A never-before released Art Blakey 1965 live recording. First official release with the full permission and cooperation of the Art Blakey Estate & INA (Institut National de l’Audiovisuel).

This performance was recorded at Palais de la Mutualité, Paris, France, November 3, 1965.

Featuring Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Jaki Byard on piano, Reggie Workman on bass, Nathan Davis on sax, and, of course, Blakey on drums. Freddie Hubbard's incendiary playing on "Blue Moon" and the blistering 24-minute version of his own "Crisis" shows that he was one of the most innovative trumpeters in jazz history.

Sam Records/SFP
LP 33rpm 180g
Remastered from the Original Master Tapes
LIMITED EDITION of 2000
Facsimile reissue using the original photo by Jean-Pierre Leloir
Double insert using an original photo by Jean-Pierre Leloir from 1965
Pressed by PALLAS in Germany

Recorded on May 7 of 1965 at Studio de la Comédie des Champs-Elysées in Paris
One of the first true moments of genius from saxophonist Nathan Davis
A mid '60s European session cut for the tiny SFP label
A record that's even rarer than his early classics for MPS!
The sound here is similar to the MPS sides
A mixture of soul jazz and modal jazz
Served up with a bit more freedoms than Davis might have gotten on the US scene, and featuring a lineup that includes Woody Shaw on trumpet, Jean-Louis Chautemps on baritone sax, Rene Urtreger on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums.
The tight rhythm of Woode and Clarke is a nice counterpoint to the modernism of Davis and Shaw
Davis works a bit on soprano, which sounds great!



Ahmad Jamal Trio
Ahmad Jamal At The Pershing: But Not For Me
Analogue Productions
LP 33rpm 200g
Old-style tip-on jacket by Stoughton Printing
Mastered from Original Mono Master Tape at Sterling Sound
Pressed at Q.R.P. in U.S.A.

This is one of the best-selling jazz records ever!

Ranked No. 21 on Jazzwise's list “100 Jazz Albums That Shook The World”

In 1956 Jamal's new trio (with Israel Crosby on bass and Vernell Fournier on drums) began a residency at Chicago's Pershing Hotel, and two years later the group recorded At The Pershing: But Not For Me, which spent 108 weeks among the Top Ten best selling albums. Recorded on Jan. 16, 1958 at the Pershing Lounge in the hotel, each set played that night was recorded for a total of 43 tracks, eight of which were selected by Jamal for the album.



The Blue Note Tone Poet Audiophile Vinyl Reissue Series was born out of Blue Note President Don Was’ admiration for the exceptional audiophile Blue Note LP reissues presented by Music Matters. Was brought Joe Harley (from Music Matters), a.k.a. the “Tone Poet,” on board to curate and supervise a series of reissues from the Blue Note family of labels.

Extreme attention to detail has been paid to getting these right in every conceivable way, from the jacket graphics and printing quality (with Francis Wolff Blue Note Session Photos inside when available) to superior LP mastering (from the original master tapes) by Kevin Gray (Cohearent Audio) to superb 180-gram audiophile LP pressings by RTI, every aspect of these Blue Note/Tone Poet releases is done to the highest possible standard.

"Tone Poet" Joe Harley co-founder and co-producer of the acclaimed Music Matters audiophile vinyl series is the producer of this new all-analog series, the titles were handpicked by Harley and cover lesser-known Blue Note classics, modern era standouts, and albums from other labels under the Blue Note catalog like Pacific Jazz, World Pacific, and Solid State.

Note: The Tone Poet Series will not reissue any titles already reissued by Music Matters or Analogue Productions.

Bruce Katz Band "Crescent Crawl"
sledgehammer blues 
LP 33rpm 180g, Gatefold
Mastered & Lacquers by Bernie Grundman
LIMITED EDITION 2nd PRESSING of 1000
Made in R.T.I. U.S.A.

Valley Entertainment is based in New York City and was founded in 1994 by Barney Cohen and Jon Birge. they acquired all the recordings of the famous Audiophile Record Label "AudioQuest Music" and changed the name of the label to "sledgehammer blues".

Out-of-print since the original 1992 AudioQuest Music release, the album has become the label's most sought-after record. Bernie Grundman also handled the recording's original mastering duties. A cherished album in the audiophile jazz/blues community; original copies of the vinyl release have been commanding hundreds of dollars across the internet.
"Amazing" is the only way to describe Bruce Katz's piano and Hammond B-3 organ playing. He has awesome technique along with that important "something extra" - soul.
This album blurred the line between blues and jazz thanks in part to the use of an upright bass.
Remember that all the great AudioQuest Music recordings were produced by Joe Harley (Music Matters co-producer and Blue Note Tone Poet producer).

Special LA & OC Audio Society 25th Anniversary Edition

Michael Fremer's 100 Recommended All-Analog LP's Worth Owning - Rated 33/100
Pianist Yuko Mabuchi is joined by bassist Del Atkins and drummer Bobby Breton for this audiophile recording of four popular and jazz tunes recorded in The Brain and Creativity Institute's Cammilleri Hall, March 31, 2017.
If Mabuchi’s playing can be described as tasteful, economical, and lyrical, it should also be noted that her rapid single-note runs are impeccably executed. The performances benefit from an exceptionally realistic recording that stands out for its in-the-room ambience and tonal clarity.

All-Tube Mastered By Bernie Grundman from Original Analogue Master Tapes
Fabulous 100% All Analogue Sonics !!!

Vanessa returns to the '70s R&B classics and modern soul, covers artists like Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, Gloria Gayner, Amy Winehouse, Hall & Oates, Radiohead and Rag & Bone Man.

The album was recorded at United (former Oceanway) in Hollywood and mixed at Sphere in Burbank. All tracking and mixing was done 100% all analogue.

Michael C Ross recorded the album in United Studio B over four days on a 24 track Studer using 2 inch analogue tape running at 30 ips.

The final 30 ips 1/4 inch stereo master was used by Bernie Grundman to cut this 45rpm double LP.



Miles Davis Quintet "Miles Smiles"
MOBILE FIDELITY/MFSL/MOFI
2 LP's 45rpm 180g, Gatefold
LIMITED EDITION of 4000 NUMBERED
Made in R.T.I. U.S.A.

The second great quintet of Miles was one of the finest small jazz combo. Originally released in 1966, guided not by chordal patterns but open responses to melodies. Music would never again be the same. Neither will experiencing Miles Smiles once you hear this definitive-sounding vinyl reissue.

Mofi takes a landmark effort. Davis and company play against coal-black backgrounds that serve to illuminate every detail, texture, and nuance. Superb separation and plentiful air allow instruments to fully blossom.

Davis and Wayne Shorter's horns crackle with electricity. Ron Carter's bass attains unprecedented fluidity and dimensionality. Tony Williams' drums burst, splash, and swing with terrific fervor. Herbie Hancock's 88s dance with a communal dynamic.

Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme

Includes "Scarborough Fair", "Homeward Bound" and "The 59th Street Bridge Song".

Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System that Brings to Light Meticulous Production, Harmonies, and Tones in Lifelike Clarity.

The liner notes on the back cover ring as true now as they did upon the record's original release in 1966 "Today's popular music is in good shape indeed – at least the portion of it represented by this album. It has strength and it has beauty, it has lyricism, meaning and, above all, that quality of broad appeal which still retains form. And its music speaks for more than the moment. The songs in this album are songs for all time." Indeed, they are, and they can now be experienced in highest fidelity.
