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!

The idea for this trio album featuring Ralph Peterson and Geri Allen hit producer Hitoshi Namekata when he heard "Just You, Just Me," recorded in the trio format during the sessions that produced Peterson's award-winning album, V. The trio track impressed Namekata so much that four months later he put Peterson, Allen and bassist Essiet Okon Essiet into the studio. The result is Triangular, a fascinating trio album with a lot of kinetic energy.

The leader of the album is unmistakably Peterson, who sets the pace with his lively, exciting drumming. But Allen and Essiet are content to play just supporting roles and contributes magnificently. Peterson tips his hat to his favorite drummer Denzel Best by including two of his compositions, the impressive opener "Bemsha Swing" and "Move." Other highlights include the title track which seems to be a spontaneous collaborative composition by the three members. Recommended!

Recorded at A&R Recording, New York City, on August 21 and 22, 1988. Track 5 recorded on April 20, 1988. SHM-CD uses an advanced polycarbonate material for superior sound quality and is compatible with all CD players.
