    Attica Blues
    Attica BluesRecorded in 1972, Attica Blues melds elements of the avante garde, big band swing, blues, and funk with political and social concerns of the time.  On this CD, Archie Shepp creates message music with groove.  A remix of "Blues For Brother Joe Jackson" by Mondo Grosso can be heard on the new Verve Remixed 2 CD.


    A Love Supreme: Deluxe Edition
    A Love Supreme: Deluxe EditionJohn Coltrane saw the album-length suite A Love Supreme as his gift to God. The world has come to see it as a classic--not only Coltrane's best-known work, but one of the most important and influential jazz records ever made. Now, for the first time, the full story of A Love Supreme is available in one package. The first disc of this deluxe edition consists of A Love Supreme as released in 1965. The second disc includes the John Coltrane Quartet's only live performance of the suite, recorded at the Antibes jazz festival that summer and receiving its first authorized release--and, most notably, the long-rumored sextet version of the opening movement, receiving its first release of any kind. Mastered by the original recording engineer, Rudy Van Gelder, and containing extensive annotation and many rare photographs, this is the definitive edition of an indisputable masterpiece.


    The Blues And The Abstract Truth
    The Blues And The Abstract TruthSaxohponist Oliver Nelson's definitive musical statement and an Impulse! classic, this CD is the pinnacle of small group jazz composition -- big band writing for a small band.  Featuring Eric Dolphy, George Barrow, Bill Evans, Freddie Hubbard, Paul Chambers and Roy Haynes.
