CHICK COREA Now He Sings, Now He Sobs (Limited Edition 2019 US issue of the 1968 5-track stereo LP in the Blue Note Tone Poet Series, specially plated & pressed at RTI on 180gram Vinyl & mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from the original master tape. Chick’s brilliant trio album here is held in the same kind of rarefied esteem as the classic Bill Evans trio sessions. Featuring exquisite interplay between Chick, Czech bassist Miroslav Vitous & drum master Roy Haynes, the album includes the first recording of ‘Matrix’, one of Corea’s most beloved tunes, & now sounds better than any other release! Comes housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with original art, factory sealed in its perforated tear bag with hype sticker attached. Recommended B0029363-01).
NUJABES Modal Soul (Limited Edition 2020 Japanese-only 14-track double LP pressed on Heavyweight Vinyl, the first time the cult second album by the late great Nujabes has been released on vinyl. Tokyo-born Nujabes [real name Jun Seba spelt backwards] is seen as a legend among those that prefer hip-hop with a touch of jazz & soul. His appeal was word of mouth, his work always justifying the import price, sharing a similar fanbase in the west with J Dilla fans [both producers were bornon the same day on 7th February 1974 and both had their lives cut short in their 30s]. Both discs are in ‘as new’ unplayed condition housed in a heavy duty gatefold picture sleeve. Recommended for fans of Flying Lotus, DJ Shadow, CunninLynguists, Pete Rock, Camp Lo, Tribe Called Quest… the late great Terry Callier even makes an appearance on this record for a cover of his classic ‘Ordinary Joe’!
