    The music here is truly remarkable. The first disk is especially good as they had better recording equipment and it captures Sonny at his peak…live…you can hear the cigarette smoke swirling around the notes of his extraordinary sax.

      For the studio recordings, this is a stunning work and worth it to own just for that. The live recordings are great too, but there’s a noticeable difference in sound quality.

        It maybe historically important for hardcore Sonny Rollins fans to have this album. I do not rate the music but the audio quality is terrible. The first LP has too much reverb. The 2nd and 3rd LP sound like AM radio or recordings from 1920s!

          Ok, the audio can be a bit patchy.
          But when you factor in the fantastic performances, fascinating reading material, and beautiful photos - this is a thoroughly enjoyable package and a significant historical document.

            First of, before buying it please read the story how it got together and how/why recordings sound as they do. The studio part stand apart of course versus the hard found (legendary) bootleg which is not sounding the best, but that makes sense after 60 years I think. It came from tapes, guys. C’mon.

            The studio recording is amazing, clean, crisp and en band members whom not have played together before sound like they did. The bootleg is an amazing performance, especially knowing how this/they all came together and really sparked the audience that night. Yeah, sound quality is not that great, but they did everything they could with the recording that was given. Sometimes, it’s not the amazing sound depth/placement etc. that takes you away whilst listening. But it’s the story, the magic, the spark between the trio.

            This is a treasure put together by sheer will, perseverance and drive with consent of Mr. Rollins himself. A little too pricey it seems, but pressing, booklet, effort, time and that ‘something special’ make it worth the penny.

              Just picked this one up. The sound is amazing. No warp or quality issues on mine. Has all 3 records (all different,no doubles of the same one). Was happy to find one so long after rsd black friday still in stock. Amazing sounding pressing would highly recommend!

                Just finished listening to all 3 LPs. Firstly, I really, really, REALLY loved the music on this thing. Like ALL of it. Rollins sounds incredible and so does Bennick! With that said, sound quality wise, nothing sounds as good as the first LP, side A and B. Side E and F are definitely the "worst" sounding. I had no issues with warped discs or missing LPs. Side F had some pops and ticks, but nothing too distracting. Is this overpriced? My honest answer is probably, but I don't have any regrets and I'm happy to have this in my collection. I honestly didn't mind the varying of sound quality.

                  I have no issues with missing LP's mine does go from side A all the way to side F. However: sticker on front saying: Premium Vinyl Pressing HQ-180 RTI, and it can be read that this is all mastered by Kevin Gray, so that does hint on some expectations.
                  I dont know where the QC was when my LP 1 and 3 came from the production line, but they are significantly warped, and since LP 2 is flat, I can only conclude from that, that LP 1 and 3 where already warped before they ended up in the sleeves... None the less still playable, and yes the studio recording on side A is definitely a great quality recording, but sets you back to bad AM broadcasts for the remaining side B through F (side F should have better be side A and vice versa). The Album itself does have a very nice 24 page insert and the album in total, is a very nice document, but I am VERY disappointed by the RTI pressing, also knowing that MoFi does their pressing at RTI, so they do know how to press a flat record (and its showing off now: all none MoFi RTI albums I have, there is always some issue with them) 65 euro's in NL, I would have at least expected better production quality...

                    Wow my copy has 2 disc 3s and is missing disc 1. You would think for $90 they would get their shit straight.

                      This is a real treat, from the performances (always love hearing Rollins in a trio, and Bennink is on fire throughout) to the in-depth notes and packaging. Yes, there are audience-sourced recordings in this collection, which naturally do not sound quite as crisp as the studio sessions (a little boxy, but well-balanced, with no trouble hearing all three players). If you're an audiophile, you'll be unhappy. If you're a jazz fan, you'll be in seventh heaven.
