Description:Clearance Sale Item! Price Reduced!

Somethin' Else label reissue series of great jazz albums from late 1980s to early 1990s!
Brand-new, 24-bit remastering and pressed on SHM-CD! Special limited edition!


Somethin' Else label was established in 1988 by Toshiba EMI's producer Hitoshi Namekata to present new recordings of the current jazz artists, both American and Japanese. With Toshiba EMI's alliance with Blue Note in the U.S., he had access to the fantastic roster of Blue Note, both young and seasoned. Looking back now in 2013, the early catalog of Somethin' Else has historic significance, introducing many young talents who are now giants, releasing fresh and important albums by veteran artists, and realizing unusual and unexpected collaborations. Now, the best albums are available again, this time on superior-sounding SHM-CD with brand-new, 24-bit mastering!

Tenor saxophonist George Adams' Nightingale was a immensely popular when it was released in 1988, following his legendary performance with Don Pullen at Mount Fuji Jazz Festival in 1987. Earlier that year, Adams had lost two of his closest musical collaborators, Dannie Richmond and Gil Evans, to whom he dedicated this album. In this collection of popular songs with a gospel feeling, Adams put his explosive improvisational power to the back burner--although we can feel it--and chose to emphasize the melody and the beautiful tone of his instruments.

With a simple piano trio, Adams "sings" with his tenor, soprano and flute, all of which have immediate, emotional, voice-like qualities. I should also mention the tremendous contributions by pianist Hugh Lawson who turns in beautiful performances throughout. The quality of the sound, recorded by Jim Anderson, one of the best jazz recording engineers of our time, is also very good. Recommended!

Recorded at A&R Recording, New York City, on August 19 and 20, 1988. SHM-CD uses an advanced polycarbonate material for superior sound quality and is compatible with all CD players.
