Super Hot Stamper

Vince Guaraldi
Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus

  (Item #: guarajazzi_1909_1) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • An outstanding copy of this classic audiophile favorite, with solid Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last
  • You'd be hard-pressed to find a copy that's this well balanced, yet big and lively, with such wonderful clarity in the mids and highs
  • Sublime, practically magical jazz trio sound (and music!) that belongs in every audiophile's collection - on vintage vinyl that's as quiet as we can find
  • 5 stars: "Here is Vince Guaraldi's breakthrough album — musically, commercially, in every which way... The whole album evokes the ambience of San Francisco's jazz life in the 1960s as few others do."

Super Hot Stamper

Vince Guaraldi
Jazz Impressions Of Charlie Brown

  (Item #: guarajazzi_charl_1910) 

Our Price: $119.99

  • With outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound from top to bottom, this copy has a lot going for it
  • Richer, warmer, more natural, more relaxed, this is what vintage analog is all about, that smooth sound that never calls attention to itself and just lets the music flow
  • Guaraldi introduced the world to his unique, melodic, elegantly simple style with this very album - only a pressing this good does the timeless score justice
  • 5 stars: "The most remarkable thing, besides the high quality of Guaraldi's whimsically swinging tunes, is that he did not compromise his art one iota for the cartoon world; indeed, he sounds even more engaged, inventive, and lighthearted in his piano work here than ever."

Hot Stamper

Vince Guaraldi
Jazz Impressions Of Charlie Brown

  (Item #: guarajazzi_charl_1909) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • You'll find very good Hot Stamper sound on both sides of this wonderful pressing
  • Guaraldi introduced the world to his unique, melodic, elegantly simple style with this very album - only a pressing this good does the timeless score justice
  • This copy is exceptionally QUIET for a Vince Guaraldi album, playing Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus - they don't get any quieter in our experience
  • 5 stars: "The most remarkable thing, besides the high quality of Guaraldi's whimsically swinging tunes, is that he did not compromise his art one iota for the cartoon world; indeed, he sounds even more engaged, inventive, and lighthearted in his piano work here than ever."

45 RPM Acoustech Debunked

  (Item #: guarajazzi_acoustech) 



Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame pressing and another Heavy Vinyl LP debunked from the consistently execrable Analogue Productions label, purveyors of bad sounding vinyl from day one.

Keeping the Players Together

  (Item #: guarajazzi_wtlf) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises, here discussing the importance of transparency, ambience and resolution.

The arrangement of the players is straightforward, with the bass hard left, drums hard right (with leakage well to the left on the cymbals, but that's another story), and Guaraldi on piano in the center. (The first track of side two reverses this arrangement; why I have no idea.)

Here's the crazy thing about this recording: The best copies really connect up the space each of the players is in. I heard it during the shootout, and I can't recall if it actually happened more than once or twice, but I know I heard it. They are all live, they are all on the same soundstage, but on most copies you would hardly know it.

The Mono & Most Other Pressings Suck

  (Item #: guarajazzi_options) 



A word of advice: Stick with stereo on this title; the MONO pressings aren't worth anybody's time (scratch that: any audiophile's time). The early colored vinyl mono pressing we played was awful in every way.

Our advice: Steer clear at anything more than a buck.
