  3. Early ECM albums

    Hey all, I'm finally getting around to doing a long-contemplated Night Lights show about the first several years of the ECM label. Obvious candidates for inclusion are Mal Waldron's Free At Last and Marion Brown's Afternoon Of A Georgia Faun, Jarrett's Facing You, Circle's Paris Concert, Dave Holland's Conference of the Birds, etc., but what are some of your favorites from the 1969-1973 era? (I think 1973 is as late as I'm going to go, which still leaves me with a ton of material to choose from. Here's an overall list of ECM releases: List of ECM Records albums

  5. I decided to put this here instead of in the main ECM thread because I'm guessing the interest will be more general - but in January, ECM will be releasing a 2013 live recording of a quintet with Jack, Muhal Richard Abrams, Roscoe Mitchell, Henry Threadgill and Richard Larry Gray as a 50th anniversary tribute to the AACM (with compositions by Jack, Muhal, Roscoe, Henry as well as some collective improv). It's live so some of Manfred Eicher's more controversial production choices should be less less disruptive, I'm guessing.
  6. What would be your recommendations to somebody not really into the ECM's jazz output? I do not see any new remastering info. Thanks Alex
  7. Food is touring in advance of a forthcoming release on ECM. First time in the US! “Contemporary music through and through, driven by a rhythmic urgency and mix of acoustic and electronic sound that could only be happening now” - The GuardianUK Iain Ballamy - saxophones / electronics Thomas Strønen - drums / electronics Since its first concert in 1998 this groundbreaking group has toured internationally making thought provoking improvised music of great depth, texture and beauty and have defined a new kind of lyrical electro-acoustic improvisation. Iain Ballamy from the UK on saxophones/electronics and Norwegian Thomas Strønen drums/percussion/electronics use sound, space, and contrast to produce ever-changing moods. By combining acoustic elements including bells, blocks, gongs and lyrical saxophone, the music is enhanced and tempered with live sampling and drums generating atmospheres ranging from minimalist to turbulent. Lately, Food has worked with artists such as trumpeter Nils Petter Molvaer, Austrian guitarist Christian Fennesz and Indian sitar/vocalist Prakash Sontakke. Food is touring in support of their 8th album out on ECM.
