Booker Ervin The Song Book on Hybrid SACD
Prestige Stereo Reissue Series from Analogue Productions!
Cut from the Original Analog Master Tapes by Kevin Gray!
Also Available on 200g LP
Of Booker Ervin's
dates, The Song Book
is extra special because it presents him exclusively in the context of standard songs. However, his aggressiveness, ferocity, and incomparable spaciousness of sound and style, remain undiminished. But it's the compositions themselves that provide familiar guideposts by which to track his explorations, which are both unfailingly daring and full of adventure. In what was his only recorded appearance with Ervin, pianist Tommy Flanagan
colors the proceedings with a customary elegance while frequent recording companions Richard Davis
(bass) and Alan Dawson
(drums) anchor the remainder of the rhythm section in flattering fashion.
Part of the ultimate audiophile Prestige stereo reissue series from Analogue Productions featuring 25 of the most collectible, rarest, most audiophile-sounding Rudy Van Gelder recordings ever made! All titles will be mastered from the original analog master tapes by Kevin Gray and will be issued on both Hybrid SACD and 200g LP.
The 200g LPs will be cut at 33 1/3 speed vinyl at Acoustic Sounds' state-of-the-art pressing plant, Quality Record Pressings, plated by Gary Salstrom. Deep groove label pressings, tip-on jackets on thick cardboard stock.
