[JPL] Answer to the ECM question

Hi Jae and all,

>From ECM:

"The silence at the beginning of the first track arrived on ECM CDs in
1992, courtesy of Karlheinz Stockhausen. When we sent him the first
test-CDs of his "Michaels Reise" he complained that he didn't have
enough time, after pressing the 'play' button, to get to his favourite
armchair before the music started. Thinking about it, we felt he had a
point, that the listener should at least have time to take a breath and
get ready for the journey into the music...     

The preparatory silence has been part of the discs ever since."


Best,

Mark

I certainly understand this concept of delay in live performance but on
disc......particularly if you segue into the first ECM track and not
remembering the delay is there - can certainly make it sound like something
went wrong.

ECM cds have sent me quickly scanning the board to see what button I didn't 
have pushed. ECM is the only one that has this delay and to confuse 
things 
even more, every so often, a ECM cd will not have the delay. I'm always 
prepared, and will hit the play button early, but you never know how early. 
I too would love to know why they do this. I am sure it is intentional. 
But why?

Some of us who remember vinyl still cue-up a CD...in the real sense: 
actually hearing the first couple of seconds. It's good practice, anyway,
because of 
labeling inconsistencies (sometimes a brief inter-music narrative is 
enumerated, sometimes not).

MTO Volume 1 is the debut album from Steven Bernstein's Millennial Territory
Orchestra. The nine-piece outfit features some of Gotham's most original
musical voices, wicked and well-traveled improvisers who tear into and savor
Bernstein's arrangements like the tangiest Kansas City barbecue. The
selection of tunes includes classic '20s fare (Charlie Johnson's ''Boy in
the Boat,'' Bennie Moten's ''Toby'') and the kind of contemporary pop and
R&B hits (Prince's ''Darling Nikki,'' Stevie Wonder's ''Signed, Sealed,
Delivered'') that have long been part of Bernstein's repertoire. The
vibrancy of the playing, the wit and sass of the arrangements, uncovers the
genetic code that makes Bennie Moten and Prince funk-soul brothers of the
first order. All this, without once conjuring the snoot of academe or
dreaded notions of ''post-modern jazz.''

The Millennial Territory Orchestra is: Steven Bernstein (trumpet, slide
trumpet), Ben Allison (bass) Peter Apfelbaum (tenor) Charlie Burnham
(violin) Clark Gayton (trombone), Erik Lawrence (baritone, soprano) Matt
Munisteri (guitar, banjo, vocal), Ben Perowsky (drums) Doug Wieselman
(clarinet, tenor saxophone) and special guest Doug Wamble (guitar, vocal) on
''Signed, Sealed & Delivered''

IN STORES 8/1.

AT RADIO...right...about.....now. Got it? Hope so.
