Blue Note (Music Matters)
180 Gram Audiophile Virgin Vinyl LP 45 RPM - 2 LPs Sealed
In 1961, Lee Morgan and Wayne Shorter formed the frontline of one of the greatest versions of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. In 1967 they had a reunion for The Procrastinator, showing just how much they both had grown through the years. Morgan, who had a major hit with The Sidewinder a few years earlier, had broken away from the Clifford Brown trumpet tradition to become a brash, adventurous and consistently stunning soloist who perfectly symbolized the era.

Morgan's brand of forward-looking hard bop was influenced by free jazz and put a premium on uninhibited self-expression. Shorter sounded unlike anyone else and wrote highly original compositions. Playing in a sextet with Bobby Hutcherson and Herbie Hancock, Morgan and Shorter contributed all of the songs which include the funky Party Time and other pieces that push hard bop to its limit. The results are exhilarating, vital and timeless.

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.
