Remastered to perfection, quality pressing at 45RPM, nice thick gatefold cover, one of my all time favorite jazz albums from 60`s, i`m happy.

304 Park Avenue South (copied from my Blue Note Labels Guide) – “Fake Vinyl”

“I call these The South Parks. Scorpio Records NJ have for over a decade manufactured or licensed the manufacture of RINOs (Records In Name Only) of Blue Note and other collectible period labels including Prestige, Tempo, Limelight and others. You want a Mobley 1568 for $15? Scorpio make one.

These digital-to-vinyl transfers use the modern Blue Note address 304 Park Avenue S NYC on the classic Blue & White label. Note the absence of the “Inc” and the “R”: (it’s ironic). The jacket is photo-reproduced on modern plastic-finish card, with original liner notes but no indication of modern name of manufacturer or date of production ie all the “original” detail, but the modern printing technology is an instant giveaway. They pop up on eBay described to snare the unwary. “Recorded in 1957!! Mint!! Still sealed!!!” These records have all of the disadvantages of vinyl with none of its advantages.

Scorpios have been pressed in tens of thousands and are sold widely at around $10-15. That said, there are worse ways to spend $15 and I bought quite a few when I was starting out. For some people, a Scorpio is as close as they will ever get to owning the legendary Mobley 1568”.

A superb session. I do prefer the stereo mix over the mono mix, though. Most Blue Notes from this era and before sound better in mono in my honest opinion, but this particular record sounds best in stereo. The session is on fire, and you imagine yourself somewhere in the middle east, accompanied by belly dancers and camels. A masterpiece.

Basra is a classic mid-60s jazz album by a young and dynamic drummer. The LP never slows down. The mood is mystic, moody. Everyone - Joe Henderson, tenor sax; Steve Swallow, bass and Steve Kuhn, piano - have robust tone and rhythm. The improvisation is so much better than most of what I hear today. This is a classic album I've enjoyed for 50 years. As usual Rudy Van Gelder gets that up close immediate sound.

This album is a stone cold classic that was never repeated, totally amazing from start to finish.
Joe Henderson and Pete La Roca redefine what can be achieved musically on the track Basra you may wonder if the saxophone is playing Joe Henderson and not the other way around and then you get Pete La Roca's drum solo [outstanding], Malaguena is played to standards not heard before making it a tour de force, but that's just the hard hitting tracks when the group play melodies and harmonize on the rest of the album, On Lazy afternoon you become aware of the breath taking beauty of the pictures these players depict, please do yourself a favour and listen carefully because very few albums were ever made like this.
