That's curious, I just had the opposite impression the other day. I listened to both mono and stereo versions of "Bud Shank & the Sax Section" and found the mono version hotter and more in-your-face. It was easier to hear the voicings of the sax section in stereo - which was a plus on this particular album - but I also found the stereo version softer and overall more pleasant-sounding.

But on this topic, I've found that some Pacific Jazz albums do sound shrill, while others are more balanced. Clare Fischer was usually awarded with good sound.

I'm sure there are exceptions to what I've encountered - especially if different mastering was used between pressings.  But in my experience, a lot of mid- to late-60s US stereo albums on UA, Pacific Jazz, and a few other labels sound harsh to my ears, shrill highs and not much lower end.  Their mono counterparts - when I have found them - tend to have a fuller sound with more rounded highs and more bass.

Just finished the Herbie Applause release.  it sounds fine.  If you can find it a for low dough, grab it.

NP: Eddie Bert - Modern Moods (Jazztone Society Classic, mono)

You have to crank the bass on this one.  Once you do, it sounds great.

Agreed. :tup

Yeah, I didn't know what to make of this album before I played it.  It appeared to be stylistically all over the map, and in certain ways it is, but every track is enjoyable on some level or other.  I really loved track three and also the final track, which is more or less a straight-ahead jazz tune.  The opening track, with flute, is really nice also.

Dizzy Gillespie - Cornucopia (Solid State)

Diz turns on and tunes in to the moods and vibrations of today!  With a little help from Don Sebesky.

Keep an eye open for My Way, also on Solid State. It has all of the bad points of that one and none of the good!
