Japanese ECM Catalog now available

The ECM webshop now has available for sale copies of the Japanese ECM catalogue edited by Kenny Inaoka and published by Yasuo Nakamura for Kawade Shobo Shinsha / Tokyo Kirara-sha. This remarkable handbook of almost 700 pages, originally conceived to accompany ECM’s 40th year celebrations, includes all of the officially released albums issued on ECM - and its subsidiary JAPO - from 1969 until 2010. Album covers are shown in colour (sometimes with alternate designs), and there is a section of Japan-only releases alongside the full international range of titles, as well as an individual album guide and capsule reviews in Japanese. All discographical information, including titles, musicians, recording locations, etc is in English, so the book will also be useful reference work for the non-Japanese reader/listener, and for collectors in general.

Catalogue editor Kenny Inaoka, currently editor-in-chief of the Jazz Tokyo web site, was ECM’s label manager in Japan in the 1970s and 1980s, working with Trio Records.
