Robert Glasper, Snarky Puppy and Miles Davis are all featured this year
A number of special jazz releases are being lined up for Record Store Day – a celebration of vinyl celebrated globally on Saturday April 21.
From New York, Snarky Puppy will issue a previously unreleased bonus track called ‘Sharktank’ from their Grammy-award winning ‘Culcha Vulcha’ project while there’s two performances by the Wynton Marsalis Septet at different Lincoln At Jazz Center annual galas – the project in support of the centre’s education programs. This includes a 2003 rendition of ‘Night Life’ featuring Willie Nelson and a 2006 take on ‘I’m Gonna Find Another You’ with John Mayer.
There’s a set of Robert Glasper Remixes from his ‘Artscience’ project featuring cameos by Don Cheadle, Talib Kweli, Alex Isley, and Iman Omari.
Van Morrison will release an alternative version of ‘Moondance’ while there’s vintage recordings from Thelonious Monk and Sun Ra and most excitingly, previously unheard music from Miles Davis! More on that HERE.
