Miles Davis – Kind of Blue (33 1/3 RPM Clarity Vinyl) AUDIOPHILE MASTERPIECE LIMITED EDITION. Miles Davis Kind of Blue meets Analogue Productions’ UHQR, the pinnacle of high-quality vinyl! Definitive handmade limited run reissue Ultra High Quality Record! 33 1/3 RPM LP release limited to 25,000 copies. Pressed at Quality Record Pressings using Clarity Vinyl® on a manual Finebilt press. Purest possible pressing and most visually stunning presentation and packaging! Dream team of Davis, Adderley, Coltrane, Evans, Kelly, Chambers, Cobb make history. You really do feel like you’re in the recording studio with the band; the realism of the room is that stark. I’ve heard the UHQR called the “apex release, ” and can confirm this to be true. It is, simply put, a stunning record. Eric Pye, ecoustics. Com. Read Pye’s entire review here. The result (drum rolls) is the best-sounding Kind of Blue ever, superior in every way to all previous pressings, including the original. The pressing is superquiet, allowing the slightest of details to pop out from the black backdrop. Cobb’s drumkit is spooky real. I’ve heard this album, in one version or another, hundreds of times, and there are fine touches in Cobb’s snare swooshes and cymbal taps – accents on accents, rhythms within rhythms – that I’ve never heard before. Chamber’s bass lines are stunningly clear: the notes he’s playing, the pluck of the strings, the glow of the wood. There are also new layers of detail in Miles’ mouthpiece manipulations, Evans’s pedal work, and the sheer beauty of Coltrane’s and Adderley’s saxophones. The chase is eternal. This reissue holds the brass ring, for now. Fred Kaplan, Stereophile, August 2021. Quite clearly and obviously this new UHQR Kind of Blue sourced from Bernie Grundman’s (1997)’live’ mix from the 3-track master, directly to lacquer sounds best compared to two early’6-Eyes,’ Classic’s own double 180g set and that label’s single-sided 45rpm set, and Mobile Fidelity’s double 45 boxed edition, to which I compared the UHQR. Even the quietest original pressing creates a pleasing romantic blur over a soft bed of noise but compared to this issue the overall picture is distant and hazy (though the romanticized version still pulls). The UHQR offers the blackest, quietest backgrounds and unparalleled transparency, but more critically, the modified Finebuilt hand press produces unprecedented transient precision and instrumental focus and resolves low level details that will deliver surprises to even the most blasé KOB veteran, one of whom visited and exclaimed’I’ve never heard that before. This pressing allows you to see further into the mix and transports you back in time and into the 30th Street studios. I don’t care what version you now have you’ve never heard Kind of Blue quite like this. Music = 11/11; Sound = 11/11 Michael Fremer, AnalogPlanet. Com, May 17, 2021. Read the whole review here. Until now The Classic Records Clarity Vinyl Flat Profile version of Kind of Blue was the closest to the sound on the three track session master from which it was cut. The Analogue Productions UHQR pressing from the same metal parts has taken it up a notch and gotten us even closer to the sound on those 1/2 analog session master tapes! – Michael Hobson, founder of Classic Records. Legends have a way of sticking around. If there was ever an album awaiting a high-fidelity, custom-pressed vinyl treatment of the level you now hold in your hands, it is Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue. It continues to be one of the most listened-to and studied recordings of all time, a required primer for many young musicians, and one of the most transcendent pieces of music ever recorded. Davis played trumpet sublime with his ensemble sextet featuring pianist Bill Evans, drummer Jimmy Cobb, bassist Paul Chambers, and saxophonists John Coltrane and Julian “Cannonball” Adderley with Wynton Kelly playing piano on Freddy the Freeloader. Now Analogue Productions, the audiophile in-house reissue label of Acoustic Sounds, Inc. Together with Quality Record Pressings, is putting Kind of Blue where it belongs: the Ultra High Quality Record (UHQR) pressed on Clarity Vinyl on a manual Finebilt press with attention paid to every single detail of every single record. The 200-gram records will feature the same flat profile that helped to make the original UHQR so desirable. From the lead-in groove to the run-out groove, there is no pitch to the profile, allowing the customer’s stylus to play truly perpendicular to the grooves from edge to center. Clarity Vinyl allows for the purest possible pressing and the most visually stunning presentation. Every UHQR will be hand inspected upon pressing completion, and only the truly flawless will be allowed to go to market. Each UHQR will be packaged in a deluxe box and will include a booklet detailing the entire process of making a UHQR along with a hand-signed certificate of inspection. This will be a truly deluxe, collectible product. Kind of Blue is more than Miles Davis’s most enduring recording, it’s a testament to Miles’ experimental approach, drastically simplifying modern jazz by returning to melody unlike the chord complexity more often heard at the time. “The music has gotten thick, ” Davis complained in a 1958 interview for The Jazz Review. There will be fewer chords but infinite possibilities as to what to do with them. Kind of Blue is, in a sense, all melody – and atmosphere. None of the musicians had played any of the tunes before heading into the first of two recording sessions in early spring of 1959. In fact Miles had written out the settings for most of them only a few hours before the session. Miles also stuck to his old recording procedure of having virtually no rehearsal and only one take for each tune. Miles remained proud of the album, performing at least two of its tracks – “So What” and “All Blues” – for years after, until his musical path took him in a different direction. History was on the side of Kind of Blue; it was born in 1959, at the peak of the golden age of high-fidelity, featuring innovations in studio equipment (magnetic tape, high-quality condenser microphones), matched by advancements in home audio reproduction (long-player records – LPs; high-end turntables, and other stereo components). Kind of Blue also benefited from Miles’ being signed to the leading major record company of the day – Columbia Records, a part of the CBS media conglomerate. Columbia had the means and wisdom to invest in cutting edge recording technology, and their own professional recording studio. A minor audio complication with Kind of Blue has been addressed with this UHQR edition. The motor on the studio’s 3-track master recorder was running slowly the day of the album’s first session. This speed issue affected the album’s first three tracks, “So What, ” “Freddie Freeloader” and “Blue in Green, ” making them a barely perceptible quarter-tone sharp. This issue was finally addressed with the Classic Records reissue in 1995. This UHQR was pressed from the same parts that Bernie Grundman cut directly from the original 3-track masters for Classic in’95. Sixty years have passed; this LP bridges that time span in the best way possible, struck from the master reel of Kind of Blue, free of speed issues and replete with all the instrumental detail, sonic environment and minimal noise. As we set out to make our UHQR series the world’s best-sounding vinyl records, we have also used Clarity Vinyl, which is free of any carbon black pigment which might introduce surface noise. All-in-all this edition of Kind of Blue meets the highest audiophile standards and offers the truest sound for the most enjoyment.
