Verve By Request Series

Handpicked rarities and fan favorites include out-of-print titles and first-ever vinyl pressings

Verve Records/UMe and Third Man Records have partnered to resurrect the popular reissue series, Verve By Request, with a vinyl twist. Focusing on rare gems and fan-requested jazz albums from the Verve Label Group’s stable of iconic labels, the series will offer two titles per month — each hand-picked by Verve and Third Man Records. The records will include both long-out-of-print titles from the vault as well as the first-ever vinyl pressings for albums released in the ’90s and aughts that were only originally released on CD.

Albums will be newly remastered from original analog sources, when available, and pressed on 180-gram at Third Man Record Pressings in Detroit.

This excellent 1965 album from the always versatile Lateef runs the gamut musically, from the Coltrane influenced “Semi-Octo” to soulful reads of standards from Hammerstein/Kern, Fats Waller and Erik Satie, and a beautifully rendered original “Bamboo Flute Blues.” Verve By Request Series features transfers from the analog tapes remastered on 180-gram vinyl.
