Six eye.

Nice! I picked up a mint  2-eye for $3 in the bargain bin at the old Academy Records in NYC around 2001, then a six-eye, also on the cheap. These could be had for a song, but not any more. 
Enjoy!

Actually, in these parts you can still get lucky at Half Priced Books. This was $7 about a year ago.

What a gem ! Never issued during Rosolino’s lifetime - great band with Harold Land and Victor Feldman, Axelrod production.

Indeed! Here some more  (including yours) not often seen from my stock beside the 2 from the series "Kenton presents..."

Holiday six-eye, or two-eye? 

Is there an actual reason to care other than some obscure obsessive "record collector" reason? Is one heavier, higher quality vinyl? Is it like RVG wax vs Liberty-era reissue?  I've bought Liberty-era and been perfectly content with the result but then again I don't have a special rig and don't actually "listen" to vinyl, I transfer to digital, clean up egregious pops and clicks, and enjoy on CDR.

In my experience, the six-eye Columbias are uniformly well-pressed, with high quality control, on top notch vinyl. I reflects across the genres, not just jazz, but classical as well. If I see a clean Columbia Masterworks stereo six-eye classical album, I buy it, because I know it'll be a delight to listen to. So, yes, it's not just the 'collector' instinct, but it also plays part, of course. I like the sturdy covers, well-printed artwork that was designed by talented professionals. So yeah, much like the Blue Notes, its; the whole package.

Agreed, six eye pressings sound uniformly great, though for me the real qualify drop off is post-two eye pressings.

Bill-Evans-Live-at-Ronnie-Scotts-Cover.j

First spin of the new Resonance, copy #795. Considering the sound source, quite acceptable sonics, better than expected in fact and what seems to be an excellent pressing. Great music by this trio and the live atmosphere at Scott’s is well captured (:tup). Recommended !

The trio were at Scott’s for a month during that stint and the cohesion and ease with the venue shows in the performance.

Pete Magadini/Don Menza/Dave Young/George Duke - Polyrhythm

Edit: This is my first spin, and it's pretty great. They do a version of Menza's "Samba De Rollins", which I knew from his album on Catalyst.

Just finished: Tor Lundvall's "Yule", only recently released on vinyl. I was able to get a copy of the "peppermint" vinyl.

Now playing: Stanley Turrentine - That's Where It's At (Blue Note/Tone Poet). I don't know why, but as much of a Turrentine fan as I am, this date never really resonated with me. Maybe it's McCann's piano work?
