At last the legendary Vee Jay recordings are being released on CD with the best possible sound. During recent years these classic jazz albums have appeared on CD in different countries, in compilations that mixed mono and stereo masters, with errors in the titles and a variable sound. Now, this present edition has been carefully chosen from the best sources, and each track has been digitally remastered in 24-Bit high resolution. These CDs represent a real treasure for jazz fans all over the world, and we feel certain that they will enjoy them.
"The second of tenor-saxophonist Wayne Shorter's three Vee Jay LP's this album has five of Shorter's quirky originals plus the obscure "Ruby & The Pearl" (from a 1950's movie) and a pair of standards. Joined by a particularly strong rhythm section (pianist Cedar Walton, bassist Bob Cranshaw and drummer Art Blakey), Shorter sounds quite distinctive on the advanced hard bop material."
