Art BlakeyArt Blakey's Jazz Messengers with Thelonious Monk (Atlantic Records / Warner Music)

Has anyone heard the recent SHM-CD release?  I have the 2002 "Atlantic Masters" issued by Warner.  I think it's based on the 1999 Rhino release.  I don't like the sound of the horns - they sound harsh to me.  I don't know if it's due to the original recording, the mastering or maybe my system.

If it's a Warner CD that sounds harsh, then it must be the mastering. The Japanese mono CD from a few years back was incredibly bright (and loud). 

Are you familiar with the 2 CDs worth of alternate and incomplete takes that are available in the trading community?
