Michael Tucker “ECM at 50”
The English jazz critic and writer Michael Tucker has covered the Ystad Sweden Jazz Festival for Jazz Journal for many years. A specialist in the music of ECM, his book Jan Garbarek: Deep Song (Eastnote/University of Hull Press) was called ”the bible of Garbarek studies” by Norway’s NRK MusicMagazine. He organised the month-long festival ECM: Selected Signs at the University of Brighton in 1999, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the label. He wrote the essay ’Northbound: ECM and the Idea of North’ for the definitive publication on ECM, Horizons Touched: The Music of ECM (Granta Books, 2007).
The presentation will be in English.
