Dominic Miller: Absinthe

Read "Absinthe" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Guitarist Dominic Miller''s 2017 ECM debut Silent Light was a low key affair that focused on his solo classical guitar (plus a bit of light percussion). The sequel features a full quintet with a rhythm section. A bigger sound, but with a similar impressionistic flavor. Miller's liner notes make that visual art reference explicit: as a ...

Nonostante un silenzio discografico che si prolunga ormai da parecchi anni (il suo ultimo disco in studio risale al 2004), il sassofonista norvegese Jan Garbarek mantiene sempre una intensa attività concertistica, svolta principalmente in Europa.

Joachim Kuhn: Love & Peace

Read "Love & Peace" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

The German ACT label achieved global recognition when they issued the Esbjorn Svensson Trio album Viaticum (2005) and they warrant broader discovery by U.S. jazz fans. Though their country's best known label casts a global shadow over its competition, the ACT catalog has included Richie Beirach, Lars Danielsson, Vijay Iyer, Manu Katche, Rudresh Mahanthappa, Bugge Wesseltoft, ...

Antonio Faraò, l'eklektiko

Read "Antonio Faraò, l'eklektiko" reviewed by Daniele Vogrig

Eklektik è l'ultimo album di Antonio Faraò e a buon diritto può essere considerato un sapiente concentrato di fusion, capace di trascendere generi ...

Five Classic ECM Titles in High Res

Read "Five Classic ECM Titles in High Res" reviewed by John Kelman

If ever there were a label that deserved to have its catalog released in a high resolution format, it's Munich's ECM Records. Since its inception in 1969, the multiple award-winning record label headed by producer Manfred Eicher has truly redefined how, initially, jazz and improvised music recordings could--and, at least for some, perhaps should--sound. Attention to ...

Manu Katché: Unstatic

Read "Unstatic" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Drummer Manu Katché's career has been a long, circuitous one that began in rock, working for an extended period with Peter Gabriel, Sting and Joni Mitchell. In the cases of Sting and Mitchell, there was a jazz sensibility present in much of their work. Simultaneously, Katché's work on the ECM label was taking shape as he ...

Manu Katche: Unstatic

Read "Unstatic" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

French drummer Manu Katche always seemed something of an odd man at ECM Records on his four solo discs--warm, groove-centric, gregarious sets competing with the Nordic cool of Tord Gustavsen, or the thoughtful melancholy of trumpeter Tomas Stanko and pianist Marcin Wasilewski. And--like few artists in the ECM stable--he crossed successfully into the rock world via ...
