The most important sound engineer for ECM, who recorded Terje Rypdal and many many others. The founder and owner of Rainbow Studio, Oslo. The "inventor" of a particularly pleasant type of sonic landscape, home of much great music.

To those who have any idea of recorded music history, all ya gotta say is: "ECM."
Either one swoons or recoils (admittedly dated thinking as matters have evolved, but still...)
Maybe one has to be of a certain age to "get it," but love it or hate it, it changed the musical world.
I can still clearly see old, dear friends absolutely enraptured as they talked about and spun those records.
It was so moving to witness that while I may not have been enjoying it, I would never dismiss it. I was sitting in
their church and paying respect was paramount.

RIP, sir!

That sonic landscape was one of a few important factors that also included at times absolutely fantastic musicians basically given free reign if they could do it in a short session. They were plenty of misses but when it came together it resulted in some fantastic records. Late 70s through the mid-80s was from a sort of golden era for ECM

Ah, ok, with you now.. I had a tape of Koln which I played all the time at one point... In fact I may dig it out for a listen.. probably 35 years since I heard it.

RIP. Great respect for his body of work. Him, Bruce Swedien and Steve Nye are my subjective faves.

If he had a hand in Terje's Odyssey 2 LP set, then he is certainly a friend of mine... RIP.

My vinyl was always strictly alphabetical then chronilogical except the ECM... all together in "E", then alphabetical then chronilogical. A strange thing to do, thinking about it, but the 80's was a pretty strange time all in all.

R.I.P. J.E.K.

I have genres labeled “Zappa” and another “ECM” because it just makes more sense to me then having some Zappa under classical etc.

Thanks to the FZ connection, I came to be introduced into the world of ECM by none other than L. Shankar's Who's to Know album. Mesmerising music - and boy can he play! Shocked

That’s an amazing album. He told me he practiced 20 hours a day leading up to the recording. Sounds crazy but he said it with a straight face.

The Epidemics featuring a drum machine as well as Steve Vai. Pretty sure it’s the worst ECM record in the catalog. When I mentioned it to Vai he was quite embarrassed that I brought it up.
