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.
This reissue marks the first time ever that the stereo master tapes of this landmark title have been used.
In 1957, Miles Davis, high on the success of his recent collaborations with his
old friend Gil Evans, persuaded Prestige Records to give Evans his own record
date. Evans packed the resulting album with the brilliance that music insiders
had recognized since his days as an arranger for Claude Thornhill in the 1940s
and his work on Davis' Birth of the Cool recordings. Writing for only 11
instruments, Evans used his wizardry with dynamics, motion and harmonic voicings
to create orchestral effects suggesting a substantially larger orchestra. His
settings stimulated his musicians to inspired improvisation. Among the soloists
are trombonist Jimmy Cleveland, saxophonists Steve Lacy and Lee Konitz, and
Evans himself, making his first recorded appearance as a pianist.
