Previously in this series we have surveyed record labels as representative of the jazz trends in their timesfor example bebop on Dial in the 40s, mainstream jazz on Verve in the 50s, and hard bop on Blue Note in the 60s. The German label ECM can be seen as representative of a major trend of the 70s. Joachim-Ernst Behrendt writes that this is the decade when "European jazz found itself." The early recordings on the ECM label in this hour of Jazz at 100.
