Rose Theater 2019-2020 season

ECM Records at 50

With Jack DeJohnette, Vijay Iyer, and more

What To Expect

  • An all-star lineup of groundbreaking artists in contemporary creative and improvised music

Tonight we celebrate 50 years of the monumentally influential ECM Records, rightfully called “one of the defining sound-worlds of the past half-century of recorded music” by the New Yorker.

The show includes an outstanding lineup of performers, including Jack DeJohnette, Joe Lovano, Craig Taborn, Vijay IyerAvishai Cohen, Meredith Monk, Ravi ColtraneBill FrisellLarry GrenadierWadada Leo SmithAnja LechnerEthan Iverson, Nik Bartsch, Enrico Rava, and Egberto Gismonti. These are some of the most respected and ambitious figures in contemporary creative and improvised music, and their close association with the prestigious record label is no coincidence.

An independent label founded by visionary producer Manfred Eicher, ECM selects extraordinary artists and provides them with the freedom and support to create something truly special.

More than half of the artists performing tonight have appeared as Jazz at Lincoln Center headliners on their own merits, and tonight we have the rare opportunity to witness them perform on one stage. This 50-year anniversary celebration will be a proper salute to a record label that, with an unwavering commitment to quality, has contributed so uniquely and extensively to contemporary music.
