I was not disappointed. This is a jaw-dropping piece of work-both sonically and musically. A definite thumbs up! A top notch pressing. You will love this one. It sounds so warm - as if you were in the room with the musicians. This is without a doubt one of the best LP's I own now! The original is no comparisen to this recording.
If you appreciate Ray Browns music this is top notch. This LP is not just audiphile quality. The music is great And last but not least, the sonics are everything I was led to expect by the legions of reviewers who sing the praises of this beautiful work on fabulous vinyl.
Clean and clear as you could want. I pulled out my best jazz trio CDs for comparison, with friends present, and all agreed that none of the CDs came close. Very well done. On the original this cut can have ever an ever so slight glare and by comparison does not sound as dynamic.
The 45rpm sound simply beautiful and the dynamics just explode out of the quite background. Well, on this rendition and especially with the quietness and relaxed sound of the 45rpm recording this song is very emotionally involving and simply a beautiful thing to hear.
What incredible music. A great group of musicians and a great group of songs. I find Michel Camilo to be a composer and pianist of exceptional talent. Listen To the Music. Can you say FUN? I mean lots and lots of fun. This is a great live concert, full of energy, emotion, a great audience, and really fun music. The longevity of this record's popularity and so many others on Concord proves that while Carl E. Jefferson was a used car salesman turned record company owner, he did not sell lemons!
Very highly recommended! To top it off, it would be pressed at the new Quality Record Pressings plant and be mastered by Kevin Gray. This reissue does everything the original does, but it does it better. First, as quiet as my copy was, this pressing just allows the music to appear in my room with no hint that it is being played off vinyl. Second, there is just something relaxing about the sound of a well-done 45 RPM pressing. It loses none of its presence, clarity or transient speed, but at the same time it is more relaxed and simply sounds more beautiful.
Red Holloway tenor sax and a rare appearance by the great Emily Remler guitar round out the original musicians. This is a completely new mastering and pressing of this famous release. Gary Salstrom, QRP's general manager and master plating technician, plated the lacquers, and lastly we redesigned the artwork for this deluxe gatefold jacket presentation.
Harris, who had led the popular Three Sounds in the s, had been living in obscurity in Boise, ID, for several years before he was urged by bassist Ray Brown to come to the West Coast for some recording sessions.
Harris became a permanent member of Brown's regular trio for quite a few years before launching his own quartet. He had lost none of his technique, soul, or swing in the interim, as he shows throughout this fine release. Billy Strayhorn. Mistreated But Undefeated Blues. Ray Brown. That's All. Easy Does It.

Cry Me a River Arthur Hamilton. Take the "A" Train Billy Strayhorn.Jan 01, · Ray Brown and Gene Harris have a magnificent energy between them. They understand each other, and play off each other so well. My absolute favorite version of 'Take the A Train'. Deeply soulful and spellbinding/5(66).
