    features the very best of those sessions, all in one place.

    Free Jazz

    Mastered from the Original Master Tapes


    Features a Double Quartet: One Band in Each Stereo Channel with Two Simultaneously Playing Rhythm Sections


    Features Don Cherry, Scott LaFaro, Eric Dolphy, Charlie Haden, Freddie Hubbard Among Other Musicians


    Modern improvisational jazz starts here. With one quartet placed in the left stereo channel and another situated in the right, Free Jazz unloads with two simultaneously playing rhythm sections and a 37-minute-plus title cut devised entirely on the spot.


    Distinctive from the copycat attempts that followed, this 1960 magnum opus claims melody and harmony, solidifying Ornette Coleman's reputation as a compositional genius. Of course, the presence of Don Cherry, Scott LaFaro, Billy Higgins in the left channel and Coleman, Freddie Hubbard, Charlie Haden, and Ed Blackwell in the right doesn't hurt.


    Mastered from the original master tapes, ORG Music's analog edition has turned this classic into an audiophile spectacular. Due to the presentation of the recording in two distinct stereo channels, this album supremely benefits from the label's mastering efforts and decision to expand the music into wider grooves. Prepare for a mind-blowing experience.

    Pressed On 180 Gram Audiophile-Grade Vinyl At Pallas Group In Germany


    Limited Edition Of 2,000 Copies


    Features Liner Notes From Charles Mingus Himself


    Mingus Dynasty was recorded in 1959, alongside its

    the musicians as they'd never been challenged before.
    The results speak for themselves. This vinyl reissue

    Grundman, pressed on 180gram vinyl at Pallas in
    Germany, and is limited to 2,000 units worldwide. The
    jacket includes liner notes from Mingus himself.

    Sun Ra's orchestra was at its most radical during this period, alternating simple chants with very outside playing and dense ensembles. While the sidemen include such notables as Marshall Allen and Danny Davis on altos, baritonist Pat Patrick, John Gilmore on tenor, bassist Ronnie Boykins and percussionist Clifford Jarvis, most of the other players in the 15-piece band (such as trumpeters Ahk Tal Ebah and Kwame Hadi) have slipped back into obscurity.

    As Scott Yanow puts it in his five-star review for

    1963. The album is coming back to vinyl for the first

    Chet is Back!

    Mastered from the Original Tapes and Stunning Audiophile-Grade Sonics: You Will Not Hear a Better Pressing!


    Chet is back! And how. In a career filled with ups and downs, Chet Baker sounds divine on this 1962 set of bop-driven tunes and elegant standards cut in Italy after the trumpeter's two-year hiatus from recording. Reason for its superiority owes to a sextet anchored by burgeoning, young European musicians such as saxophonist Bobby Jaspar, pianist Amedeo Tommasi, guitarist Rene Thomas, and bassist Benoit Quersin.


    Compositionally, ballads (including These Foolish Things and the only new composition, Ballata In Forma Di Blues) are tucked in between a surfeit of engaging, uptempo pieces. Yet the most staggering revelation here, aside from the fact that, no exaggeration, Chet Is Back! might contain the cool musician's most gorgeous playing, is the version of Over the Rainbow, given a reading that encapsulates the classic songs longing, hope, and beauty. Noteworthy, too, are Jaspar's statement-making performances.


    Now, an even 50 years after its original release, Chet Is Back! benefits from the audiophile-quality sound it's always deserved courtesy of ORG Music and being mastered from the original master tapes. Few, if any, audiophile pressings of Baker's music match the tones and timbres present on this astoundingly transparent reissue. It's what jazz is all about.

    Big Blues

    Pressed On 180-Gram Audiophile-Grade LPs At Pallas Group In Germany


    Mastered From Original Analog Tapes By Bernie Grundman Mastering Studios


    Recorded At Electric Lady Studios In New York City On February 2 & 3, 1978


    Flugelhornist Art Farmer and guitarist Jim Hall had a regular group for a time in the mid-'60s but (except for one occasion) had not played together since, until this 1978 LP. This is an unusual effort for CTI in that it is a quintet set without added horns, strings or keyboards. Farmer and Hall are joined by vibraphonist Mike Mainieri, bassist Michael Moore and drummer Steve Gadd for two standards, the title cut and a jazz adaptation of a piece by Ravel. Since Farmer and Hall have long had very complementary styles (both being
    lyrical, harmonically advanced and thoughtful in their improvisations), it is little surprise that this set is a complete success.


    Now this classic recording gets ORG Music's audiophile treatment with this 180-gram vinyl reissue, mastered from original analog tapes by Bernie Grundman and pressed at Pallas Group in Germany.

    The rare opportunity to hear Milt Jackson step out

    and partner Ray Charles, in addition to manning the
    88s, blow on the alto saxophone for two numbers,

    portrays the 1957 collaboration within a huge, naturally
    vibrant soundstage. Mastered from the original master

    bare the relaxed, bluesy, often-boppish jazz on display

Many of these songs find Rollins utilizing the Latin rhythms of Candido and, on the calypso Brownskin Girl, a vocal chorus interacts with the group.

    Let My Children Hear Music

    Mingus Deemed His 1972 Effort The Best Album I Have Ever Made


    Iconic Bassist/Composer Pairs With a Riveting Orchestra


    Mastered from the Original Analog Master Tapes by Bernie Grundman: Exceptional Sound Allows You to Savor the Wowing Solos and Moody Textures


    Charles Mingus called this late-period 1972 set "the best album I have ever made." Even in the context of the giant's other masterpieces, it's hard to argue with that statement. Let My Children Hear Music is that kind of great.


    A large-ensemble effort featuring enterprising arrangements, the record surrounds the bassist/composer with a tremendous orchestra and swirling, glorious structures bejeweled with volleying horns, elaborate solos, and introspective moodiness. The most valuable buried treasure in Mingus' distinguished catalog? Hear the songs for yourself, and decide. ORG Music, however, has made it much easier to arrive at an answer.


    Why? The sound on this 180 gram 45RPM 2LP pressing, mastered from the original analog master tapes by Bernie Grundman, practically invites you into the studio. Given proper room, dimensions, and imaging, the instruments and the music they combine to produce, further exposes Mingus' genius and reminds us all once again why sonic transparency equates to emotional realism and soulful revelation. What a record.

    This 1962 Record Marks Rollins' Return After Taking a Voluntary Break to Refine His Playing


    How badly did Sonny Rollins want to refine his playing? The saxophonist shocked the world in 1959 and took a break, returning in 1962 with this splendiferous set, named after the Williamsburg Bridge, where he practiced by himself. He's paired here with guitarist Jim Hall, whose communicative lines, along with Rollins' esteemed solos and melancholy patterns, gives The Bridge lofty status. The quartet tackles both originals and standards such as Billie Holiday's God Bless the Child and Cole Porter's You Do Something to Me, turning up aces every time.


    Mastered from the original master tapes, ORG Music's 180 gram LP presents this Bluebird/RCA classic in the finest analog sound it's ever known. Everything from each of Rollins' dip-and-dive patterns to the patter of Ben Riley's drums is heard with extreme detail and range.

    Ranked #246 on Rolling Stone's List of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time


    Quartet Includes Don Cherry and Charlie Haden


    Mastered from the Original Master Tapes on 180 Gram Vinyl


    1959's landscape-shifting The Shape of Jazz to Come is true to its title. Switching from tenor to alto sax, Ornette Coleman creates free jazz, a language where chords structures are absent and harmony gives way to improvisational whims. The Atlantic set finds Coleman collaborating with Don Cherry, Charlie Haden, and Billy Higgins in making a masterful work free of any identifiable chord structures. Nonetheless, melodies remain, as do engrossing repetitions of main themes.


    ORG Music brings the breakthrough arrangements and magnificent colors to life in a way no one's experienced since the LP was recorded. Mastered from the original master tapes, this life-changing music has never sounded so alive and dynamic. This is a must.

    Mastered from the Original Tapes and Stunning Audiophile-Grade Sonics: You Will Not Hear a Better Pressing!


    Chet is back! And how. In a career filled with ups and downs, Chet Baker sounds divine on this 1962 set of bop-driven tunes and elegant standards cut in Italy after the trumpeter's two-year hiatus from recording. Reason for its superiority owes to a sextet anchored by burgeoning, young European musicians such as saxophonist Bobby Jaspar, pianist Amedeo Tommasi, guitarist Rene Thomas, and bassist Benoit Quersin.


    Compositionally, ballads (including These Foolish Things and the only new composition, Ballata In Forma Di Blues) are tucked in between a surfeit of engaging, uptempo pieces. Yet the most staggering revelation here, aside from the fact that, no exaggeration, Chet Is Back! might contain the cool musician's most gorgeous playing, is the version of Over the Rainbow, given a reading that encapsulates the classic songs longing, hope, and beauty. Noteworthy, too, are Jaspar's statement-making performances.


    Now, an even 50 years after its original release, Chet Is Back! benefits from the audiophile-quality sound it's always deserved courtesy of ORG Music and being mastered from the original master tapes. Few, if any, audiophile pressings of Baker's music match the tones and timbres present on this astoundingly transparent reissue. It's what jazz is all about.

    The Man I Love


    Mastered From Original Analog Tapes By Bernie Grundman


    Pressed On Audiophile-Grade Vinyl At Pallas Group In Germany


    Recorded At Club Montmarte In Copenhagen, 1967


    Johnny Griffin had a reputation as the "world's fastest tenor." At
    this intense live date captured at Club Montmarte in Copenhagen
    in 1967, the saxophonist lives up to such a billing and more,
    attacking five compositions with dynamite energy and blinding
    speed. In addition, Griffin displays the warm and sensitive side
    he developed later in his career on a touching rendition of Duke
    Ellington's "Sophisticated Lady." Throughout, he's aided by
    a resolutely controlled and superbly dynamic rhythm section
    comprised of bassist Niels Pederson and drummer Albert "Tootie"
    Heath, who, with pianist Kenny Drew, match Griffin's red-hot
    bravado. This is a hard-bop set no one will want to be without.


    Originally released by the UK label Black Lion, an imprint that
    specialized in resurrecting rare gems from US jazz and blues
    legends, The Man I Love is on par with Griffin's finest studio
    outings for Blue Note and a can't-miss opportunity for collectors
    and enthusiasts to get closer to the man and his music.
    Orchestrated by ORG Music, this historical reissue is afforded the
    ultimate in audiophile production standards, resulting in sonics
    and presentation befitting the museum-like worth of this record's
    existence.

    Bags And Trane

    Mastered from the Original Master Tapes


    The Only Full-Album Collaboration Between Iconic Vibraphonist and Definitive Saxophonist


    Featuring Pianist Hank Jones, Bassist Paul Chambers, and Drummer Connie Kay


    It's a shame more classic hard-boppers weren't unified for multiple collaborations. Vibraphonist Milt Jackson and saxophone virtuoso John Coltrane recorded just once together, and this 1959 date makes one wish they reunited for several return engagements. Lighthearted, upbeat, and joyously fluid, Bags & Trane plays like a private after-hours session of friends hanging back and toying with the music.


    In collaborating with pianist Hank Jones, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Connie Kay, the headliners go for broke, expanding the parameters of two Jackson originals as well as three standards, including Dizzy Gillespie's Be-Bop and the staple The Night We Called It a Day. Upbeat tempos and spirited interplay pulses throughout.


    Mastered from the original master tapes, ORG Music's reissue presents this heralded release in exacting sound, with the instruments given full range and true-to-life imaging that takes you right into New York City's Atlantic Recording Studios when the pieces were recorded in January 1959. What a delight!

    Big Blues


    Pressed on Two 180gram Audiophile-Grade LPs at
    Pallas Group in Germany


    Mastered from Original Analog Tapes at 45RPM by
    Bernie Grundman Mastering Studios


    Limited, Numbered Edition of 1,500 Copies


    Housed in a Stoughton Case-Wrapped Gatefold
    Jacket

    Previously Out of Press for Over 3 Decades


    Flugelhornist Art Farmer and guitarist Jim Hall had a
    regular group for a time in the mid-'60s but (except
    for one occasion) had not played together since, until
    this 1978 LP. This is an unusual effort for CTI in that
    it is a quintet set without added horns, strings or
    keyboards. Farmer and Hall are joined by vibraphonist
    Mike Mainieri, bassist Michael Moore and drummer
    Steve Gadd for two standards, the title cut and a jazz
    adaptation of a piece by Ravel. Since Farmer and Hall
    have long had very complementary styles (both being
    lyrical, harmonically advanced and thoughtful in their
    improvisations), it is little surprise that this set is a
    complete success.


    Now this classic recording gets ORG Music's
    audiophile treatment with this 180gram double LP
    45RPM reissue, mastered from original analog tapes
    by Bernie Grundman and pressed at Pallas Group in
    Germany. Each copy of this limited edition release will
    be individually numbered with a gold foil-stamp.
