And ... it’s Bill Evans, so what’s not to like! But, in all seriousness, you are LITERALLY transported back in time to May 1963 and you are there at the club. The soundstage, separation, clarity, and vividness of the instruments are phenomenal. I wish I knew what microphones and recorder were used. It sounds like it was recorded yesterday, not back in 1963. However, it gets better: I played this for a good friend of mine (who is in his early 80’s). He’s a real Bill Evans aficionado. It turns out HE WAS AT THE GIG at the Manne-Hole on May 14, 1963, when some of this was originally recorded. It brought tears to his eyes as he listened! Classic Bill Evans. Just buy it. You won’t be sorry!
Sound quality are magnificent and love it so much.
Anyone who is a fan of Bill Evans, or jazz in general, should give this a try. The sound is top notch and performance always great Evans. You will feel like you’re back in time with the lounge club atmosphere that this recording gives.
Excellent 3D sounding live recording. Each instrument solidly occupies its space in the stereo spectrum. Great depth and space between and around the instruments. I like all Bill Evans recordings, so commenting on the quality of the music is unnecessary.
It is like a perfectly preserved reel-to-reel for all time. Wow. Could not imagine audio like this. These guys’ DSD masters rule. (Always try reversing phase, seems to make a huge difference sometimes. I generally find DSD plays best with reversed phase, or the other way around—either way, the opposite of PCM. That's on two different sets of DACs and amplification.)
