Yet another Christmas release features the Christmas vocal polyphony of Cristobal de Morales, who is regarded as the first significant Spanish composer of the Renaissance. Like most compositions for this Christian feast, his Christmas motets circulated and were performed throughout Europe, traveling far beyond Spain's borders. His archaic, mystical and expressive musical language, that one almost might term place-less and timeless, must have played a role in this dissemination. Moreover, Morales was active not only in Spanish cathedrals but also spent many years of his creative career as a papal singer in the Sistine Chapel in Rome.

This one is very eagerly-awaited: it has been six years since Jan Garbarek’s last album as a leader (“In Praise of Dreams”). And, moreover, this double-album – recorded in Dresden’s Alter Schlachthof in October 2007 – is also the first-ever live set from the highly-popular Garbarek Group. The band, now including Brazilian bassist Yuri Daniel, powers through repertoire old and new, and the Norwegian saxophonist is in top form, his exchanges with Manu Katche’s bold, emphatic drums particularly exciting. Material includes “12 Moons”, “There Were Swallows”, “Voy Cantando”, an ecstatic version of “Paper Nut” (last heard on Shankar’s “Song for Everyone”) and much more. Released in time for Jan’s extensive autumn tour.

John Abercrombie's debut as leader has lived up to its title: the album is a collection of Timeless music, a fiery session with Jan Hammer on keyboards and drummer Jack DeJohnette that sounds as fresh on this reissue as when it was first released in 1975.

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
Here's another album I was exposed to as a kid through my parents. Little did I know that the kind of music presented on this album would later define my own personal taste in music: prog rock. I don't consider myself much of an EARTH BAND fan, only because I found too much of their stuff inconsistent (and some later albums like Chance too commercial for my liking). "Solar Fire" is one of the few times the band made a truly consistent album, in my book. Even their previous album, "Messin" (or "Get Your Rocks Off", the American version, which might as well be another album because of songs that are not featured on the British version) seemed like the band was "messin'" around (having some good songs, and so-so songs).

Masabumi Kikuchi makes his ECM debut with Sunrise. The album bursting with riveting spontaneity and free-form improvisation finds the well-versed musician joined by a star-studded lineup which includes double bassist Thomas Morgan and legendary drummer Paul Motian. The serene ten track work, comprised of mostly ballads, is executed flawlessly as each harmonic movement is handled with precision and clarity. The trio, all masters in the jazz world, deliver an album that is breathtaking.

The great British jazz singer Norma Winstone once again casts her net wide for source material for this third ECM album with Italian pianist Glauco Venier and German clarinetist / saxophonist Klaus Gesing. Alongside new pieces by Winstone/Gesing and by Venier, the trio covers tunes by singer-songwriters Nick Drake, Fred Neil and Tom Waits. They take a fresh approach to Madonna’s “Live To Tell”, and to Dave Grusin’s “It Might Be You”, as well as Ralph Towner’s “A Breath Away” (now with lyrics by Norma) and “Bein’ Green”, a children’s song elevated to jazz standard status by Sinatra, Stan Kenton, Ray Charles and many more. “As Winstone moves ever farther from the Great American Songbook,” All About Jazz observed, “it's certain that, with band mates as sympathetic as Gesing and Venier, there's precious little she can't do”.
