Verve By Request Series — Monthly releases from Verve Label Group's jazz catalog!
Handpicked rarities and fan favorites include out-of-print titles and first-ever vinyl pressings
Verve Records/UMe and Third Man Records have partnered to resurrect the popular reissue series, Verve By Request, with a vinyl twist. Focusing on rare gems and fan-requested jazz albums from the Verve Label Group's stable of iconic labels, the series will offer two titles per month — each hand-picked by Verve and Third Man Records. The records will include both long-out-of-print titles from the vault as well as the first-ever vinyl pressings for albums released in the '90s and aughts that were only originally released on CD.
Albums will be newly remastered from original analog sources, when available, and pressed on 180-gram at Third Man Record Pressings in Detroit.
By 1970, pianist Ahmad Jamal's style had changed a bit since the 1950s, becoming denser and more adventurous while still retaining his musical identity and signature elegance. Jamal's trio — bassist Jamil Nasser (whose double-timing lines are sometimes furious) and drummer Frank Gant — deliver intriguing performances, showing that Jamal was continuing to evolve.
