upcoming ECM releases: Marc Johnson, Eliane Elias, Michael Formanek

Swept Away from Marc Johnson (bass) & Eliane Elias (piano) featuring Joey Barron (drums) with Joe Lovano (tenor sax). Johnsons previous ECM release Shades of Jade was a keeper, so I’m looking forward to this one too.

We learn from the press release that Eliane Elias is now married to Johnson, she was at one time married to Randy Brecker. Fascinating.

The new Michael Formanek (bass) album is titled Small Places. Tim Berne (alto saxophone), Craig Taborn (piano) and Gerald Cleaver (drums) join the composer.

Tim Berne always plays with such interesting sideman, so I’m taking notice of Small Places, also looking for a copy of his performance on Formanek’s ECM debut  The Rub and Spare Change. Pianist Craig Taborn is another good reason to check these disks out.

Berne’s album Snakeoil is a favorite of mine this year, it’s deep, with so many sections to each composition. The band performed their next planned ECM album at the Greenwich House of Music, NYC last June (2012), it’s in the same bag, great dense music, I’m anticipating hearing that album someday when it’s is recorded and released.

ECM seems to be paying more attention to New York City Jazz these days!
