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

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

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:

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!

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

These cuts were originally released as In Pursuit of Blackness -- and three-fourths of Joe Henderson in Japan.

Erwin Schmidt - Dorothy's Valentine: I bought this after Georghe posted about the death of Walther Großrubatscher, the drummer on the date.  Based on this excellent album, he deserved to be more widely known.  Fans here of piano trios should check it out.

Milestone was a fantastic label ! They really did something for acoustic musicians when others didn´t record them. And all those albums they made, they sounded so modern, so hip and quick.

I think Joe Henderson did some of his best work for Milestone, he never sounded better. Even the more overproduced studio thing "Canyon Lady" doesn´t sound like cheap studio crap, it is a fine album and captures much of Henderson´s virtuosity.

All those Milestone Artists made some of their very best stuff during those years, Rollins, McCoy Tyner, Ron Carter, and of course Joe Henderson.

I think they also were scheduled for festivals as part of the "Milestone Family", because how otherwise I could explain that in 1979 in Velden we had so many "Milestone Artists" (Rollins, Ron Carter, Joe Henderson, they all were scheduled)........

Yeah, I agree that Henderson made some superb records for Milestone. Sonny and McCoy too -- and many others besides. :tup

they are wonderful ! When I was younger I had difficulties to tell from the record who of them is soloing, but later I learned to figure out how Zoot Sims phrases and how Al Cohn. It´s fascinating how long there collaboration went on. First I got aware of them on "Miles and Horns", than on that "Tenor Conclave". Too bad I never caught Zoot Sims "live" but I saw Al Cohn once with Woody Herman in a rare "All Star Small Group", a wonderful experience.....
