ECM 1403

von: Michael Engelbrecht Filed under: Blog | TB | Comments off

Whatever the story of this album, whose number includes my birthday, and which is currently even available on vinyl – this is an ECM production of improvisors  that completely passed me by, and I have no idea why. One violin and three percussion players, promising, the names speak volumes anyway – and the facts that the oddly titled work combines two widely separated sessions, involving two of the label’s top sound engineers, quite unusual. Part of the answer, this is Shankar‘s last album for the label. Some art, some business, left unfinished.
