Somethin' Else label reissue series of great jazz albums from late 1980s to early 1990s!
Brand-new, 24-bit remastering and pressed on SHM-CD! Special limited edition!

Somethin' Else label was established in 1988 by Toshiba EMI's producer Hitoshi Namekata to present new recordings of the current jazz artists, both American and Japanese. With Toshiba EMI's alliance with Blue Note in the U.S., he had access to the fantastic roster of Blue Note, both young and seasoned. Looking back now in 2013, the early catalog of Somethin' Else has historic significance, introducing many young talents who are now giants, releasing fresh and important albums by veteran artists, and realizing unusual and unexpected collaborations. Now, the best albums are available again, this time on superior-sounding SHM-CD with brand-new, 24-bit mastering!

After his re-entry into the Blue Note label and acoustic jazz with Foreign Intrigue, Tony Williams formed an outstanding quintet with trumpeter Wallace Roney, tenor saxophonist Bill Pierce and the late pianist Mulgrew Miller. The group made four studio albums, the third of which was Native Heart. The entire program consists of Williams' original compositions, each of which starts with a brief drum solo to set the pace. The empahsis seems to be, and therefore the listener will do well to focus, on the quality of the writing than the excitement of hard-hitting solos. This is a fine album that showcases Williams' somewhat overlooked talent as composer.

Recorded at Power Station, NYC on September 11-13, 1989. SHM-CD uses an advanced polycarbonate material for superior sound quality and is compatible with all CD players.
