PS-One of the most beautiful jazz ballads ever written and covered by many jazz players is on this album: A Child Is Born.
I discovered that this had just been released on CD by Blue Note and purchased it as fast as I could hit the computer keys. Not only are these some of the best musicians to ever grace our earth, but this album is one of the best set of tunes I have ever heard. It's worth twice the price just for the cut "US" and "A Child is Born" The mixing on this CD is flawless with no compression at all. It sounds as fresh today as it did when I was growing up. In fact it sounds like it was recorded yesterday. Malcolm Addey re-mixed this with loving appreciation of this great album. Thank you!
If you appreciate great jazz you just won't find a better album than this. There is no better example of excellent musicianship on the planet.
Thank you Blue Note for releasing this master piece on CD and the outstanding job you did at mixing it from the original tapes.
