Haunting solo work from Dollar Brand – recorded live in Copenhagen, with a sound that's full of tone, texture, and subtle beauty! Dollar Brand is one of the few players that can hold us rapt with a session like this – and as with his trio and larger group work, the tunes have an ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A really wonderful setting for the vibes of Gary Burton – a special ECM session that pairs his quartet with larger orchestral backdrops – all conducted by Michael Gibbs, who also wrote the music for the date! Gibbs had already risen to fame by the time of this record – thanks to ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An essential 2LP set that's just about the only vinyl release you can find that documents the work of the legendary (and short-lived) Circle group – an important avant jazz combo that featured Anthony Braxton, Chick Corea, Dave Holland, and Barry Altschul. The record captures a Parisian ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Jan Garbarek —
Dansere ... LP ECM, 1976. Used ....
Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the highlights of saxophonist Jan Garbarek at ECM – and a set that has him working with the well-matched lineup of Bobo Stenson on piano, Palle Danielsson on bass, and Jon Christensen on drums! The shape of the songs is a bit looser than before, but Garbarek and Stenson turn out to be ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Not a various artists collection, as you might guess from the cover – but a cool extended piece – with keyboards by Gruntz, plus percussion from Dom Um Romaeo, David Friedman, Pierre Favre, and Jack DeJohnette! Includes drums, cymbals, gongs, vibes, marimba, and more! ... (Jazz) LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl has a couple of marks that click a bit. Cover has a cutout notch and some stains on the back.)
A wonderful early 70s avant garde side, and one of our favorite ECM recordings. Dave Holland leads a group with Circle bandmates Anthony Braxton and Barry Altschul, adding reedist Sam Rivers to the mix, with whom Holland was also working extensively at the time. Rivers' emotive, flowing approach ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A beautiful large-concept album from Keith Jarrett – one that features his piano, the bass of Charlie Haden, and the tenor and soprano sax of Jan Garbarek as the main solo instruments over larger string orchestrations! There's a sense of excitement to the record right from the start – ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The best Keith Jarrett spirit of the 70s – those long, exploratory lines he virtually invented on solo piano – performed here by pianist Dennis Russell Davies! The set's one of the warmest we've ever heard from Davies – as he spins out on two side-long interpretations of this ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Steve Kuhn —
Trance ... LP ECM, 1975. Used ....
Temporarily Out Of Stock
Trance. The title's a great one, as Kuhn spins out some long-spiralling tracks that really have a compellingly rhythmic groove. The main focus here is on his keyboards – both electric and acoustic piano – and he's working with well matched players that include Steve Swallow on ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A brilliantly evocative album from Pat Metheny – one that's got a quietly epic feel, as Pat and group soar out across the American landscape in a set of tunes that subtly explore space and sound while still remaining wonderfully fluid. There's nothing forced here, and nothing too slick ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of our favorite Metheny moments ever – and one of the few albums of his that we can go back to, and still enjoy heartily! The album's wonderfully stripped down – and features only guitar by Metheny, keyboards by Lyle Mays, and percussion and vocals by Nana Vasconcelos, all blended ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Arguably the last great album to come from the classic Pat Metheny collaboration with Lyle Mays – a record that's tightened up considerably from some of the group's earlier efforts, but which gives as its reward some wonderfully compelling tunes! Pat's still very much influenced here by a ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A really wonderful little record from Pat Metheny – quite possibly our favorite by the man, thanks to some really inventive sounds that still resonate strongly in the groove scene today! Pat's skirting nicely here between the sound-based quality of earlier records, and some of the more fluid ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Pat Metheny —

Temporarily Out Of Stock
A live album, but every bit as seminal as the studio sides that Pat Metheny cut for ECM at the time – and proof that the Metheny magic was clearly his own, and not just a product of studio tricks by Manfred Eicher! The set reprises tunes and themes from a variety of Metheny's earlier ECM ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Pat Metheny/Ornette Coleman —
Song X ... LP ECM, 1986. Used ....
Out Of Stock
At the height of his success, Pat tries to prove to the world that he's still got cred – and hooks up with Ornette, Charlie Haden, and Denardo Coleman for a little bit of harmelodic jamming. Thing is, we actually liked the slick stuff better! Titles include "Mob Job", "Video ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Paul Motian didn't always record that much as a leader, but the dates under his own name are always compelling ones – and quite a change from his more famous work with Bill Evans! This set is a sparkling showcase of original tunes by Motian – played by a shifting array of players that ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Second ECM recording of Ornette Coleman alums, once again playing a handful of newer tunes as well as Coleman repertoire. Don Cherry's on trumpet and piano, Dewey Redman on tenor sax & musette, Charlie Haden on bass and Ed Blackwell on drums. While Coleman was delving into full-on electric ...

Julian Priester (Pepo Mtoto) —
Love, Love ... LP ECM, 1974. Used ....
Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent bit of spacey funk from Julian Priester – the Chicago hardbop trombonist who grooved mightily in the late 50s and early 60s with the likes of Sun Ra and Max Roach, but who here is reemerging as a 70s electric funk maestro, in the lineage of Herbie Hancock. Here, he's working ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A beautifully avant session from ECM – and a great late 70s showcase for the reed talents of the great Sam Rivers! The album's got a mixture of focus and freedom that makes it one of Sam's best from this period – a group outing that features Rivers on tenor, soprano, and flute – ...

An ECM power trio set from the late 70s – served up with a sound that's very much the sum of its three great parts! Terje Rypdal's guitar work is as enigmatic as ever – sharp-toned, and spinning out in really spacey, spooky ways – and Miroslav Vitous plays bass just like we like ...

Two players with a very spacious sense of sound – coming together here in an all-guitar album that mixes both electric and acoustic tones! The pairing is perfectly captured by the ECM production style – an approach that lets each note ring out with a great sense of presence, and blend ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A real classic from bassist Miroslav Vitous – and a record that sets up his sound with a great combination of warm tones and sharp edges! Vitous plays a deep-voiced acoustic bass all the way through – and gets some excellent accompaniment from pianist Kenny Kirkland, who adds in some ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
