Dans ses albums de poésie « en chanté », Susanne Abbuehl accorde aux mots énormément d’espace où se mouvoir. Pour elle, “mettre des vers en musique“ signifie bien plus que fixer les cadences d’un poème dans le cadre d’un arrangement aux formes immuables. Sur “The Gift“, tout comme dans ses précédents disques “April” et “Compass”, elle s’insinue au plus intime des textes dont elle s’empare, explorant dans un même geste amoureux leurs rythmes intérieurs, leurs mélodies propres et leurs sens, pour en quelque sorte les en libérer imperceptiblement et les laisser flotter dans un espace neuf, en toute indépendance… Cette approche singulière est on ne peut mieux illustrée sur ce troisième album que la chanteuse néerlando-suisse publie sur le label ECM, accompagnée du groupe peut-être le plus réceptif qu’elle ait jamais eue à sa disposition.

Enregistré dans le sud de la France durant l’été 2012 “The Gift“, comme les deux précédents, a été produit par Manfred Eicher.

Parmi les textes mis en musique dans ce nouvel opus se mêlent des poèmes d’Emily Dickinson, Emily Brontë, Sara Teasdale ou encore Wallace Stevens, ainsi que les propres mots de la chanteuse. Là où “Compass“ privilégiait le thème du voyage, “The Gift“ se concentre cette fois sur les plaisirs que l’on peut éprouver à rester au port, chez soi, et cherche à saisir la richesse de cette expérience sensitive de la permanence d’un lieu au fil des saisons : “Futiles – les Vents / Pour un cœur au port / Plus de boussole / Plus de cartes !“ chante admirablement Abbuehl, dans son interprétation si sensible du “Wild Nights“ d’Emily Dickinson.

Dickinson (1830-1886), Emily Brontë (1818-1848) et Sara Teasdale (1884-1933) étaient toutes trois, par choix, tempérament ou circonstances, des écrivains solitaires. Mais ce n’est pas parce qu’on reste cloîtré que cela tempère pour autant les élans de l’imagination. Un paysage qu’il soit visuel ou sonore peut-être l’objet d’un rêve si nécessaire. Dickinson, encore : “Pour faire une prairie il faut/ Un trèfle et une abeille/ Une seul trèfle, une abeille/ Et quelques rêveries/ La rêverie suffit/ Si vous êtes à court d’abeilles. »

L’idée que l’on puisse interpréter un monde à travers quelques signes choisis est un thème récurrent de ces poèmes. “In My Room“ est une adaptation du poème de Wallace Stevens “On the Surface of Things“ (publié en 1919) : “Dans ma chambre, le monde excède ma compréhension ; / Mais quand je me promène je vois qu’il se compose de trois ou quatre collines et un nuage.“ En quelques coups de pinceaux le groupe d’Abbuehl donne à ces mots toute leur consistance…

Sept années ont passé depuis la parution de “Compass“. Dans l’intervalle, Abbuehl a continué d’écrire et de composer mais surtout a reconfiguré sa formation. Wolfert Brederode demeure néanmoins au cœur du dispositif. Il faut dire que voilà vingt ans maintenant que ce pianiste néerlandais rencontré sur les bancs du Conservatoire Royal de la Haye, accompagne la chanteuse. Celle-ci ne tarit pas d’éloge à son sujet, vantant sa capacité à saisir l’humeur du moment pour lui donner forme, à proposer des idées musicales et à les développer. Dans le groupe d’Abbuehl, les harmonies subtiles de Brederode sont toujours au service de la musique et du contexte poétique et jamais le pianiste ne donne le sentiment de tirer la couverture à lui.

Virtuose de la trompette et grand spécialiste du bugle, le Suisse Matthieu Michel a intégré l’univers de la chanteuse en 2009, se révélant aussitôt un partenaire musical d’une grande sensibilité. “Nous ne parlons jamais de la direction que la musique devrait suivre. Tout surgit dans la mise en jeu, sans aucun travail de conceptualisation.“ Le bugle de Matthieu Michel fait souvent office de seconde voix mélodique dans ce disque. Parfois le bugle et la voix dérivent ensemble en de fascinants unissons comme dans “This And My Heart“…

On a déjà pu juger de l’extrême finesse du jeu de batterie du Finnois Olavi Louhivuori sur l’album “Dark Eyes“ de Tomasz Stanko. Susanne a joué la première fois avec lui à Helsinki en 2007 : “Ce qui frappe instantanément c’est à quel point son jeu entre en résonance avec la voix. Il trouve toujours de nouvelles approches, de nouvelles couleurs et sa batterie ouvre la musique dans toutes ses dimensions.“

Là où dans ses précédents disques Abbuehl puisait volontiers dans le répertoire d’autres compositeurs de jazz — on se souvient de Chick Corea et de Sun Ra dans “Compass“ ; de Carla Bley et Thelonious Monk dans “April“ — la musique dans “The Gift“ est dans sa quasi totalité de sa plume. Seule exception, “Soon (Five Years ago)“ dont les paroles sont de Susanne mais la musique de Wolfgang Lackerschmid.

José James has already established himself as a trailblazer for his intoxicating blend of jazz, hip-hop, R&B and electronica from his previous three albums. His 2008 debut The Dreamer and its 2010 follow-up, BlackMagic – both produced by the world-renowned DJ Gilles Peterson – transformed the Minneapolis-born, New York-based singer into an underground sensation in both the modern jazz and DJ culture scenes. His musical path follows its own rhyme and reason. James is a musical omnivore, an artist that resists being pigeonholed, equally at ease on stage with jazz legend McCoy Tyner as he is in the studio with rapper Oh No or electronica pioneer Flying Lotus. His new album and Blue Note Records debut, No Beginning No End, is a seamless musical experience that moves between different styles with remarkable fluidity, bound together by James’ transcendent voice. It marks a new chapter in the artistic journey of the 33-year-old singer/songwriter. Conceived, recorded and produced independently without any recording contract, the album is his most personal statement yet. Source

By JON GARELICK from http://thephoenix.com

Since one of the first times I heard Christian Scott — at Sweet Lorraine's in New Orleans — he's always had an edge. It wasn't just his trumpet, but his band. They weren't playing jazz swing, but tricky groove patterns that built in intensity, driven by the gleaming, fierce sound of Scott's horn. It was well-considered and disciplined music, but not especially concerned with being polite.

Now, six years later, Scott (who comes with his band to Scullers on August 10) is still riding that edge. His fourth studio release for Concord Records is a double-CD, an audacious move in its own right. Its title, Christian aTunde Adjuah, is Scott's adopted African name. And the titles of individual songs hint at the range of subject matter that Scott is referencing: from his New Orleans childhood and history with that city's Mardi Gras Indians ("Spy Boy/Flag Boy"), to the city's post-Katrina history ("New New Orleans-King Adjuah Stomp"), to further-flung topics like ethnic cleansing and rape in Sudan ("Fatima Aisha Rokero 400") and domestic violence in the US ("When Marissa Stands Her Ground").

Scott knows there are limits to what he can accomplish with instrumental music that was created with very particular topics in mind. In fact, when I get him on the phone at his home in Harlem, he bristles a bit when I suggest that some of his songs are "political." "I look at it more as a social thing. As I understand it, 'political' is about the dissemination of power among people. With the music that I make, I'm not telling anyone that they're supposed to be going against anything or choose sides. I'm just illuminating things that I've experienced or things I want people to think about."

When you hear the album's first track, which begins with a piercing high-trumpet blast over roiling drums and unstable, rock-inflected guitar chords, you know that Scott is off about something, though you might not know what that is if you didn't see the title — maybe you know about the Rokero 400, maybe you have to look it up. Maybe you don't care and just want to listen. That's fine with Scott.

"Of course, I want people to know what happened to those women in Rokero. But if someone comes up to me after a gig and says, 'I got the new album, and when I heard the first song it made me think of the things I had to endure to beat cancer,' I'm not gonna tell that person, 'That's not what it's about."

Not every song deals with social strife. "Spy Boy/Flag Boy" harks back to the roles he and his twin brother Kiel played in his grandfather Big Chief Donald Harrison Sr.'s Mardi Gras Indian tribe, and the cover shows Scott in full regalia, surrounded by the peach-colored feathers of his Indian "suit." The album mixes hip-hop beats, African rhythms, and rock, informed by drummer Jamire Williams's encyclopedic vocabulary of beats and Matthew Stevens's ability to shift between rock-guitar edge and jazz flow. There are cinematic "interludes" throughout, marked by pianist Lawrence Fields's harmonic drifts.

Perhaps the most telling title is "Who They Wish I Was." On it, Scott's muted trumpet converses in short, eloquent musical sentences with the relentless patter and hum of Williams's snare and Fields's piano. That Harmon-muted trumpet, the sound of those lines, are the only musical hints that this piece has to do with some people's "wish" that Scott pattern himself after Miles Davis. Scott's dense liner notes take specific issue with the desire of his elders that he — or jazz — be any one thing. "Scott's still my name," he tells me on the phone. "I'm just adding on to the name so it reflects a more global idea of what my history is." Hey, no argument from me. But I'm enjoying the enlightening and spirited debates Scott is having with his bandmates and the world at large.

By NPR Staff  From https://www.npr.org

Cassandra Wilson was once described by Time magazine as "America's best singer." Wilson was born in segregated Mississippi — also the birthplace of the blues — but she's always been on a journey to explore other sounds and influences.

The latest stop on her journey is the new album Another Country, a collaboration with Italian-born guitarist Fabrizio Sotti. Wilson says that as a young girl, she was eager to learn the guitar and asked her father to teach her — but he refused.

"He said no — he wouldn't teach me. He gave me a guitar and a Mel Bay book to learn the chords and teach myself," Wilson tells NPR's David Greene. "He did that because I had just finished seven years of piano lessons, and of course piano lessons were very restrictive. And he wanted me to develop a relationship with an instrument that was much more intimate, and a relationship that I initiated.

"It worked out well for me," she says. "I still love the piano, but the guitar is my heart."


Tracklist :
01. Red Guitar 4:34
02. No More Blues 4:17
03. O Sole Mio 5:37
04. Deep Blue 2:27
05. Almost Twelve 4:22
06. Passion 5:17
07. When Will I See You Again 6:25
08. Another Country 4:13
