Upcoming Release!

Roland Kirk (4 LPs)

While “Slightly Latin” and “Now Please Don’t Cry, Beautiful Edith” are excellent albums, “Spirits” and “Rip, Rig And Panic” were two of Roland’s proudest moments in a recording studio and remains two peaks among his many achievements.


Now Available!

Clifford Jordan (6 CDs)

This will certainly rekindle interest in and broaden consideration of Clifford Jordan’s overall career, presenting as it does some unpolished diamonds and previously unreleased gems of a late-60s/early 70s recording.

The music that was the root of everything magical and life-affirming at The Savoy Ballroom -- the music of Chick Webb featuring his discovery, Ella Fitzgerald -- is still here and utterly glorious.

John Coltrane: The Complete Sun Ship Session (3 LPs)

John Coltrane: The Complete Sun Ship Session (3 LPs)

"Sun Ship, recorded August 26, 1965, captures one of the last sessions by the Classic John Coltrane Quartet (Coltrane, McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones). It comes at the culmination of a year in which Coltrane arguably reached his creative peak, a year rich in such masterworks." - David Wild, liner notes

Clifford Brown &
Max Roach (4 LPs)

The Clifford Brown & Max Roach Emarcy Albums (4 LPs)(#3004)

"Brown’s solos, which marry the technical mastery of Dizzy Gillespie, the melodic flow and big sound of Fats Navarro, and a determined optimism all Brown’s own, became touchstones for a generation of young trumpeters; but Roach’s contributions are equally important and made a similar impact." - Bob Blumenthal, liner notes
