Jon Balke: Siwan: Hafla

Read "Siwan: Hafla" reviewed by David Bruggink


A large appeal of ECM Records has always been its encouragement of cross-cultural collaboration. Across countries and genres, listeners and critics alike have reveled in records from Codona (1979) to Le Pas du Chat Noir (2001), Chants, Hymns and Dances (2004) and Arco Iris (2011).  There is joy in seeing musicians from diverse backgrounds come together to have their compositions treated with ...

ECM e le voci: Theo Bleckmann e Sinikka Langeland

Read "ECM e le voci: Theo Bleckmann e Sinikka Langeland" reviewed by Mario Calvitti


Con gli anni, le voci hanno acquistato un carattere sempre più rilevante nel catalogo ECM rispetto ai tempi della sua fondazione, quando l'etichetta bavarese era rivolta alla pubblicazione di musica di carattere prevalentemente jazzistico e quasi esclusivamente strumentale. I primi nomi di cantanti a trovar spazio nel catalogo dell'etichetta sono stati quelli di Norma Winstone, Aina ...

As much as ECM has carved ...

Norma Winstone: Dance Without Answer

Read "Norma Winstone: Dance Without Answer" reviewed by John Kelman


If there's a single accomplishment that can be attributed to ECM Records--though there are, of course, many in its 45-year history--it's that it welcomes unusual instrumentation with open arms, affording such collaborations the opportunity to grow, to evolve, and build a new language. From the pan-cultural CODONA Trilogy (2009), which collected the three genre-defying recordings made ...

Elina Duni Quartet: Matane Malit

Read "Matane Malit" reviewed by John Kelman


There was a time when jazz musicians were commonly recruited to play on pop records, because their purview was so broad that they could mold themselves into any context. Elina Duni's music may not be jazz by conventional definition, but its improvisational spirit clearly occupies the broader “jazz state of mind" to which the Albanian-born/raised and ...
