Widely regarded as the greatest recording engineer in jazz history, and with an illustrious career spanning over half a century - it's no surprise that there is such a wealth of classic material to bring together for this incredible box set to mark the occasion. The Prestige Rudy Van Gelder Remasters brings together 20 specially selected titles that Van Gelder originally recorded for Prestige, and has now remastered in his rich, natural signature tone.
