White Hot Stamper

Harold Land
West Coast Blues!

  (Item #: land_westc_1911_01) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • Truly superb sound can be found on both sides of this Jazzland recording, with each earning Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) grades
  • Wally Heider, recording in San Francisco in 1960, captured the jazz excitement on tape, and George Horn took those tapes and mastered them faultlessly
  • "Tenor saxophonist Harold Land leads an all-star sextet that includes guitarist Wes Montgomery, trumpeter Joe Gordon, pianist Barry Harris, bassist Sam Jones and drummer Louis Hayes... The music is as well-played and swinging as one would expect from this superior bop group."

White Hot Stamper

The Curtis Counce Group
Volume 1 - Landslide

  (Item #: counclands_2003) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • A STUNNING copy of the group's 1956 release with Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound on both sides - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • The clarity and transparency on this vintage pressing are wonderful, but more importantly it's the unerringly correct tonality that's most impressive when you play these real Contemporary pressings against the competition
  • Yet another amazing All Tube Contemporary recording from Roy DuNann and Lester Koenig at the beginning of the stereo era
  • 4 1/2 stars: "During 1956-1957, bassist Curtis Counce led an excellent Los Angeles-based hard bop quintet... All of Counce's recordings are well-worth getting by collectors [and especially audiophiles] interested in 1950s straight-ahead jazz [with top quality sound]."

Super Hot Stamper

Bill Evans
Quintessence

  (Item #: evansquint_1912) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • Outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound can be found on both sides of this wonderful Bill Evans album, a Better Records favorite since we first heard it some years ago
  • Evans is joined by an all-star lineup of Harold Land, Kenny Burrell, Ray Brown and the great Philly Joe Jones
  • Sonic highlights include a breathy, full sax; a big, solid piano; well-defined acoustic bass; and guitar tone that's tubey and warm
  • "Most of pianist Bill Evans' recordings were in a trio format, making this quintet date a nice change of pace... the results are quite tasteful and explorative in a subtle way."

Super Hot Stamper

The Curtis Counce Group
Carl's Blues

  (Item #: counccarls_1908_11_01) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • A superb sounding copy on the real Contemporary label, boasting outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound from start to finish - fairly quiet vinyl throughout
  • This vintage pressing has the studio space, presence, driving energy, and midrange magic that’s almost always missing from whatever 180g reissue (at 33 or 45, don't fall for that BS) has been made from the 59 year old tapes
  • "Although the Curtis Counce Quintet was not a commercial success, their four Contemporary albums were all timeless in their own way, undated examples of high-quality hard bop from the late '50s. Excellent music that still sounds fresh four decades later."

Bill Evans - Quintessence

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: evansquint_2012) 



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

STUNNING SOUND THROUGHOUT -- this is one of the best sounding Bill Evans records we've ever heard! Side one here earned our top A+++ grade while side two earned a very strong A++. Both sides are super rich and full-bodied with lots of energy and considerable dynamic power. There aren't too many '70s jazz records that sound like this!

Our Shootout Winner from 2017

  (Item #: sheldjacks_2017) 



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

If you like the sound of relaxed, tube-mastered jazz -- and what red blooded audiophile doesn't -- you can't do much better than Jack Sheldon And His All-Star Band. The warmth and immediacy of the sound here are guaranteed to blow practically any Big Band record you own right out of the water.

The Curtis Counce Group - Landslide

Our Shootout Winner from 2008

  (Item #: counclands_2008) 



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

This very nice looking Contemporary Yellow Label LP has the BREATH OF LIFE! Both the sax and the trumpet sound superb - you can really hear the air moving through the instruments. The clarity and transparency are superb, and the tonality is Right On The Money. The generous extension up top lets the cymbals really come to life.
