In addition, no gloss or premium finish is added which is odd considering the higher price of this limited series. Despite this, the records are well protected in generic paper with polyvinyl lining sleeves. Side A Track - 1 "Bluesville" as the title implies starts things rolling with a slow bluesy swing. Soon, smooth saxes followed by powerful anchored trombones enter the picture with their crunchy, brassy tones paving the way for a slow buildup, provided by trumpet fortes plus punchy drum kicks and syncopated snare shots.
Towards the middle, the energy softens temporarily to finally come back in a strong, proud, punchy and dynamic finale. Track - 2 "88 Basie Street" another penned by Sam Nestico is a slow swinging sophisticated ballad. Starting out quite simply in trio—piano, Bass and hi-hat plus snare establishing the tempo—with the swing feel picking up early on in the tune.
A showstopper for sure. Track - 5 "Katy" is a sumptuous ballad rich in sound with grain-free brassy tones, that right from the start, sweeps you off of your seat. Every detail is simply spot on: the Bass always a bit rounded yet articulate and—all too rare—at the perfect level in the mix in turn supporting the floating melody of the muted brass. Lots of audiophile goodies in this short gem. Huge dynamic crescendos that seem to have no upper limit.
The ride cymbal has a realistic metal resonance which would be so welcome on rock recordings instead of the usual lofi fare we must put up with. The impressive build up culminating in the end, feels like an immersive ocean of sound waves. Not bad, but definitely less inspiring than the previous numbers. Joe Pass is first to solo, the alto takes up on the right with reverb lessening the intimate impact, followed by the tenor on the left and finally the trumpet comes in the center.
Overall this one was a bit less dynamic in range and also in intimacy. The better your system, the bigger the reward soundwise. A definite must have! This 45 rpm reissue is non compressed or limited, has wide dynamic range, full-range sound, warm richly dense mids reaching deep down in the bass and up to the highest overtones. All tracks had a perfect blend in the mix of the many musicians making every melodic line easy to follow.
No listener fatigue whatsoever from beginning to end. Startling, lightning fast kick-ass dynamic drum kit. In addition for Big Band brassy tone, grandeur, realistic size, panoramic imaging portrayal and intimacy. Crisp and warm at the same time with sweet extended top end and spot on treble detail, level and tonal balance.
