    I had a standard black copy which I swear sounded better than this indie "upgrade '

        My white copy sounds excellent -- ordered a copy from Banquet Records with Makaya's signature. Far and away my favorite jazz release of the last few years.

          One of the best jazz releases of 2022. My copy sounds fantastic. No pops and clicks. Pressing and mixing is top notch.

              Have to confirm what everybody else mentioned - crackles ang pops across the whole record. Still listenable (heard worse mixes and worse pressings)

                Agree with the other comments. Beautiful music, but average mixing and some crackles and pops across the record. Shame

                  Amazing music.. but.. Am I the only one who think it sounds horrendous? clicks and cracks all the way through.. muffled sound.. not a very pleasant listening experience.. Is it the pressing? I'm just thinking I'll simply avoid all coloured and fancy vinyl editions from now on.. isn't everything about the music anyway?

                    Sounds alright but mastered very soft. Minus 3 dB at max on my xone:23 mixer.

                      My copy had constant clicks on the last track of side A. An ultrasonic cleaning had no effect. I sent it back, maybe the second copy will be better...
                      My second copy is a lot better...
