Villalobos And Loderbauer Rework ECM Archive

Ricardo Villalobos and Max Loderbauer are releasing a 2CD collection of reworked archive material from ECM's enormous back catalogue. The release, entitled Re:ECM, sees Villalobos and Loderbauer rework 17 tracks from the archive they were given free reign to plunder by label founder Manfred Eicher.

Villalobos and Loderbauer worked together on compositions by ECM composers and artists including tracks from The Zoo Is Far and Fabula Suite Lugano by the Christian Wallumrød Ensemble; Svete Tikhiy and Blazhenstva by Alexander Knaifel, and tracks from Bennie Maupin, Paul Giger, Miroslav Vitous, John Abercrombie, Wolfert Brederode Quartet and Enrico Rava. Re:ECM is released by ECM on 20 June.
