The Audio Beat 2011 Recording Of The Year

Michael Fremer Rated 10/10 Music, 10/10 Sonics

No Noise Reduction, Limiting, Compression, or Equalization Involved on Location Recording or Transfer of Master Tapes to Lacquers

Pure Pleasure always  great  to bring obscure 
 treasures to light. In the case of rescuing Art Pepper’s 
 legendary shows at Ronnie Scott’s in 1980, the label has 
struck pure gold. Originally recorded for the long-defunct Mole 
Records, these records became nearly impossible to find and, 
if you did manage to locate them, incredibly expensive.
This remastered 7LP set includes both Mole releases as well as 17 
previously unreleased tracks, courtesy of Pepper’s wife having 
uncovered the lost material.
The performances are simply fantastic. Pepper’s playing is 
awash in nuance, and the Milcho Leviev Quartet is in constant 
sync with the saxophone master. Moreover, the audience is 
so quiet that you almost forget the music is played before a 
crowd. And, there’s only a slight duplication of material, with 
“Red Car” and “Ophelia” played at both the June 27 and 28 shows.
However, the different renditions, performed on backto-back days, reveal His  genius. His audience banter, also 
preserved on the albums, adds to the fun and realism.
As for the sound? Studio-like, with the venue’s dimensions 
perfectly recreated. All 14 LP sides are immaculately clean; 
not a click or a pop anywhere, and BIG dynamics throughout. 
Better still, the liner notes claim that the records were made 
“using multi-microphones in a straight stereo mix with no noise 
reduction, limiting, compression or EQ.”

 

The set also includes a booklet with photos, program notes, 

 

and commentary—great for any aficionado. Whether you are 
a completist that owns practically everything, or a relative 
newcomer to jazz or analog, this box set should be in your 
collection. —Jeff Dorgay Tone Audio

 

The Audio Beat 2011 Recording Of The Year

 

 

Michael Fremer Rated 10/10 Music, 10/10 Sonics

The Complete at Ronnie Scott's Club London - June 1980. Includes 17 performances that were previously unavailable along with ALL the tracks on the Mole Jazz Albums: Blues For The Fisherman and True Blues. 

This recording was made using multi-microphones in a straight stereo mix without any noise reduction system, limiting, compression or equalization on either the location or on the transfer of the master tapes to the laquers from which the final pressings are made. Mastered by Ray Staff at Air Mastering, Lyndhurst Hall, London. 

"The live recording quality is superb (though as with any live recording there are occasional glitches): intimate and closely miked, it presents a small club front row perspective that’s long on power, timbral accuracy and dynamics and short on room ambience.... The Pallas pressing quality is high, the packaging, including a cloth textured box first class and the annotation, complete." 

 

 

After you’ve gone through this seven LP set for the first time you’ll feel like popping the cork on a bottle yourself to celebrate  your good sense in buying and consuming this set that a decade ago would have been impossible to think could ever be issued on vinyl LPs cut from analogue tape.Thanks  for having the guts to proceed with such a costly set that sounds considerably richer, fuller and more natural than the Linn reissue I have and that sounds plenty good too. It was worth the risk and is worth every penny of its considerable cost.

 

- Michael Fremer,  Music 10/10, Sound 10/10

"High points abound. While the music gathers momentum from side one to side fourteen, it's possible to begin listening anywhere and be captivated... The stereo recording was done with multiple microphones and without any noise reduction, limiting, compression or equalization. This purity of approach shows in the product, which displays an up-close perspective, evenhanded tonality and wide dynamic range." - Marc Mickelson, www.theaudiobeat.com, 4.5/5 Music, 4.5/5 Sound!!!
