We couldn’t be more excited about our upcoming jazz reissues. One of which, Criss-Cross, is now shipping early from our ORG Music web store.
1963’s Criss-Cross served as Thelonious Monk’s second recording for Columbia Records following Monk’s Dream which was issued earlier the same year. Produced by Teo Macero, the singular pianist is joined on the first-rate 8-song endeavor by the likes of Charlie Rouse (tenor saxophone), John Ore (bass) and Frankie Dunlop (drums). The album has truly never sounded better than on this 180gram pressing, which was mastered from original analog tapes by Bernie Grundman and pressed on audiophile-grade vinyl. Limited to 2,000 units worldwide, each copy is individually numbered with a gold-foil stamp. Records hit the shelves at fine record stores everywhere on 12/23. You can order them now here.
Art Farmer and Jim Hall had a regular group for a time in the ’60s but (except for one occasion) had not played together since, until this 1978 LP. Since Farmer and Hall have very complementary styles, it is little surprise that this set is a complete success. Now this classic record gets ORG Music’s audiophile treatment with this 180gram double LP 45RPM reissue, mastered from original tapes by Bernie Grundman and pressed at Pallas in Germany. Each copy of this limited edition release is individually numbered with a gold-foil stamp on the back of the case-wrapped Stoughton gatefold jacket. Pre-order here.
Science Fiction was Ornette Coleman’s creative rebirth, a stunningly inventive and appropriately alien-sounding blast of manic energy. Coleman pulls out all the stops, working with a variety of different lineups and cramming the record full of fresh ideas and memorable themes. This essential edition was mastered from original analog tapes by Bernie Grundman Mastering Studios, and pressed on 180gram audiophile-grade vinyl at Pallas Group in Germany. Each copy of this limited edition release is individually numbered with a gold foil-stamp. Pre-order here.
