Looking forward to the Motian, Frisell Weber, Rypdal and Abercrombie. The Torn has been overdue for a while. I didn't know anything about the Weber, I'm excited about that. I missed the last Vitous, but I should check out the new one.

ECM is a bit late to the Feldman flood aren't they? :lol:

I wonder about that Roscoe Mitchell, whether it will be solo or with a group. I loved the way he was recorded on "A Tribute to Lester"....hopefully this one will have equally good sound.

If this is the date I know of, there will be at least one surprising participant.

It starts to sound interesting...Hope this doesn't prevent Chewy to buy the cd.

I had that Rava in my hand today at a not-too-bad price. However, I'm a bit skint at the mo and would really like more Crispell if anything.

I think I know who that participant is - talked to two participants recently in fact, if I'm thinking of the right thing...

The Viola in My Life was the one that jumped out at me. Feldman would seem a natural for ECM.

I picked up the Rava last week. Much as I love Enrico's playing, it's the same shit as Tati and Easy Living before it.

Just like Stanko's ECM releases of the last 5 years, the compositions, feel, and playing are virtually indistinguishable between all the records. It seems as if nothing by way of a new approach has been attempted. Throw in Rava's Full of Life on Cam Jazz and it's the same thing, once again. Maybe repeated listenings will reveal something different, but based on the first two passes, The Words and the Days plays like background music for when the in-laws visit.

On a similar note--I know there was talk recently of ECM reissuing Maupin's Jewel in the Lotus. Has anyone heard anything more about this?

Kuhn has a new record out on Blue Note in the next weeks (trio, live, w/Ron Carter and Al Foster).

whoa, harsh review of Rava but txxx for candor-- that's the kinda talk we need MORE of 'round this joint. i ain't heard it & sorta hope yr wrong jmjkkjmjkmmjkkjmkjkmjk but there's every possibility yr right... sometimes the ECM sound in it's best known form works well, others time... uh-uh. bring back Steve Kuhn!

edc

Yeah, I hope I warm to it someday, Clem, but right now it's not very engaging.

Wow, your Rava right up is pretty harsh, indeed... I haven't heard any of these studio releases, but a few live shows I heard on radio sounded pretty fine to me. Of course there you don't have ECM sound, but main thing is I thought the tunes were different enough, stuff like "Art Deco", originals like "Sand" and "Happiness is to win the big prize" or the standard, "Nature Boy"... seems like it's wiser to stick with those live shows I know!

I happened to hear the group live several times, in recent years, and they were far more interesting than on disc (even if the CDs are quite good,, in my opinion). Last time I saw them, in fact, there was Mark Turner added on tenor sax, and the music was great. Maybe ECM should've released a live album.

Disappointment IS harsh, I guess!

For Ss and Gs I spun the disc again this morning. Though the lead off title track is nice, the rest seems very predictable from there. I guess expecting another Pilgrim and the Stars is a lot for ER to live up to, huh? :cool:
