    I struggled with the first copy i tried... too many non fills. I tried another and its close to perfection with almost no noise throughout. Super flat and centre'd too. Plays great. Sounds great. Is great!

      Insanely great mixing and mastering on this release. Wide soundstage with very clear and distinct instrument separation. The flutes and and keyboards are the clearest I’ve ever heard on a recording. This completely blows away the streaming versions I’ve heard of this album (spotify and amazon music).

      The pressing is excellent as well - dead silent and flat.

        Nice packaging, dynamic, dead silent, and maybe the heaviest record I own (physically if not sonically). If every new release were like this one, the world would be a beautiful place.

              This is another great sounding release from the guys. Don't know how they do it but highly recommended. I have all of them and the first is probably my favorite but this one sounds great and another excellent selection of jazz tunes.

                My favorite Wamono compilation thus far. And that's saying a lot 'cos I love all the others.
                Great sound, great groove. Just love it.

                    There's really no reason not to give this 5 stars. I tried to find something wrong with it... but I really couldn't. Stellar selection of tracks and it just sounds phenomenal.

                      The sort of record that will lead to many of us self justifying their imminent hours of shopping for cart & styli upgrades.
                      Toe tapping & chin stroking optional but to be expected.
