Tina Brooks True Blue On Limited Edition 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! These LPs only get pressed once; don’t miss out or you’ll be paying a lot more on eBay.
With a strong, smooth tone and an amazing flow of fresh ideas every time he soloed, tenor saxophonist Tina Brooks should have been a major jazz artist, but his legacy is confined to a series of dates that he did for Blue Note as a sideman and leader. True Blue is the only album under his own name to come out in his lifetime. He and Freddie Hubbard had recorded Hubbard’s Open Sesame a week earlier. True Blue also features Hubbard on trumpet along with Duke Jordan on piano, Sam Jones on bass and Art Taylor on drums. Brooks made the best out of this opportunity here as it is a phenomenal set containing five of his originals. Now available on Limited Edition 180g Japanese Import LP!
