ECM Records & The History Of European Jazz

In the decades of the 60s and 70s, European record labels kept American jazz musicians’ careers and avant-garde sound alive on vinyl, when all the American labels were restricting their investment to the more marketable area of electric jazz, jazz-rock, and outright fusion. The German label ECM, founded in 1969, is the major success story in this unwritten chapter of the history of jazz. In 50 years of intense commitment to all aspects of production, the label changed the image of jazz, its definition and boundaries. Mostly associated with ’Northern European’ sound, ECM has been since the very beginning issuing some of the most important recordings of American, African-American, and European jazz. By supporting musicians, exploring the intersections between visual art and sound, documenting new areas of composed music, and offering new talents a way to reach to the people, ECM served as an example for new labels that began to document nu-jazz in the 90s. In this talk, the significant moments of its history will be discussed with the participation of Francesco Martinelli, Sevin Okyay and Kerim Selçuk.
