I am blown away on how good the Stanley Turrentine Blue Note is. You saved me a lot of money wasting it on the reissues! I do have a number of the original music matters 45 releases and some are good, but now I see what you are talking about…better late then never!
Stanley Turrentine is one of our favorite players. His work in 1963 with Kenny Burrell on Midnight Blue is extraordinary. It’s also one of the best sounding jazz records we have ever played.
I don’t know which records, if any, sound good on the Music Matters label, but the ones I have played left a lot to be desired, as you can read about below.
