Sadly, this high quality does NOT translate onto these releases. I give it a 3 star rating strictly for the musical content. The sound quality is abysmal when compared to the original vinyl releases. One would expect the vinyl to sound worse...have distortion, crackle and noise. Oddly enough, those problems are strictly limited to this CD reissue. It's a sad fact but the mastering on this set leaves much to be desired and I would say that the release sounds as bad as many bootlegs.
If you are looking to buy this for the music, please do...it's wonderful music. If you are expecting a sonic treat from the golden age of stereo recording....look elsewhere. I wish the modern Audio Fidelity company would pick up some of the stuff from the old Audio Fidelity and give it a proper release with the respect these artists deserve.

I love listening to jazz. What could be better than Louis. I grew up in New Orleans. This music is played in the French Quarter and River Walk. It brings back memories.Published on April 26, 2014 by Rhonda Gisclair
