This is now my best sounding record. It is reference music not just for how good Vinyl can sound but how Mono can sound. I have played this for people and they are dumbfounded. Mono is King again with this record. The sonics are so luxurious and rich, you just kind of melt into the music.
I've been avoiding sitting in the sweet spot recently, as I find I concentrate too much on imaging. Leaving out soundstage as a criterion I can really compare other attributes, and certain mono recordings come right to the fore in terms of timbre and tonality.
This is at the very top. Almost inconceivable when you think of the age of the recording. The pressing is excellent. A must have for your vinyl collection. So good.. No need to contemplate - just get it.
Yeah it's that good. Buy it. The performances on this record are insanely good and the sonics are worthy of them. Masterpieces By Ellington will surely leave audiophiles both new and old speechless.
