Branford Marsalis (on tenor and soprano) and his 1987 quartet (which also includes pianist Kenny Kirkland, bassist Delbert Felix and drummer Lewis Nash) stretch out on a wide repertoire during this generally fascinating set. Very much a chameleon for the date, Marsalis does close impressions of Wayne Shorter on "Yes and No," John Coltrane ("Crescent City"), Ben Webster (a warm version of "I Thought About You"), Ornette Coleman ("Broadway Falls") and even Jan Garbarek (on a long rendition of Coleman's "Lonely Woman"). Random Abstract also includes a jam on Kirkland's "LonJellis," a piece without chord changes. This is one of Branford Marsalis' most interesting (and somewhat unusual) recordings. ~ Scott Yanow

Columbia

Bruce Springsteen, Daft Punk, Electric Light Orchestra, Pharrell… Columbia Records boasts one of the most eclectic and star-studded music catalogues in existence, and is undoubtedly a huge supporter of Hi-Res audio. Founded all the way back in 1887, the company is now the oldest surviving brand name in recorded sound, and only the second to produce recorded records. Over 125 years later, it is safe to say that Columbia Records, now part of the Sony Music Group, has established itself a timeless icon in music.
