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.

Award-Winning Drummer is a strong record by the legendary drummer Max Roach. It features, in addition to the brillitant and varied drumming of the leader, young and talented horn players Booker Little (trumpet) and Goerge Coleman (tenor sax). The addition of Ray Draper, who plays the tuba, adds an interesting tonal color to the proceedings.

This great-sounding SHM-CD reissue has no less than six alternate takes, and five of them (tracks 8-10, 12 and 13) had never been released before.

Recorded on January 6, 1959 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.
