#ECM, a music label – #Jazz

Wiki says : ECM (Edition of Contemporary Music) is an independent record label founded by Manfred Eicher in Munich in 1969. While ECM is best known for jazz music, the label has released a variety of recordings, and ECM’s artists often refuse to acknowledge boundaries between genres. ECM’s motto is “the Most Beautiful Sound Next to Silence”.

You can YouTube it. If you like to read, I suggest you Google “ECM Best Albums“. This page is great, for example :

In a way, it’s always interesting to READ about intelligent music, right?
