Masterpieces in deep/modal/ spiritual jazz from a teenaged wunderkind, recorded and released from 1968-1970.
The three lost albums by the Bay Area vibraphonist/ composer/arranger PE Hewitt. Packaged in a hard back box that includes exact reproductions of the three original albums and a 12-page booklet with extensive liner notes, photos, interview and annotation. TIP!
P.E. Hewitt 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 good that neither micro presses nor forty years of silence could
suppress their reemergence.
Now-Again decided against compiling a "best of" anthology out of respect for Hewitt's monstrous achievements. Thus, here's a three album box set - directly recreated as the albums were issued, down to their hand-painted covers. So also included is a 12-page 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.
