I used to listen to the record of this - a lot - during College. Well, sometimes you buy a CD of something you used to listen to on record, and it sounds thin and harsh and not very musical. Not here. This recording preserves the original analogue sound, except that it's much more dynamic and clear than anything that my record player could produce. Audiophiles will appreciate the remastering of this older recording. You hear the vintage signature, but it's still clear and listenable and engaging. Nice.
The liner notes tell you that the pieces were done ad hoc by these guys with basically no rehearsal, yet it was just one of those magical instances where despite lack of preparation and good set up, everything just clicked and, as they say in the Jazz, it's "got that swing".
