    Jan Garbarek, I Took Up The Runes

    - my first ECM and the one that has had an effect on my own playing and musical sensibility as a drummer

    Nowadays, I dig Tord Gustavsen quite a bit.

    Coincidentally, just came back from a great used record store nearby with $100 worth of original German pressings of a few artists from the 70-80's. Can't wait to clean them up and go for a spin.

  • i'll pick 7 of 'em;
    Anouar Brahem - thimar, la pas du chat noir
    John Surman - coruscating
    Ketil Bjørnstad & David Darling - the river, epigraphs
    Ketil Bjørnstad, David Darling, Terje Rypdal, Jon Christensen - the sea I-II

    because I am about to
    eclipse my sun...
    and to collapse
    my star,
    and snuff out
    my flame
    and reach out
    into the void..
    and reach out
    to the void....

    New to ECM

    I'm new to the wonderful record label of ECM but I think my favourite so far is .80/81 by Pat Metheny. Hopefully my next purchase will be My Song ByKeith Jarrett. I can see myself like a lot of the catalogue though.

  • Jack DeJohnette - Special Edition

    My first ECM album back in 1980 something, still one of my favourites.

    "Colours of Chloe" Eberhard Weber
    "The River of Anyder" Stefano Battaglia Trio

  • 'The Jewel In The Lotus' by Bennie Maupin is my favourite at the moment (I've just listened to it for the first time) there isn't a weak track on the album.

  • This is a great topic. The albums I would take in the wilderness are:

    Anders Jormin- Ad Lucem
    Dino Saluzzi & Anja Lechner - Ojos Negros
    Arve Henriksen - Cartography
    Paul Bley - Solo in Mondsee
    Ketil Bjornstad & Terje Rypdal - Live in Leipzig

    But of course, there many other great albums or songs that can give so much calm and energy, depending on your life's moods. Great label.

  • The Astounding Eyes Of Rita - Anouar Brahem
    Saltash Bells - John Surman
    Twelve Moons - Jan Garbarek
    Private City - John Surman
    Personal Mountains - Keith Jarrett

  • A year on and I'll add:

    Siwan - Jon Balke & Amina Alaoui
    In Praise of Dreams - Jan Garbarek & Kim Kashkashian

    The Cure (Jarrett, DeJohnette, Peacock)

    I cannot remember if this was my first ECM album, but many more did follow. It was given to me as a birthday present by a good friend and eventually it did get me hooked up on jazz and (to a lesser extend) contemporary music.Years later I managed to catch a live gig by the trio and it sent shiver down my spine. Unforgettable.

    Still love to listen to it.
