Billie Holiday
Music For Torching

  (Item #: holidmusic_2008) 

Our Price: $349.99

  • A KILLER copy of one of Billie's best, with Triple Plus (A+++) sound or close to it throughout, you won't believe how good these Shootout Winning sides sound!
  • A superb recording of jazz standards with a great lineup and Billie in top form - plenty of Tubey Magic and especially breathy vocals as well
  • Great performances with stellar sound for It Had to Be You, Come Rain or Come Shine, A Fine Romance and too many more to list
  • "The overall feeling on this 1955 recording is strictly after-hours: the party is long over but a few close friends remain for nightcaps and, is that the sun peeking through the windows?"

White Hot Stamper

Harry "Sweets" Edison
Sweetenings

  (Item #: edisosweet_2005) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • Edison's superb 1958 release makes its Hot Stamper debut here, boasting Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) grades or close to them on both sides
  • The sound on this Roulette original is big, rich and LIVELY, with boatloads of Tubey Magic and three-dimensional space
  • It's hard to imagine finding a copy with a better first side than this one, and side two is right up there with it
  • True, we did not have a big stack of copies for our shootout, but we recognize a killer pressing when we hear one
  • "Harry 'Sweets' Edison added something special to any date in which he took part, but these 1958 sessions he led for Roulette are especially enjoyable.... Edison's trumpet swings effortlessly through a batch of standards and originals."

Nearly White Hot Stamper

Ella Fitzgerald
Whisper Not

  (Item #: fitzgwhisp_2006_1) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • A superb pressing of Ella's wonderful 1967 release with nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) sound from start to finish - just shy of our Shootout Winner
  • This one is doing everything right-- it's bigger, bolder, richer and more clean, clear and open than nearly almost everything else we played
  • Superb engineering from the man behind so many great sounding Verve records, Val Valentin
  • 4 stars: "Whoever decided to put pianist Marty Paich and Ella Fitzgerald together in the studio in 1966 deserves a bit of credit for the great music on Whisper Not. Together, Fitzgerald and Paich deliver a dozen beautifully sung, carefully arranged standards."

Super Hot Stamper

Duke Ellington/Johnny Hodges

Our Price: $149.99

  • This superb jazz double album makes its Hot Stamper debut here with outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER from start to finish
  • What surprised during our shootout was that this later pressing from 1976 actually sounded quite a bit better than virtually all the early pressings we put it up against
  • The Classic Records pressings from 1995 aren't bad, but they head to head they can't begin to compete with a pressing as good as this one
  • Superb engineering from the man behind so many great sounding Verve records, Val Valentin
  • 4 stars: "... this very enjoyable double LP includes two related sessions... Highly recommended in one form or another."

Barney Kessel - Vol. 3: To Swing Or Not To Swing

Our Shootout Winner from 2017

  (Item #: kessetoswi_2017) 



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

This Early Contemporary Yellow Label Mono LP sure has AMAZING SOUND!

Man, this music is a blast when it sounds this good. I don’t think there’s a whole lot you could do to make this music sound any better! It’s one of the best early mono Contemporary LP I’ve ever played. It's so tubey magical and Kessel's guitar sound is out of this world.

Billie Holiday - All Or Nothing At All

Our Shootout Winner from 2018

  (Item #: holidallor_2018) 



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

A KILLER sounding copy with Triple Plus (A+++) sound or very close to it from start to finish, on quiet vinyl to boot. This is one of the best sounding Billie Holiday records we have ever heard - it's even a clear step up from the originals we had on hand. This 2 LP set features most of the tracks from the original release plus another handful of recordings from the same period (1955-1956)

Ella Fitzgerald - Whisper Not

Our Shootout Winner from 2006

  (Item #: fitzgwhisp_2006) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST ELLA FITZGERALD RECORDS I’ve heard in a very long time! I’m telling you, this is Ella at her best! Having just played a lovely sounding copy of Clap Hands, Here Comes Charlie, an album that tends to err on the bright side, I now realize that this album has the opposite problem -- it's a little bit smoother in places than it should be. Of course that's a much more tolerable problem than the reverse.

Ella Fitzgerald - Whisper Not

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: fitzgwhisp_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

Both sides of this original stereo pressing are White Hot - Triple Plus all the way! Breathy, tubey, big and clear, this is the best sound we have ever heard for Whisper Not. Superb engineering from the man behind so many great sounding Verve records, Val Valentin. "These fine-tuned arrangements also provide the perfect launching pad for Fitzgerald to place her own stamp on material associated with other singers."

Oscar Peterson - Peterson + Harry Edison + Eddie Cleanhead Vinson

Reviewed in 2005

  (Item #: peterpeter_2005) 



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

This is a long out of print Pablo LP with AMAZING sound and music. It's one of those superb Allan Sides engineered recordings at Ocean Way, like Basie 88 Street. Demo disc quality sound is the result! With players like these, the music is every bit as good as any jazz record I know of. In other words, I really like this album.

More Oscar Peterson
