I just want to give public props to Robert Baird for his wonderful interview with Manfred Eicher. Eicher and ECM have brought me so much of the music that means the most to me. Eicher's taste in music has literaly changed my life. Great choice for an interview Robert, and well done!
I fully agree and I appreciate a glimpse into the character of the owner and what drives him to do what he does. It is a great label and sonically one of my all time favorites. I doubt they have ever made a bad recording. If you want to know how good redbook can be, their work is a great example.
I too will pass a compliment. When I first saw the article, it was my intent simply to glance at it as my first priority is usually the gear. However, I just kept reading. This man is totally obsessed. We are the beneficiaries of his obsession. It is hard for regular folk to understand this type of personality, but the article was written in such a way that it gave a glimpse. I thought that was excellent. Thanks.
Outstanding interview! I would like to read more about these great individuals who truly make the 'magic' happen.
IMO, ECM always = great music/great recordings.
Found out this one was recorded with a MH ULN-8. JA uses the
Well, it's taken me awhile, but I must add my kudos for the Manfred Eicher interview as well!
