Avoid! Same as others - opened up brand new and incredibly dirty along with tons of bad scuffs and other marks all over both sides. Garbage quality piece of vinyl.

This is a wonderful reissue of the album. Grundman outdoes himself too many times to count.
I have no original to compare with but Im almost certain this is as good or better.
It sports some fantastic resolution and clarity for all instruments, with the exception of bass. The horns and drums just melt in your ears however, especially with how the concert hall echo and reverb is brought out with great effect here. The EQ is smartly done if it a little high end tipped.
It touts great depth and dynamics with it as well to really bring these tracks to life.
Now while there is some bass to be had here it certainly is the most lacking aspect as most should anticipate considering restriction to 1 disc at 33RPM.
I dont have the 4LP 45RPM Classic nor the 2LP 45RPM ORG, both also by Grundman and Im sure they rectify the bass and brings the whole performance even more into the room.
But for those single disc lovers this can hardly be beat in Stereo.
The vinyl on the 180 gram pressings is very quiet and problem free as well.

Equipment Used:
Rega RP1 with Paratrace tipped Nagaoka MP-200
Cyrus 2 Amplifier
System Fidelity SF-3050 Tower Speakers
Custom made HQ Speaker Cables

Referencing Mingus Ah Um ‎(CD, Album, RE, RM) Legacy CK 65512 US 1999 (matrix DIDP-095450 G3 1A 01):
There are definitely some sonic flaws on this pressing. On "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" and several other tracks there is clearly audible 60/120/180 Hz hum. It's probably more noticeable on headphones, which is how I usually listen, and perhaps most intrusive on "Self-Portrait In Three Colors". Now, I know "authenticity" is supposed to be important on remastered reissues of classics (and it is a great album), but come on. Nobody involved in the making of this record ever WANTED the hum to be in there and be distracting-- which it is-- and it's easy to remove with parametric EQ.
There's worse, though. For example, again on "Pork Pie Hat", the right-channel saxophone during the opening and closing ensemble melody statements is plagued with a VERY distracting buzzing/crackling distortion. It's bad from the start up to the 50-second mark, but from 3:38 to the end it's just HORRIFIC. (LIsten at 4:12- 4:15-- yeeesh!) Does this buzzing result from (A) miking the horn way too close, (B) some kind of digital remastering screwup, or (C), heaven forbid, mastering those sections from a worn vinyl copy? One would hope (C) is the least likely source, although it does SOUND like that.
I see most of the reviewers here are listening to vinyl, so: Does anyone know if the vintage LP pressings contain that same crackle/buzz? (I've located about six frequencies to kill in EQ to reduce the noise, but totally removing it might be impossible.)

Bought brand new. Does have some occasional surface noise but not as terrible as some other albums that I've bought recently. Listenable. The music is excellent, pressing quality is average at best.

My copy has an electronic 1-second sound embedded in the middle of Goodbye Pork Pie Hat... A deal-breaker. Also most likely sourced from a CD.

Purchsaed brand new, sealed. There's a few spots throughout both sides that are very noisy and scratchy for just a second, that won't go away without cleaning. Makes it very annoying to listen to, not worth the money.
