Description:Time Label SHM-CD Reissue Series remastered by Bernie Grundman!

A sonic marvel for audiophiles and invaluable treasure for jazz lovers and collectors! In this series of amazing SHM-CD reissue of Time label classic jazz recordings, reissue producer Akira Taguchi (of the XRCD fame) pulled all the stops.

With one exception, all these titles are mixed and/or remastered from either the original 3-track recording tapes or the 2-channel master tapes by the legendary engineer Bernie Grundman, using a very special hybrid (tube and solid state) tape playback system. The digital master was then sent the JVC plant in Yokohama, Japan, to be pressed with finely tuned machinery controlled with a precise rubidium master clock, into the newly-developed SHM-CD with high quality polycarbonate material.

The result is, by far, the best-sounding CD reissues of these recordings. One title (Hootenanny My Way by Terry Gibbs) had never been released on CD before, and four titles include previously unreleased alternate takes, thanks to the unprecedented access to the original tapes.

Before recording this eponymous album for Time, trombonist Bennie Green had performed with Earl Hines, Gene Ammons, and Charlie Ventura, and recorded for Prestige and Blue Note. While it may lack the flash and bang quality, it is an immensely enjoyable, straight-ahead album created tastefully with a relaxed mood.

The warm and soulful trombone sound of Green is complimented well by the brawny tenor sound of Jimmy Forrest, and the talented pianist Sonny Clark provides three original compositions (including his greatest hit "Cool Struttin'") in addition to his great playing. Very nice!

Recorded on March 3 and 4, 1960 in NYC. Original recording produced by Bob Shad. This reissue produced by Akira Taguchi and mastered by Bernie Grundman. SHM-CD is compatible with all CD players.
