Here's How it was done:

Using only the original analog master tapes, the renowned team of Steve Hoffman ON 3 OF THESE TITLES & Kevin Gray remastered and cut all of the titles at AcousTech Mastering, which features a pure Class-A disc-cutting system. AcousTech is located at Record Technology, Inc. the plant where the vinyl was pressed. It is a tremendous sonic advantage to have the pressing plant plating department & mastering room in the same facility as Steve & Kevin could cut a lacquer and plated immediately. This prevents the degradation of the grooves in a lacquer which is very fragile to quick deterioration.

And of course cutting at 45 speed is the audiophile choice for the highes quality. A 45-RPM record is sonically superior to a 33 1/3 variety because of a 35 percent reduction of groove curvature compared to a 33 1/3 cut.. It means that while you can't fit as much music into a 45, the undukations of the groove that your cartridge has to track are stretched over a longer distance. For these reissues, the music was displaced onto four sides, meaning each side contains about 10 minutes of music.

This is the ultimate reissues. The only way you'll get closer to this classic music is to listen to the master tapes or have been in the studio with the artist originally during the actual session.

SONNY ROLLINS - ON IMPULSE - AUDIOPHILE 45 RPM SEALED 2 LP SET  LIMITED EDITION LOW NUMBERED  #109 -

Limited Edition 180 Gram, 45rpm 2LP Set!
Only the 1st 1,500 Copies are Numbered!

Cut by Kevin Gray at 45 RPM and packaged in extra-thick cardboard stock gatefold jackets!


A persistently provocative set of standards: Sonny delivers along with Ray Bryant, Walter Booker, and Mickey Rokar.

Sonny Rollins made some excellent recordings for Impulse in the mid-1960s, a time when his unassailable skills and acrobatic approach made him a leading saxophonist, and one of the few to rival John Coltrane. On Impulse has only five tracks, but each tells the complex, glorious story of Rollins' talent, especially in the stretched-out solos where his knack for inventively, endlessly de- and re-constructing is evident.

SONNY ROLLINS VOLUME 2 -AUDIOPHILE 45 RPM SEALED 2 LP SET  LIMITED EDITION LOW NUMBERED  #109 

 

Incredible Jazz Records + the original analog master tapes + cut at 45 RPM + mastered by Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman at AcousTech + pressed on two 180-gram virgin vinyl LPs by RTI = THE ULTIMATE LP REISSUE!

The same formula that made the Fantasy 45 Series perhaps the most successful audiophile reissue collection ever is now being reapplied to Blue Note reissues!

Outside of Paul Chambers, who was employed as Miles Davis’s bassist at this time, all of the other players on these April 1957 RVG Hackensack dates were leaders of their own renowned groups; a reflection of the respect they all shared for the date leader, Sonny Rollins. Besides Chambers, with Jay Jay Johnson on trombone, Art Blakey behind the drums and alternating pianists Thelonious Monk and Horace Silver, who both play on the now-famous version of “Misterioso”, the words All-Star seem almost demeaning to this conclave. The resulting recordings burst forth with confidence and enthusiasm, capturing a fire and passion usually found only with uninhibited live dates and not the constraints of a recording studio. Exceptional versions of “Poor Butterfly” and “You Stepped Out Of a Dream” elevate this record to monumental status.

Features:
• Mono
• Numbered & Limited to 2500 copies
• Original analog master tapes
• 45 RPM
• Two 180g Virgin Vinyl LPs
• Mastered by Kevin Gray & Steve Hoffman at AcousTech
• Pressed by RTI

Musicians:
Sonny Rollins, tenor saxophone
Jay Jay Johnson, trombone
Horace Silver, piano
Thelonious Monk, piano
Paul Chambers, bass
Art Blakey, drums

Selections:
1. Why Don't I
2. Wail March
3. Misterioso
4. Reflections
5. You Stepped Out of a Dream
6. Poor Butterfly

 

 

 

 

 

SONNY ROLLINS - CONTEMPORARY LEADERS AUDIOPHILE 45 RPM SEALED 2 LP SET  LIMITED EDITION LOW NUMBERED  #138  OF THE 1000 PIECES EVER PRESSED. - This was Sonny’s second Contemporary album and his second West Coast session, a year and a half after the historic Way Out West. Jazz labels acquire “personalities” not only from the musical tastes of the owner/recording director but also from the roster of musicians signed to the company. The “Contemporary Sound”— every bit as distinctive as the competing “Blue Note Sound,” “Prestige Sound,” and “Pacific Jazz Sound”— was largely a product of the work by Hampton Hawes, Barney Kessel and Shelly Manne, all of whom had won Down Beat awards for their respective instruments and recorded as “The Poll Winners.”

Musicians:
Sonny Rollins, tenor sax
Hampton Hawes, piano
Barney Kessel, guitar
Leroy Vinnegar, bass
Shelly Manne, drums
Victor Feldman, vobraharp on "You"

Selections:
1. I've Told Ev'ry Little Star
2. Rock-A-Bye Your Baby With A Dixie Melody
3. How High The Moon
4. You
5. I've Found A New Baby
6. Alone Together
7. In The Chapel In The Moonlight
