180 Gram Audiophile Virgin Vinyl LP - Sealed
Recorded 11-12 November 1987 at CMC Studio in Rome, Italy, this quartet recording features Charlie Haden on double bass, Chet Baker on trumpet, Enrico Pieranunzi on piano and Billy Higgins on drums. Haden, who is given top billing here, is an American double bassist best known for his long-standing association with Ornette Coleman and his Liberation Music Orchestra of the 1970s. Haden, along with drummer Billy Higgins (also featured here) both played together Coleman‟s 1959 groundbreaking The Shape Of Jazz To Come. The quartet is filled out with celebrated Italian pianist Enrico Pieranunzi and the legendary Chet Baker on trumpet, making this recording a kind of supergroup‟ album. In fact each man is given a chance to showcase his skills through his own compositions or trademark pieces, beginning with Charlie Parker‟s Visa, which gives each man a chance to solo, followed by Haden‟s gorgeous Silence, Pieranunzi‟s Echi, Chet Baker‟s signature tune, My Funny Valentine, Thelonious Monk‟s piano masterwork, Round About Midnight and closing with the jazz standard Conception. The album is also dedicated to Baker who had died by the time the album was released.

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.
