Great Sounding Pressing for the money.
No Pops, maybe because I clean all my vinyl with the cheap Spin Clean system.
On some old records it has made such a difference.

Avoid.... if music would be that unaffordable from it's first release, who would be able to listen to it. Quality and affordability have to meet somewhere else. this is just sick. With that approach and attitude I'd rather enjoy a YouTube clip. And not even a limited release of 300 records justifies this.

This edition has serious sound quality issues. There are better versions out there.

Serious freak out material even for the most versatile jazz players at that time and still today ... One of my favourite records.

The second record from Jazz Images that I bought, and probably the last. The records are dirt cheap here in Europe and my first JI buy, Sonny Rollins' Saxophone Colossus doesn't sound that bad. So I thought I would give Brilliant Corners a try too. Especially since the record has a rather high score here on Discogs. I can't imagine why. Despite the neat looking, flat and silent vinyl the sound quality is a shame. No dynamics, no instrument separation, no bite, no nothing... I think even a low bit rate mp3 would sound better. The photographs are the only reason I can think of for buying this pressing, and I guess the clue is already in the name of the label. Mr. Monk's piece of art deserves much better.

I recently picked this up at a record store in Singapore. Unfortunately, this pressing does not sound great, in my view.

Above average pressing quality. Occasional pop or click, but they are relatively few and far between. Music is brilliant and well mastered.
