    I heard a few snippets of this last night and loved it (all great but the track 'Jakey' sounded amazing).

    Anybody here suggest the best pressing to go for....What's the 2016 US Blue Note LP like?

    I've always loved the sound of the B3 but outside of a few compilations of Jimmy Smith/McGriff and Richard Holmes I've got nothing - Any suggestions to whet my appetite??

    I have two copies on LP, a 90s Connoisseur and an EU 75th Anniversary. It’s a well recorded album, I’ve never heard it sound poor in any format, but the Conn, which may be AAA, sounds fuller, richer and more dynamic than the 75th. BTW, if 75th Anniversary is all you can obtain, I would recommend an EU copy over US, as most of the series in the EU were pressed by Optimal.

    Thank You Graham...I will do a bit of searching I think.

    BTW I agree about the production, it sounded wonderful on Spotify Premium.
