2008: not a good year for the economy, certain politicians, or the Detroit Lions. In the realm of reissues and historical releases, however, it was a surprisingly good year. A highly subjective and belated list follows, presented in alphabetical order:
Mosaic Records has posted information, including discographies, about new sets featuring Dave Liebman’s Pendelum group and some Helen Merrill jazz-vocal sides on their upcoming releases page, along with more details about the forthcoming early-1950s Oscar Peterson collection.
Jazz artists have occasionally revisited albums years or decades after their original release, sometimes re-recording them in their entirety.
