White Hot Stamper

Duke Ellington
Newport 1958

  (Item #: ellinnewpo_1908) 

Our Price: $299.99

  • With Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sides, we guarantee you've never heard Newport 1958 sound as good as it does on this Six Eye
  • Three-dimensional space and ambience, awith Tubey Magic by the boatload - this 30th Street recording (with the exception of two tracks that actually are live) shows just how good Columbia's engineers were back then
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The set is highlighted by an exciting trumpet feature ("El Gato"), "Jazz Festival Jazz" (which has cool and hot sections with impressions of both modern and New Orleans jazz), and a showcase for Clark Terry on flugelhorn. A special treat is Gerry Mulligan's only recording with Ellington, in which he duets with the other great master of the baritone sax, Harry Carney."

White Hot Stamper

Miles Davis
Birth of the Cool

  (Item #: davisbirth_1904_1907) 

Our Price: $299.99
Sale Price: $249.00 (You save $50.99 / 17%)


  • An incredible pressing of this Groundbreaking Jazz Classic, with Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound on the first side and Double Plus (A++) on the second
  • This vintage mono pressing will show you just how well-recorded these 1949-50 sessions were
  • It's the records they made from these tapes (more often from the dubs of them) that have given everybody the wrong idea about these wonderful sounding recordings
  • 5 stars: "So dubbed because these three sessions are where the sound known as cool jazz essentially formed, Birth of the Cool remains one of the defining, pivotal moments in jazz. This is where the elasticity of bop was married with skillful, big-band arrangements and a relaxed, subdued mood that made it all seem easy, even at its most intricate."

White Hot Stamper

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

Dave Brubeck Trio Featuring Gerry Mulligan - Compadres

Our Shootout Winner from 2017

  (Item #: brubecompa_2017) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

If you haven't heard one of our killer Gerry Mulligan vintage Columbia pressings, with the fullness of its lower midrange bringing out all the magic of the man's remarkably rich baritone, this is your chance.

And if too much baritone sax is not your thing, this may be just the right record for you, with Brubeck taking half the leads.

Stick with Stereo on This One

  (Item #: brubecompa_mono) 



Stick with stereo on this album. The Mono pressings -- at least the ones we've played -- aren't worth anybody's time (scratch that: any audiophile's time). The mono is dramatically smaller, more recessed and more lifeless than even the worst of the stereo pressings we played.

Here are more records we don't think sound very good in MONO.

Here are some titles that have the potential to sound amazing in MONO.

What to Listen For - The Audience

  (Item #: brubecompa_wtlf) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on What to Listen For (WTLF) as you critically evaluate your copy of the album, or any live album for that matter.

As is the case with most live albums, the sound of the crowd tells you a lot about the recording, and on this copy the crowd sounded exceptionally clear and natural.

Dave Brubeck Trio w/ Gerry Mulligan - Blues Roots

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: brubeblues_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

A very different quartet appears on this record, with Mulligan's baritone sax replacing Desmond's alto and a whole new rhythm section behind both of these veteran leaders.

We've been surprised how good these mid- to late-'60s Brubeck recordings can sound. There's still plenty of Tubey Magical richness on the best pressings of these records, a quality that is especially important when trying to reproduce the full-bodied sound of a baritone sax.

Gerry Mulligan & Stan Getz - Gerry Mulligan Meets Stan Getz

Reviewed in 2011

  (Item #: mulligerry_2011) 


This is a very nice looking Verve Trumpeter Label Mono LP from 1957. Side one is wonderful and has the better sound here. It has more extension up top; the baritone sax is especially well reproduced.

Both sides of course have somewhat tubby bass, the type that characterizes all tube recordings from the ’50s and ’60s. Side two is a bit more veiled. The midrange is as musical as it is on side one but has less top end and therefore comes across as kind of dull. Musical and involving, but not as lively as it could be.

Supposedly the stereo pressings of this album are full of added echo, which is the reason Steve Hoffman chose to release the mono version of the album on gold CD for DCC back in the day. It’s one of our favorite DCC CDs; Steve did his usual top quality mastering of it.

Gerry Mulligan - And His Concert Jazz Band On Tour

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: mulliandhi_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

White Hot on side two, nearly White on side one, this live album is crazy good sounding on this copy. Huge space, size and clarity, with Tubey Magical richness befitting its 1960 recording dates. On the second track of side two the swingin' Zoot Sims is as immediate and real as any sax player can be.

Gerry Mulligan - The Concert Jazz Band

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: mulliconce_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

If you've never heard a good All Tube Recording of the baritone sax, buy this record -- it will blow your mind!

Huge amounts of ambience fill out the space the extends from wall to wall (and all the way to the back wall of the studio), leaving plenty of room around each of the players.

Gerry Mulligan - The Gerry Mulligan Songbook Vol. 1

Reviewed in 2009

  (Item #: mulligerry) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

This original COLLECTOR QUALITY World Pacific Jazz LP has VERY GOOD sound and is EXCEPTIONALLY QUIET. Zoot Sims, Al Cohen, Lee Konitz and Allan Eager all play on this record. A pretty hot lineup if I do say so!

Miles Davis - Birth of the Cool

Our Shootout Winner from 2017

  (Item #: davisbirth_2017) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

Birth Of The Cool in White Hot Stamper form! We've been trying to find copies of this classic music from 1949-1950 that really delivered in an audiophile sense, but as you might imagine it was one tough task. We checked out Mono and Stereo copies, Originals and Reissues... basically anything we could get our hands on. It wasn't easy and it wasn't cheap, but we managed to find a pressing here that delivers excellent sound throughout.

Paul Desmond & Gerry Mulligan - Two Of A Mind

Our Shootout Winner from 2018

  (Item #: desmotwoof_2018) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

THIS is the sound of Tubey Magic. No recordings will ever be made like this again, and no CD will ever capture what is in the grooves of this record. There actually IS a CD of this album, and youtube videos of it too, but those of us with good turntables could care less.

And if you have an especially good turntable and the system that goes with it, we think you will find a world of difference in the sound of our Hot Stamper early pressing and any of the Heavy Vinyl records being produced of this very title.
