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!
Winner of 1991 Swing Journal Jazz Disc Gold Award and Best Engineering Award!

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!

Drummer and composer and multi-instrumentalist Jack DeJohnette has led many groups always featuring talented younger musicians, with names like Directions and Special Edition. When he was looking for a label to release a recording by a very special iteration of his Special Edition featuring the super-talented musicians who were all around 30 years old: Greg Osby, Gary Thomas, Michael Cain and Lonnie Plaxico.

These musicians were relatively unknown at the time, but they were all heavy weights and would later lead their own groups and achieve many successes. The powerful band plays DeJohnette's varied compositions with uplomb, from the opening track with heavy beats and a fusion feel to the title track inspired by Native American movements and spirituality. This special CD received two awards from Swing Journal in 1991, the Gold Award (jazz album of the year) and the Best Engineering Award for the quality of sound recorded in a studio with great sonics which was a converted church. Highly recommended!

Recorded at Dreamland Studios, New York, in June 1991. SHM-CD uses an advanced polycarbonate material for superior sound quality and is compatible with all CD players.
