It isn't too difficult to understand why MFSL considered this album to be a worthy candidate for an Ultradisc reissue—aside from Cannonball Adderley, you have a lineup that includes Miles Davis, Hank Jones, Sam Jones, and Art Blakey. This is a group that could take on a Barry Manilow number and turn it into a jazz masterpiece. MFSL have done the purchaser a favor, too, by including an additional track that was left off the original album. This sixth track, “Alison's Uncle”, closes out Somethin' Else on a high note, changing the flow of energy in an interesting way (purists can still finish up on a quieter note, as with the original, by programming "Dancing in the Dark" as the final track). In many ways it's a surprise that this track was left off originally—it's an excellent piece, with Adderley and Davis trading licks and solos while Jones and Blakey keep pace. Blakey also takes some terrific solos. …

22 Mar 2010, 21:16 by chintsuThe 25 Most Influential Ambient Albums Of All Time (русск. 25 самых влиятельных эмбиент альбомов всех времён)
В 2002 году музыкальный продюсер Джэф Тоун (Jeff Towne) и журналист Питер Манци (Peter Manzi) из журнала «New Age Voice Magazine» составили рейтинг главных альбомов в стиле эмбиент, созданных за всё время. Для отбора претендентов на попадание в рейтинг были приглашены судьи, среди которых были музыканты Стив Роуч, Роберт Рич, основатель звукозаписывающей компании Hearts of Space Стефен Хилл (Stephen Hill) и др. В итоге эксперты выбрали «25 самых влиятельных эмбиент альбомов всех времён» (The 25 Most Influential Ambient Albums Of All Time).
В этот рейтинг попали как классические работы Брайана Ино и Стива Роуча, так и альбомы, обычно классифицируемые как прогрессивный рок (Tangerine Dream), электронная музыка (Aphex Twin, The Orb) и даже джаз (Miles Davis). Таким образом, само определение эмбиент было существенно расширено.
