P.E. Hewitt Winter Winds Anthology Out Today!

Now-Again | Apr. 6, 2010 | News |

Today’s the release date for our P.E. Hewitt Winter Winds The Complete Works: 1968-70 anthology. Dusted Magazine had this to say:

“This reissue is gorgeously presented, with a detailed booklet, and each album given its own facsimile disc. Included in the booklet is a recent interview with Hewitt that reveals an adventurous life lived in the years since Winter Winds. It also reveals that he has made more music. I, for one, would love to hear it.”

Now-Again | Mar. 31, 2010 | News |

Yesterday, we teamed up with Stones Throw to present our Weird Jazz Afternoon at Palate Food + Wine in Glendale – in honor of our P.E. Hewitt anthology, out everywhere tomorrow, April 6th. “Weird” was right – jazz from Ethiopia, Finland, France, India and, of course, the USA – spun by Egon, J.Rocc and Palate’s wine guru (and weird jazz bassist) Steve Goldun as the chef’s served up pulled pork sandwiches, Easter lamb and everyone poured some OE alongside some nice Burgundies.

PE Hewitt Anthology Out Now (grab a free MP3 now!).

Now-Again | Mar. 29, 2010 | News |

We’re pre-releasing P.E. Hewitt Winter Winds The Complete Works: 1968-70. The anthology is out worldwide in all formats on April 6th.

P.E. Hewitt’s was but 16 years old when he recorded and released – in a press of 50 copies – his debut album Jawbones. By the time he sold through the 100 copies of this third, Winter Winds, he was approaching the ripe-age of 20. The three albums he and his young compatriots wrote, recorded, pressed and – if you can call it that – distributed, are three of the rarest damn-good 70s jazz albums you could ever hope to come across. That’s a subtle, but important distinction. There are many rare jazz albums in every imaginable subgenre – funk, free, fusion… But Hewitt’s three albums were so damn-good that neither micro presses nor forty years of silence could suppress their reemergence.

We decided against compiling a “best of” anthology out of respect for Hewitt’s monstrous achievements and because, well, these albums are so damn-good. Instead, on offer is a three album hard-box set with directly reissues of the albums in thick “tip on” sleeves. CD box set mimics the vinyl format, but with CDs packaged as “mini LPs” in the hard box. Also included is an extensive booklet which includes the original liner notes from the albums, an essay on Hewitt and his career, a thorough interview with Hewitt by Egon and Groove Merchant “Cool” Chris Veltri, and never before seen photos.
