180g LP Remastered From Original Master Tapes!
Pressed at Pallas and Mastered by Bernie Grundman!
The rare opportunity to hear Milt Jackson step out from behind his familiar vibraphones to play guitar and piano, and partner Ray Charles, in addition to manning the 88s, blow on the alto saxophone for two numbers, should not be missed. Particularly on this transparent LP version, which portrays the 1957 collaboration within a huge, naturally vibrant soundstage.
Mastered from the original master tapes, ORG Music's edition lays bare the relaxed, bluesy, often-boppish jazz on display from these two giants. With stellar support, the two headliners treat this affair as a backroom woodshedding session, replete with all the passion, freedom, and fun such get-togethers contain.
