Limited Edition - Only 2000 Sets!
6-SACD Box Set!
Great Jazz From The Riverside, Blue Note & Verve Labels!

This Limited Edition Box Set contains 6 great jazz albums from Verve, Riverside and Blue Note including: Wynton Kelly/Kelly Blue, Bill Evans Trio/Waltz For Debby, Wes Montgomery/Full House, Bud Powell/The Scene Changes, Lee Morgan/The Sidewinder, and The Oscar Peterson Trio/We Get Requests.

Wynton Kelly/Kelly Blue: Respected by his peers as a pianist of remarkable creativity and feeling, Wynton Kelly's own stardom was on hold until 1959, when he got a call from Miles Davis and joined one of the most important small bands in jazz. The same year, Kelly recorded Kelly Blue for Riverside. The album's critical notices and popularity combined with his Davis exposure to bring Kelly general recognition. Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb, his section mates from Davis's group, round out the rhythm section. Nat Adderley, Benny Golson and Bobby Jaspar join for two memorable tracks. Throughout, Kelly cultivates the blues atmosphere that makes the collection one of his finest.

Bill Evans Trio/Waltz For Debby: This is the second of two Riverside albums made up of selections recorded by the classic Bill Evans, Scott LaFaro, and Paul Motian trio at their legendary live recording session of June 25, 1961. The dozen chosen performances were subdivided to enable the first album released to feature LaFaro--who died in an auto accident just ten days after recording. Thus this second collection can fairly be said to present a more typical overview of this remarkable unit at work.

Wes Montgomery/Full House: Recorded during an actual performance at Tsubo in Berkeley, California on June 25, 1962, and released on the Riverside label, the blistering performances showcased Wes's guitar with the top-notch support of Miles Davis's rhythm section. Featuring Johnny Griffin, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers & Jimmy Cobb, this recording shows how Wes Montgomery profoundly influenced & permanently changed virtually every jazz guitarist thereafter.

Bud Powell/The Scene Changes: Recorded in 1958 for Blue Note Records with Paul Chambers and Art Taylor, The Scene Changes is one of Bud Powell's finest recordings, featuring Powell at the peak of his powers. In prime form, playing one brilliant solo after another, this is a classic jazz trio album by one of the great jazz pianists of all time.

Lee Morgan/Sidewinder: Recorded at Van Gelder Studio in 1963 and released on Blue Note, The Sidewinder was a runaway hit that reached number 25 on the Billboard chart. The title track, now a jazz standard, is one of the most influential recordings in soul jazz. All five tracks were written by Morgan and the album features respected tenor sax player Joe Henderson.

The Oscar Peterson Trio/We Get Requests: This 1964 studio session released on the Verve label features the Peterson trio with bassist Ray Brown and Ed Thigpen, a group that had been together for five years by then and performed like a well-oiled machine. The repertoire is mostly pop songs of the day, including bossa nova tunes and film themes, and the treatments are fairly brief, with emphasis placed squarely on the melodies. Even in their lightest moments, though, the group demonstrates some of the qualities that made it among the most influential piano trios in jazz, a group that could generate tremendous rhythmic energy and a sense of developing musical detail.

Jazz masterpiece collection:
The reissue of historical music masterpieces by ESOTERIC has attracted a lot of attention, both for its uncompromising commitment to recreating the original master sound, and for using hybrid Super Audio CD (SACD) technology to improve sound quality.

These new audio versions feature ESOTERIC’s proprietary re-mastering process to achieve the highest level of sound quality.

ESOTERIC equipment used for re-mastering:
The criterion of re-mastering is to faithfully capture the quality of the original master. Esoteric's flag ship D/A/ converters, model D-o1VU, Rubidium master clock generator model G-0Rb and Esoteric Mexcel interconnect cables and power cords were all used for this re-mastering session. This combination of highly advanced technology greatly contributed to capturing the high quality sound of the original master.

Experience by yourself… Experience the legendary performance in this new Super Audio CD/CD format. Not only for new followers, but also for well experienced followers of these recorded materials. All will be equally impressed by the “soul” hidden within the notes, but never before found in previously released recordings in any format.
