CTI 50th Anniversary Special Collection (40 Albums, 2017) [Official Digital Download 24bit/192kHz]


2017.12.6 Release
1967年、プロデューサーのクリード・テイラーが、A&Mレーベルで“CTI”(Creed Taylor Issue)というプロジェクトを立ち上げ、その後1970年にテイラーは独立して自身のレーベル“CTI”(Creed Taylor Inc.)を設立する。そしてジャズにR&B、ポップス、クラシック、ブラジル音楽など様々な音楽の要素を融合させたサウンドを展開し、それまでのジャズの“枠”を超越したアプローチで、今日“フュージョン”と呼ばれる音楽の基本スタイルを作り上げて、ジャズという音楽の可能性を大きく広げていった。さらに1971年には、よりR&B色の強い兄弟レーベル“Kudu”を設立して、その音楽性はさらに広がっていった。今年2017年は、最初のCTIの設立から50周年となる。そこでCTI/Kuduの名作の中から、通好みのレアな、だが内容の濃い作品が再リリースされる。今聴いても新鮮で、創造力溢れる作品たちだ。CTIの音楽は、今なお輝きを放ち続けている。

CTI Records (Creed Taylor Incorporated) is a jazz record label founded in 1967 by Creed Taylor. CTI was a subsidiary of A&M before becoming independent in 1970. Its first album was A Day in the Life by guitarist Wes Montgomery in 1967 Its roster included George Benson, Ron Carter, Eumir Deodato, Astrud Gilberto, Freddie Hubbard, Bob James, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Hubert Laws, Stanley Turrentine, and Walter Wanderley,

Kudu Records was started in 1971 and concentrated on soul jazz with albums by Joe Beck, Hank Crawford, Grant Green, Idris Muhammad, Esther Phillips, Johnny “Hammond” Smith, Lonnie Smith, and Grover Washington Jr.

Salvation Records was a subsidiary label which released 10 albums during its existence, including music by Airto, Roland Hanna, Faith Howard, New York Jazz Quartet, Johnny “Hammond” Smith, and Gábor Szabó

Greenestreet, which (released albums by Jack Wilkins, Claudio Roditi, Les McCann) and Three Brothers (with albums by The Clams, Lou Christie, Duke Jones, and Cassandra Morgan) were short-lived labels affiliated with CTI.

Don Sebesky created many of the arrangements for CTI and its subsidiary labels. He was later joined by Bob James and David Matthews in the mid-1970s. Taylor used Van Gelder Studios in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, with Rudy Van Gelder engineering nearly all sessions until the later years of the label. Sessions included Ron Carter, Eric Gale, Herbie Hancock, Bob James, Richard Tee, Billy Cobham, Jack DeJohnette, Steve Gadd, Idris Muhammad, and Harvey Mason.

CTI was commercially successful with certain albums well-received by critics. CTI’s best-selling album was Deodato’s Prelude, which reached No. 3 on the US Billboard albums chart in 1973. A single from the album, “Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001)”, peaked at No. 2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and No. 7 in the UK. Other successful singles were Bob James’ “Feel Like Making Love” and “Westchester Lady”, Idris Muhammad’s “Could Heaven Ever Be Like This”, and Esther Phillips’ “What a Diff’rence a Day Makes”, a disco hit.

Successful album releases included Grover Washington, Jr.’s Mister Magic and Feels So Good (both reaching No. 10 in 1975), Esther Phillips’ What a Diff’rence a Day Makes (reaching No. 32 in 1975), and Bob James’ BJ4 (reaching No. 38 in 1977).

Taylor founded Impulse! and worked for Verve where he earned the reputation as a respected producer of jazz albums. His productions for CTI during the 1990s shared a warm ambiance that helped to establish smooth jazz as a commercially viable musical genre. CTI also became known for its striking album sleeve designs, most of them with images by photographer Pete Turner.[2][3]

In 1978, CTI filed for bankruptcy, but the label remained active until 1984, releasing studio albums by Ray Barretto, Urszula Dudziak, Jim Hall, Roland Hanna, Nina Simone, and the all-star studio band Fuse One

Taylor restructured CTI in 1989, resuming his partnership with Van Gelder and Turner in June 1989 when recording the all-star session for Rhythmstick, an ambitious album released on vinyl, CD, VHS, and LaserDisc in 1990. Many young musicians were signed to the label, such as Charles Fambrough, Jim Beard, Ted Rosenthal, Bill O’Connell, Donald Harrison, Steve Laury, and Jurgen Friedrich, as well as veteran guitarist Larry Coryell, who teamed with arranger Don Sebesky on the best-selling Fallen Angel album, which reached No. 18 in the Billboard Top Contemporary Jazz Albums Chart in 1993.[4]

CTI’s post-A&M Records catalog (albums released between 1970 and 1979) is owned by Sony and distributed by Masterworks Jazz in the U.S. King Records handles the rights for exclusive distribution in Japan. Grover Washington, Jr.’s Kudu albums have been re-issued by Motown and its MoJazz imprint but are part of Universal Classics & Jazz. Bob James owns the four albums he recorded four CTI. Seawind also owns their back catalog of CTI releases. CTI’s A&M-subsidiary releases are distributed by Verve, a division of Universal Music Group.

In 2009, Taylor produced a reissue series of twenty CTI titles remastered by Van Gelder for release on SHM-CD format in Japan. New liner notes were provided by Ira Gitler, Arnaldo DeSouteiro, and Doug Payne. Other reissue series came out in December 2013 (including forty titles released on Blu-spec CD format) and in December 2017 with more forty titles on the CTI 50th Anniversary Collection.
