ECM’s Begins :rarum Artist Series

Get set for something rare in the recording industry: ECM’s :rarum anthology project. This series of CDs gives artists a chance to collect tracks from their own ECM albums and release them together as compilation of favorites. It’s about what the artists want you to hear and how you should hear it; they have free reign over track selection and sequencing, they write their own liner notes and provide their own photos.

The first batch of eight :rarum discs will be released on May 21 and will include collections by Keith Jarrett, Jan Garbarek, Chick Corea, Gary Burton, Bill Frisell, the Art Ensemble of Chicago, Terje Rypdal, and Bobo Stenson.
