Poised over the keyboard, with forearms pounding out thunderous clusters of sound-that is how Henry Cowell (1897-1965) has entered popular imagination. During the 1920s, he crisscrossed the United States and Europe, gaining notoriety for his physicality with the piano and the unorthodox sounds that resulted. But this composer of clusters also wrote singable tunes. The composer of clusters also produced consonance. And, this guru of American experimentalism also respected tradition, whether of the East or the West. Cowell's tremendous innovation went on to influence generations of composers afterwards, from John Cage to Frank Zappa.These various and contradictory sides of Cowell the composer are most evident in his chamber music. The resulting "Mosiac" is revealed on this 2-CD set, with works spanning his career from his youth in California in 1916 to two years before his death in New York in 1963.

Henry Cowell: Piano Music (1993)
Classical | EAC (APE & CUE) | 248 MB

The deceptively simple title notwithstanding, this disc can be described as anything but. Cowell’s signing with Mose Asch’s Folkways label makes perfect sense since both viewed sounds of any stripe and sort as potential conveyers of musical and cultural information. He regularly looked to the natural and industrial worlds as sources of inspiration, rigorously eschewing conventional structures and patterns in his piano works. He also pioneered elements of atonality and "extended techniques" such as venturing into the innards of his instrument to maneuver the strings directly. The nineteen pieces collected here are mainly representative of his early works, which made groundbreaking use of tonal clusters amongst other innovations.

Ralph Samuelson - The Universal Flute (2016)
Contemporary Classical, World | Innova 942 | 2016 | EAC (FLAC image, cue, log) | Booklet | Various File Hosts
Ralph Samuelson (shukuhachi), Yoko Hiraoka (koto, shamisen and voice), Tomoko Sugawara (kugo harp), Steve Gorn (bansuri)

Shakuhachi players of old followed the path of ichion-jobutsu, or “enlightenment in a single tone.” The spiritual element of the simple bamboo flute with its notched mouthpiece and five fingerholes is essential to its existence, and part of what led Henry Cowell to refer to it as “the universal flute.” Ralph Samuelson’s album shares that name, and presents remarkably evocative works for the shakuhachi by American composers.

Six trio selections by the Stanley Cowell Trio, featuring Stanley Clarke on bass and Jimmy Hopps on skins. Elastic and flowing best describe the mellow "Maimoun"; Cowell's crisp keyboarding is determined and feisty, and Clarke's dark, moody bass solo consummates the excursion. Cowell and Clarke display amazing technique on "Ibn Mukhtarr Mustapha," and Hopps' impressionistic drumming is head clearing.

Musa Ancestral Streams remains a relative oddity in the pantheon of jazz's black consciousness movement – a solo piano set of stunning reach and scope, its adherence to intimacy contrasts sharply with the bold, multi-dimensional sensibilities that signify the vast majority of post-Coltrane excursions into spiritual expression, yet the sheer soulfulness and abandon of Stanley Cowell's performance nevertheless vaults the record into the same physical and metaphysical planes.

Genre: Jazz, Vocal Jazz | Label: SteepleChase

For a good part of his career, pianist Stanley Cowell has had greater exposure recording for labels in Europe and Japan than in his native United States. Prayer for Peace marks his first recording in over a decade, though it is immediately apparent that Cowell has not been playing in a vacuum but continuing to evolve. In addition to the seasoned rhythm section, consisting of bassist Mike Richmond and drummer Victor Lewis, the pianist features his daughter Sunny, who sings or plays viola on several tracks.

È la primavera del 1864 a Parigi, e la capitale vive la grande trasformazione voluta da Haussmann, delegato dell’imperatore, che ha giurato di fare dell’angusta città medievale il gioiello più splendente d’Europa. Interi quartieri vengono abbattuti per lasciare spazio a magnifici boulevard fiancheggiati da eleganti ville a schiera…

Jazz / Hard Bop / Post Bop / Piano Trio

Stanley Cowell is simply dazzling throughout most of these 1969 trio sessions made for Black Lion, excelling as a composer and pianist. He's accompanied by the sympathetic playing of bassist Steve Novosel and drummer Jimmy Hopps. The tantalizing opener, "Departure," constantly shifts gears in a driving post-bop setting, as Novosel's droning arco bass and Hopps' over the top percussion contrast with the beauty of the leader's ballad "Sweet Song." The gorgeous and understated jazz waltz "Wedding March" was actually composed for the entry of the bridesmaids at the composer's nuptials.
