ECM to Release Garbarek & Rypdal Boxed Sets
Classic albums have been out of print
ECM will release two new boxed sets in its Old & New Masters reissue series, featuring musicians associated with the label from the outset. Jan Garbarek’s three-CD Dansere box contains the saxophonist/flutist’s collaborations with pianist Bobo Stenson: Sart (1971), Witchi-Tai To (1973) and Dansere (1975), all of which have been out of print in recent years.
Terje Rypdal’s three-disc Odyssey: In Studio & In Concert includes the complete Odyssey album (1975), released on CD for the first time and restoring the long track “Rolling Stone” to its rightful place), but also a full disc of previously unreleased material on which Rypdal’s Odyssey band is augmented by the Swedish Radio Jazz Group in a 1976 live performance of Rypdal’s suite “Unfinished Highballs.”
