Donald Byrd
The Cat Walk

  (Item #: byrd_catwa_1905) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • This pressing of Donald Byrd's brilliant 1962 release boasts outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • Credit must go to Rudy Van Gelder once again for capturing the jazz energy of this superbly sympathetic ensemble
  • These sides are lively and fun, with the kind of sound RVG managed pretty consistently to get on tape
  • 4 stars: "Donald Byrd and baritone saxophonist Pepper Adams worked together on several recordings between 1958 and 1961, and The Cat Walk (released on LP in 1962) is among the best. Byrd's playing throughout is typically sleek and lyrical, and Adams' sturdy, husky baritone sound is the perfect counterbalance, making The Cat Walk an essential Byrd purchase."

Gerry Mulligan
Gerry Mulligan '63

  (Item #: mulligerry_1902_1905) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • This original Verve stereo pressing boasts stunning Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound or close to it from first note to last
  • This copy is hard to fault - big, open, clear, with space and three-dimensionality that modern pressings can only dream of
  • "With originals by Bob Brookmeyer, Gary McFarland and the baritonist/leader (in addition to the standards "Little Rock Getaway" and "My Kind of Love"), this is a high-quality if rather brief program. Trumpeter Clark Terry and guitarist Jim Hall co-star with Mulligan in the solo department. It is a pity that this orchestra could not prosper; all five of its recordings are worth getting." - All Music

Our Price: $149.99

  • 4 1/2 Stars: "This album also signifies a distinct departure from the decibel-drowning electrified offerings of his previous efforts, providing instead an exceedingly more folk- and roots-based confab... [Jon] Mark's precision and tasteful improvisational skills [on acoustic guitar] place this incarnation into heady spaces."

  • An outstanding vintage mono pressing with Double Plus (A++) sound from start to finish
  • Big, rich and full-bodied with lovely breathy vocals - this All Tube Mastered pressing has the right sound for this music
  • Although this is a stereo recording, the goofy stereo mix sticks Dinah way out in one channel, ruining any sense of being in her presence as a performer, so our early mono here is the only way to go
  • "The songs focus on love, and they're distinguished by Washington's ability to mingle loss and resignation with the promise of the future and a steely determination to make it happen. Ultimately Washington's art is the romance of experience itself, its enduring truths and possibilities etched in her unforgettable voice. -- Stuart Broomer
