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!
Winner of 1993 Swing Journal Jazz Disc Gold Award!

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!

Cuban pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba stunned the world with his astonishing technique and virtuosity when he was introduced by Charlie Haden in 1990. Reflecting his meteoric rise, he released four albums from the Japanese Somethin' Else label within less than two years. Rapsodia, his fifth album as a leader, for the first time featured his regular, Cuban quartet as well as Rubalcaba using synthesizers and samplers in addition to the piano. Winner of the 1993 Swing Journal Jazz Disc Gold Award, this amazing album showcases a hyperactive hybrid of jazz and Latin music, often played with a blazing speed and amazing dexterity.

Recorded at Woodstock Karuizawa Studio, Japan, on November 15-21, 1992. SHM-CD uses an advanced polycarbonate material for superior sound quality and is compatible with all CD players.
