Davis' performance at Newport in 1955.

The box, according to a press release, includes 296 minutes of music, nearly four hours of which is previously unreleased, “from Miles' debut performance at NJF in 1955 (a hastily arranged jam session featuring Thelonious Monk and Gerry Mulligan, that immediately led to the trumpeter's Columbia signing), to his final public perform­ance of the '70s in 1975 (at Lincoln Center during NJF-NY, the singular 'Mtume' named for Miles' favored percussion­ist of that decade).” The performances include appearances by the Kind Of Blue Sextet (with Cannonball Adderley, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb), and the “second great quintet” in '66 and '67 (with Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Tony Williams).

According to the press release, a number of Miles-related events will take place at this year’s Newport Jazz Festival, set for July 31, August 1 and 2 and still presided over by founder George Wein, now 89. In tribute to Davis, trumpeters Chris Botti, Peter Evans, Jon Faddis, Tom Harrell, Arturo Sandoval and Bria Skonberg will each perform one Miles Davis number during their sets.

St Germain announces first album in 15 years
(Published: May 04, 2015)

NONESUCH RECORDS TO RELEASE FIRST ALBUM IN 15 YEARS FROM FRENCH ELECTRONIC ARTIST ST GERMAIN

St Germain (aka Ludovic Navarre), whose albums Boulevard (1995) and Tourist (2000) originated a genre of French electronic music that later included artists like Daft Punk, has returned to the studio to create his first album in 15 years. The self-titled record marries percussive grooves, which have always been central to St Germain’s sound, with a new element: traditional Malian music. Today the artist reveals the album’s first track, “Real Blues,” which is available to download now with pre-orders of the album on iTunes and nonesuch.com. Nonesuch Records will release St Germain on October 9, 2015.

Composed, produced, recorded and mixed by Navarre at his Paris studio, the Magic House, and mastered by Alex Wharton at Abbey Road, “Real Blues” features a vocal sample from Lightnin’ Hopkins’ “You Caused My Heart to Weep” and instrumental contributions from Brazilian percussionist Jorge Bezerra, Malian kora player Mamadou Cherif Soumano, Malian guitarist and n’goni player Guimba Kouyate, and keyboardist and longtime St Germain collaborator Didier Davidas, from Martinique.

St Germain’s move closer to the source of the jazz and blues elements that were essential ingredients in Boulevard and the internationally acclaimed Tourist led to his interest in those genres’ roots in West African music. Tourist, which sold nearly three million copies worldwide (more than 300,000 in the U.S. alone), was equally beloved in jazz and electronic music circles, reaching #1 on Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz Albums chart and being named one of the Best Albums of the Year by Rolling Stone. In France, the album won three Victoires de la Musique awards (the French equivalent of GRAMMYs), including Best Jazz Album, Best Electronic Album and Best Live Performance.

On the 250-show Tourist tour, St Germain performed at venues ranging from London’s historic Royal Albert Hall to the Glastonbury and Coachella festivals, with guests including Herbie Hancock, Jamaican guitarist Ernest Ranglin, Jamaican jazz pianist Monty Alexander and legendary French jazz vocalist Claude Nougaro. Following the release of St Germain, Navarre will return to the road, beginning a European in November. A spring U.S. tour will be announced at a later date.
