I have all of those apart from the Lake and Lande. I should have taken part...I may have identified couple.

As a big fan of Mr Gonzalez's music it's interesting to see what he chose.

Off to find the two I don't own now

Am I correctly counting five ECM's?

Seven by my count

Kenyatta, Abercrombie, Motian, Vesala, Lande, Garbarek, Andersen.

It's no surprise to me that  Mr G has such great taste

Thanks, forgot about the Kenyatta being ECM (and boy does that one need a CD issue), and have never heard of Vesala.

There's lots of discover with Vesala. Drummer from Finland who ran a band called Sound And Fury for many years.  One of the best live experiences I had, only saw them once though. A number of albums on ECM, all of which are very good, unique sound which many would lazily categorise as ECM Nordic Jazz, I wouldn't. Great depth to his music, obviously European rather than American in influence.  Much of it was orchestrated/written by Iro Haarla but she's uncredited. A very fine musician in her own right.

I've since picked up the albums from #s 4, 8 & 10. Several more to go with that Brackeen at the top of the list.

Charles Brackeen's Worshippers Come Nigh is amazing as well. 

Excellent array of music on this test!
