More details have already been released about the special celebration of ECM Records:. Here's the label's own announcement:
ECM Records has documented progressive jazz like no other independent label, producing albums that have helped "change the course of recorded art," according to the Wall Street Journal. On January 15-16 at The New School's Tishman Auditorium, Winter Jazzfest 2016 will present two special all-ECM evenings featuring 13 acts. This is an unprecedented label showcase at Winter Jazzfest, which over the past decade has helped epitomize New York City as the place to experience the leading edge of jazz, for musicians, critics and fans alike.More details on the ECM lineups can be viewed below.
Performing material from their latest ECM releases in this showcase will be the Vijay Iyer Trio, Mark Turner Quartet, pianist David Virelles' ensemble Mbókò, pianist Craig Taborn solo and guitarist David Torn solo. The evenings will also feature artists unveiling material from new and imminent albums on the label, including the trio of Ches Smith, Craig Taborn & Mat Maneri, Avishai Cohen Quartet, Michael Formanek's Ensemble Kolossus and Ralph Alessi Quartet. There will be groups on the bill that have upcoming ECM recording sessions, too, such as the new Chris Potter Quartet, Theo Bleckmann's Elegy and the duo of Ethan Iverson & Mark Turner; and saxophonist Tim Berne will debut a new quintet, Sideshow. See below for the complete lineup.
Founded in Munich by lauded producer Manfred Eicher, ECM has always had a keen connection to the vital currents of jazz emanating from this side of the Atlantic. With the label's characteristically organic interactions and conceptual resonance to the fore, these two unmissable nights of performance at Winter Jazzfest will underscore the ever-robust, trans-Atlantic jazz vision of ECM. "For me, the source of jazz has always ultimately been America - New York City, especially," says Eicher. "Now there's a new generation of musicians in New York that is particularly interesting to me, so I'm happy that I'll be here again to see an exciting program featuring these artists - one that helps mark ECM's long connection to America and New York."
The full festival schedule is still TBA, but tickets for the whole festival and select individual shows are available.
UPDATE: Kamasi Washington was supposed to play Winter Jazzfest, but his show was rescheduled for February. All tickets (including Winter Jazzfest passes) will be honored.

DOWNLOAD: WHY? - "Jonathan's Hope" (MP3)
As posted before, WHY? are on tour now with Doseone, Serengeti, and DJ Thanksgiving Brown which hits NYC tonight (9/13) at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tonight's show is sold out but you'll have another chance to see them in October, because they've just added a NYC date to their upcoming tour with Naytronix (aka tUnE-yArDs bassist Nate Brenner), which kicks off about a month after their current tour ends. (They'll also be over in Europe in between the two North American tours.) The tour with Naytronix brings them back to Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 21 for a show with The Black Swans. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (9/14) at noon.
WHY? released the Sod in the Seed EP last month and are releasing their new full length album, Mumps, Etc., on on October 9 via Anticon. You can download Mumps, Etc. single, "Jonathan's Hope," above or stream it, along with the entire Sod in the Seed EP, plus check out the updated list of dates, below.

As mentioned previously, tUnE-yArDs bassist Nate Brenner has a solo project coming out under the name Naytronix and the album will be out October 9 via Plug Research. We've got the premiere of the band's new video "Don't Walk Away" which you can watch below. With its horn-filled arrangement, it's a catchy little number. There's also a stream of it too, along with the Yalls remix of the track.
Naytronix have also just been tapped to open for Why? for part of their upcoming tour, though not at the NYC stop at Music Hall of Williamsburg in September. Hopefully Naytronix will schedule a show here soon. Meanwhile, you can check out all announced Naytronix dates listed below, along with the video and song streams.

Merrill Garbus at World Financial Garden - 6/30/12
tUnE-yArDs mastermind Merrill Garbus teamed up with Roomful of Teeth, William Britelle and Judd Greenstein & The Yehudim on June 30 to kick off the indie/classical Ecstatic Summer concert series, which is part of the River to River festival and happens this summer at the World Financial Center. Merrill played both solo and with vocal group Roomful of Teeth, who also performed Merrill and William Britelle compositions at the show. Merrill's set included tUnE-yArDs songs including a new one called "Not Dead Yet." The Yehudim, who count Olga Bell as a member, opened the show (and that's why Olga couldn't be in Montauk with her new band Dirty Projectors that night. Olga has since played Music Hall and Prospect Park with the Projectors who she is now on tour with). Here are some pictures from the Ecstatic show.
The series of free shows continues this Saturday (7/14) with Oneohtrix Point Never, David Lang, and A Far Cry Orchestra. As mentioned, "The third show is on August 25 and will feature Brooklyn disco orchestra Escort collaborating with the equally large Darcy James Argue's Secret Society."
In other tUnE-yArDs news, bassist Nate Brenner also has a solo project called Naytronix, under which he will release his debut LP, Dirty Glow, on October 9 via Plug Research. That LP will be supported with a TBA fall tour, which includes MusicFestNW. The cover art, tracklist, and a video for the appropriately named track, "Robotic," are below, along with more pictures from the Ecstatic Summer show.
The 2012 edition of MusicFestNW takes place in September 5 - 9 at 18 venues in Portland, OR and will feature performances from over 150 bands, including Passion Pit, Hot Snakes, Girl Talk, Danny Brown, Beirut Silversun Pickups, Dinosaur Jr. and Sebadoh, many more.
In addition to those previously announced artists, MFNW has just added The Hives, Flying Lotus, Wild Nothing, DIIV, Quasi, Moon Duo, My Goodness, DZ Deathrays, and Strand Of Oaks to the already impressive line-up. Wristbands, available various levels and packages, and tickets to individual shows are on sale now. Check out the complete MFNW lineup below.
