Rhino Releases Hommage A Nesuhi Tribute in Digital Download Formats

Back in November, I reported on a really great limited-edition boxset tribute to Nesuhi Ertegun-– the younger brother to Atlantic Records label founder Ahmet, and VP of the Jazz division of Atlantic from 1955-1967. Titled Hommage a Nesuhi, it is limited to 3,000 numbered copies. It is a collection of songs he produced, artists he signed and music inspired by his tenure at the label. It was a collection of some amazing artists including Ray Charles, Big Joe Turner, LaVern Baker and Hank Crawford.

While it appears that Rhino Handmade may still have some of the boxes available for sale from their website, on June 23rd, the label decided to make Hommage a Nesuhi available as a digital download from places like iTunes and Amazon.com.

To spread the word, Rhino has made available some online “listening parties” with a small sampling of tracks from the box set:

Listening Party Tracklist:

“Hard Times” by David “Fathead” Newman
“Doodlin'” by Ray Charles
“Empty Bed Blues” by LaVern Baker
“Day by Day” by Jimmy Scott
“Ain’t No Sunshine” by Rahsaan Roland Kirk

Click Here for the Listening Party where you can choose a format including QuickTime, Windows Media or Real Audio.

The album is available for download from Herbie Mann - Hommage à Nesuhi
