For years, fans have been begging for ECM's catalog on major streaming services like Spotify and Google Play. Until today, ECM has refused to release their albums online. Instead, consumers had to hand-select each gem and order a physical copy (the old-fashioned way). This of course was a strategic business decision for ECM. However, ECM management has finally given in. With this move, the coffin of CD sales has been eternally nailed shut. ECM was perhaps the largest jazz label holding out against the online streaming industry - and it's no wonder.
