    I really enjoy John Abercrombie, as well as '70s ECM releases, as well as guitar trio recordings. Checking all three boxes here.

    I started with "Gateway II" which I found very enjoyable, slightly drum-forward trio record with some inventive improvisational moments. By comparison, this album is more bass-forward, a little more jammy and loose, with less sophistication than II. Make no mistake, these are three masters at work making creative soundscapes.

    The recording is clean, with a decent mix. Side B sounds a bit bright, emphasis on 6KHz and up.

    I was lucky to find a sealed copy. I'd start with #2 and work your way back. 3.5 stars.

      I believe this to be some of the most explosive, energetic and original jazz on the entire ecm label... I dig it! Feel free to leave suggestions for similar sounding albums, thanks.

        LP: ECM 1061 ST (Germany) - What ist the difference between these Vinyl editions John Abercrombie, Dave Holland, Jack DeJohnette - Gateway vs. John Abercrombie, Dave Holland, Jack DeJohnette - Gateway (Blue Label seems green).
        In my Collection i've a Version with a silvery sticker "2301 061 ECM 1061" at the cover, placed where the Label is printed.
        Is this a different version?
        The rest ist equal to these two versions.
        Thx for an answer.

          Elements of "Sorcery I" feature prominently in "Durian" by the Cinematic Orchestra from their LP The Cinematic Orchestra - Motion
