    Things Are Getting Better

    This title provides ample evidence why Cannonball Adderley (alto sax) is considered one of the masters of his craft. Here he joins forces with Modern Jazz Quartet co-founder Milt Jackson (vibes) to create a variety of sonic atmospheres. They are backed by the all-star ensemble of Wynton Kelly (piano), Percy Heath (bass), and the one and only Art Blakey (drums).


    The moody Blues Oriental opens the set with Jackson immediately diving in with his trademark fluid runs and shimmering intonation. Adderley counters with a light and lively line that weaves between the rhythm section. The optimistic Things Are Getting Better is a good-natured romp as the co-leads trade and cajole each other into some downright rollicking exchanges. This directly contrasts with the sultry Serves Me Right, which allows the combo members to demonstrate their collective musical malleability. The interaction between Adderley and Jackson sparkles as they entwine their respective playing with an uncanny singularity of spirit. The cover of Dizzy Gillespie's Groovin' High contains another spirited performance with some thoroughly engaging improvisation, especially during Adderley's voracious solos. Sidewalks of New York bops freely as Jackson unleashes some sublime licks against a hearty and equally boisterous sax. Adderley's Sounds for Sid demonstrates his uncanny ability to swing with a strong R&B vibe. With drop-dead timing and profound instrumental chops, this cut is undoubtedly one of the best from Adderley's earliest canon. The album concludes with a jumping reading of Cole Porter's Just One of Those Things.

    Porgy And Bess

    On their second conceptual album together, Miles Davis and arranger Gil Evans offered up a profound reinterpretation of George Gershwin's famed opera Porgy and Bess. A landmark release in orchestral jazz and arguably the best of their many collaborations, Evans' adaptation of Gershwin's score here is a veritable tour de force and although the outing features strong performances from Cannonball Adderley (alto sax), Paul Chambers (bass) and Jimmy Cobb (drums), Davis' poignant trumpet playing is the unequivocal star. Transcendent material like Summertime and I Love You Porgy display the true beauty of Miles Davis and Gil Evans' collective genius, their ability to reach the listener on not only a musical level but an emotional one as well.

    Things Are Getting Better

    If you ever needed proof that altoist Cannonball Adderley deserves to be considered one of the absolute masters of the jazz idiom, look no further than
    Things Are Getting Better, which provides ample evidence for his canonical stature. On this date, Adderley teams up with Modern Jazz Quartet cofounder
    and vibraphonist extraordinaire Milt Jackson to create a lively, varied set of sonic atmospheres. They are backed by the all-star ensemble of
    Wynton Kelly on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and the legendary Art Blakey on drums. The standout track, Sounds for Sid, finds Adderley grooving hard
    with an R&B flavor, flashing his virtuosic instrumental chops, and demonstrating in the process why this cut stands as one of the very best representations
    of Adderley's early work. Essential listening for all manner of jazz enthusiasts, Things Are Getting Better has something for everyone and deserves a
    place in every self-respecting jazz fan's vinyl collection.

    In New York

    An exceedingly excellent live date from the legendary Village Vanguard, In New York captures the recording debut of the Adderley Sextet and finds
    Cannonball gliding through seven tunes with swinging ease on alto saxophone. Joined by brother Nat on cornet, and the versatile Yusef Lateef on tenor,
    flute, and oboe, Cannonball and his crew turn in what All About Jazz calls perhaps the single most indispensable recording by the Adderley Brothers. In
    New York is also the first recorded appearance of pianist Joe Zawinul who would go on to jazz prominence as a pioneer of the jazz-fusion genre and a
    founding member of the seminal group Weather Report. This special vinyl reissue is a must-have for fans of straight-ahead, classic jazz with an
    adventurous twist.

    Original Album + Bonus Tracks

    Julian Edwin "Cannonball" Adderley (September 15, 1928 - August 8, 1975) was a jazz alto saxophonist of the hard bop era of the 1950s and 1960s. Adderley is remembered for his work with trumpeter Miles Davis, including the album "Somethin' Else" (1958). This was recorded during Adderley's membership in the Miles Davis Sextet and is one of the few post 1955 appearances of Miles Davis as a sideman. Indeed, Davis plays several of the first solos, composed the bluesy title track and, according to the liner notes, chose most of the material. "Autumn Leaves" would remain in the Davis book, and "Love for Sale" would be recorded by the Davis Sextet a little over two months later.

    Blue Note Reissue



    As much as I'd love to relay all kinds of anecdotes about the challenges Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray encounter during the mastering sessions, I witness none. These boys know the sound of the facility and the Van Gelder masters like the backs of their handsBack home a month later, I unpack some test pressings Chad Kassem has sent meI hear the most realistic-sounding drums ever reproduced by my system. It's as though I'm sitting at the point of creation, experiencing the same high that brought such gifted musicians together as one. Steve Hoffman, Kevin Gray, Chad Kassem, and Don MacInnis have done Rudy Van Gelder and his Blue Note artists proud. Jason Victor Serinus, Stereophile, April 2008


    One of the best known record dates in the history of modern jazz, the chemistry among Adderley, Miles Davis, Hank Jones, Sam Jones and Art Blakey is amazing. Their reworkings of Autumn Leaves and Love For Sale are masterpieces. Miles' title tune and Nat Adderley's One For Daddy-O are classics.

    Pianist Oscar Peterson has a rare outing with a big band on this excellent reissue.

However the main focus is on Peterson and he is in excellent form on such songs as West Coast Blues, Here's That Rainy Day, Tricotism and Manteca, blending in very well with the orchestra.

    This rare 1960 Riverside blues date finds John Lee Hooker both in a trio setting with jazz musicians Sam Jones (bass) and Louis Hayes (drums) who were Cannonball Adderley's rhythm section at the time and unaccompanied on a few numbers as well. A departure from his R&B Vee-Jay output, That's My Story features more of a stripped down, acoustic country-blues sound courtesy of producer Orrin Keepnews. The compelling 12-song set boasts all Hooker originals and is highlighted by the warning shot of Gonna Use My Rod, the gospel-tinged One of These Days and the stirring solo cuts That's My Story and Democrat Man.

    The New Scene Of King Curtis

    Recorded in 1960 in the Rudy Van Gelder studio, this amazing session is a rare example of the legendary R&B saxophonist King Curtis playing in a jazz setting. Although Curtis is best known for his work on seminal early sides like the Coasters' "Yakety Yak", and as a backing musician for the likes of Aretha Franklin and Wilson Pickett, Curtis proves here that his immense talent was not limited by genre. Featuring Nat Adderley on trumpet, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass and Oliver Jackson on drums, Curtis plays four original compositions and the standard "Willow Weep For Me", and while this session is not necessarily groundbreaking, it still represents some of the best jazz of the era!

    Milestones (Mono) (On Sale)

    Masterwork is Oft-Overlooked Link Between Round About Midnight and Kind of Blue


    Vanguard Sonics: Mobile Fidelity Reissue Presents The 1958 Standard with Unparalleled Sound Quality


    In MONO You Will Not Hear a Better Analog Edition


    Only Record to Feature Davis Original Sextet, Including Rhythm Section of Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones


    Title Track Stands as First-Ever Modal Composition Even as Blues and Hard-Bop Flavors Make LP One of Davis Most Explosive Affairs


    Sketches of Spain, Kind of Blue, Round About Midnight, Four & More, and In a Silent Way Also Available from Mobile Fidelity


    Miles Davis created just one studio album with his original sextet. He made every moment count. Pairing with Cannonball Adderley, John Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones, the trumpeter not only laid the groundwork for the modalism that immediately followed but tailored a genuine modern-jazz masterwork laden with performances among the most explosive of his distinguished career. Due to its sandwiched position between the more famous Round About Midnight and epochal Kind of Blue, Milestones remains, for too many music lovers, an overlooked classic.


    Part of Mobile Fidelitys Miles Davis catalog restoration series, Milestones has been restored to mono for the first time as to expose the records standing as one of the all-time great jazz efforts.Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, this unsurpassed 180g mono LP edition grants each musician their own space in a well-defined, broadened soundstage. Colors, shapes, and dimensions appear in the manner they do when beheld from behind a studio-control rooms window.


    Davis burnished trumpet? Rendered in three-dimensional perspective, coaxing his mates out to play with unburdened zest and commotion. Coltranes trademark saxophone? Witness it in life-size proportion, his solos working in tandem with and against the driving rhythms. Garlands swaggering piano lines? Visualize the 88 keys as he hits full stride, the chords and fills slithering around skeletal frameworks.


    If anything, Milestones is as famous for its title track as the players that produced it. The launching pad for many of Davis (and later, his contemporaries) improvisational flights, the singular piece invites the tessellated explorations Coltrane would forever chase as well as the headliners argyle solo work, who broaches territories that far exceed what he had done with his bop-rooted past. Every song is a highlight, whether its the bravado No Jackle, featuring a hot-foot pace and bebop strains, or Sids Ahead, which continues the albums blues theme while tossing around edgy harmonics and inside-out structures.


    Then theres Straight, No Chaser, the absolutely definitive rendition of Thelonious Monks signature piece. Coltranes marbled playing pulls at the tunes lobed borders, Adderley takes liberty with solos, and Davis dances around his mates, at one point quoting When the Saints Go Marching In while demonstrating his knowledge of tradition and eye towards the future. A milestone if there ever was. And now, in resplendent mono.

    The Weather Report/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Series Begins!


    The Original 1976 Jazz Rock Fusion Classic Black Market Album


    Featuring Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter, Chester Thompson, Alex Acuna And The Debut Of Jaco Pastorius


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso And Manufactured By R.T.I.


    The legendary Weather Report set the music world on fire back in the early seventies with their hypnotic blend
    of progressive-fused jazz with funk, prog-rock and soul, augmented with the brilliant and skillful musicianship of their
    superstar founders Wayne Shorter on saxophone and various electronic reeds and the late great Joe Zawinul on a
    stunning array of keyboards and electronic instruments. Both of these legendary musicians/composers worked with
    Miles Davis on his classics like Bitches Brew, plus solid tenures with legends like Cannonball Adderley (Zawinul) and
    Art Blakey (Shorter) all of which would prove to become the huge catalyst for things to come.


    Throughout the remainder of the late seventies and beyond, Weather Report's fine arsenal of recordings would
    take the band to the top of all the popular music charts. The 1976 fusion classic Black Market would go on to yield
    one of the biggest albums of their career as it hit the top rungs of the jazz charts, plus major showings in the pop and
    R&B charts. Black Market also introduced the world to the late great bassist legend Jaco Pastorius.


    No stone is left unturned, as this masterpiece is loaded with hit after hit with smashes like Joe Zawinul's title
    track Black Market, the powerful Elegant People by Wayne Shorter and of course Zawinul's tribute to his recently
    deceased bandleader Cannonball Adderley with Cannon Ball.


    As one of the most enduring albums in their massive career catalog, Black Market also features the all-star
    line-up of Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter, Jaco Pastorius (bass), Chester Thompson (drums) and Alex Acuna (percussion).
    Friends likes Michael Narada Walden and Alphonso Johnson also contribute to the amazing recording sessions. All in
    all, Black Market took the fans by storm, forever retaining the title superstars to the Weather Report franchise.


    Friday Music is pleased to announce for the very first time on audiophile vinyl Black Market by Weather Report.
    Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios, this amazing classic truly shines in the audiophile vinyl

    Chico Hamilton, Jo Jones, Art Blakey, Candido and Sabu were responsible for the beat while Kai Winding, Herbie Mann, Nat Adderley and Al Cohn took care of the background among other things, and such great musicians as Milt Hinton and Eddie Safranski and John Pisano tied the whole thing together.


    The 12 numbers, recorded in four sessions, were arranged by pianist Ralph Sharon in a laid-back and diversified manner and allowed Tony Bennett plenty of room to swing along serenely. Should one recommend a particular title? If the answer is yes, then the 'pure' numbers with Chico Hamilton. And the rest? Yes, the good old jazz evergreens - which, however, sound quite new here. Really one could practically recommend all of them!


    To be sure: this is no LP for narrow-minded jazz purists, and certainly not for lovers of the soothing crooner - but why not one for both camps?

    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    That's My Story

    Although Orrin Keepnews' Riverside Records was primarily a jazz label, the company dabbled in blues in the 1960s -- and one of the bluesmen who recorded for Riverside was John Lee Hooker. Recorded in 1960, this Keepnews-produced session came at a time when Hooker was signed to Vee-Jay. The last thing Keepnews wanted to do was emulate Hooker's electric-oriented, very amplified Vee-Jay output, which fared well among rock and R&B audiences. Keepnews had an acoustic country blues vision for the bluesman, and That's My Story favors a raw, stripped-down, bare-bones approach -- no electric guitar, no distortion, no singles aimed at rock & rollers. Over the years, Hooker fans have debated the merits of his Riverside albums. Some much prefer him in an electric setting; others applaud the rural vision that Keepnews had for him. But, truth be told, both approaches are equally valid. While many of his electric recordings are stunning, he is also well served by the rawness that Keepnews goes for on That's My Story. From the sobering Gonna Use My Rod (which finds Hooker warning that he will shoot anyone who fools around with his wife) to the gospel-themed One of These Days, Hooker's performances are often compelling. Most of the time, he is joined by two jazz musicians, acoustic bassist Sam Jones and drummer Louis Hayes, both Cannonball Adderley sidemen at the time. However, the blues giant is unaccompanied on a few selections, including the autobiographical title song and the overtly political Democrat Man (a passionate endorsement of the Democratic Party). While That's My Story falls short of essential, it is a solid, rewarding product of Hooker's association with Keepnews and Riverside Records.

    Heavy Weather


    The Weather Report/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Series Continues!


    The Original #1 1977 Jazz Rock Fusion Classic Heavy Weather


    First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl & Gatefold Cover Presentation


    Mastered By Joe Reagoso And Manufactured At R.T.I.


    The legendary Weather Report set the music world on fire back in the early seventies with their hypnotic blend
    of progressive-fused jazz with funk, prog-rock and soul, augmented with the brilliant and skillful musicianship of their
    superstar founders Wayne Shorter on saxophone and various electronic reeds and the late great Joe Zawinul on a
    stunning array of keyboards and electronic instruments. Both of these legendary musicians/composers worked with
    Miles Davis on his classics like Bitches Brew, plus solid tenures with legends like Cannonball Adderley (Zawinul) and
    Art Blakey (Shorter) all of which would prove to become the huge catalyst for things to come.


    Throughout the remainder of the late seventies and beyond, Weather Report's fine arsenal of recordings would
    take the band to the top of all the popular music charts. The 1977 fusion classic Heavy Weather would go on to yield
    one of the biggest albums of their career as it hit the top rungs of the jazz charts, plus major showings in the pop and
    R&B charts thanks to the top charting hit single Birdland.


    No stone is left unturned, as this masterpiece is loaded with smashes like Joe Zawinul's brilliant ballad A Remark
    You Made, the powerful Palladíum by Wayne Shorter and of course the funk assault of Jaco's Pastorius on Teen Town
    all which made this a top charting album in 1977.


    As one of the most enduring albums in their massive career catalog, Heavy Weather also features the all-star
    lineup of Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter, Jaco Pastorius (bass), Manolo Badrena (drums) and Alex Acuna (percussion).
    All in all, Heavy Weather took the fans by storm, forever retaining the title superstars to the Weather Report franchise.


    Friday Music is pleased to announce for the very first time here on audiophile vinyl Heavy Weather by Weather
    Report. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios, this amazing classic truly shines in the
