Welcome to a new Soul & Jazz music mix and with a tribute mix to Joe Sample (The Crusaders), who passed a couple of days ago. Another issue is the legendary Prestige Records Label. In the mix you can listen to The Rolling Stones, Kate Bush, new music from Aphex Twin, Raury, Renegades of Jazz and a floor killer track by Shakleton. What more is needed to start in the weekend.
Prestige Records was a record label, founded by Bob Weinstock in New York and had his best time in the 50s and 60s. For most of the 1950s and 1960s, the great recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder was responsible for the recordings. Prestige Records contains a significant number of jazz classics, among other things: Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Thelonious Monk and many others. The main characteristic was that an album normally contains of 5 tracks. Without recording trial or a screen test, Weinstock was able to produce and to publish faster. Still he used failed tapes and published nearly everything. That´s the reason why Prestige Records has nearly less alternative takes. If you are interest in Jazz, have a look on records from Prestige Records.
