    The Randy Newman Songbook (Box Set)

    Nonesuch Records releases the four-LP, vinyl-only, limited-edition The Randy Newman Songbook box set in 2016. Nonesuch's Randy Newman Songbook series-comprising solo recordings of songs from throughout Randy Newman's five-decade career-previously included two volumes, released on CD in 2003 and 2011; the box set marks their first release on vinyl. Sixteen additional songs from a newly released third volume, along with five bonus tracks (Feels Like Home, A Wedding in Cherokee County, Family Album: Homage to Alfred, Emil and Lionel Newman, I'm Dreaming,and Wandering Boy), join those first two volumes in a new, thematic sequencing, to create this new complete Songbook box set. Mitchell Froom produced The Randy Newman Songbook, Vol. 1 and was joined on Vol. 2 and Vol. 3 by Newman's lifelong friend and colleague Lenny Waronker.


    The New York Times said of the first volume of The Randy Newman Songbook: The great craftsmanship is more apparent in the stripped-down context, and the Associated Press said, Few singer-songwriters could inject more new life into solo piano versions of their work than Randy Newman. The UK's Uncut called Vol. 2 another subtly sublime stroll through the master's back catalogue, noting that Newman is owner of a peerless canon, and that the album isolates his full range of qualities: the improbable juxtapositions of caustic topicality and heart-wrenching universality, the concise character studies, and singing and piano playing that seem to emanate from the very fabric of America.

    Randy Newman

    Randy Newman is the debut recording by Randy Newman, originally released in 1968. Unlike his later albums which featured Newman and his piano backed by guitar, bass guitar, and drums, Randy Newman was highly orchestral and aimed to blend the orchestra with Newman's voice and piano.

    Randy Wolfe, better known as Randy California, was a founding member of psychedelic 60s rockers Spirit. As a teenager he played guitar in Jimi Hendrix's band, Jimmy James and the Blue Flames. Hendrix himself gave Randy the stage name to differentiate him from band mate Randy Palmer. 15-year-old California left the Blue Flames when they embarked on a European tour and his parents refused to let him go. Released in 1972, Kapt. Kopter and the (Fabulous) Twirly Birds is California's first solo record. Heavily influenced by Jimi Hendrix, this album is dense and way ahead of its time.

    Blue Moses (Speakers Corner)

    Randy Weston - now an elderly gentleman and one of the few living witnesses and co-creators from the heyday of hard bop - still leaves his home in Brooklyn to tour through Africa, Europe and Asia. A truly multicultural man. His percussive style has been influenced in particular by the ethnic music of Morocco; his amazing sense for the sounds produced by North-African melodic and rhythmic instruments has enriched his music over many years.
    After seven years without making any recordings, Blue Moses was recorded in 1972 in Rudy Van Gelder's studio. Lengthy trips through North Africa and as far as the Niger, plus the ignorance of American record companies, were the reasons for the long pause. Finally the CTI producer Creed Taylor took an interest in Randy Weston and financed a large ensemble with Don Sebesky as arranger.
    The four themes provide a great basis for improvisations by the soloists, whereby the Randy Weston's piano takes the lion's share. The flute is also very prominent - and no wonder: it is played by Hubert Laws. It is quite possible that many jazz fans will have missed the name Randy Weston when flipping through the letter 'W' in record shops in the 70s. Now they have the opportunity to correct this mistake with this re-release



    Musicians:



    • Randy Weston (piano)

    • Don Sebesky (arranger)

    • Grover Washington Jr. (tenor saxophone)

    • Freddie Hubbard (trumpet)

    • Garnett Brown (trombone)

    • Alan Rubin (fluegel horn)

    • Hubert Laws (flute)

    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.

    Little Niles (Pure Pleasure)

    Randy Weston, one of the world's foremost pianists and composers, a true innovator and visionary. Starting with the gospel of bop according to Thelonious Monk, Weston gradually absorbed the letter and spirit of African and Caribbean rhythms and tunes, welding everything together into a searching, energizing, often celebratory blend. His piano work ranges across a profusion of styles from boogie-woogie through bop into dissonance, marked by a stabbing quality reminiscent of, but not totally indebted to Monk.



    Combining the Ellingtonish arrangements of Melba Liston with the rhythmically intriguing explorations of Randy Weston this album represented a high point in his career at the time. All the tunes, written by Randy Weston, were inspired by his children Niles and Pamela. The innocence, excitement, anticipation and tension of childhood are all displayed here in these warm vinyl grooves.



    Musicians:



    • Randy Weston (piano)

    • Johnny Griffin (tenor saxophone)

    • Ray Copeland, Idrees Sulieman (trumpet)

    • Melba Liston (arranger, trombone)

    • George Joyner (bass)

    • Charlie Persip ( drums)

    African Cookbook (Pure Pleasure)

    When this set was recorded in 1964, pianist Randy Weston had no luck interesting any label to release the music, so he came out with it independently on his tiny Bakton company & then in 1972 Atlantic released the performances. It is surprising that no company in the mid-1960s signed Weston up because Willie's Tune from the set had the potential to catch on, Berkshire Blues is somewhat known and the mixture of accessible bop with African rhythms overall is appealing.


    Trumpeter Ray Copeland was responsible for the arrangements while Weston contributed all but one of the songs. Copeland and the great tenor Booker Ervin have their share of solo space, bassist Vishnu Wood and drummer Lenny McBrowne are fine in support, and on three numbers the percussion of Big Black and Sir Harold Murray are added; Big Black also sings on Congolese Children. An excellent outing, infectionously listenable!!

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.

    Raw Silk (Pure Pleasure) (Awaiting Repress)

    Why didn't this girl get the recognition she deserves? There are some absolutely wonderful songs on this album and even better vocal performances that few have come close to. The collection is slightly jazz tinged but don't let that put you off. Outstanding tracks include, Someone To Believe In, Endlessly and Nobody, all of which will touch your heart. But there is a moment in the first couple of lines of the song - Love Is Like A Newborn Child - when Miss Crawford hits a note and holds it for a few seconds that just takes your breath away! Worth buying just for that moment alone. If you are into the great vocalists of our time then buy this. It's fantastic.

    About Pure Pleasure
