UMG/Decca's new tranche of remastered British jazz vinyl

7 posts in this topic

Am currently listening to the just-released Le Dejeuner Sur L'Herbe by The New Jazz Orchestra lovingly remastered and cut by Gearbox Records for Universal/Decca's British jazz reissue series. The audio quality on 180grm vinyl is staggeringly good. The previous two reissues in this series, Don Rendell's Space Walk and Kenny Wheeler's Windmill Tilter, were again both superbly produced. Despite the slightly high purchase price, I cannot recommend these three albums enough. The quality is such that it would easily convert vinyl skeptics. I've now been convinced by these (and other recent reissues) that the much-vaunted resurgence of vinyl is not just hype or hip. They also come with an audio download code and an insert with new liner notes by the series' executive producer Tony Higgins.

Good luck with the download code.  The one vinyl release I have from them was Back Door; it came with a download code, but I couldn't successfully do it.  I couldn't even figure out where to download it from.

That's a shame.  Both of my codes from this series have worked perfectly so not anticipating any issues with this one 

Does anyone know which titles are due next?  I have only seen listings up to 'Dejeuner...'

Tony H is keeping his counsel on this, but looks like there will be others of this ilk; who knows? Hum Dono? Westbrooks? Dankworth? BTW my download codes all worked but I just wish they would yield MP3s rather than WAVS (I realise that rather defeats the purpose of high res digital, but I still listen on iPod/iPhone).

Space Walk seems to not have walked to too many US shops; that's the one I need.
