180 Gram Audiophile Virgin Vinyl 45RPM LP - 2 LPs Sealed
Stanley Turrentine Up At Minton's Volume 2 Vinyl Record | Vinyl LP AlbumStanley Turrentine created his own world of music. Every note that the instantly recognizable tenor giant played dripped with soul. No matter what setting he appeared in, from jazz organ combos to hard bop sextets, to funk and R&B ensembles to big bands, Mr. T. could be picked out within a couple of notes. Many of the sounds that emitted from his saxophone only could have come from Turrentine for it contained his soul. He was with Blue Note throughout the 1960s, recording two albums at Minton's Playhouse in 1961 when he was 26. While Vol. 1 is excellent, it serves as a warm up for the second album, which is a perfect example of Stanley Turrentine at his most inventive, melodic and soulful. Joined by Grant Green and the Horace Parlan Trio, Turrentine makes three standards ("Come Rain Or Come Shine," "Love For Sale" and "Summertime") sound fresh and new despite how often others have recorded them. The tunes sound different due to Turrentine's tone, placement of notes and his lyrical and emotional approach. There was only one Stanley Turrentine and he played songs his own way.

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.
