CD Review: Manu Katché - Touchstone for Manu

(Review by Lance)
This is an absolutely enthralling compilation. Contemporary? Yes! Melodic? Most certainly!! Touchstone For Manu is one of those very rare occasions when it DOES mean a thing if it ain't got that swing! Then again, maybe it does have that swing, Upon reflection, that swing is there in all good jazz, even if we don't always recognise it! We can be fooled as sometimes it's disguised in different forms, time signatures, even when there is no discernible  time signature, key or changes. But, if it's got it, it's got it.
As Lieber and Stoller, Peggy Lee and Zoe Gilby have said - Some Cats Know.
These cats know!
Released August 18 on ECM.
Lance..
Notes: A specially-priced limited edition compilation of the best of Manu Katché on ECM. 
Here the French drummer - his strongly propulsive yet relaxed groove is unlike any other drummer's - is joined in performances of his tunes by an outstanding cast of soloists including Jan Garbarek, Tomasz Stanko, Nils Petter Molvaer, Trygve Seim, Mathias Eick, Marcin Wasilewski, Tore Brunborg, and Jacob Young. 
Recorded between 2004-2012 in Oslo, New York and Pernes-les-Fontaines, and drawn from his widely acclaimed albums Neighbourhood, Playground, Third Round, and the eponymously-titled Manu Katché.
Collective Personnel: Manu Katché (drums), Mathias Eick, Tomasz Stanko (trumpet), Nils Petter Molvær (trumpet, loops), Jan Garbarek, Trygve Seim (tenor saxophone), Tore Brunborg (saxophones), Jacob Young (guitars), Marcin Wasilewski, Jason Rebello (piano), Jim Watson (piano, Hammond B3 organ), Slawomir Kurkiewicz (double bass), Pino Palladino (bass)
