Recommendations so far from the ECM catalog

John Abercrombie - Gateway 1 & 2
Pat Methany - Bright Size Life
Gary Burton & Chick Corea
Dave Holland Quartet - Conference Of The Birds
I fell head over heels for Jan Garbarek's Dancere the other month. Beautiful stuff.

Re. ECM. I dug out Steve Kuhn / Sheila Jordan Band - Playground the other night. Great album. Love her voice and phrasing. Players do a great job too. Also love Keith Jarrett - The Survivors Suite on ECM.

Also picked up Joe Henderson/Alice Colrane - The Elements, and Steve Grossman - Some Shapes To Come. Both incredible. Must have for fans of 70's jazz / fusion / cosmic

I noticed yesterday that Don Cherry performed and made a recording with Terry Riley. (which is maybe only half jazz then)

I've never been able to get into him. Always feels too clinical, almost like if you made a computer program that machine learned ECM albums and then made one of its own.

re the 'lost' coltrane album, i get the hype but it wouldn't surprise me if there were loads more waiting to be 'discovered'. thinking of e.g. stellar regions which was recorded in '67 but only came out in '95.

i do wonder if it was really his intention to add another
earnest studio effort aimed at distilling the band’s live ethic
to his catalogue, or if the truth is somewhat more prosaic, less premeditated than that quote suggests, like johnny hartman got his dates wrong or had a personal emergency or needed to rest his voice, and coltrane's band found themselves in the studio with time and tunes to burn. given the rate at which coltrane could spew out classics in a day (e.g. stellar regions was recorded on 15th february 1967, interstellar space exactly a week later), the latter scenario could be closer to the truth.

side note: the coltrane/hartman album will apparently get you laid: Six of the Best: John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman
