Any chance for ANY new Conn, Rare Groove, RVG, etc.

I know that this has been covered before, but it has been awhile and I was curious whether Blue Note under their current grand poobah, Don Was, has any plans

to re-issue ANY previously unreleased BN material from 60s or 70s? It has been forever since we have had anything new. I'm sure Cuscuna knows if there is still any material out there in the vaults that would make financial sense to release.

Apparently I am mourning the "official" passing of the period where we could anticipate any new releases.

Time to seal the casket for good? I'm afraid I know the answer, but was curious if it truly is the end...

A definitive answer is appreciated-and then I can possibly consider my collection complete as it ever will be...

Those particular series? Not a chance. Otherwise? Still probably nothing.

What's the state of EMI anyway? Whom do they belong to, and do those have any interest in releasing any jazz at all?

In classical, they seem to run their new productions mainly via Virgin Classics, but EMI itself seems to have mostly turned into a reissues operation. Wish it were at least that in jazz, but it's rather totally quantité négligeable there, it seems (no matter if Was or not).

Only EMI Japan seems still active reissuing Blue Note material with the BNLT999 & BNLA999 series.

Next month remastered SHM CDs of Joe Henderson's State Of The Tenor Vol. 1 & 2 will be released. See post #29 in thread.

I guess I can gladly book that under "superfluous" ... no need to re-buy stuff again and again, I'd rather see the few remaining rarities out and around. And maybe - despite Cuscuna's reluctancy - the odd unissued/canned session, too.

I would love to see :--

Blue Mitchell Bring It On Home To Me

Sam Rivers New Conception

both never issued on CD as far as I am aware.

Plus there are others that have no been available for a long time. e.g. The Empty Foxhole

For someone who got into jazz around 10 years ago, there was no better introduction to the history of modern jazz than the RVG titles that were released from the late 1990s through the end of the last decade. I discovered SO MUCH music through that series, along with the BN Conn releases. Maybe the well is dry anyways, but it's a shame that reissue programs like that are dead.

CDJapan does not yet have the new releases for October up, so there might be more.

The serial number TOCJ-95101 has already been taken by a new release (Terri Lyne Carrington - Money Jungle (2013/07/24)), so there could conceivably be 60 more reissues...

Some good suggestions in this thread. I would like to see Jackie McLean's High Frequency released on CD (outside of the old Mosaic box).

Hadn't even realized it had never appeared as a single disc ... love that Mosaic, I think it contains McLean's very best!

The copy I bought is a bad pressing, as is often the case at this price. One tune has a skip about two minutes in. Defective. Such a bummer!

I bet if there are any future reissues from Blue Note, it will come via downloads like the Donald Byrd live concert.

Although you can listen to streaming media of Donald Byrd Live at Montreux from July 5, 1973 on Blue Note's website, it is not available for download.
