    I cannot even imagine having Art Tatum in my living room playing for my friends and I, but that is what this recordings are.

    Art Pepper meets The Rhythm Section (Contemporary/OJC Remasters) CD
    All tracks recorded 1957 - The 24-bit remaster by Joe Tarantino was issued in 2010 and includes the bonus track - 'The Man I Love'.

    *Can't figure the need to remaster (again) what was a splendid OJC remaster in the first instance. This 'Remasters' remaster sounds slightly louder than the original OJC CD - and I can't imagine anyone wanting it that way if given a choice.

    with Joe Sample (piano), Jay Anderson (bass), Lenny Castro (percussion), Dean Parks (guitar), Charles Lloyd (tenor sax), Ralph Penland (drums)

    Recorded/released 1996. Mastered by Doug Sax. An excellent album and easily the most impressive Joe Sample I have heard.

    ASHES TO ASHES - JOE SAMPLE (Warner Bros.) CD / 24-bit remaster

    Recorded 1990. CD mastered by Doug Sax. CD issued as part of the Japanese Warner series Fusion Best Collection 1000 series. Smooth fusion with some nice touches here and ther and even though it is almost muzak at times it is still worth a listen.

    I guess they have pretty well disappeared. I have 73 XRCD titles. Most are from the mid-90's. The "newest" titles I have are from 2010-2013 but nothing since.

    The ones mastered by Alan Yoshida sound great, others that were mastered in Japan by Japanese engineers not so much - too "pumped up", harsh and sometimes loud. All in my opinion, of course :) The Audio Wave/Blue Note XRCDs, done by Mr Yoshida, are excellent.

    This title has so many different versions and opinions on which one is the best sounding it is mind boggling.
