One of the most frustrating label groups around. They seem not to give a toss about quality and buying anything released by them these days is a total crapshoot.

On the CD front, they started pressing up many classic jazz albums (originally released through the Original Jazz Classics imprint) as CDRs. No notice is provided to the consumer either. These releases are sold through major online retailers and smaller independent shops. If you buy any sealed OJC CDs look at them very carefully. Many of them look like CDs but are in fact CDRs, and you can't really tell until you open them. I'd rather the label group just sell these as reasonably priced (e.g. $10 or less) FLAC downloads than con us into buying CDRs when we're paying for real CDs.

On the vinyl front, they've stopped licensing their releases to specialty audiophile labels so AAA reissues of these classic albums are no more. Instead they release stuff themselves, almost always cut from a digital master, then pressed at whatever plant happens to have the capacity. These range from pretty good plants like RTI and QRP to lower tier plants like United and Rainbo, so pressing quality is all over the place even if you're okay with digitally sourced vinyl.
