Show only: CD (6)MP3 (5)Original Artist (4)Contributed To (2)

Phoenix Phoenix CD (2005)
CD $16.45 Buy It  Details
Patrick Zimmerli CD discography Usually, when jazz and electronica get together, it's the former that ends up taking a back seat to the latter -- a string bass sample lopes along underneath laid-back synth chords, or a saxophone tries to honk its way through a thicket of over-produced keyboards. Either way, the strategy is to take easy listening pap and give it a superficial gloss of hipness. The sixth album by saxophonist and composer Patrick Zimmerli takes just the opposite tack, and succeeds brilliantly. Instead of using disconnected jazz elements to spice up electronic ...
Book of Hours Book of Hours CD (2002)
CD $15.39 Buy It  Details
Patrick Zimmerli albums The Book of Hours, by New York-based composer/saxophonist Patrick Zimmerli supported by the Belgian little big band Octurn with previous collaborator Ben Monder guesting on guitar, should appeal to a broad spectrum of jazz listeners from straight-ahead to avant-garde. For those of the more straight-ahead persuasion, the album presents music of great beauty and melodicism; Zimmerli employs often bright and crisp colors and textures (fully realized here by the ten likeminded musicians of Octurn), and there is also a warmth that suggests the post-Gil Evans approaches of a composer like ...
Explosion Explosion CD (1997)
CD $12.45 Buy It  Details
Patrick Zimmerli music CDs What makes this debut recording so interesting is the way in which composer and tenor saxophonist Patrick Zimmerli incorporates an entirely unique compositional aesthetic. Joined only by electric guitarist Ben Monder, electric bassist Stomu Takeshi, and percussionist Satoshi Takeishi, Zimmerli melds advanced contemporary classical technique with offbeat jazz rhythms, leading to a fascinating blend. For all its complexity, there is something deliciously accessible about the music, although melodies are rare, harmonies are layered, and solos are angular. Monder proves himself a wonderfully innovative soloist, void of cliché. The two standards ...
Expansion Expansion CD (2000)
CD Check Availability  Details Reissued
Patrick Zimmerli discography Saxophonist/composer Patrick Zimmerli follows up 1995's Explosion with another challenging work from the same ensemble. As was the case on the previous record, two pieces are from jazz repertoire: Thelonious Monk's "Evidence," set to a perky 7/8 groove, and the standard tune "Invitation," performed in a relatively straightforward manner, albeit with extensive reharmonization. Zimmerli's originals are as abstract and exotic as ever. "Sand," the opener, begins with a drone note that sets up a strikingly subtle, Eastern-influenced rubato theme. (Kevin Whitehead's second-by-second analysis in the liner notes is well worth ...

Modern Music Modern Music CD (2011)
CD $19.19 Buy It  Details
Patrick Zimmerli CD discography Down Beat (p.91) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "As breathtaking as the performances are, they are about bringing to life Zimmerli's original and interpretive ideas." JazzTimes (p.52) - "[A] lovely duet session....It's a lyrical, harmonically dense album by two players known for lyricism and harmonic density." Mojo (Publisher) (p.99) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[S]uperbly done....'Lonely Woman' and a chiming reduction of Reich's 'Music For Musicians' are highlights." Modern Music, the collaborative recording between longtime colleagues and jazz pianists Brad Mehldau and Kevin Hays, and composer and arranger Patrick ...
Jazzblues Jazzblues CD (1999)
CD $18.19 Buy It  Details
Patrick Zimmerli albums These hip, contemporary sounds were recorded in 1995 and finally issued on the Cathexis label in 1999. The delay created an unfortunate gap between this release and Jeff Williams' 1994 debut, Coalescence, which was graced with the very same personnel: Williams on drums, Kevin Hays on piano, and Doug Weiss on bass, with the dual-sax team of Tim Ries and Patrick Zimmerli up front. (Williams' difficulties in getting his music out to the public inspired the title Jazzblues.) Williams' work on this all-original set does much to ...
