Phil Woods & Donald Byrd The Young Bloods Hybrid Mono SACD
Hybrid Mono SACD in Mini LP Jacket!
Mastered By Kevin Gray From Original Mono Master Tapes!
Analogue Productions releases 25 of the most collectible, rarest jazz titles
ever in their Prestige Mono Series on Hybrid Mono SACD.
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.
For this early hard bop date, altoist Phil Woods and trumpeter Donald Byrd were
co-leaders. In fact, the music had at one point earlier on been released with
Byrd getting first billing. Yet Woods, the spirited altoist, contributed four of
the six tunes (including "House of Chan" and "In Walked George") and
consistently takes solo honors on the record. With pianist Al Haig (who did not
record that extensively during this period), bassist Teddy Kotick and drummer
Charlie Persip offering stimulating accompaniment, All Music Guide says "This
is an easily recommended release... for straight-ahead jazz collectors."
