Release Date:10/20/2017;Notes:LP version. Gatefold sleeve. Wewantsounds present a reissue of Harold Land's A New Shade Of Blue, originally released in 1971. Following the highly-acclaimed release of Feeling Good (WWSCD 005CD/WWSLP 005LP, 2017) and Inner Peace (WWSCD 007CD/ WWSLP 007LP, 2017) compilations, Wewantsounds present the reissue of two superb classic albums as the first releases in their Mainstream Records Original Classics series: A New Shade Of Blue, presented here, and Buddy Terry's 1971 album Awareness (WWSCD 009CD/WWSLP 009LP). Wewantsounds has gone back to the original negative to reconstruct the original artworks and will add many jaw dropping never-seen photo sessions Recorded in 1971, this beautiful Harold Land record produced by Bob Shad, is nothing but a Harold Land-Bobby Hutcherson quintet album in disguise. The quintet recorded a handful of marvelous albums between 1967 and 1971, mainly under the Bobby Hutcherson name on Blue Note, but they recorded one album on Chess and two for Mainstream Records. A New Shade Of Blue, recorded in Los Angeles where the quintet was based, is one of their best albums and has never been reissued outside of Japan. Featuring a superb line up comprising Buster Williams on bass and Billy Hart on drums - the rhythm section of Herbie Hancock's Mwandishi (1971) sextet - the session is augmented by Bill Henderson on piano and Fender Rhodes and Mtume on percussion. Together they create a superb soundscape featuring the quintet's trademark sound, both spiritual and serene, with Land's unmistakable sax playing and Bobby Hutcherson's modal touch. The highlight of the album is the long hypnotic track "Mtume", a deep, slow burner displaying the group's fantastic interplay. Includes unissued session photos taken by LA photographer Dick Sanders and new liner notes by radio DJ and renowned record digger, Sam Barbatano (Sunday Jazz, KTRU Houston). CD version includes a bonus track, a beautiful eight-minute outtake "Dark Mood" briefly issued in 1974 on a Mainstream compilation.;Track List:1. A New Shade of Blue;2. Mtume;3. Ode to Angela;4. De-Liberation;5. Short Subject;6. Dark Mood (Bonus Track)
