Description: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!

This is the eponimous debut album by the tremendously talented pianist Renee Rosnes. Hailing from Canada, Rosnes had moved to New York less than three years before the bulk of the recording took place, but she'd already been a regular member of the bands led by Joe Henderson and Wayne Shorter. An impressive group of friends supported her on this stunning album: The rock-solid rhythm section comprised of Ron Carter and Lewis Nash, and guest horn players were Branford Marsalis and Ralph Bowen.

On top of the newly recorded materials by this superb band, Rosnes two previous duet recordings she had made with two of her heroes: Wayne Shorter's "Diana" recorded live in concert with the tenor titan with Rosnes playing piano and synthesizer; and "Fleur-De-Lis," a two piano duet with Herbie Hancock. As young as she was, she took the jazz world by storm in 1989 with this debut album, and instantly established her position as one of the most exciting jazz pianists of her generation. The gutsy sound by Rudy Van Gelder is also impressive. Very highly recommended!

Recorded at Van Gelder Studios, New Jersey, on February 4, 1989. Track 4 recorded on April 18, 1988 and Track 8 recorded on December 11, 1988. This CD includes a full-lenth English liner notes by Michael Cuscuna. SHM-CD uses an advanced polycarbonate material for superior sound quality and is compatible with all CD players.
