Warner Jazz has just announced new additions to their ‘Jazz1000-Yen’ reissue series. The series – which is being curated via Japan (hence its titling) – aims to make available long lost and/or deleted jazz albums from the vaults of Atlantic and Warners. Many of these new reissues have only ever been available on vinyl and all come re-mastered and in new distinctive packaging that still respects the original album.
Amongst the titles are David Sanborn’s ‘Heart To Heart’ and ‘Taking Off’, Dee Dee Bridgewater’s ‘Dee Dee Bridgewater’, Donald Byrd’s ‘Donald Byrd And 125th Street – N.Y.C.’, Eddie Harris’ ‘E.H. In The U.K (The London Sessions)’, Grover Washington Jr’s ‘Come Morning’, Hank Crawford’s ‘True Blue’, Herbie Mann’s ‘ The Beat Goes On’, Jimmy Witherspoon’s ‘Hey, Mrs Jones !’ and the Miles Davis / Marcus Miller collaboration –’Music From Siesta’.
All titles will be available from 22nd September 2014
