ECM: Between the Lines

On June 4, 2018, WKCR DJ Andrew Castillo and I presented an encore of sorts to our 15-hour traversal of the entire ECM catalog. Under the theme “Between the Lines,” I curated a playlist of world music and folk-leaning tracks that explore yet another major facet of the label’s output. The episode is now available to listen by clicking the PLAY button below. You may also download the full episode by clicking here. Scroll down for a full playlist, including links to my reviews of each album:
