As reported here at SJF back in June, Rhino are currently busy promoting the latest batch in their ‘Original Album’ series – where five classic albums from major artists are collected together to be retailed in the mid-price range.

The label’s newest tranche features some outstanding jazz collections. Check out our June feature for information on the sets which feature HERBIE MANN, ORNETTE COLEMAN and JOHN COLTRANE.

Rhino also have five-CD sets on AL JARREAU and Brazilian icon ANTONIO CARLOS JOBIM. The JARREAU collection offers some of the vocalist’s most accessible work – ‘We Get By’, ‘Glow’, ‘All Fly Home’, ‘This Time’ and the still classic ‘Breakin’ Away’. The JOBIM five piece has ‘The Wonderful World of Antonio Carlos Jobim’, ‘Love Strings And Jobim’,’ A Certain Mr. Jobim’, ‘Urubu’, and ‘Terra Brasils’. The five albums were hugely influential on initial release – impacting  right across the musical spectrum.
