Verve Remixed, Again

Last year’s Verve Remixed-the album that answered the question “Would anybody buy a CD of moldy jazz tracks redefined by today’s hottest DJs?” with a loud and proud “Hell yes!”-spun in the offices of the mighty JT for weeks. We only took it out to play Verve Unmixed, the CD that compiled all the original tracks the DJs had spun upside down and inside out on the remix album. But eventually we had to stop listening to both because, well, we receive a heck of a lot of CDs every day and need to hear them too if we’re going to put out a magazine about jazz and all.

Now, at least for a little while, we can once again listen to remixed Verve tracks and not necessarily feel like we’re neglecting that stack of CIMP releases in the corner-because Verve Remixed 2 arrived in the mail a couple days ago, along with Verve Unmixed 2. You’ll be able to buy them both on September 9. And Remixed 2 will be available on vinyl LP as well as CD, in case you like it like that.
