Whiplash to La La Land is a big leap by the same director each sharing, in broad terms, jazz as a theme. UK release in cinemas is 13 January 2017. 

 

Albums by Theo Bleckmann (Elegy), John Abercrombie (Up and Coming), Colin Vallon (Danse) and Benedikt Jahnel (The Invariant) are among the new releases scheduled for early-2017 from ECM.

Issuing dates in January vary.

The long, potentially illuminating, build toward late-2019, when the label turns 50, begins surely in earnest.
