I consider myself as an audiophile and while I appreciate the music, I can’t enjoy the sound quality especially a lot of 50’s and earlier. Many RVG recordings are actually good but still not the same quality as after 70s. I find some of RVG recordings you don’t hear other instruments well especially part of drums. Just does not sound full. Nevertheless I have a lot of respect for RVG as we are still able to enjoy many of the jazz legends because of him.
