Mark Murphy's Transcendent Late 60's 'Tour De Fource'

5 Stars
Posted 10 days ago by Stephen Norvell

Widely regarded as Murphy's best recording from his years living abroad in Europe, Midnight Mood is an album of great Historic Significance. Recorded in Cologne, the Audio Engineering of this Album was superior to the engineering of Murphy's earlier works on the Riverside Label. This LP from MPS does not disappoint. The Vinyl is quiet, allowing the magnificence of Murphy's Vocalese and the accompanying Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland Band to be fully appreciated. Midnight Mood would be the first recording in which Murphy's rich signature Baritone Voice would fully develop from the higher Baritone Voice of his Twenties, preceding his legendary 1972-1994 recording contract with Joe Fields' Muse Label. Mark Murphy is among the best of American Bossa Nova Jazz Singers. For more than a decade, Murphy's Concerts at the Birdland Jazz Club in NYC typically reserved the second set of the evening for Bossa Nova Jazz. Murphy's recording of Sconsoloto is exceptional! Encore!!!

Totally Chill

Am a big Cobb fan and really enjoy listening to this after a long day of work. All ballads but many have a bluesy feel. The usual kudos to QRP - quiet pressing with lots of detail and rich tone.

well done

5 Stars
Posted by Anonymous

all around excellent, clear presentation, and I really like the Atlantic black label for mono recordings! It lacks the immediacy of an original, and it's a little bassy, like most modern remasters, but if you have the means to acquire a quiet original you aren't reading this. Coltrane's Atlantic recordings were hard panned, so enjoy the room-filling mono on quiet flat centred vinyl!

Mesmerizing Music

5 Stars
Posted by Ankan

Music of rare beauty, elegance and panache, at the same time soul- stirring and deeply moving. Just one listen to "A Child is Born" or the "Pavane" should convince one! Reportedly, even Jim Hall, well- known for not wanting to ever listen to his recordings, said that he liked this one. The effortlessness and ease with which the musicians serve up the grooves leaves one speechless. Unreserved five stars for the music. However, the sound (at least on this edition, which is all I have of this recording) is a tad veiled, and I could have done with a little more of higher end tizz and sparkle on Steve Gadd's cymbals. Also, the discs I got have slightly more occasional surface noise than I've been accustomed to recently, especially compared to the stellar pressings from Sterling Sound, but nothing that ever distracts from the music. So, maybe just four stars on the recording/remastering/pressing. Most highly recommended overall, though, simply for the wonderful music.


Art Blakey - Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers With Thelonious Monk Product No: ARZR 39828
Available: InStock
Category: 180 Gram Vinyl Record
Label: Razor & Tie (Analog Spark)

excellent mastering

4 Stars
Posted by Anonymous

The mastering is excellent, considering the age of the tape, and if you like your stereo panned HARD, you'll love this! Monk is in the left speaker, bass player in both, Blakey, Griffin, and Hardman on the right. My only wish is that they had remastered the mono, instead. This issue has transparent midrange, and realistic bass and treble. Flat, quiet & centered, it's great!

Lyn Stanley's latest is outstanding!

5 Stars
Posted by zach

I've just played Lyn Stanley's latest jazz vocal, Moonlight Sessions vol.1, on 180g 45 rpm vinyl. It is outstanding from both a musical and sonic perspective. If I had to describe Stanley's musical approach in one word, that word would be intimate. I found myself imagining a smoky after-hours club where I sat nursing a drink and wounded feelings while being consoled by a torch singer who made me believe I was the only person she was singing to - and that she understood. Her intonation is precise, her pitch perfect, and her technique is always appropriate for the emotion she seeks to convey. So far, my favorites include Willow Weep for Me, Moonlight Serenade, My Funny Valentine, How Insensitive, and In the Wee Small Hours. The sonics are spectacular, as you would expect from recording engineer Al Schmitt and mastering engineer Bernie Grundman. The "one step" pressing process cuts two generations out of the pressing process, and it shows!

The soundstage is simple and analog tape hiss is revealed at track finish. Nonetheless, this one of my absolute favorite recordings. Great presence and vitality, rewarding of high fidelity gear, and a lot of fun musically.

The quality of the sound of this recording just simply blows me away. I don't know if it is the mic or the engineer,but she stood 7' away while singing to me.

One the of best sounding recordings I have heard. I own the SACD and absolutely love it. All of Lyn's albums are fantastic, but The Moonlight Sessions: Volume One has taken it to an entire new level. Thank you for such a wonderful album.

Fantastic

I have a lot of very good sounding records and a modest number of great sounding records. I have plenty that I love regardless of their fidelity. I have precious few that move me like this recording. I'm fascinated by it and I can't stop listening. Thanks to all involved, there is something very special happening here.

How does vinyl get any better!

I just can't believe how good this vinyl is!!! Sound-stage is great, detail of the instruments is perfect. The quality is the best in every way, and of course Eric and company are in top form. Jazz in this style is progressive, but its so interesting and complex, I love it.

It swings!

5 Stars
Posted by Mike

I have recently starting exploring jazz and this was a surprise to me. I was expecting more bebop but this album swings with beat, energy, melodies and a real snap in the quality of the mastering and pressing. If you want something with a get off your feet swing and a palpable love of the music this is an album worth buying.

just wonderful!

First let me tell you about the pressing; it is immaculate, no physical defect, no pops nor hiss. The mastering is also first rate, and purepleasure records have nailed this one, as well as the other albums in this series of Stacey Kent "audiophile remasters" which I also purchased.

Fantabuloso!

You better grab one or two while you can, because when the word gets out on how fabulous sounding this 10 incher is, it will be gone before you can say... pffft! Packaging is first class all the way. The sound is glorious. Probably the finest sounding mono recording extant. Cue cut no. 3 side one and hold on to your socks, they're going to be blown off!

Why all of the hype?

Lyn Stanley sings as if there is no feeling in her body. Completely passionless. The production values and players are outstanding. But even their great work cannot rescue Stanley's miserable performance.
