Positive Feedback
When it comes to highly sought-after original Blue Note LPs, stereo or mono has always been something a vexed question. Among the hard-core collectors—the individuals who pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars for rare first pressings—it is the mono editions that generally command the highest prices. […]

Cannonball is sort of playing to Miles, I believe, because he’s playing sort of within Miles’ context of a style. He’s not going to throw a whole lot of notes up against Miles, who is going to play very few notes. […]

I did feel however that the bass and drums could have been altered slightly more on the different tracks, as it began to feel slightly repetitive towards the end of the album. It would also be even better if more styles were covered, but given the nature of this album that is a lot to ask for. […]
