I admit to not being a huge fan of Diana Krall's albums (which sometimes have a bit of sameness to them), but there was something magical about this record that I first heard on CD, and then SACD, many years ago. Was it Claus Ogerman's notoriously lush orchestrations? The understated backing music? The selection of torch songs? Krall's smokey late-night voice whispering in my ears? Whatever is in the secret sauce, I dug it then and now. And to hear it on well-pressed 45RPM vinyl is a real treat, being even more smooth and lush than the SACD. (Although the album in surround sound wraps the listener in a warm fuzzy blanket!) The only thing I question is this was pressed from presumably analog tapes, and I would have thought this was purely a digital recording. Not that it takes anything away from the sonics (this is a wonderful sounding release!), but makes me wonder about the source. Regardless, I'd grab this ORG pressing before it sells out if you are a fan of Diana Krall's.

Pretty nice, but what about quality control?

The music is outstanding -- these sets have never sounded better. The booklet and notes is an LP-sized version of the CD booklet accompanying the 3-CD + 1 DVD set issued by Sony/BMG. Two of the five LPs in the set I received were defective (scratched or with other pressing defects), and one of the replacement discs has sleeve scuffs which, although they don't affect play, still make me wonder if anyone cares about quality control. The bottom line is: the music is highly recommended; the product is imperfect. For $30/disc, we deserve better.

Kenny Burrell sounds great on this, similar to the Coltrane and Burrell album of just thir names. Tommy Flanagan and others also swing. Good bop and good sound. The grooves are not pressed deeply, though, and I had a couple of mistracks untill I adjusted my tonearm a little. When the nice vinyl is all over priced, it is good to get a bargain for $10.
