Usually released as vinyl albums, but the Soho Scene 59-60 Jazz Goes Mod box set goes down the CD route.

A new release available to pre-order right now, this is a four-disc set from Rhythm and Blues Records containing material you might already own and some you might not.

It all depends if you have invested in the previous vinyl releases. This set covers 1959 and 1960 and there was a vinyl release some tine back covering the 1960 output, which seems to be the same as the tracks on this disc. But as far as I can see, there hasn’t been a 1959 set, so that should be all-new.

The overall set promises to pit ‘Britain’s finest jazz tracks of 1959-1960’ against ‘the very best music coming out of the States at the same time’, showing that British modernists could at last stand tall among jazz music’s giants.

Soho Scene 59-60 Jazz Goes Mod has been put together by Nick Duckett and sleeve notes are the work of Paul ‘Smiler’ Anderson. It lands on 30th November 2018 and is available to pre-order now. the four-disc set costs £20.73. Track listed below.
