    I posted this clip in another thread for while ago, but this song is a beautiful and melancholic standard.

    Have I found it yet? I said that but I didn’t knew it. Did I knew that I had found it yet? No, it wasn’t what I was looking for. Nevermind. Ok.

    Otherwise I recommend you anything released by ECM Records.

    Sorry! Something went wrong!

    "Goodbye" by Gordon Jenkins. He wrote it after his wife and child died during childbirth.



    Several guitarists have covered it (see versions by Johnny Smith and Chuck Wayne in particular).

    Autumn In New York is a candidate, maybe not the darkest (dark enough btw, ending on Fminor6) but surely one of the deepest.

    Well, not exactly slow and also not jazz, but the performance is introspective, worth to listen

    That's a desert Island disc for me. And Kenny Wheeler's "Angel Song."

    Re: Slow and Introspective, check out a record by Lee Konitz called "Poets of Jazz," and a record by Warne Marsh called "A ballad Album."

    You can make anything sad and slow and introspective, really. Konitz's dirge slow take on "All of Me" on the first record I mentioned will forever change the way you hear that one.

    I found that an interesting suggestion. Some of my all-time favorite songs performed by Gary Burton, and I've got a few, were on ECM. ' Dreams So Real ', Mevlivia ( Sp.? ).
    Was this an intentional focus of that label ?

    Thx.

    ECM Records is a very unique label in contemporary music business. No label will ever beat them in terms of aesthetic quality and artistic production, not even Deutsche Grammophon or Blue Note Records. ”Dark, introspective, slow” are adjectives I’m generally associating with the ECM sound. Heavy plate reverb combined with classical and traditional folk music harmonies really defines this beautiful soundscape. It’s ”there”, no matter what recording you’re listening to. Manfred Eicher is a genius.

    Another favorite I’ve not mentioned yet is this Emily Remler recording below. A masterpiece!

    Here's a couple of my favorites:





    There's a great version of Deep Song on Alexander Claffy's "Standards: What Are you Doing For the Rest Of Your Life?", blending Kurt Rosenwinkel's arrangement with vocals by Veronica Swift.

    aesthetic is an hard theme.
    And probably you don’t know on what you’re talking about.
    I disagree with you, I don’t like at all ecm and i don’t recommend to listen any of those album

    Listing the probably most iconic three jazz legends of an era then continuing with himself... wow.
    If I try to come up with a name I can not figure out anyone who fits as the fourth, especially not by self promotion.


    (Larry Coryell: Monk, Trane, Miles & Me),
    btw the referred Alone Together is surprisingly enjoyable.

    I was about to arguing a bit with Bbmaj7#5#9 unconditional love with ECM, but reading your statements as a reply to Bbmaj7#5#9, now I am finding myself in the ECM defending side...

    Although I agree with you about aesthetics is a hard theme, I found your statements a bit harsh.
    ECM was who released Bright Size Life 43 years ago which is now part of the jazz legacy. Also countless Keith Jarrett recordings belongs to ECM. Charlie Haden, Paul Motian, Billy Higgins, Jack DeJohnette, Dewey Redman, Michael Brecker, Chick Corea also on your ignored and not recommended listening list.

    (Not talking about the classical recordings, especially András Schiff many Bach and Beethoven live recordings. In case anyone interested in Bach and knows Gould’s recordings, try to listen Schiff on ECM at least a few times, maybe will found it’s a new cornerstone. And also it is not dark, much more light compared to Gould)

    Back to the dark. I do not think all ECM is dark, for example Rejoicing
    Well, there are hundreds of ECM recordings featuring less known musicians, I always think those recordings as cold, and not dark or sad, which does not fits for me. I accept sadness, and joy in any music, but not coldness, and I feel it, like this is a driving attribute when ECM picks less known artists.

    Cindy Walker wrote all sorts of songs, and a lot of them, many for Bob Wills. Going Away Party is one of the lost love songs, which seem to dominate country music.

    Hey, I wouldn't have posted Alone Together if it wasn't one of Coryell's best recordings (ha ha).

    But yea, I enjoy this album and what I feel is a more "mature" (maybe refined is better?), playing by Larry.
