Salt And Pepper by Sonny Stitt And Paul Gonsalves
One of the underrated gems of the 1960s, Salt And Pepper is an exciting matchup of tenors Sonny Stitt and Paul Gonsalves. It is very much a jam session set, with Salt And Pepper being a heated medium-tempo blues and the two competitive tenors stretching out on S'posin' and a lengthy Perdido. The most memorable selection from the date is the one on which Stitt switches to alto, Stardust. His beautiful playing behind Gonsalves' warm melody statement raises the session to the classic level. Also included on this consistently exciting release is a Sonny Stitt quartet set. Although Stitt (doubling on alto and tenor) recorded scores of quartet sessions, he sounds particularly inspired here, especially on such offbeat material as Estralita, the Dixieland standard Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone and My Mother's Eyes. Highly recommended to bebop and straight-ahead jazz fans.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
