Hi All,
When looking on the net for jazz CDs, I keep coming across the description ' Rudy van Gelder Edition ' in brackets after many of the titles.
Can anyone tell me what this means?

Rudy Van Gelder is a recording tech responsible for cleaning up digitising and hence the reissue of many of the original blue note jazz recordings. Without him many would not have been heard again.

He started out doing recording as a hobby in the 1950s in the living room of his parents' house in New Jersey. The layout of the house and that he had it equipped with a control room made it very suitable. The sound quality was superb.His family weren't too keen though on the house being filled with musicians plus hamburgers, drinks etc all over the place. As his repute grew he was recording for several independent jazz labels, including Alfred Lion's Blue Note.
