Ain’t nothing but a jazz thing here at eil.com this week with a vast array of top jazz rare vinyl and CDs coming through the doors, here’s a few to whet your jazz whistle, see them all in our Jazz collectors store.
Allan Holdsworth – 10 Album Set: Essential 2008 Japanese fully remastered <b>TEN</b> CD set, comprising the outstanding albums, I.O.U., Road Games, Metal Fatigue, Atavachron, Sand, Secrets, Wardenclyffe Tower +3, Hard Hat Area, None Too Soon & The Sixteen Men Of Tain. Each CD is housed in mini-LP style single pocket or gatefold picture sleeves complete with obi-strips & Japanese booklets, all near mint in their original reseals. Frank Zappa lauded him “one of the most interesting guys on guitar on the planet” & Robben Ford once called him “the John Coltrane of the guitar”.
Paul Gonsalves Quartet – Boom-Jackie-Boom-Chick: 2006 Japanese limited edition issue of the super limited 1964 8-track mono LP pressed on <b>200gram vinyl</b>, replicating the original Vocalion label design, laminated flipback sleeve and album notes down to a tee. You can always rely on attention to detail with the Japanese and this is a beautifully remastered edition at a fraction of the cost of an original. The <i>sound quality</i> is <i>glorious</i> and worth it alone for the opening title track, which is an absolute knockout! Complete with Japanese text insert and obi-strip. Now scarce and in demand itself, both sleeve and vinyl are in near mint condition.
Lennie Niehause – Vol. 1: ‘The Quintets’: Very rare 1956 12-track ‘deep groove’ mono LP, also featuring Jack Montrose, Bob Gordon, Monty Budwig, Shelley Manne, Stu Williamson, Hampton Hawes & Red Mitchell, pasted picture sleeve. The sleeve shows just a littlelight shelfwear with minor corner creasing & the vinyl remains excellent with few signs of play – A gem!
