Over the past year I've discovered so many great albums released by ECM Records. I realized at some point that I had overlooked almost all albums released under the label, even though I was long familiar with many of the artists who've recorded with them, at least from back in the 70s/80s. Since then it had been a fruitful and rewarding experience. At times it feels like it's own genre. It's not always music I would label as "jazz" as some of the music goes beyond genre labels.

What are your favorites from the label?

I think most of us know these albums, these are some of the most popular albums from the label.

Found it, it was hidden because we had to get rid of the mp3s.

That is why I started this one, but I'll head over to the other thread and see what's going on.

I really like some ECM early releases, when they were most adventurous ever in label's history, like Jan Garbarek Afric Pepperbird

 JAN GARBAREK - Afric Pepperbird cover


80s and 90s were too much "ambient/new age" period for label as for my taste, in a new Millennium they returned back  with some more adventurous works, partially from new NYC avantgarde jazz artists as Tim Berne or Michael Formanek.

TIM BERNE - Snakeoil cover
