The single review of this on Amazon says there's lots of distortion, and the sound sucks. Curious as to whether you agree??

An Amazon review of this package says "Very poor reproduction. Sound distorted off key- waste of money- don't buy."  What do you say?

I have the same ! Really a great collection. It´s interesting how Diz sounded on the earlier big band stuff and on the 1949 stuff he tried to reach a bigger audience I think, with more vocals and funny tunes like "Hey Pete, let´s eat more meat".

And I think it was the first time, I heard that mistery "Metronome All Stars" . Until then I had seen only a picture of that all star summit.

On the same tour local jazz presenter Graham Brook is pitting him against Gilad Atzmon. That should be some gig, providing of course that that those out to stop Gilad's appearances don't get there first!

This is not the best sound we have heard but to my ears, the sound in reasonable. The music wins and I cant say that the reproduction is poor.

Among other things, I'm really enjoying Dewey Redman's interplay with Billy Higgins on this one.

For my money, this is Jarrett's best solo-piano record:

Gilad’s ‘Orient House Ensemble’ is on the bill on the Saturday night. Hope to catch them.
