Amazing. Lovely job by VMP on this under-rated stunner of an album. 5 stars

Sound is excellent per usual after VMP Classics started using QRP. Flat, dead silent vinyl and a very nice sleeve.

Nice quality reissue but one strange thing. The liner notes use a different font than an original. It’s better than VMP’s Blossom Dearie LP which cropped the heck out of the front cover, but it’s still weird to flip it over and having it look off.
