While the recording is lovely, you have to keep in mind the limitations of technology available for capturing a live performance in the middle of the 1950's. Blue Note has once again pulled a rabbit out of their hat with the mastering of this album -- especially if you're lucky enough to own the original release, for a critical comparison. Relative to many of Blue Note's vinyl re-releases, you'll notice a pronounced lack of detail in this recording.
That's hardly disappointing. The only real disappointment is having to wait until August for A Night at Birdland Vol 2 to get the same treatment from the Blue Note 75 Anniversary Initiative.
