All mastered from the original analog master tapes by mastering maestro Kevin Gray. 200-gram LPs pressed at Acoustic Sounds' state-of-the-art pressing plant, Quality Record Pressings, plated by Gary Salstrom

Deep groove label pressings, tip-on jackets on thick cardboard stock

First 250 LP copies of each title will be numbered editions and will only be available to series subscribers

This session is a model of the emotionally intense ballad programs featured on Prestige's Moodsville subsidiary. The great Kenny Burrell receives a major assist from saxophone patriarch Coleman Hawkins (who is in exemplary early-Sixties form), Hawkins's rhythm section of the time (made up exclusively of natives of Burrell's hometown Detroit) and conga drummer Ray Barretto. The choice of material and variety of settings are inspired, with Burrell heard solo on "No More," over just bass and drums on "Guilty," in two different quintet settings and on three titles by the full sextet. Each soloist is fully engaged throughout, with things shifting into even higher gear when Burrell and Hawkins converse on "Montono Blues" and "I Thought About You." With Coleman Hawkins, Tommy Flanagan, Major Holley, Eddie Locke and Ray Barretto.

This is a great record all around. I've quite a few very good sounding records (many from AP/QRP) and this ranks among the best.

Beautiful job here- great pressing, flat, centered and very quiet. Tip-on cover. 1962 recording by Van Gelder is excellent and wonderfully vibrant. Wide spread stereo with slight hole in the middle but doesn't at all detract from palpable sound. Highly recommended.

This is one of my favorites and Analogue Productions has done a fantastic job with the repressing. Stunning sound, beautiful music.

very nice record! very nice reissue! Every thing was done right on this one. I keep looking for something to complain about but I can't find one. A must have record to be honest. I like it as much as I like Midnight Blue
