I haven't read in this forum about anyone listening to some european avangarde/jazz music so this is the ECM page:

This label is famous sinethe 70 for hosting Keith Jarrett (I think there is no need for introductions) but also a number of independent jazz and avantgarde - mostly european - composers. This is for AUDIOPHILES the lable takes the matter of sound quality very very seriously!!! Also the covers are really cool.

You can listen to some samples.

The first artist I present is:

Jan Garbarek - norvegian sax player (not all albums are grate) but this are interesting:

OFFICIUM (recorded in a medieval church in Norway with 4 Gregorian voices and the sax as a 5th voice - the music is from 1200 scripts mostly spanish)

No downloads at this site. I thought to post some composers on with albums I like and have as originals. The music is really unique so you can find things you hate (there is a lot of stuff I just can't hear as they don't have just jazz but modern contemporary music, weird combinations of instrumental music and so on).
But the label is a cult in Europe so, I have something like 10 CDs not more.

I anyone is interesed I will upload it, as I have never done this I'll ask someone to tell me where.

As for the streaming just the new editions have the options to stream most of the songs for a few minutes.

JAN GARBAREK - OFFICIUM

A review from the critics:

"What is this music?" Fundamentally, it's an exploration of what happens when an improvisatory instrumental voice (saxophone) is placed into the world of early vocal music, which has elements of both improvisation and formal structure. In reality, it's an adventure in which the four male voices of the Hilliard Ensemble travel the 14th- and 15th-century territory of Morales and Dufay, visit the 12th century of Perotin, and roam even earlier ages of plainchant, accompanied by the always sensitive and tasteful, often astonishing, saxophone improvisations of jazz master Jan Garbarek. Sometimes, these new melodies simply accompany; sometimes they transform the common--a routine minor chord, for instance--into a sublime, indescribable moment. The answer to the above question is easy, but it's different for each listener. --David Vernier

The next album:

JAN GARBAREK - DIS

A sax + giutar duo (with Ralph Towner) and you can hear a weird sound in the back, this is a wind Harp played by the wind itself.

Wery strange and mystical music indead.

"The ECM sound" sometimes gets a bad rap as being overly "clean", spare, and almost proto-new age -- which is a huge overgeneralization, though, to be fair, they definitely do have a very identifiable aesthetic to a lot of their albums. But hey, so did Blue Note. Some of their earlier releases are mindblowing, though. I think ECM's best-selling title was Jarrett's solo piano monster, The Koln Concert.

My favorite, hands down, is Julian Priester's Love Love. Anyone into early 70's Herbie Hancock needs to hear this -- Priester was in Herbie's Mwandishi band, and the influence here is pretty clear. Massive, oceanic, cosmic space jazz for the soul.

edit: if you're curious:

I agree that there is maybe an "overproduction" I also like the rough sounds made "on the spot", this is why I love the live music.
The sound of ECM is "cold" to me ... kinda "autumn" music.

But then again there is something interesting to me about some artists.

Rolf Lislevand
CD "Nuove musiche"


This is another artist which bring us renaissance music from Italy and France, mainly for antique strings instruments! As we know there is no written music from the medieval /reneissance period, for written music came later on. Infact there have been discovered some kind of written music but no one have figured out yet how the "notes" have to be read. So, here You have the this CD with a interpretation about as close as of the "improvised medieval music". My favourite tune "Passacaglia celtica".
No worry here this have notthing to do with new age ... all the music is strictly acoustic. On the other hand it is not a strict classical albun either.

Another ECM artist is Keith Jarrett.

I love his trio which is a piano acoustic trio:
Keith Jarrett (p)
Gary Peackock (b)
John Dejohnette (d)

On my opinion this is the best piano trio after the Bill Evans first piano trio with LaFaro on bass.

Take a listen to the Live at Blu Note:
