Mastered from the original analog master tapes by Kevin Gray

One of the best-sounding Blue Notes. True to its title, the music and groove of this album is for late nights and low lights. Thick, smoky, humid – a killer you gotta own.


Analogue Productions' Blue Note and Nat "King" Cole Reissues WIN A Positive Feedback 2010 Brutus Award!
"...if you haven't picked up every one of the Blue Note and Nat King Cole reissues from Chad Kassem and company at Acoustic Sounds, you're really missing out!" - David W. Robinson, Positive Feedback, Issue 52

Alfred Lion considered this his favorite production and well he should have. Without piano, Burrell, Stanley Turrentine and company get a clean open sound and a deep groove on such now classic compositions as the title tune and "Chitlins Con Carne," which has become a blues band staple.

This is one heck of a recording and if you don't already know, one of the best jazz blues records of all time. With that being said, this DSD recording is simply fantastic. I have a much better analogue playback system than my digital setup but I can't imagine it sounding much better on plastic. Also keep in mind you get two extra tracks...a must buy for anyone looking for jazz guitar and some blues thrown into the mix.
