    Dave has been a huge influence in Jazz. That white dude that wowed the scene back then with odd-time compositions that was unheard of. But he never stood down.. instead he had an amazing career and some marvelous records. Take Five, his classic (in odd-time offcourse) stands as a milestone. Dave really showed me that Jazz indeed is the teacher.

    For Jazz LP Collectors on a budget, this label is a dream! Lots and lots of classic albums for inexpensive prices. I own a few of their 80's pressings and a few of their 00's pressings, both vinyl, and they all sound terrific. A total bargain compared to purchasing audiophile/high-end pressings or originals.
