"In preparing these hi def remasters, we were very conscientious about maintaining the feel of the original releases while adding a previously unattainable transparency and depth. It now sounds like you've set up your chaise lounge right in the middle of Rudy Van Gelder's studio!" - Blue Note President, Don Was.
Larry Young's Unity was a revolutionary masterpiece. The album has been deemed by critics and fans as one of jazz's best organ recordings of all time. This first-rate performance features legendary sidemen Woody Shaw, Joe Henderson and Elvin Jones. Young's electrifying delivery not only challenged but redefined any preconceived notions. The ensemble's chemistry is undeniable. Includes the high energy "Zoltan," the widely popular "Softly, As in a Morning Sunrise" and a riveting rendition of "Monk's Dream." An undeniable classic for any music lover.
