HQ 180g Audiophile Double LP!
First Time Ever on Vinyl!
Mastering for Vinyl & Lacuer Cutting by Bernie Grundman!

For the first time ever, the seminal 1994 Criss Cross album from the Mark Turner Quintet is now available on 180g audiophile double vinyl. Yam Yam was recorded on December 12, 1994 at RPM Studio in New York City. This recording features Mark Turner (tenor sax), Kurt Rosenwinkel (guitar), Brad Mehldau (piano), Larry Grenadier (bass) and Jorge Rossy (drums).

"The history of jazz is littered with tragically foreshortened careers, and we make very much of them, possibly reveling a little too ghoulishly in early death, bad personal habits and sheer-bad-luck accidents. Much less is made of the near-misses. In 2008, saxophonist Mark Turner came close to severing two fingers while cutting firewood at home. Wind players more often fear oral or dental injuries, but Turner's mishap threatened the end of his playing career. It may seem strange to say that few men would have adapted better to such an eventuality." -Brian Morton (2021), music writer, co-author of The Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings
