Various – Ready Or Not 2
READY OR NOT, here we come with the second volume of the critically acclaimed collection of lost Canadian jazz treasures from the CBC archives. During the 60s and 70s, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation sought out. the finest jazz musicians in Canada and recorded them improvising live in a small combo setting to document their work for posterity. A few vinyl LPs of each session were pressed up but most this incredible music has been gathering dust in the CBC archive for more than 30 years.
Do Right Music went straight to the source and secured the rights from CBC to re-release these incredible overlooked recordings, tracked down the original analog session tapes and remastered the recordings to state-of-the-art standards. The first READY OR NOT collection drew critical raves in the UK, Europe, Japan and in Canada where Coda’s associate publisher Daryl Angier devoted an entire editorial page in the March 2006 issue of the venerable jazz journal to shouting it’s praise.
