Record of the Month

Every month we choose a new record to highlight from our catalog and offer it up for half price. Maybe you're tight on cash, or need an extra nudge to check out a record from a new artist. Either way, it's a great way to add some amazing records to your collection without breaking the bank.

May's Record of the Month is Odyssey by James Blood Ulmer.

Odyssey stands as James Blood Ulmer’s signature masterpiece, the purest and most accessible showcase for his bold, genre-clashing guitar vision. With minimal trio accompaniment - only drummer Warren Benbow and violinist Charles Burnham - Ulmer’s guitar is always the meat of the ensemble, especially since his unique tuning (developed for this album) allows him to cover bass parts as well as guitar leads. AllMusic’s Steve Huey calls it “not only Ulmer’s finest album, but a certified classic of the modern jazz avant-garde.” Now Odyssey finally gets the audiophile treatment it deserves, in the form of a double LP, mastered at 45RPM from original analog tapes by Bernie Grundman, pressed on 180gram vinyl at Pallas in Germany, and housed in Stoughton case-wrapped jacket. Numbered, Limited Edition of 2000 Copies.
