From reading the What we are listening to [20xx] thread (as well as an unhealthy amount of goth!) there are a lot of albums from ECM.
I know this will nearly kill some of you to pick just 4 and I’m pretty sure everyone is aware of the 4 I picked from my modest 32 ECM albums, but it would develop a great resource and the just 4 should keep the thread from being monopolised by one person’s taste.
(To cater for the huge ECM fans amongst you perhaps a post each month of another 4 would allow the thread to live and avoid the monopoly mentioned above).
I don’t have the vocabulary to describe music, these are all just beautiful albums that insinuate themselves on repeated listening. I’m a drums fan and am surprised that 2 of my 4 don’t have drummers on board. It speaks for the rhythm therein.
These 4 were my first 4 puraches after Bob Stenson and Jan Garbarek’s rarum.
They have led me to populate my collection with a lot more Jarret, Garbarek, Towner and Peacock.
Over you you…
