Echoes Playlist
In the 1970s, someone dubbed ECM Records "the most beautiful sound next to silence." No one has fulfilled that ideal more than Anja Lechner and Vasillis Tsabropoulos with their album CHANTS, HYMNS AND DANCES (ECM). Lechner is the German cellist with the Rosamunde Quartet and the Greek born Tsabropoulos has several jazz trio albums out. On CHANTS, HYMNS & DANCES they adapt the music of Armenian mystic G.I. Gurdjieff and Thomas de Hartmann in a series of serene improvisations that will have you redefining your concepts of beauty. It's our Echoes CD of the Month for December.
