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!

Living jazz legend Jackie McLean, age 63 in January 1996, decided to record his first leader album in four years on the Japanese label Somethin' Else. That in itself was great news, but that he decided to collaborate with Junko Onishi--a phenomenal jazz pianist who was having a meteoric rise at the time--was almost too much for Japanese jazz fans. Supported by a fantastic rhythm section of Nat Reeves and Lewis Nash, McLean and Onishi collided with immense force and created superb music that is hard-driving and passionate. Highlights abound, from McLean revisiting his old hits like "Little Melonae, " "Sentimental Journey" and "Bluesnik" to Onishi's excellent original "Jackie's Hat." Engineered by Jim Anderson, the sound quality is also very good. This is definitely one of the best albums released by Somethin' Else, a towering achievement, a crown jewel. Enthusiastically recommended!

Recorded at Power Station Studio, NYC on January 28-31, 1996. SHM-CD uses an advanced polycarbonate material for superior sound quality and is compatible with all CD players.
