The good news is that the wonderful Central Park North album is, after a fashion, available again.
The bad news is that the remastering is poor, and the odd, unnatural, abrupt canned applause is jarring and distracting. Who could have thought this would be an improvement? Unbelievable!
This was always my favorite Thad/Mel album, full of performances worthy of detailed study and admiration. Try to ignore the problems, and enjoy the fantastic performances.

Thad Jones was an advanced trumpeter/coronetist who was self taught. He played with Hank Jones (yes, his brother) and Sonny Stitt, charles Mingus and Count Basie - very impressive. Not only did he teach himself music well, he also became a talented arranger and composer, especially well known for his classic "A Child is Born", featured magnificently on this cd.
Mel Lewis was a definitive big band drummer. He had worked with Stan Kenton and Dizzy Gillepsie as well as Benny Goodman.
In 1965, these two greats got together and formed their orchestra. This cd captures the excitement of these performances. There is the swinging "Big Dipper" which Thad Jones wrote and arranged. The beautifully melodic "The Groove Merchant" is also on this cd - Mr Jones didn't write that one, but he does a incredible job arranging it and playing it.
This cd is a very good representation of the caliber of music that Thad Jones and Mel Lewis and their orchestra were producing. Treat your ears to some real jazz and buy this cd.

This is a reissue of a classic album. But this latest revision seems to have left off multiple tracks from the recording - the trumpets sound like they are in a different studio.
A schlocky job of remastering. A crying shame since this was a GREAT album.

Bad Quality of Remastering Work Really Disturbs.

Despite the distant-sounding trumpet mix and the rather peculiar addition of canned applause to the end of each number (it was a studio session!)this is a must have for 5 bucks. One of the best big bands ever assembled; too bad it couldn't have been reissued in its original form.
