  Jazzman says: Some people dream of performing in a band, with all the excitement and fun it brings. Others dream of making a record, buzzing off the achievement and kudos. And a few more would love to own and run their very own music venue, with the décor and music policy being up to them. In 1966, Bobby Jackson did all three.

You won’t find the name Bobby Jackson in the jazz books. Yet here is a remarkable man who did more than anyone to promote live jazz in his hometown of Minneapolis, risking everything to open a venue for jazz lovers and putting on such luminaries as Freddie Hubbard, Roland Kirk and Elvin Jones. In so doing he rode the wave of financial insecurity, dealt with problems involving drugs, the law and the police, not to mention the issues and temperaments of the musicians themselves. Yet he still managed to keep things together enough to record a truly deep and inspired album with his band - although it took another 8 years before it was finally released, albeit in minimal quantities and with zero distribution!

And so the seventh release in our HOLY GRAIL series tells the story of Bobby Jackson and his Café Extra-Ordinaire. The music is deep, modal and progressive jazz. The story is one of bearded coffee-drinking jazz heads, Elvin Jones shedding tears, silver foil backdrops, and we also reveal what happened when a young man named Prince ventured into the café one day with the intention to sit in on a jam session!

The LP is a reproduction of the original, pressed on 180g virgin vinyl. The CD also contains a 12 page colour booklet with previously unpublished pictures provided by Bobby Jackson himself. Interviews with Jackson and his band help to make up the extensive liner notes, telling the engaging story of the Café Extra-Ordinaire and all who took part in it.

KEY POINTS:
· Reissue of rare private press jazz LP
· Superb modal and spiritual jazz throughout
· 12 page booklet with extensive notes, interviews and previously unpublished photographs
· Deluxe LP limited to 1000 numbered copies - will NOT be repressed.
· RARE and FINE music reissued only with Jazzman – all because WE DIG DEEPER!
