    My way would be

    Tag Album Artist as Keith Jarrett;Jan Garbarek,
    Tag Artist as Keith Jarrett & Jan Garbarek

    My example is always B.B. King & Eric Clapton, Riding with the King

    You then get the album listed under both artists in "Artists" but the Now Playing Screen will show "Track by B.B. King & Eric Clapton"

    In the past I have always done that, i.e. used ";" without using any a space character before the second artist.

    However, I have recently done a test which indicated that leading and trailing space characters are stripped from the individual artists before the data is written to the database. The same thing seems to occur with the genre tag when there are multiple genres separated by ";".

    For test purposes I including a leaded and a trailing space in an artist tag on one album: "Osborne ; Volkov ; BBC SSO". All three of these 'contributors' occur in many other albums and tracks, without any leading or trailing space characters. After re-scanning and checking in the "contributors" table (in library.db) there were only single entries for "Osborne", "Volkov" and "BBC SSO", without any leading or trailing spaces.

    If you're using flac you don't need any seperator like ; or ,. Just generate multiple ARTIST or ALBUMARTIST Tags in your tagging Software. If you're using Mp3Tag you could use \\ to get multiple Tags. I think this is the standard for flac. I don't know if It's working with mp3.

    Why is using \\ easier than using ; ?

    ; is just something you can define in LMS. Using multiple Tags is a standard for Flac and should work in any Software. Forget about the \\ if you're not using Mp3Tag. It's not a seperator like the ; that you have to define in LMS. \\ is a shortcut in Mp3Tag to produce multiple Tags.

    My ripping software is from 2009 and does not support multiple tags for the same attribute. I guess it's time to find a new software for my mac...? )

    Well, the first two rippers I tested do not support multiple tags for artists. At least not in any obvious way. Much appreciated, if somebody could point to a ripper for macOS with this feature. Thanks!

    I tested: xld (xld-20170729) and fre:ac (freac-1.1-alpha-20170902-macosx, formerly known as boncenc)

    You dont have to do it with the ripper , use a tag editor like mp3tag or puddletag to adjust the tags after the rip.

    It's easiest, if I do this with the ripper. Only one tool/UI and up to know, Max (on macOS) was perfect )

    Your proposed editors mp3tag and puddletag have no native macOS support. Setting up Wine for mp3tag or compiling puddletag myself is probably not worth the effort. I keep on using LMS' ";" feature.

    Thanks anyway! )

    In Max simply try tagging the Artist name as Artist1;Artist2 - LMS should read this as multiple tags - assuming you have left ; as the separator and insert into the database accordingly. If you use other media players as well then they may misread but ....
