Digging into the ECM catalog

Digging into the ECM catalog

ECM recently put much of its catalog online for the first time. Here at YokoMiwa.com, we’ve been digging into those archives and wanted to recommend a few albums. If you’ve got a favorite, let us know in the comments.

Jan Garbarek: Witchi-Tai-To
This 1974 classic by Jan Garbarek is a must-hear. It features Bobo Stenson’s quartet, an incredibly sympathetic setting for Garbarek’s soaring sound.

Eberhard Weber: The Colors Of Chloe
The sound of Eberhard Weber’s bass is an essential part of the sound of ECM. Warm and inviting, this album will reward repeated exploration.

Terje Rypdal: Terje Rypdal/Miroslav Vitous/Jack DeJohnette
The title says it all. Those three names are exciting alone, and together they created one of the most electrifying albums in the ECM catalog.

Carla Bley: Rarum XV
Bley is one of the few jazz writers who isn’t afraid to use humor. This selection of her ECM work is a great introduction.
