Description: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!

Veteran alto saxophonist Phil Woods is undoubtedly a bebop disciple of Charlie Parker, but, through his early study with Lennie Tristano and long-term stint in Europe, he developed his own sound and style that can be described as slightly "cooler" than Parker and, say, his contemporary Jackie McLean.Cool Woods is a nice album he recorded for Somethin' Else in 1999. In addition to his long-time collaborator Bill Goodwin on drums, he had two important guests to form an all-star quartet: Japanese pianist Junko Onishi and bass legend Ron Carter. The title invites a comparison with Wood's early hit album Warm Woods which, like the present album, showcased his heartwarming side with selections played mostly in medium to slow tempo. Onishi and Carter make important contributions with their individual, distinctive solos.

Recorded at Right Track Studios, New York on January 4 and 5, 1999. SHM-CD uses an advanced polycarbonate material for superior sound quality and is compatible with all CD players.
