Brought to you by the folks at Better Records. We know a good sounding record when we hear one.
And the music is interesting and fun from first song to last. With Joe Pass on guitar how could it not be – the guy’s a very talented player.
With two Triple Plus (A+++) shootout winning sides, this original stereo World Pacific copy simply could not be beat
- Huge and rich, here is the kind of Tubey Magical presentation that lets this big group of musicians (four trombones!) come alive
- The engineering by none other than Bruce Botnick is brilliant in all respects, as good as his work with The Doors
- This is FUN West Coast Pop Jazz built around the superb arrangements of Bob Florence and the great songs of the Stones
- We’re so sure you’ll like this music that if for any reason you are unhappy the domestic return shipping is on us!
Engineering by Bruce Botnick
Botnick is of course the man behind the superb recordings of The Doors, Love and others too numerous to mention.
He also recorded another of our favorite West Coast jazz ensemble records, Bud Shank And the Sax Section. That undiscovered gem — well known to us but heretofore undiscovered by the audiophile public as far as we can tell — has a lot in common with this album. Top players, smart arrangements, superb sound, the album is as fun as Fun West Coast Jazz gets.
This copy is spacious, sweet and positively dripping with ambience. Talk about Tubey Magic, the liquidity of the sound here is positively uncanny. This is vintage analog at its best, so full-bodied and relaxed you’ll wonder how it ever came to be that anyone seriously contemplated trying to improve it. (more…)
