Yesterday we went to ECM Headquarters in Munich, met the Boss and shopped for some good records. Unbelievable that Manfred Eicher is doing his business nearly on the same activity level than in his younger years. We asked for Keith Jarret ´s health condition and he said he is getting better. Wish him all the best.
Oded Tsur is one of Manfred´s favourites at the moment. We share his assessment. You see three of Tsur´s last CDs on the 1st image. Just remarkable!
At the evening we went to Jonathan Kreisberg´s first concert since two years at Munich´s Unterfahrt. He came with his new band. Julian Lage had been here some days ago, we will see him on July´s 30th at the Village Vanguard. Jonathan is an exceptional guitarist, I do recommend his live CD.
