Johnny Griffin The Congregation on 180g Japanese Import LP!
This series of Blue Note titles are made for music lovers and collectors who are not happy with the current trend in mastering at 45-RPM. Many of our customers have complained about flipping sides every eight to ten minutes. These Japanese pressings are made for these jazz lovers, at the standard speed of 33 1/3.
For many decades, Japanese pressings have been sought out by audiophiles and serious collectors the world over. Their mastering technology is first-class and the pressing quality is the world’s best. Japanese pressing plants are virtual “Clean Rooms”, unlike pressing plants here in the USA. LPs from Japan have always been the quietest ever manufactured!
Johnny Griffin is one of the fastest, sharpest tenor saxophonists to emerge in the fertile 1950s. His third and final Blue Note recording is one of a handful that sported a cover illustration by the then struggling artist Andy Warhol. The quartet date with Sonny Clark and Paul Chambers is a relaxed, mature affair that ranges from the gospel-flavored title tune to a beautiful "I'm Glad There Is You" and an up-tempo "It's You or No One." Added to the original album is "I Remember You," a bonus track from the session.
