Quiet vinyl, good recording. Very happy with this. This is on par with those Tone Poet releases. Pallas pressing.
The music is very well recorded. Dexter's sax is sharply focused in the middle. The drums are incredibly well-captured, almost as if they have a space around them - their vividness is astonishing. The piano is in the right channel and sounds softened, like a Rudy van Gelder recording. The bass is deep, a little bloated and tubby, comes from somewhere in the back.
The music stretches from left to right nicely. Overall, this is a pretty stunning release. This has the quality of a Tone Poet, but for about $9 less. In fact, go and check out ORG music, as they have a lot of albums of this quality, from a variety of musicians - all priced like this album.
