I bought 2 of the jazz images this weekend. Moanin and something else. I thought they were kinda reissued from the mastertapes. Apparently not. The sound imho is impeccable! I have a very good stereoset and was amazed by the fact they sound deadquiet and very dynamic. Don’t get fooled bij the fact they are not originals......superb sound and superb packaging

I haven't had a poor pressing from Jazz Images yet. They do an excellent job and as far as the sourced audio quality rumors, just do your research. The label was founded under the parent label Elemental Music which is co-founded by Zev Feldman a well respected Jazz archival producer and sound engineer. Just look him up online and you'll realize that the pressings are legit.

I own the Gil Evans - Out Of The Cool as well as Max Roach - We Insist ! as vinyl and the Eric Dolphy - Outward Bound 2 CD from Jazz Images.
The vinyl is excellent in my humble opinion. Very good sound. Clean pressing.Nice artwork. Overall a very good presentation. And all this at an affordable price.
The Eric Dolphy CD`s are also excellent. 4 diverse recordings on 2 CD`s.
Personally, I am absolutely satisfied with the Jazz Images label.

I don't get the bad reviews on here. These are excellent pressings at a fantastic price. There is just NO reason for any vinyl to cost more than $15 max, and Jazz Images more than satisfies the audiophile listener at a decent price. There will always be those with unreasonably discriminating standards, but unless you've got some insane sound system and dog hearing, I doubt you'd be able to tell any difference. I'm getting all my jazz from this label.

I have listened to 6 or 7 of these and they sound great. The vinyl is dead quiet. I like them. Beats paying 3 times the price for a noisy original. I don't get the hate and "bad quality" comments. These 50's jazz recordings aren't the greatest to begin with. It's not like the imaging is amazing in a mono 1950's record. We're not talking Steely Dan here. All of the Jazz Images issues I've heard sounded good and the look and feel of the jackets and vinyl were first class. 180 Gram vinyl, plastic lined paper sleeves, gatefold jackets. I've heard bootleg crap. This isn't bootleg crap.

Discogs should put "Jazz Images" reissues as "Unofficial", AFAIK. Very bad quality reissues, BTW.

Another garbage Euro Public Domain label, this time using alternate covers to sell albums. Just like Wax Time, Jazz Wax, and all the rest, when you get down to brass tacks. Don't be fooled by these.

It works like this: European copyright laws allow labels like this to operate, but they don't have access to master tapes (or anything close to them, like a hi-rez copy) because they don't pay royalties or licensing fees to those that hold the masters. The copyright holder doesn't get paid, which means the musicians' estates don't get paid either. Of course if you buy these, you get an LP sourced from either a store bought CD or a torrented download. Pretty much pointless, both from an ethical standpoint and a practical one. You're better off cutting out the middleman and buying a lot of these albums on in print, legit CDs for $5-10 a pop. The worst part is that many of these albums are readily available on legit new vinyl through the original labels (or a closely related label) if you bother to look for them.
