Last Copies !!!! Recording: October 1955 in Paris at Studio Pathé-Magellan. Original LP issue: Barclay 84.017. On October 24th only Jimmy Bond was still with Chet : Peter littman had returned to America, and his seat was now accupied by Nils-Bertil 'Bert' Dahlander, a Swedish drummer who'd accompanied Lars Gullin. At the Keyboard was an almost-unknown pianist named Gérard Gustin who'd just been signed to a contract by Eddie Barclay. Given the context, they were obliged to fall back on standards. Chet knew how to play these better than anyone. He chose eight : 'These Foolish Things', wich stayed in his quartet's répertoire for a while ; five others, wich the trumpeter performs here for the first time - 'There's a Small Hotel, Autumn In New York, Summertime, You Go To My Head, Tenderly - and two - I'll Remember April and Lover Man - that he'd done less than tend ays earlier together with Lars Gullin and Dick Twardzik, whose disappearance was still something Chet refused to accept. Given this state of affairs, the whole session exudes a kind of sadness that's impossible to put down, whatever the choice of tune or tempo. Never before had Chet been as totally moving as he is throughout 'You Go To My Head'.

Recorded between Tuesday October 25th, 1955 and February 10th, 1956, Pathé-Magellan Studio, Paris. Original LP issue: Barclay 84 042. This session was recorded at Studio Pathé-Magellan in Paris, between Tuesday October, 25th, 1955 and February, 10th, 1956. This record is the third and last record for the Barclay label. In answer to an offer from Nicole Barclay, Chet Baker arrived in Paris early in September 1955. On the 22nd - or maybe the 23rd - he signed a contract to make seven records... (The figure was later erased and replaced by «three», which turned out to be correct). Released after the trumpeter's return to the USA, this last volume was construed as rather a poor relation opposite the others in the trilogy, all the more so because, hurriedly drafted, the sleeve-notes did little to render unto Caesar the things which were Caesar's. Unlike the earlier opuses, this one was in no way a concept-album: it contented itself with a simple overview of Chet's Parisian associations, depending on where his fancies took him in the course of his stay. When Chet entered the Studio Pathé-Magellan on October 25th, only one member of his original accompanying trio was still present: pianist Dick Twardzik had died of an overdose, and drummer Peter Littman had returned home after selling his kit for whatever it would fetch. Jimmy Bond and his contrabass, however, were both still there, and in the ensuing octet session Chet's melodic gifts were magnified by (remarkable) scores penned by Pierre Michelot - 'Chet', 'Dinah' - and Christian Chevalier 'Vline'. The three pièces were mini-concertos, and the trumpeter loved them so much that he decided to do them again back in America... but not so successfully. On November 28th Chet went back into the same studio, this time with Raymond Fol on piano, Benoît Quersin on bass and Jean-Louis Viale on drums. They recorded two improvisations: the first was based on a 1932 standard from Howard Dietz and Arthur Schwartz, 'Alone Together', while the second began with 'Exitu's, a composition written by one of Baker's friends, Phil Urso. The performances are among the most beautiful that Chet produced during this period, along with 'Chekeetah' - or 'Chik-Etah' - and 'How about You?' which put the seal on a partnership that had first come to light at the Club Saint-Germain, temporarily rechristened for the occasion: «Every Saturday and Sunday afternoon from 16h30 to 19h30 at the Barclay's Club - 13 rue Saint-Benoît, Paris - Bobby Jaspar Quintet with American trumpeter Chet Baker,» read the sign. The format was stylistically ideal, leading Chet to abandon the quartet format he'd preferred up until then. To respect his next bookings, Chet had to get a stable band together, and as his pianist he chose Raph Schecroun - later known as Errol Parker - who was himself replaced by Francy Boland. Alongside him were bassist Eddie de Haas, who'd previously been with Martial Solal and Henri Renaud (the latter, in the adventure, also lost his regular drummer, Charles Saudrais, who was just seventeen. According to Jean-Louis Chautemps, "When Bobby Jaspar couldn't do it or just wanted too much, they looked for someone cheaper; and that was me. There wasn't really an audition: we were in the Tabou, I played with Chet, he said OK and, two days later, we found ourselves in Reykjavik, Iceland." The tune 'Tasty Puddin'g written by Al Cohn and 'Anticipated Blues', one of the rare pieces Chet claimed to have written, were in the repertoire played by this last Baker-led formation on the Old Continent. Both pieces, once again, moved Pierre Michelot to pass judgement: «With ordinary means, Chet managed to play phrases of extraordinary beauty with simplicity and clarity ».

Recorded in Paris, December 4, 1957. Original LP 10-inch issue: Fontana 660.213 MR. In 1957, Miles Davis is in Paris for an engagement at the 'Club Saint-Germain' and a wonderful concert at the Olympia Theatre. Once in Paris, Miles came into contact with many members of the modern existentialist cultural environment in the neighborhood of Saint-Germain-des-Près. These include the director Louis Malle who had just finished his first movie : 'Ascenseur Pour L'échafaud'. Jean-Paul Rappeneau, a Jazz fan and Louis Malle's assistant at the time, suggested asking Miles Davis to create the film's soundtrack. A private sceening has been organized. On December 4 1957, Miles Davis brought three French Jazzmen - Barney Wilen on tenor saxophone, René Urtreger on piano, Pierre Michelot on bass and his american compatriot Kenny Clarke on drums - to the recording studio 'Le Poste Parisien' without having them prepare anything. Miles Davis only gave the musicians a few rudimentary harmonic sequences he had assembled in his hotel room. This recordings was made at night in a most informal atmosphere. The soundtrack was not released on it's own in the USA but ten songs from this soundtrack was released as one side of the album Jazz Track which received a 1960 Grammy nomination for Best Jazz Performance, Solo or Small Group. 'Ascenseur Pour L'échafaud' has become a great achievement of artistic excellence.

Recorded in Paris, December 4 & 7, 1956. Original LP issue: Versailles MEDX 12005. It was in Paris that John Lewis co-led this 1956 date with Sacha Distel, a French guitarist who never became well known in the U.S. but commanded a lot of respect in French jazz circles. The same can be said about the other French players employed on 'Afternoon in Paris' - neither tenor saxophonist Barney Wilen nor bassist Pierre Michelot were huge names in the U.S., although both were well known in European jazz circles. With Lewis on piano, Distel on guitar, Wilen on tenor, Michelot or Percy Heath on bass, and Kenny Clarke or Connie Kay on drums, the part-American, part-French group of improvisers provides an above-average bop album that ranges from "Willow Weep for Me," "All The Things You Are," and "I Cover the Waterfront" to Milt Jackson's "Bags' Groove" and Lewis' title song. The big-toned Wilen was only 19 when 'Afternoon in Paris' was recorded, but as his lyrical yet hard-swinging solos demonstrate, he matured quickly as a sax man.

Blue Note (Tone Poet) Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from the original master tape Plated and pressed at RTI The Blue Note Tone Poet Series was born out of Blue Note President Don Was' admiration for the exceptional audiophile Blue Note LP reissues presented by Music Matters. Was brought Joe Harley (from Music Matters), a.k.a. the "Tone Poet," on board to curate and supervise a series of reissues from the Blue Note family of labels. The scorching sax of Stanley Turrentine with the funkiness of Shirley Scott at the organ and the addition of the master guitarist Kenny Burrell is a combination that has no equal. "This is a typically excellent recording from the husband-wife team of tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine and organist Shirley Scott. With assistance from guitarist Kenny Burrell, bassist Bob Cranshaw, and drummer Otis Finch, Turrentine (who always had the skill of playing melodies fairly straight but with his own brand of soul) and Scott dig into "Love Letters," Lloyd Price's "Trouble," "Something Happens to Me," a couple of basic originals, and "Goin' Home." The Turrentine-Scott team never made an unworthy disc; all are easily recommended, including this one." - AllMusic 1. Trouble (No. 2) 2. Love Letters 3. The Hustler 4. Ladyfingers 5.

Dead-quiet 45 RPM 5LP set reduces distortion, improves cartridge tracking! Pressed at Quality Record Pressings; superb music and detailed, deluxe packaging Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analog tape Packaged in a custom-designed slipcase with integrated 22-page lavishly illustrated book Please note: Side 10 of this release is a repeat of side 1 In the hearts of thousands, No. 1 on the Top RCA list. While the bulk of Ernest Ansermet's recordings were made with L'Orchestre de la Susise Romande, there were a few with the Paris Conservatoire Orchestra and the very occasional foray into recordings with London orchestras, one of these being with the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, in 1959. Analogue Productions is proud and excited to be bringing back such a classic. Not just for the music, which is superb, but also for the detailed packaging, which in this case takes the form of a 22-page lavishly illustrated book that's integrated into the tip-on gatefold jacket for two of the LPs in this new 5LP 45 RPM box set edition. A word about 45 RPM: The dead-quiet LPs, with the music spread over nine sides of vinyl (the 10th side repeats side 1), reduces distortion and high frequency loss as the wider-spaced grooves let your stereo cartridge track more accurately. But it's more than just the vinyl that makes this release so special. If you're new to ballet, this pictorial history will introduce you to some of its most famous productions - old favorites such as The Nutcracker, Swan Lake and The Sleeping Beauty, for example - but also less familiar tales such as Carnaval, Les Sylphides and Coppélia. You'll also make the aquaintance of famous ballerinas of the Royal company, such as Margot Fonteyn, Nadia Nerina and Beryl Grey. as well as choreographers such as Jules Perrot and male dancers Alexis Rassine and Michael Somes. Musically you can't get better than the 200-gram dead-silent platters pressed by Quality Record Pressings, makers of the world's finest-sounding LPs. Of course the best vinyl reflects the best mastering, and that's accomplished here by Bernie Grundman working from the original analog tape. Stoughton Printing expertly handled the intricate gatefold tip-on package. Audiophilia Online Magazine wrote: "This is the stuff of which dreams are made. The Royal Ballet Gala is one of the finest RCAs recorded in London's Kingsway Hall. The chunks of great ballet music are well served by orchestra, conductor and engineer. Performances are executed to a very high standard - the Royal Opera House Orchestra, both then and now, rank as one of the finest of opera orchestras. "Conductor Ansermet keeps the pace moving, giving the listener the impression of a dance event rather than a dramatic concert hall reading. With the exception of some of the Tchaikovsky scenes, the music is light and remains so under Ansermet's gentle touch. Each ballet is given full attention by the players, something not always attained at Covent Garden during long ballet nights! The threat of eternity does have it's merits. The recorded sound is simply amazing! Lustrous is one word that comes to mind, accurate is another. "Tonally, Messrs. Williamson and Wilkinson have used their considerable talents to capture the orchestra superbly. Woodwind and strings glow and resonate, transporting this listener to a time when simpler recording was better. Brass ring out thrillingly and percussion effects are very musical. Be it a bang, swish, rattle, crack or snap, each percussionist is situated perfectly within the beautiful Kingsway soundstage. Even the difficult-to-record sound of the celeste is captured in it's purely mechanical form. It's delicate sound is heard to great effect during the Nutcracker - originating stage left, the sound decays across the stage of Kingsway with sparkling beauty. Wonderful."

Deutsche Grammophon Classical Violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter and cellist Yo-Yo Ma, who recently released a ravishing new recording of Beethoven's Triple Concerto with Daniel Barenboim and West Eastern Divan Orchestra, originally recorded the masterpiece 40 years earlier, then with pianist Mark Zeltser and Berliner Philharmoniker under the baton of Herbert von Karajan. This exciting earlier version is now available again on vinyl, with the invitation to compare the artists' interpretations then and now, in the Beethoven anniversary year. This is Karajan's 2nd recording of the Beethoven Triple. The first was made with David Oistrakh, Mstislav Rostropovich and Stanislav Richter. This 1980 recording was made when Mutter, Yo-Yo Ma and Mark Zeltser were the younger generation artists then under the guidance of the great conductor. 1.Beethoven : Triple Concerto in C Major, Op. 56 : I.

Joan Armatrading's 180-gram LP is 100% analog mastered by Kevin Gray at CoHEARent Audio from the best source available - phenomenal-sounding 1/2" safety copy of the original stereo master tape. The remastering is amazing! Thanks to Glyn Johns' recording and production work, Joan's vocals and guitar playing have never sounded so rich, resonant and dynamic. This is an audiophile demo disc all the way, with depth, realism and a breathing dimensionality. The album art is beautifully restored by IR's Tom Vadakan and housed in a film-laminated, Old Style "Tip-On" single-gatefold jacket printed by Stoughton Printing.

Mastered directly from the original 35mm magnetic film using an "all tube" cutting system! Pressed on Classic's 200-gram Super Vinyl Flat Profile at Quality Record Pressings Sets come with Stoughton Printing tip-on old style original jacket artwork and Everest Records-branded jacket Two LPs are packaged in a protective clear sleeve Among Classic Records' highlight accomplishments - before the label sold in 2010 to Acoustic Sounds - was unlocking the audio majesty of the Everest 35mm magnetic film recordings on a groundbreaking reissue series. Now, return with us, as Classic Records by Analogue Productions returns this vintage audiophile collection to its rightful glory. Everest LPs through the early 1960s were recorded on 3-channel 35mm magnetic film recording equipment. 35mm magnetic film yielded greater fidelity and less noise than standard 1/4" recording tape. The Westrex Corporation built special equipment to Everest's specifications to accomplish these advantages. Fast forward to today: Classic Records by Analogue Productions is resurrecting this collection through an initial 10-title reissue series. Bernie Grundman cut the Classic Records reissues at both 33 and 45 RPM - the 45 RPM versions have never been reissued! • Quality Record Pressings 200-gram flat profile LPs - These records are pressed with a flat-edge, no groove-guard flat profile, like the originals. The flat edge refers to the absence of a raised, beaded lip on the outer edge of the record, providing a flat playing surface - and no incline - on your turntable. Quality Record Pressings' quality is legendary and these flat profile 200-gram platters will look and sound exceptional! Each 2LP set comes with a Stoughton Printing tip-on original jacket and an Everest Records branded jacket showing photos of each reissue title. The two LPs are packaged in a protective clear sleeve. Le Sacre du Printemps itself was a work that famed conductor Leonard Bernstein characterized as "only one of your everyday volcanic masterpieces...a miraculous new creation of such originality and power that still today it shocks and overwhelms us." More than a century ago Le Sacre du Printemps shocked and overwhelmed its first audience, provoking a now legendary riot at its Paris premiere whose notoriety and magnitude was unprecedented in the history of classical music. The opening night audience included, among the ladies, gentlemen and diplomats, such luminaries as Pablo Picasso, Marcel Proust, Gertrude Stein, Maurice Ravel and Claude Debussy.
Label: Analogue Productions (Blue Note) Analogue Productions' Blue Note and Nat "King" Cole Reissues WIN A Positive Feedback 2010 Brutus Award! "...if you haven't picked up every one of the Blue Note and Nat King Cole reissues from Chad Kassem and company at Acoustic Sounds, you're really missing out!" - David W. Robinson, Positive Feedback , Issue 52 "...As much as I'd love to relay all kinds of anecdotes about the challenges Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray encounter during the mastering sessions, I witness none. These boys know the sound of the facility and the Van Gelder masters like the backs of their hands...Back home a month later, I unpack some test pressings Chad Kassem has sent me...I hear the most realistic-sounding drums ever reproduced by my system. It's as though I'm sitting at the point of creation, experiencing the same high that brought such gifted musicians together as one. Steve Hoffman, Kevin Gray, Chad Kassem, and Don MacInnis have done Rudy Van Gelder and his Blue Note artists proud." - Jason Victor Serinus, Stereophile , April 2008 J.J. Johnson shared the front line with his tenor master for an exceptional session that features a unique reworking of "Poor Butterfly" and a great original "Why Don't I." Horace Silver is the pianist, but Thelonious Monk replaces him on "Reflections" and both pianists alternate throughout a stunning version of "Misterioso." Recorded in 1957.Art Blakey, drums Paul Chambers, bass J.J. Johnson, trombone Thelonious Monk, piano Sonny Rollins, sax (tenor) Horace Silver, piano
Label: Analogue Productions Now at 33 1/3 RPM! Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the original 1964 Chess analog masters 200-gram vinyl pressed at Quality Record Pressings Gatefold jacket with extra photos! Follow along as writer/professor Wayne Goins explores the creation of Folk Singer , and leads a visual tour of the former Chess Records studios, here. There are a handful of landmark albums in any genre. In the blues, one of them is Muddy Waters' Folk Singer. It's been an audiophile staple for years. Originally released in 1964, Folk Singer was the only acoustic album Waters ever recorded, thus becoming the first and perhaps best blues concept album ever. Muddy of course started out playing acoustic blues in the Delta, and he's clearly very comfortable in this return to his roots, which was designed to appeal to the mid-1960s surge of interest in folk music. Muddy's supporting cast includes a very young Buddy Guy on guitar, Willie Dixon at the upright bass and Clifton James on drums. This recording has enormous presence with ample room for Muddy's booming voice to resonate. Praise for our 45 RPM edition of Folk Singer : "The Quality Record Pressing is drop-dead quiet-as silent as the best Japanese pressings from the late 1970s-and the amount of inner detail released is simply astonishing...the sound is sweet, liquid and free of harshness and edge. The dynamics are mind-boggling. When Muddy takes it up ten notches to emphasize a point it's positively explosive in a way the 33 1/3 version only suggests." Music = 9/10, Sound = 10/10! - Michael Fremer, musicangle.com. "How about a 45 RPM set from Analogue Productions' recently launched Quality Record Pressings Facility, mastered by Bernie Grundman, in a beautiful gatefold jacket with extra sessions shots? It's been ages since I've heard LP surfaces this quiet - as in dead quiet. The expense and effort that Chad Kassem and company put into this venture are immediately obvious. ... Making music together bring this recording to life as never before. It's by far the best sounding and most engaging version yet... analog lovers will be in hog heaven." - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound , May/June, Issue 223 Side 1 1. My Home Is In The Delta 2.
