Classics
Dave Brubeck didn’t stay still during the heyday of his classic quartet in the 1950s and 1960s. Year after year, the group piled up recording sessions, releasing as many as five albums a year, touring the world whenever they weren’t in the studio. In all the bustle, 1964’s Jazz Impressions of Japan wasn’t so much lost in the shuffle but swept up in the deluge; it was one strong album among many. Time revealed it not only to be something special and prescient, but also a punctuation mark to Brubeck’s purple period with alto saxophonist Paul Desmond, drummer Joe Morello, and bassist Eugene Wright.

How we keep your records spinning.
Discover new music

Discover new music.

We spend our days digging for great albums. And once we’ve found that gem of a record, we do everything we can to help you appreciate the music. From gorgeous album art to world-class listening guides, you’ll find yourself discovering something new every time you listen.
Special editions

Score special-edition records (available nowhere else).

We’ve got a knack for crafting the most unique, definitive version of any album – old or new. Remastering and reissuing a lesser-known classic album with artist-authored liner notes? We do that. Collaborating with an emerging artist to release their music and tell their story? We do that too. Either way you cut it, we’re creating musical experiences that you won’t find anywhere else.

Swaps

Swap it out.

With Swaps, you can exchange a featured record with one from the VMP Archive or from a collection of our store titles. Because after fine-tuning your taste over a lifetime, trusting someone else to curate your record collection can be scary. We get it, and we want to help you try new things without forcing a title on you that’s not a good fit.
