Louis Armstrong (9 CDs)

The live performances from 1947 to 1958 have been collected at last, let it be known that anyone who overlooks the music Louis Armstrong made on those concert stages does so at great expense to his or her personal joy.

9 CD Limited Edition Collection


Louis Armstrong (4 LPs)

For 60 years, every top name in jazz has seemingly made it up to Newport at least once, if not multiple times. Louis Armstrong was a fixture for many years and two of his complete sets, from the 1956 and 1958 festivals, are being released here in their entirety for the very first time.

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.

Chick Webb &
Ella Fitzgerald (8 CDs)

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.

Coleman Hawkins (8 CDs)


“Almost all of the recordings Hawkins made throughout a 45 year period were outstanding examples of improvisation, but among them were masterpieces by which all jazz tenor saxophone solos will forever be judged.”

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.

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


John Coltrane: The Complete Sun Ship Session (3 LPs) (#3005)


"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
