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!

One of the first signing by Bruce Lundvall for the resurrected Blue Note label, veteran saxophonist Stanley Turrentine returned to the label with an album that was "Straight Ahead" in title and style. This star-studded album consists of two separate sessions; one featuring the incomparable Jimmy Smith on organ, George Benson on guitar and Ron Carter on bass; and the other featuring Les McCann on piano. Highlights abound, but the masterpiece here is Turrentine's magnificent reading of Thad Jones's "A Child Is Born."

Recorded at Power Play Studios, Long Island City, NY, on November 24, 1984 (Tracks 3 and 5), and at Sigma Sound Studios, New York, NY on December 7, 1984 (Tracks 1, 2, 4 and 6). SHM-CD uses an advanced polycarbonate material for superior sound quality and is compatible with all CD players.
