    Summary

    The three lost albums by the Bay Area vibraphonist/composer/arranger P.E. Hewitt will now be available as stand alone releases for the first time since Richard Nixon was in the White House.

    Masterpieces in deep/modal/spiritual jazz from a teenaged wunderkind, recorded and released from 1968-1970.

    P.E. Hewitt was but 16 years old when he recorded and released - in a pressing of 50 copies - his debut album Jawbones. By the time he sold through the 100 copies of this third, Winter Winds, he was approaching the ripe-age of 20. The three albums he and his young compatriots wrote, recorded, pressed and - if you can call it that - distributed, are three of the rarest damn-good 70s jazz albums you could ever hope to come across. That's a subtle, but important distinction. There are many rare jazz albums in every imaginable subgenre - funk, free, fusion...But Hewitt's three albums were so damn-good that neither micro presses nor forty years of silence could suppress their reemergence.

    We at Now-Again decided against compiling a "best of" anthology out of respect for Hewitt's monstrous achievements and because, well, these albums are so damn good. Thus, we offer you this series of reissues designed to be as close to the original pressings as possible down to their hand-painted covers. First in the series, Hewitt's legendary 1970 release Winter Winds, a mix of modal, latin-tinged, and ethereal vocal jazz.
