Evans' Remastered Portrait - $12.98 $8.48FAN: Evans
The crisp remastering is a joy, and brings the glorious music into sharp, gorgeous relief. Evans' treatments of standards such as "Come Rain or Come Shine," "Witchcraft," and "Someday My Prince Will Come" are startling and moving, but it's the originals - "Peri's Scope" and the seminal "Blue in Green" - that stand out.
Recent Releases From Fantasy
McCoy Tyner: Fly With the Wind
John Coltrane: Settin' the Pace
Sonny Rollins: Plays For Bird

Rare Concert From "The Bach of Rock"JSP: Longhair
Although he rarely traveled, Professor Longhair's music reached the world through his influence on Fats Domino, Doctor John and Allen Toussaint. Accompanied by nothing more than his own piano and a conga player, this rare performance from London in 1978 serves to remind us how rich, nuanced, and visceral Longhair's piano and vocal styles were.

Ivan Paduart: In Exile of DreamsCHL: PPP
"[Pianist Ivan Paduart's] classical training has made him an impressionist of jazz who is resolutely turned towards the future but steers clear of the pitfalls thanks to a visceral attachment to traditional values." -Le Soir Magazine

Pitch Pine Project: Unprecedented Clarity
Vana: A New Day

Milt Jackson & Wes Montgomery in 1961FAN: Wes
"Two of the best at their best... the mellowness of Jackson’s vibes coupled with the fluid guitar lines of Montgomery make this co-led session more of a relaxed late night listening session than a horn-driven affair would have. Highly recommended!"
