Finally sat down (with a pint) and put on the Tone Poet of Money Jungle. Having never heard this one before, and having read countless poor reviews of the sound quality, I honestly was pleased with the sound- I suppose it helps going in with low expectations. Yes, it does sound like a jazz record played on AM radio, but the album itself- as is always the disclaimer for the panning reviews- is tremendous. Man, (no surprise here) Mingus is just killing it, especially on the first track. And as was discussed elsewhere, its really cool hearing Sir Duke slip out into the ether with a more experimental approach.
