This album sounds spectacular as is the case for most HDTT. The combination of best audio and amazing performances from two of the greats is a treasure.
This is the most dimensional version of the album I’ve heard (24/352). The upright bass (best articulation I’ve heard so far of this album) is set in its own space to the left in the soundstage, but the reverb fills the entire stage. Armstrong’s voice isn’t a bright as some other releases and has a somewhat warm presence. This will be a good addition to your collection.
I didn't know this record but I was immediately hooked. Of course I compared it to the tidal version of this album but there's simply no competition. This must be one the best sounding tape transfers available.
This is my favorite recording from highfidelitytransfers, out of the 10 - 15 yet. What a joy to be able to get so close to Pops and Ellington performing at his high level. It just feels alive. And a very nice, balanced choice of songs. I don't think I will ever get tired listening to this.
