"P.E. Hewitt was but 16 years old when he recorded and released -- in a press of 50 copies -- his debut album, Jawbones. By the time he sold through the 100 copies of this third, Winter Winds, he was approaching the ripe-age of 20. The three albums he and his young compatriots wrote, recorded, pressed and -- if you can call it that -- distributed, are three of the rarest damn-good '70s jazz albums you could ever hope to come across. That's a subtle, but important distinction. There are many rare jazz albums in every imaginable subgenre -- funk, free, fusion... But Hewitt's three albums were so damn good that neither micro presses nor forty years of silence could suppress their reemergence. We at Now-Again decided against compiling a 'best of' anthology out of respect for Hewitt's monstrous achievements and because, well, these albums are so damn good. Thus, we offer you a three album box set -- we've directly recreated the albums as they were issued, down to their hand-painted covers. Also included is a 44-page booklet which includes the original liner notes from the albums, an essay on Hewitt and his career, a thorough interview with Hewitt by Egon and Groove Merchant 'Cool' Chris Veltri, and never before seen photos."
