Great choice for a Tone Poet release, a touch avant-garde but not too out there. Drums and cymbals sound really clear and crisp. Horns well balanced. A reasonable piano sound considering RVG recorded it. Some have commented the bass is underdone - it’s a little reserved but it’s still clear and easily discernible in the mix, just not as focused in sound as the other instruments.

As others have mentioned, bass is a little lost in the mix. More on some tracks than others. The rest of the instruments sparkle and sound incredible

Equipment used:
* Rega Planar 6 w/NEO PSU
* Rega Exact cartridge
* Rega Elex-R
* Dali Oberon 5
* Blue Jeans Cables + interconnects

tone poet overhype train and kevins gray overall work on these albums... this ear piercing album sounds good but not amazing for sure, you can barely hear cecil mcbee bass and he has few minor solos as well. as for the album itself the annoying long boogaloo themes make this attempt to avangarde outdated and don't really fit the content. its like trying to mix hard bop with something out, it just does not work. you will find interesting solos here but that boogaloo junk on most of the tunes makes it a bad matching overall. scares me away from repeated listenings. if I want to hear some ear catching hard bop I will listen to a proper one, which blue note has plenty anyway.

Great album but after returning two new warped copies I moved on.

Man the instruments fly off the album. The stereo separation is as distinct as I’ve ever heard. At one point I was startled by the horns and I’m not on a crazy expensive set up. Highly recommend

What an amazing sound. The work they did with the horns in the stereo is fab!

Clean, flat and flawless pressing. Dynamic with a nice sound stage. The sound is full, warm, rich and expansive. This one was done the right way!

Bass is a little shy. Upping my sub helps a lot. Great sounding record

Great album and great realization, as expected. I only wish bass wasn't cut as much. I bet master tape has much more punch
