So as I just found out per @billy bud shakespeare a lot of ECM stuff is now on steaming services so I suggest we'll make this into a general obscure and not-so-obscure ECM-recommendations thread 'cause I think that'd be cool. 

 

Bring 'em on!

I know keith jarrett's solo concerts get brought up a lot in these discussions but I'm a sucker for his organ work - hymns/spheres and invocations are both pretty amazing records imo
