Carmen Lundy once again proves she is a true legend of Jazz in a move that will have fans and Jazz enthusiasts everywhere scrambling to get in line for the first copies of the re-issue of her 1987 compact disc Night And Day, which has proven to be one of her most rare and highly-prized CDs.

For all those who have been looking for a copy of Night And Day, the 1987 release of all standards featuring Kenny Kirkland, the wait is over! Afrasia Productions, Inc. is re-issuing this out-of-print, much sought-after CD. Available for the first time after many years, the album contains the original tracks with new artwork created by Carmen Lundy especially for this reissue.

Carmen is very excited to bring you this classic album on its 25th anniversary featuring some of Jazz' finest musicians. Says Carmen, “This recording has always been one of my favorites. Those were special times for Jazz in the mid 80s in New York City. This record was especially magical because of these incredibly gifted players. I want to thank our beloved Kenny Kirkland, Victor Lewis, Alex Blake, my brother Curtis Lundy, Rodney Jones and Ricky Ford for sharing in the making of this, my first and only recording of all standards."

Yes, Night And Day is the only all standards album Ms. Lundy has ever released, making it one of the reasons this is such a momentous occasion. This reissue, due for release on October 18, 2011, will precede Carmen's new upcoming CD of all originals (and one arrangement) to be released in February 2012.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
