In this final Jazz Legacies conversation of the semester, Gary Giddins speaks with producer Manfred Eicher about his label’s impressive four decade run at the forefront of jazz. Manfred Eicher founded ECM Records in 1969 and established an early reputation with standard-setting recordings by Keith Jarrett, Paul Bley, Jan Garbarek, Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, and others. ECM, with Eicher consistently at the helm, has now issued over a thousand albums.
