            My first Tone Poet and got me hooked until quality has recently started to decline.

              Just a beautiful release with an incredible soundstage. This is my second Tone Poet purchase behind John Coltrane's Blue Train 2LP stereo release, which is an outlier in this series. I am very happy with this purchase and bought it on sale, which saved me $10. Currently researching which Tone Poet I want to purchase next, which just might be Schofield/Metheny's 'I Can See Your House From Here'.

                  [Turntable used for this review:
                  Rega P3:RB880 tonearm,Shure V15 Mk3 Jico VN-35HE stylus tip, Delrin Platter, Rega Neo, (4)Isoacoustic Orea bronze feet.
                  Phono Stage Whest Audio TWO.2 class a dual mono fully balanced phono stage, 50db/47k ohms,HOMC setting]

                  Highly Recommended for ALL lovers of;Jazz,Bop,Hard Bop,etc.& hifi enthusiast/audiophiles alike,my copy is fairly noise free flat(180gms),no real distortion & came in a poly lined white inner sleeve & the high standard Tone Poet gatefold.
                  What I personally like about this excellent album is it features:Donald Byrd(trumpet),Hank Mobley(tenor sax),Paul Chambers(bass),Art Blakey(drums) & of course Mr Clark on piano,& it could be anyone of their album they all feature so prominently,full dynamics with great stereo separation,fine imaging alone with air & ambiance,five stars*****

                    No distortion and rich sound, but background noise and crackles on B2 and B3.

                      one of the best sounding TPs i own, i have about a dozen and this one is at the top sonically.
