East Wind Reissue

67 posts in this topic

I have a list from CDJapan that says that on February the fourth will East Wind reissue in DSD Remastering more or less their whole catalog, many good ones in there, especially for me quite a few with Hank Jones (The Great Jazz Trio), they

are pretty cheap 1000 Yen a piece.

Interesting they are reissuing Lennie Tristano's "Descent into the Maelstrom" on 2/4. This has just been released on Tristano's Jazz Records (JR14CD) "By Licence Agreement with East Wind Music Ltd. Co. Japan".

The Andrew Hill titles (solo, trio, and quartet) are not to be missed. They haven't been reissued for some time now. The solo and trio outings are especially fine.

Though I don't read Japanese, I was able to identify some of the East Wind reissues as I have them on Earlier Japanese CD releases.

These are all things I definitely recommend along with the Cedar Walton at Pit Inn which is great.

Art Farmer Quartet with Cedar, Sam Jones and Billy Higgins - To Duke With Love and also The Summer Knows.

Art Farmer Quintet Live at Boomers Vol. 1 and Vol.2 with Clifford Jordan, Cedar, Sam & Billy H.

Pentagon with Clifford Jordan , Cedar, Sam, Billy

Sam Jones - Seven Minds with Cedar, Billy, and a string quartet on a couple of tracks

There may well be others I was unable to identify.

If you are interested in the Kikuchi album then I would also recommend "out of chaos" by Kosuke Mine which is virtually the same band. I have both the LPs and they're great.

The Sam Jones album is really nice, one of the most listenable jazz LPs with strings I know. Almost forgot I have this ...

I'm curious about the Oliver Nelson - must be one of his last dates before he passed. Anyone heard this?

p.s. That album was his last session ...

although Nelson assembling a sort of "West Coast All Star" ensemble for this date, this recording didn`t leave a memorable impression with me - but probably of worth for Oliver Nelson aficionados....

On vinyl many of these were originally issued 'direct cut' and always sounded particularly great sonically, to my ears. Much better pressings than the US Inner City releases of these titles.

The Art Farmers and the Cedar Waltons can be recommended without reservation. As can the Clifford Jordan/Cedar Walton 'The Pentagon'.

I have that Oliver Nelson on vinyl. Will have to dig it out again.

Regarding the Oliver Nelson side, I've long had an affection for it (it was released here on Inner City back in the day, as many of these things were). For no specific reason, really, other than maybe that Bobby Bryant is heard to lengthy benefit, and Oliver's charts are seriously biting in a way that much of his later L.A. work wasn't, as is the whole gig,really. Everybody came to play, and they were given good things to play, so...win-win. Perhaps best/most effectively heard with an awareness of the times and the career arc in full mind?

Probably not "essential" if you're not an at least really interested-in-the-whole-story Nelson-ite, but I am, so there you go.

Oh wow, I just noticed that Reggie Lucas' Survival Themes is in there...that's a really interesting piece of the 70s Miles puzzle that is pretty much overlooked both now and then, at least in my experience.

The Bastards also seem to be planning to stock them - not surprisingly.

I had no idea about this label. These Jones/Carter/Williams Trio CDs seem very intriguing and from what I read especially their Village Vanguard ones are very special. Can you confirm?

That's really good to know, though it's always dangerous to my wallet to go poking around their website. Anyone familiar with that Hubert Eaves title? What are the Hino titles like? Jim, I also am a fan of that Oliver Nelson date. Can you describe the Reggie Lucas in more detail?

JPC in Germany has them listed - I pre-ordered the Nelson.

Gave the Sam Jones a spin this morning - very nice, as I said. The string quartet is only on half of the tracks and used very tastefully, as a coloration of the arrangements - really a trio album with Jones as the main soloist. I remember that I tried to get a copy of every new Sam Jones release as a leader in the 1970's and never was disappointed. Glad I saw him live with Walton, Higgins, and Bob Berg back then - what a beautiful bass tone!

I second the questions about the Lucas and Eaves albums!

As I recall from back in the day, the Reggie Lucas and Hubert Eaves titles were a jazz-rock/funky-disco blend that wasn't very distinctive. Certainly nothing like Miles; more like Stanley Clarke wannabes.

I know nothing of him, other than reading that he played with Miles in 1975. What is Dune like?
