ECM 40th anniversary catalog
Kenny Inaoka

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.

Simple Music for Piano
Giya Kancheli

First released in Georgian and Russian editions in 2009, this collection of "sketches" reprises pieces which Giya Kancheli wrote for film and theatre while concurrently embarking on his work as composer of symphonic and chamber music: "No wonder then, that certain themes originally intended for plays and films made their way into my larger works or that the large forms themselves sometimes contained episodes reminiscent of incidental music."

In his introduction Kancheli writes that "The simplicity of presentation does not preclude but rather encourages freedom of interpretation, particularly for those with a gift for improvising", an observation already emphasized in an outstanding recording based on these pieces, "Themes from the Songbook".

This volume includes Kancheli music from 33 films and plays, plus short texts by theatre director Robert Sturua, film directors Georgi Danelia and Eldar Shengelaya, and painter/writer/director Rezo Gabriadze (whose drawings are also scattered through the book). Text: English.
