Sunday at the Village Vanguard 45 RPM box set: The ultimate analog version of Bill Evans' 1961 jazz staple

180-gram 45 RPM 2LP box set; deluxe packaging includes opulent box, special jackets and unique bonus artwork — strictly limited to 3,000 copies!

The gorgeous romanticism of Bill Evans' Sunday at the Village Vanguard cannot be overstated. Neither can the iconic record's place in history — nor what it signifies to generations upon generations of listeners hypnotized by the consummate playing, resplendent compositions, and seamless chemistry. Originally released in1961, the live set remains the gold standard for symbiotic trio performance, empathy, and communication. Because of Orrin Keepnews' brilliant recording, it also survives as one of the best-sounding jazz albums extant — a fact confirmed by its appearance on multiple reissues over the past few decades. But it's never sounded better than this.

Evans' masterwork reaches three-dimensional sonic and emotional heights never before attained by analog recordings on this opulent Mobile Fidelity UD1S box set complete with special jackets and a unique insert. Strictly numbered to 3000 copies, this ultra-hi-fi audiophile edition literally and figuratively brings you closer to the music of this Riverside staple that, along with the complementary Waltz for Debby, transformed Evans into a legend and became a blueprint for how jazz trios should work together. You'll enjoy deep-black backgrounds, pointillistic details, and staggering dynamics. Experienced via UD1S, Sunday at the Village Vanguard places Evans and his esteemed colleagues in your listening room. Every note, breath, and movement captured by the microphones are reproduced with exquisite accuracy and wowing clarity.

Housed in an opulent box, this UD1S edition contains special jackets and unique bonus artwork that further illuminate the splendor of the recording. Aurally and visually, this Sunday at the Village Vanguard is a curatorial artifact meant to be preserved, poured over, touched, and examined.

Recorded just 10 days before bassist Scott LaFaro perished in a car accident, Sunday at the Village Vanguard changed the way jazz trios were perceived by audiences and musicians alike. Up until Evans, LaFaro, and drummer Paul Motian proved otherwise, a trio configuration meant two sidemen served as rhythmic support to spotlight the virtuosity of a headline performer or primary soloist. Here, the three instrumentalists operate in complete unison and achieve supreme democratic balance.

More About Mobile Fidelity UltraDisc One-Step and what sets it apart
Instead of utilizing the industry-standard three-step lacquer process, Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab's new UltraDisc One-Step (UD1S) uses only one step, bypassing two processes of generational loss. While three-step processing is designed for optimum yield and efficiency, UD1S is created for the ultimate in sound quality. MFSL engineers begin with the original master tapes and meticulously cut a set of lacquers. These lacquers are used to create a very fragile, pristine UD1S stamper called a "convert." Delicate "converts" are then formed into the actual record stampers, producing a final product that literally and figuratively brings you closer to the music.
