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!

Since 1991, bass legend Ron Carter has had a very fruitful relationship with Somethin' Else. For the sixth album for the label, Carter decided to go back to Rudy Van Gelder's studio where he'd had numerous sessions for such historic labels as Blue Note and Prestige. Leading his regular group at the time (Stephen Scott on piano, Lewis Nash on drums and Steve Kroon on percussion), he also decided to do a "live recording" without an audience. The result is a very nice album consisting of well-executed standards and three attractive Carter originals. The atmosphere is relaxed and spontaneous but everyone is deeply focused. The group is very tight and musical ideas are executed with a keen attention to detail.

Recorded at the Rudy Van Gelder Studio, New Jersey on January 14, 1997. SHM-CD uses an advanced polycarbonate material for superior sound quality and is compatible with all CD players.
