Σαν σήμερα, 4 Μαρτίου 1947, γεννήθηκε στο Mysen της Νορβηγίας ο Jan Garbarek, ένας από τους μεγαλύτερους εν ζωή σαξοφωνίστες. Η λίστα των κυκλοφοριών του ως leader, και των συνεργασιών του με κορυφαίους μουσικούς από το χώρο της jazz και της κλασικής, είναι ατελείωτη. Από μια καριέρα που απλώνεται σε 6 δεκαετίες [ξεκίνησε να ηχογραφεί στα late ’60s] διαλέγουμε “τυχαία” τρία κομμάτια
-Το πρώτο “The Picture” είναι από το άλμπουμ του Jan Garbarek Group [John Taylor- p, BIll Connors – g, Eberhard Weber – b, Jon Christensen – d] Photo With Blue Sky, White Cloud, Wires, Windows and Red Roof [1979]
-Το δεύτερο είναι το ομώνυμο κομμάτι από το άλμπουμ του I Took Up The Runes του 1990.
-Και το τελευταίο κομμάτι προέρχεται από συνεργασία του σαξοφωνίστα με το φωνητικό συγκρότημα παλιάς μουσικής Hilliard Ensemble. Το “Parce Mihi Domine” είναι σύνθεση του Ισπανού συνθέτη του 16ου αιώνα Cristobal De Morales.

On this date, March 4, 1947, Jan Garbarek, one of the greatest living saxophonists, was born in Mysen, Norway. His list of releases as a leader, and his collaborations with leading musicians from the jazz and classical field, is endless. From a career spanking over 6 decades [he started recording in the late ’60s] we pick “randomly” three tracks:
-The first one, “The Picture” is from the album by Jan Garbarek Group [John Taylor-p, BIll Connors – g, Eberhard Weber – b, Jon Christensen – d] Photo With Blue Sky, White Cloud, Wires, Windows and Red Roof [1979].
-The second one is the title track from his 1990 album I Took Up The Runes.
-And the third one comes from a collaboration of JG with the early music vocal group, Hilliard Ensemble. “Parce Mihi Domine” is written by the Spanish 16th century composer Cristobal De Morales.

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
