Feature: New Old Jazz: Reissuing Jazz Records With Amir Abdullah

The art of the reissue is something that seems to be becoming more and more appreciated these days. Maybe it’s due to the fact that most of the music we have is in the form of ones and zeros that live on our computers and phones. The resurgence of beautifully packaged vinyl, and making old artists available to new audiences is gaining momentum however, and Amir Abdullah and his label are at the forefront of that movement.
