2-CD SET

FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER ON A SINGLE SET!!!! THE STEREO & MONO VERSION
Plus 12 BONUS TRACKS

Presented here, both in its Stereo and Mono versions, is the complete classic album "Something Else", in which Cannonball – by thena member of the Miles Davis Sextet, as shown on our bonus tracks – was joined by his boss, Hank Jones, Sam Jones and the great Art Blakey. NAll five musicians shine on this album, which is one of the most celebrated in the history of jazz.

The Mono version appears here on CD for the first time ever. In the late 1950s, it was common for big labels to record performances simultaneously in Mono and Stereo, and then release both versions at the same time, with different reference numbers. This was explained at the time by the fact that Stereo was still a very recent innovation, and not everyone had sound systems capable of reproducing the new technology. The Stereo albums, thus, were slightly more expensive than their Mono counterparts. Over time, the Mono versions were condemned to oblivion, and only recently some music fans have begun to value these long forgotten masters, which capture classic performances from a different aural point of view. On the present release, both versions of this masterpiece can be compared.

“Allison’s Uncle,” which completes the session but was not included on the original album, survives only in its Stereo version. Further recordings of Cannonball and Miles together from the same year have been added here as a bonus, consisting of a complete studio date and their entire Newport Jazz Festival set.
