15 années sont passées comme un souffle depuis le premier témoignage discographique de cette merveilleuse entente entre David Linx-Paolo Fresu et Diederik Wissels. Pour des artistes aussi prolixes, se donner le temps d'ouvrir un deuxième chapitre est un cadeau inestimable. Inestimable comme l'empreinte de David Linx et Diederik Wissels sur l'univers du jazz vocal et de la composition, et comme celle de Paolo Fresu. Une manière de grande classe partagée sur le fil de la sensibilité. « The Whistleblowers » est un disque d'artistes libres et en pleine maturité , galvanisés par l'enjeu du plaisir et de l'inventivité à renouveler. Un répertoire tout neuf, qui à la fois rappelle quelques fondamentaux (mélodie, lyrisme et coolitude, vocabulaire et articulation), et s'amuse à nous surprendre!
Paramount among independent modern jazz record labels, Black Saint was founded in Italy back in 1975 and grew to encompass more than 190 albums, while its comparatively mainstream sister enterprise, Soul Note, emerged in 1979 and eventually racked up a phenomenal index of more than 350 releases. After purchasing both gold mines, CAM Jazz began reissuing the cream of these catalogs in affordable box sets, setting the stage for a full-scale reassessment of modern creative music. The Henry Threadgill edition contains no less than seven remastered albums, packaged like little LPs in perfectly reproduced jackets, each with the original print scaled down in miniature but still legible with the aid of a magnifying lens.

Percussionist Charles K. Noyes was a very active member of the downtown New York avant scene of the late '70s and early '80s, performing with musicians such as John Zorn, Elliott Sharp, and Fred Frith, before retreating from view during the '90s. Full Stop provides a fairly full picture of what he was up to, compiling solo works recorded from 1990-1999. The overall mood is a bleak and harsh kind of ambient music, soundtracks for a barren, desensitized landscape but one that holds more than a hint of mystery. Percussion as a rhythmic element is almost entirely absent here. Instead, Noyes utilizes a range of processed sounds, strings, electronics, and the occasional musical saw to produce sonic pictures that might be described as the Eno of On Land in a particularly morose and misanthropic mood…
