Default A bit off topic but...

Bill, would you mind sharing some info about your Saxophone Colossus disk? I'm listening to the track "Moritat" on mine and the saxophone sounds very distorted. I got my copy in the dark ages of CD, around 1985. My disk has the liner notes in Japanese (like many of the early jazz CDs), and says "Manufactured by Victor Musical Industries, Inc., Tokyo, Japan 1985". It also says "Prestige VDJ-1501". Any identifying info on yours that might shed some light on when the analog was converted to digital (the later the better I assume)?

Thanks.

If you're familiar with another live Coltrane recording from a similar time frame, Live At Birdland, you'll know that the sound quality of that disk is rather poor. I'm happy to say the sound quality of the 1961 Village Vanguard recordings is way, way better. I honestly don't know why they didn't release some of these tracks long ago. So far, I've only gotten through the first CD (this is a 4 CD set) and I've found that the (A) version of Impressions on the first disk is the best I've heard. Likewise, the (A) version of Naima is the best version of this song I've heard, ever. I've been an avid Coltrane fan for over 30 years, and quite frankly, after hearing some of his stuff literally hundreds of times over the years, it loses its magic. But these new tracks are a breath of fresh air, bringing the magic back again.

BTW, Dolphy plays bass clarinet and alto on many of the tracks, and sometimes Reggie Workman plays bass instead of the usual Jimmy Garrison. Roy Haynes also plays drums on some of the tracks in place of the usual Elvin Jones.
