I noticed this last week. I streamed The Koln Concert today. A lot of Keith Jarrett's trio with Jack DeJohnette & Gary Peacock is up there as well as a lot of his solo material.

Dave Holland has a lot of outstanding ECM releases as well.


Quote:
Huge news for fans of Keith Jarrett, Steve Reich, Pat Metheny, Arvo Pärt, John Abercrombie, Vijay Iyer, and countless other seminal jazz, contemporary classical, and New Age artists and composers: The ECM Records catalogue is coming to Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, and all major streaming services. Previously, the Munich-based label had remained a steadfast holdout against streaming, though compilations of the biggest works by some of their most significant artists and some newer releases recently surfaced on Apple Music.

Now, ECM has announced that, under a new distribution deal with Universal Music, the entirety of their dense catalogue will be available on streaming by this Friday, November 17. It spans just under 50 years. Many releases are already available, including influential, genre-bending LPs like Keith Jarrett’s The Köln Concert, the original 1978 recording of Steve Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians (and other Reich works), Arvo Pärt’s Tabula Rasa, Meredith Monk’s Dolmen Music, Paul Bley’s Open, To Love, and many more.

In their statement, the label specified that the reason for the change in policy was “unauthorized streaming of recordings via video sharing websites, plus piracy, bootlegs, and a proliferation of illegal download sites.” They emphasized that they believed it was “important to make the catalogue accessible within a framework where copyrights are respected.”

Why do you think he’s a douchebag? Is it the moaning?

Hey Boots, got any discs on that enormous list of the ECM catalog that you'd recommend? I'm always on the lookout for good little known piano trios/quartets in the vein of EST, Simple Acoustic Trio, Impossible Gentlemen, Hristo Vitchev, Helge Lien, etc. I know there are gems in there.

A lot of great Dave Holland Quartet/Quintet/Sextet/Big Band recordings on ECM.

In terms of lesser known: Tomasz Stanko (trumpeter) has a great quartet with ECM releases (Soul of Things, Suspended Night).

Marcin Wasilewski has a great piano trio (which is the same band as above minus the trumpet player). They do a great standardized version of Diamonds and Pearls

I was listening through all those trio recordings yesterday, it does take a bit of patience/work to get over his vocalizing and just focus on the music. If it weren't for that, this stuff would be up there with some of the late Bill Evans stuff when it comes to my top trio rankings.

Would you guys say there are KJ trio recordings where the vocalizing is minimally audible?

Don’t know about minimal vocalizations, but the live Blue Note recordings are a must. 30 minutes Autumn Leaves FTW

Charles Lloyd has some outstanding ECM records too. Currently listening to Hyperion with Higgins with Brad Mehldau, John Abercrombie, Larry Grenadier & Billy Higgins. What a great lineup

I love this one too from that same Blue Note set
