There is no need to present this classic originally released by CBS in 1959, now a Sony label and republished recently by Music on Vinyl, a Dutch (thanks, Mario...) label specialising in high quality vinyl reissues of jazz classics and more.
This is actually a disc from my daughter's collection - she is a keen jazz enthusiast, happily listening to Charlie Mingus, Miles Davis and Bill Evans as well as more classic jazz players.
On this record, Blue Rondo a la Turk and Take Five have taken a life of their own, and I would surprised if I were to find somebody not knowing them.
BTW, I am planning to give you snippets of each disc reviewed at a later stage, once I have mastered the software driving the USB output of my new phono stage.
The drums and the bass guitar are the absolute stars of this recording.
During some of the solos, it was like having the drummer in the room (without the neighbours calling the police...)
