HOLY CRAP - Japanese level pressing quality

Music is amazing. Let's talk pressing quality. This is one of the best I've heard out of QRP. This is truly on the level of old Japanese vinyl, the JVC stuff. QRP is in the game on this one and makes me long for KOB on standard vinyl. This is a true must own both in content, sound quality, and pressing quality. WOW.

I gave up on trying to find a decent original of this recording and was disappointed with another re-release I had previously found. Skeptical, I took a chance on this one and finally hit the jackpot. This one is Quiet, flat and has a realistic presence. Like James Brown said, "Are you ready for the night train?"

Huge Sound

This one is a home run. It's hard to believe there are only three of them. Ray Brown's bass compliments Oscar Peterson's piano so well. They really were masters. A+
