ECM producer Manfred Eicher is the recipient of the 2010 Lifetime Achievement Award from venerable US jazz magazine DownBeat. The award was established in 1981, as a counterpart to the DownBeat Hall of Fame, “to recognize the accomplishments and contributions of the jazz pioneers, entrepreneurs and clarion callers who work tirelessly to connect jazz artists with audiences around the world."

The award follows two consecutive wins for Eicher as Producer of the Year in the DownBeat Critics Polls of 2008 and 2009.
