TT 30: Sarah's GRAVITY, ECM at 50

"GRAVITY comes out Nov 12 from Make Me a World/Random House. It’s already gotten four starred reviews and was named one of Publisher’s Weekly Best Books of 2019. At the launch, I'll be having a conversation with the great boxing analyst Steve Farhood.” — Sarah Deming

On Friday and Saturday I’ll be joining Mark Turner for a duo performance at JALC celebrating 50 Years of ECM. Many great musicians will be onstage that night. Ben Street gave me an ECM T-shirt so I know what to wear.

A while back I wrote up 50 favorite ECM tracks. Such a fabulous catalog!


Fresh edits on DTM:

The “American standards” teaching post is updated with comments by Branford Marsalis and Mike Kanan.

The Robert Dennis interview has a tighter introduction.

I’ve been listening to Aribert Reimann and Thomas Adés again recently, so it was time to refresh my post on two beloved concertos.
