Plated and pressed at RTI

Chick's brilliant trio album from 1968, Now He Sings, Now He Sobs is held in the same kind of rarefied esteem as the classic Bill Evans trio sessions. One listen will tell you why .... the exquisite interplay between Chick, Czech bassist Miroslav Vitous and drum master Roy Haynes make it abundantly clear why this album has achieved such legendary status among jazz piano trio recordings. Now He Sing's, Now He Sobs features a program of all Corea compositions including the first recording of Matrix, one of Corea's most beloved tunes.

The Blue Note Tone Poet Series was born out of Blue Note President Don Was’ admiration for the exceptional audiophile Blue Note LP reissues presented by Music Matters. Was brought Joe Harley (from Music Matters), a.k.a. the “Tone Poet,” on board to curate and supervise a series of reissues from the Blue Note family of labels.

Extreme attention to detail has been paid to getting these right in every conceivable way, from the jacket graphics and printing quality to superior LP mastering (direct from the master tapes) by Kevin Gray to superb 180-gram audiophile LP pressings by Record Technology Inc. Every aspect of these Blue Note/Tone Poet releases is done to the highest possible standard. It means that you will never find a superior version. This is IT.

Records today are not cheap, but when you get one that

just blows your mind, the price suddenly becomes an after

thought. This issue sounds great, and the performance is

fantastic. The musicians play together so well, it is really

What a debut album this is from our now dear departed Chick (we really miss him)! I had an old copy of the Solid State release with its usual clicks and pops, so grabbed this reprint from the tone poet series after a looonnng wait for it. A superlative album of Chick's with the amazing snap-crackle of Roy Haynes (what a drummer) and Miroslav's tasteful and masterful bass. What a sheer joy to possess and listen to this masterful and beautifully crafted piece of vinyl (and Stoughton cover) - Kevin Gray has done a great job (as expected) with the mastering. GRAB THIS BEFORE IT GOES AWAY! And go it will. Now back to singing and sobbing (with joy of course).

Wow!! Maybe the best of the Tone Poets

The pressing, mastering, recording, performance...everything is 5 out of 5.

The pressing is quiet, but at the same time, the dynamic range ranges from soft to thunderous.....the piano, bass, and drums combine to make this a high impact album.

My favorite, so far, of the Tone Poet series. Right up there with the 2019 Music Matters SRX Blue Note remasters.
