I loves me some Sonny Criss. I have these on CD but the brand new vinyl will be very tempting. It'd be cool if Classic would continue with the Prestige years on through the Muse catalog.

I have Japanese vinyl - no information on who engineered these dates but they were recorded in Los Angeles in 1956

I have this 2CD set BN released some years back. Nice music but I'm happy with the CD and don't need an upgrade on LP. I like his Prestige titles a lot more and I'm glad to have some of these recordings as originals on LP.

I wish someone would do a nice mono re-issue of Sonny's Dream. Love that one. :tup:tup:tup

Why the mono fixation? Has the stereo been futzed-up?

I recently got a stereo OJC 'endangered' CD which sounds just fine.

'Dream' is a surprisingly creative date, highly recommended.

(Surely to be doomed to extinction by Concord/Universal.)

Worth checking with Mr Tanno to see if he has a nice Japanese Prestige of this up his sleeve. That's how I got mine.. :)

Good idea Sidewinder.

Regarding mono, it's just a preference. I don't have any reason to think the stereo has anything wrong with it, it's just that I have grown to prefer mono. To me, it is easier to imagine a real band in front of me whebn I close my eyes. There's no artificial stereo separation. I particularly like it for recordings from the 50s and early 60s. These days, most people prefer surround sound and the remastered versions of things that can come out of 5 speakers. I've just never gone that way. For one, I like the soundstage of mono (or simple stereo), and I really don't want 5 speakers in my living room.

After these Criss titles, I could see Classic staying with Imperial and issuing:

LP-9027 - Jazz Of Two Cities - Warne Marsh Quintet

LP-9043 - London Jazz - Dizzy Reece Quintet

LP-9046 - Little Giant Of Jazz - Tubby Hayes Quartet

Nice call wolff! I'd be all over the Reece and Hayes titles myself. Here's hoping...
