AAA 100% Analogue  - Limited Edition -  Audiophile Mastering - Pressed  at RTI

The sound is superb: airy, dynamic, tonally true, billowing with overtones. When the musicians play in unison, they remain distinct, with no excessive shmooshing.—Sound 5/5 red Kaplan Stereophile

The Kicker was vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson's first session (1963) via Blue Note but wasn't released until 1999. Instead, Dialogue was released as his debut album two years later. Now available on vinyl for the first time! A sequel to Grant Green's masterpiece Idle Moments, with the same artists: Green, Joe Henderson (tenor sax), Duke Pearson (piano), Bob Cranshaw (bass), Al Harewood (drums). Blue Note Tone Poet Series features all-analog, remastered 180-gram vinyl; deluxe gatefold package.

Tone Poet Audiophile Vinyl Reissue Series: "Tone Poet" Joe Harley--co-founder and co-producer of the acclaimed Music Matters audiophile vinyl series--is the producer of this new series of all-analog, mastered-from-the-original-master-tape 180g audiophile vinyl reissues in deluxe gatefold packaging. Mastering was done by Kevin Gray (Cohearent Audio) and vinyl was manufactured at Record Technology Incorporated (RTI). The titles were handpicked by Harley and cover lesser-known Blue Note classics, modern era standouts, and albums from other labels under the Blue Note catalog.

Extreme attention to detail has been paid to getting these right in every conceivable way, from the jacket graphics and printing quality to superior LP mastering (direct from the master tapes) by Kevin Gray to superb 180 gm audiophile LP pressings by Record Technology Inc. Every aspect of these Blue Note/Tone Poet releases is done to the highest possible standard. It means that you will never find a superior version. This is IT.

The so-called Tone Poet (Joe Harley) is confident that his audiophile reissues will allow 21st-century listeners to hear what the musicians heard as the master tape was played back on the studio monitors in Rudy Van Gelder's studio 50 or 60 years ago. He believes that, in terms of quality, Blue Note albums have never sounded or looked better. "Every aspect of these Blue Note releases is done to the highest possible standard," he says. "It means that you will never find a superior version."
