Concord Music Group will reissue Vince Guaraldi Trio’s Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus, Miles Davis’ (feat. Sonny Rollins) Dig, Wes Montgomery’s Boss Guitar, Chet Baker Sings It Could Happen to You and Bill Evans Trio’s Waltz for Debby on Sept. 28.
Joe Tarantino took the 24-bit remastering duties for all five albums.
Besides an amplified, more complete sound upgrade, each disc will be available with heftier liner notes.
Vince Guaraldi Trio – Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus
This bossanova record originally appeared in Spring 1962, the remastered version includes four previously unreleased songs (“Manhã de Carnaval,” “O Nosso Amor,” “Felicidade” and “Cast Your Fate to the Wind”).
Miles Davis feat. Sonny Rollins – Dig
American jazz historian calls the pairing of Davis and Rollins “one of the most empathetic and powerfully moving duos in jazz” in the liner notes. Two bonus tracks, “My Old Flame” and “Conception,” make good on the re-release.
Wes Montgomery – Boss Guitar
Three additional tracks include alternate takes of “Besame Mucho,” “The Trick Bag” and “Fried Pies.”
Nick Phillips, Vice President of Catalog and Jazz A&R at Concord Music Group and producer of the series says, “Clearly the musicianship and the virtuosity that’s on display in Boss Guitar leaves no doubt as to why his guitar playing continues to be so influential.”
Chet Baker Sings: It Could Happen to You
The reissue of this 1958 album includes bonus tracks “While My Lady Sleeps,” “You Make Me Feel So Young,” “Everything Happens to Me” and “The More I See You.” Baker was only 29 when he recorded this album.
Bill Evans Trio – Waltz for Debby
The reissue includes different takes of “Waltz for Debby,” “Detour Ahead” and “My Romance.” Evans’ Gershwin cover “I Loves You Porgy.”
In this album, Evans “set a benchmark for the jazz piano trio format that has yet to be surpassed,” according to Phillips.
