Prestige Mono Reissue Series Release Cut from the Original Analog Master Tapes by Kevin Gray & Pressed on 180g Vinyl at Quality Record Pressings
The Miles Davis Quintet of 1955-'57 was a phenomenon that left many jaws dropping. At their exuberant, full-throttle best, the group simply had so much to offer: Coltrane's raw, edgy – at times endless – tenor improvisations. Garland's fiery, left-hand chording. Philly Joe's exciting cymbal work and propulsive rim shots. Miles' subdued, muted trumpet. Chambers' adept and soulful bowed solos. Their 1961 Bob Weinstock-produced release Steamin' is yet another triumphant set. Highlights from the 6-song collection of standards include fiery takes on "Salt Peanuts" and "Well, You Needn't" among others.
Part of the ultimate audiophile Prestige mono reissue series from Analogue Productions. All titles will be mastered from the original analog master tapes by Kevin Gray. The 180g LPs will be cut at 33 1/3 speed vinyl at Acoustic Sounds' state-of-the-art pressing plant, Quality Record Pressings and housed in a deluxe high-gloss tip-on album jacket.
"Analogue Productions has continued to push its own already high bar higher still. Its Quality Record Pressings plant is delivering the best vinyl discs to be found, its jackets and cover reproduction quality have hit new levels, and it continues to have the best in the biz – such as Kevin Gray for this series (25 mono LPs from the Prestige label's exceptional late-50s run) cut lacquers from original analog master tapes. ... Steamin' is the warmest sounding of the lot, with wonderful textures and detail. It also has the most relaxed and easy feeling of these titles, even when the band is smoking on tunes like the bop classic 'Salt Peanuts.'" – Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, December 2015
