    There is also an Instagram account dedicated to going through the whole catalog: https://www.instagram.com/ecm_listening/

    I came across this interview with Richie Beirach that blew me away. He describes what it was like working with Manfred, and how their working relationship eventually soured.

     

    This Interview confirms some thoughts I had about Manfred Eicher as a producer/personality.


  2. A Hi-Fi dealer once told me there is no player on the market that reads every CD without problems. The percentage is very low, but every now and then it happens. Last week I got a new recently manufactured CD and it took three attempts until my Marantz would read it.

    Gene Rush played (beautifully) on the incredible early Lloyd McNeill albums, 'Washington Suite' and 'Aisha'.  Not otherwise familiar with him.

    Rush was on an Atlantic LP by Father Jack Herrera but played only one solo IIRC. You can listen to it on YouTube.

    After recording with McNeill and White he alternated with Rene Koopman at the piano chair of the Hot Cotton Jazz Band which recorded ten albums in the 1980's. Nothing more in the Tom Lord Disco.
