Jeremy Taylor: Reggae Interpretation of Kind of Blue LP

Pressed on blue vinyl. Vinyl only release!

In the spring of 1981 a group of reggae studio musicians from Jamaica gathered in New York City under the direction of Jeremy Taylor, a music professor at NYU at that time. The result was this Reggae Interpretation of Kind of Blue. Though he was primarily regarded as a world-class jazz musician and educator, Taylor had taken several trips to Jamaica to study reggae music with some of the best performers in the world.
Taylor took the most loved, well-known modern jazz album of all time and put it in the hands of reggae musicians. It was in this context that he felt his contemporaries would be able to fully understand what it was he saw in these players. Unfortunately, weeks after directing the sessions Taylor passed away in his Paris hotel room while on a speaking tour of Europe. A final mix of the album was never made and it was never released. Collectors have long spoken of this album and in the late '80s lo-fi cassette tapes of rough mixes circulated. No official release was ever issued until now. In early 2009, Secret Stash Records began working with the Taylor estate to finally release this album. After creating final mixes, dub versions of all the songs were also made by Secret Stash producers.
