Each tone poet I listen to blows me away more than the last, but this record right here… this is exceptionally done. For under $40 (if you can still find it retail), this is why I love what Blue Note is doing to keep their catalog alive.

Beautifully recorded and even better played, I agree with others that Morgan was in top form here. The Night in Tunisia is incredibly riveting, and the solos are wonderful. The horns are recorded a little hot, but as others have mentioned, this seems consistent with other Tone Poet releases.

My only complaint is that the vinyl pressing itself is not top-notch, it is quiet but not the quietest, and I heard a couple of clicks (also on A1). It's disappointing that quality control on these is not the most vigilant, but in general I am satisfied.

Morgan is playing his A game on this one. The horns are at the front and on fire! Tone Poet releases are usually very kind to me, unfortunately this one has a series of clicks on A1, I’d return it if I didn’t buy it half way around the world.

Superb reissue of this Blue Note recording. Excellent mastering and the pressing gods seem to have been kind with this one.
Perfect.

This is amazing! great sound, If you can put this record on after a classic series blue note record and you will see the how better the sound quality can be with these Tone Poet releases. Must have if you are a Morgan fan, I was lucky to get this on blue note even with a big discount!

I really don't understand why they chose stereo for this release of a record that originally came out in '57.

Anyone else bothered by Morgan and Adams both coming out of the right channel?

This is a stellar-sounding production. It is easily one of the clearest sounding and best overall quality pressings in my collection. It’s crystal clear, balanced, flat and quiet. What all vinyl should be and if you told me I was listening to an UHQR on 200g clarity vinyl, I’d absolutely believe you.

Beautiful release of this album. Great sound as expected from combining RTI + KPG.
