Monterey Jazz Festival Records Release 2nd Collection of Never-Before-Heard Live Recordings
(Published: August 05, 2008)

In its second full slate of archival releases, Monterey Jazz Festival Records, an imprint of Concord Music Group, has released a new series of never-before-heard concert performances by jazz icons: Art Blakey, Dave Brubeck, Shirley Horn, Tito Puente, Cal Tjader and classic blues singer Jimmy Witherspoon.

The new series features the following 6 releases, available now on CD and digitally:

Art Blakey and the Giants of Jazz - Live at the Monterey 1972 Jazz Festival
Dave Brubeck - 50 Years of Dave Brubeck: Live at the Monterey Jazz Festival 1958- 2007
Shirley Horn - Live at the 1994 Monterey Jazz Festival
Tito Puente & His Orchestra - Live at the 1977 Monterey Jazz Festival
Cal Tjader - The Best of Cal Tjader: Live at the Monterey Jazz Festival, 1958-1980
Jimmy Witherspoon featuring Robben Ford - Live at the 1972 Monterey Jazz Festival

The MJF record label was founded in 2007 in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Monterey Jazz Festival. It made its debut with a remarkable series of historic Live-at- Monterey CDs, rolled out shortly before the September festival, including recordings of legendary artists such as Louis Armstrong & His All Stars (recorded in '58), Miles Davis Quintet ('63) and Thelonious Monk Quartet ('64), with all proceeds from recordings going to Monterey Jazz Festival-supported jazz education programs.

"We're not going to be stuck in a jazz time warp. We're excited to deliver important historical music, as well as assemble special projects and all-star ensembles to debut at the festival each year." - Label general manager Jason Olaine
