"The cover is exemplary, and the label design is almost identical to what a 1960s Verve Records label looks like. Musically, this is a wonderful recording if you like the sound of the Vibraphone and Milt Jackson's playing as paired with Peterson's classic trio. And as far as how the recording sounds, in a word its: outstanding. Another clear winner from the Verve Records Acoustic Sounds series, especially for the estimated $38 price point." — Mark Smotroff, Audiophile Review, Feb. 19, 2024. Read the entire review here.

Scott Yanow of AllMusic says in his 4-Star review of Very Tall: "This first matchup on records between pianist Oscar Peterson and vibraphonist Milt Jackson was so logical that it is surprising it did not occur five years earlier. Originally recorded for Verve and three decades later reissued on this audiophile CD by Mobile Fidelity, the quartet set (which also includes bassist Ray Brown and drummer Ed Thigpen) swings as hard as one might expect. Highlights include 'On Green Dolphin Street,' 'The Work Song,' 'John Brown's Body' (a jam on 'Battle Hymn of the Republic') and 'Reunion Blues.' Fortunately O.P. and Bags would meet up on records many times in the future (particularly during their Pablo years) but this first effort is a particularly strong set."

Seeking to offer definitive audiophile grade versions of some of the most historic and best jazz records ever recorded, Verve Label Group and Universal Music Enterprises' audiophile Acoustic Sounds vinyl reissue series utilizes the skills of top mastering engineers and the unsurpassed production craft of Quality Record Pressings. All titles are mastered from the original analog tapes, pressed on 180-gram vinyl and packaged by Stoughton Printing Co. in high-quality gatefold sleeves with tip-on jackets. The releases are supervised by Chad Kassem, CEO of Acoustic Sounds, the world's largest source for audiophile recordings.
