First ECM

  • First ECM

    What was the first ECM recording you ever heard and/or purchased? Here is mine...

  • Ralph Towner: Diary

    1978 I was fifteen, hated jazz, loved progressive rock. Came home from school to find that my brother had bought a new lp. Ralph Towner: Diary, with a minimalistic cover photo. Light blue sky, dark blue ocean, nothing more.
    I put the first side on, listened to the whole first side, and thought "What boring music is this?". I didn't care to listen to the second side.
    In the evening when my brother was home, he was in the basement at the stereo, while I was on the ground floor looking at television. I heard some music quiet in the background from the basement and thought it sounded interesting. I went down to him and asked about it and found out it was the same record that I had considered boring.
    The track was "The Silence of a Candle". I heard the whole track and found it was good. After many listenings the next day I went absolutely high on that piece. It played in my head for several whole schooldays.
    I learned to like the other tracks too, especially Ogden Road and Icarus. Later the others as well.
    This was my first entry into jazz, and I'm grateful for that ticket into the jazz world of experience.

Then my wife come in and asked me, what strange music I hear and why I am beating such a strange rhythms on my typewriter :-) At this moment I realized, I've got hypnotized from Keith. It was the beginning of a wonderful friendship ...
