    Sings A Song With Mulligan (Pure Pleasure)

    Singer Annie Ross' first solo album after joining Lambert, Hendricks & Ross finds her at the peak of her powers. Ross is joined by two versions of the Gerry Mulligan Quartet with either Chet Baker or Art Farmer on trumpet, Bill Crow or Henry Grimes on bass, and drummer Dave Bailey. Annie Ross is at her best (and most appealing) on I've Grown Accustomed to Your Face, Give Me the Simple Life, How About You, and The Lady's in Love With You, but all 14 selections are quite rewarding and her interplay with baritonist Mulligan is consistently memorable.



    Musicians:



    • Annie Ross (vocal)

    • Gerry Mulligan (bassoon)

    • Chet Baker, Art Farmer (trumpet)

    • Henry Grimes (bass)

    • Dave Bailey (drums)




    Recorded December 1957 in New York and February and September 1958 in Los Angeles



    About Pure Pleasure



    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, Pure Pleasure 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 existent 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 emphasize that Pure Pleasure 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 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 and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Farmer's Corner

    Following the critically acclaimed Blood Oaths of the New Blues, James Jackson Toth a.k.a Wooden Wand decided to try something different: instead of spending a week in a studio with the same people, the same engineer, the same equipment and the same state of mind, he would record in fits and starts, whenever - and wherever - he felt like it. Over six sessions in four studios spanning three states, he began amassing tracks. Toth then chose his favourites for Farmer's Corner, which is, remarkably, the very first self-produced Wooden Wand album. Aided on the majority of the tracks by bassist Darin Gray (On Fillmore, Jim O'Rourke, Grand Ulena ), and guitarists William Tyler (Lambchop, Silver Jews, Yo La Tengo) and Doc Feldman. The result reflects Toth's omnivorous musical and narrative obsessions. The arrangements - think Little Feat covering Harvest Moon - only serve to highlight his capabilities as both a songwriter and storyteller. The collected songs form an easy entry into the ever-growing Toth output, where outlaws on the run, epic landscapes, endless travels, agitated insomniacs and ditch-digging memory-evaders lurk behind every turn.

    Pressed on Two 180gram Audiophile-Grade LPs at

    Bernie Grundman Mastering Studios


    Limited, Numbered Edition of 1,500 Copies


    Housed in a Stoughton Case-Wrapped Gatefold
    Jacket

    Previously Out of Press for Over 3 Decades


    Flugelhornist Art Farmer and guitarist Jim Hall had a
    regular group for a time in the mid-'60s but (except
    for one occasion) had not played together since, until
    this 1978 LP. This is an unusual effort for CTI in that
    it is a quintet set without added horns, strings or
    keyboards. Farmer and Hall are joined by vibraphonist
    Mike Mainieri, bassist Michael Moore and drummer
    Steve Gadd for two standards, the title cut and a jazz
    adaptation of a piece by Ravel. Since Farmer and Hall
    have long had very complementary styles (both being
    lyrical, harmonically advanced and thoughtful in their
    improvisations), it is little surprise that this set is a
    complete success.


    Now this classic recording gets ORG Music's
    audiophile treatment with this 180gram double LP
    45RPM reissue, mastered from original analog tapes
    by Bernie Grundman and pressed at Pallas Group in
    Germany. Each copy of this limited edition release will

    When Beck Was Cool is a remarkable marriage of a gifted interpreter with inspiring material. You dont need to know the original Beck versions (though most will) to appreciate Joel Jeromes interpretations which range from flirtatious forays into country-rock (Got No Mind) to a mÉlange of string and woodwind timbres, pianos and whistling (Girl Dreams) that evokes his beloved Beatles as much as Beck.

    The lyrical Farmer and the up-and-coming Jordan have plenty of fine solos, as does the influential Silver, whose funky, witty style stood apart from the prevailing Bud Powell influence of the era. Although none of the newer songs caught on as standards, this set (which has plenty of mood and groove variation) holds together very well and still sounds fresh 40 years later.

    Dial S For Sonny

    Dial S for Sonny, Sonny Clark first session for Blue Note Records and his first session as a leader, is a terrific set of laidback bop, highlighted by Sonny Clark liquid, swinging solos. Sonny Clark leads a first-rate group -- Art Farmer (trumpet), Curtis Fuller (trombone), Hank Mobley (tenor sax), Wilbur Ware (bass), Louis Hayes (drums) -- through four originals and two standards, balancing the selections between swinging bop and reflective ballads. There are traces of Bud Powell in Sonny Clark style, but he's beginning to come into his own, developing a style that's alternately edgy and charmingly relaxed. Hank Mobley, Art Farmer and Curtis Fuller have their moments, but Sonny Clark steals the show in this set of fine, straight-ahead bop.

    Close To Home

    Recorded in 1975 at his eastern Kentucky home, this is the last album Roscoe Holcomb released before his death in 1981. A coal miner and farmer for much of his life, those struggles are reflected in his sparse, haunting recordings. Featuring only Holcomb on vocals, guitar, and banjo, Close To Home is a beautiful collection of folk-blues and old-time ballads including the epic "The Village Churchyard." Lovingly reissued on vinyl with an exact replica of the original Folkways jacket and booklet.

    Part of the ultimate audiophile Prestige stereo reissues from Analogue Productions - 25 of the most collectible, rarest, most audiophile-sounding Rudy Van Gelder recordings ever made. All cut at 33 1/3.


    All mastered from the original analog master tapes by mastering maestro Kevin Gray. 200-gram LPs pressed at Acoustic Sounds' state-of-the-art pressing plant, Quality Record Pressings, plated by Gary Salstrom


    Deep groove label pressings, tip-on jackets on thick cardboard stock


    Benny Golson, who came to the attention of the jazz public with Tadd Dameron's band and Dizzy Gillespie's orchestra, was a member of the Jazztet - the group he had formed with Art Farmer - at the time of this recording. Farmer is not with him in this recording but another Jazztet-mate, trombonist Curtis Fuller, is. Although this session is not as structured as the three-horn efforts of the Jazztet, there is a balance between blowing and Golson's writing that makes for a felicitous blend, whether on Golson's own My Blues House, Gene Krupa's old burner, Drum/Boogie, or Jerome Kern's Yesterdays. And with Art Blakey on drums things cook when they have to, and simmer at the right moments. With Curtis Fuller, Ray Bryant, Paul Chambers and Art Blakey.

    Memorial

    When Brownie stood up and took his first solo on 'Philly J J,' I nearly fell off my seat in the control room. The power, range and brilliance together with the
    warmth and invention was something that I hadn't heard since Fats Navarro, stated famed jazz historian Ira Gitler, who happened to be supervising the
    1953 session that yielded part of Memorial. Indeed, trumpeter Clifford Brown is heard here in fine form in two unrelated sessions. On four selections,
    Brown coasts effortlessly along with Tadd Dameron's Orchestra, sharing the solo spotlight with Benny Golson on tenor and Gigi Gryce on alto. On the
    remainder of the album, composed from material cut in Sweden the same year, Brown is joined by fellow trumpeter Art Farmer for four Quincy Jones
    arrangements with a Swedish group that includes altoist Arne DomnÉrus, baritonist Lars Gullin, and pianist Bengt Hallberg. On whole, this is classic,
    sophisticated material that deserves a place in every jazz vinyl collection.

    The Witch Soundtrack

    Limited Edition Starburst Colored Vinyl


    The Witch is a horror film directed by newcomer Robert Eggers. Set on the edge of a dark forest in 17th-century New England, The Witch is a tale of only family's terrifying unraveling under the specter of black magic, possession and an unknown evil. When an English farmer leaves his colonial plantation and relocates his family to a remote plot of land, strange and unsettling occurrences begin happening immediately - animals become vicious, crops wilt and one of the children disappears. Paranoia grips the family as they accuse one of their own of witchcraft. Any great horror film has an equally impressive composer. The Witch is no different. Mark Korven has created a one-of-a-kind spine-chilling score by employing obscure instrumentation from hurdy gurdys to nyckelharps. The result is a discordant, spectral affair that draws the listener into the misty world of the family's farm as horror permeates throughout.

    About Pure Pleasure



    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, Pure Pleasure 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 existent 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 emphasize that Pure Pleasure 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 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 and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    In Cool Blood

    Chain & the Gang are singers Ian Svenonius, Katie Alice Greer, and other musicians including Brett Lyman (M'Lady's records), Fiona Campbell (Coasting, Vivian Girls), Chris Sutton Hornet Leg), Madison Farmer (Coasting), and Fred Thomas (Swim Suit, Saturday Looks Good To Me).


    Chain & the Gang have grown up in the crevices and the cracks of society, not due to the hi-octane nurturing of main-stream media and corporate wizards, but in spite of them. They make their version of call and answer rock 'n' roll to fill a yawning chasm in music where fun, personality, charm, and content fit in.


    With songs like Surprise Party, Heavy Breathing and Certain Kinds of Trash, Chain & the Gang's punk spirit is as natural as falling off a log, and emits the pure expression of a feral child with finger paint. The record is called In Cool Blood because Chain & the Gang are premeditatedly burying all bogus elements with a dirt heap of sonic primitivitism and verbal ingenuity.

    In The Winner's Circle (Pure Pleasure)

    Rare stuff from John Coltrane! The album features 'Trane' playing tenor on only 4 of the album's 8 tracks - making it kind of surprising that they used his name in the title - but the album is a lesser-known batch of large group recordings that offer an interesting early chapter in his career! The main force behind the album is arranger Harry Tubbs - possibly not a name that's as sexy as John Coltrane, hence the billing - but a worthy leader for the date, given the quality of the music.



    Many of the other players here are small combo heroes who can also shine brightly in bigger groups - such as Donald Byrd and Art Farmer on trumpets, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Al Cohn on baritone sax, Eddie Costa on piano and vibes, and Oscar Pettiford on bass - plus Rolf Kuhn, making an early American appearance on clarinet. Coltrane gets in some nice, but short moments on the date - but the bigger charm is the full ensemble work - on titles that include She Didn't Say Yes, Turtle Walk, At Home With The Blues, Seabreeze, and Love & The Weather.



    Musicians:



    • John Coltrane (tenor saxophone)

    • Donald Byrd, Art Farmer (trumpet)

    • Frank Rehak (trombone)

    • Gene Quill (alto saxophone)

    • Al Cohn (bassoon)

    • Rolf Kuhn (clarinet)

    • Eddie Costa (piano, vib)

    • Freddie Green, Kenny Burrell (guitar)

    • Oscar Pettiford (bass)

    • Philly Joe Jones, Ed Thigpen (drums
