Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.


Though he’s only 22, Immanuel Wilkins’ Blue Note debut is the kind of album that has people throw around words like masterpiece, and for good reason: it sounds like it was composed and played by an artist who’s road-tested and done his 10,000 hours. It’s also politically relevant — the songs capture the mood of Ferguson, Missouri, and the horrific lynching death of Mary Turner — and Wilkins’ playing is affecting and engrossing. It’s like attending a seance to wash out all the bad shit we carry, a therapeutic album in the form of 63 minutes of adventurous, swaying jazz.
