Hybrid Stereo SACD in Mini LP Jacket!
Mastered By Kevin Gray From Original Analog Master Tapes!
Analogue Productions releases 25 of the most collectible, rarest, most
audiophile-sounding Rudy Van Gelder recordings ever made in their Prestige
Stereo Series on Hybrid Stereo SACD.
Mini "old style" gatefold jacket packaging:
These SACD jackets feature printed wraps mounted to chipboard shells, producing
an authentic, "old school" look and feel: also referred to as "mini LP" jackets.
At the time he recorded this album in 1957, Arnett Cobb was in the process of
rebounding from a serious automobile accident that broke both his legs. Cobb's
indomitable spirit shines through in these tracks, whether he is calmly
preaching on "When My Dream Boat Comes Home," grooving down the "Lonesome Road,"
or roaring through the song that is almost as closely associated with him as it
is with Illinois Jacquet — "Flying Home."
There are plenty of good blues, too, and pianist Ray Bryant's eloquence in this
idiom is well exposed. Ray Barretto's conga adds another flavor to the rhythm
section, especially on "Cocktails for Two." With Ray Bryant, Wendell Marshall,
Arthur Taylor and Ray Barretto.
