This is an original German ECM promo pressing with absolutely superb sound from start to finish. It's very natural and transparent, and the immediacy is off the charts. Throw this one on and listen to the way the music sounds like it's happening right there in the room with you. That's one of my favorite thing about a great immersive ECM recording -- it can stop feeling like a record and just become an experience. Musically it's quite nice as well, on the mellower side with nice interplay between Jarrett and the rest of the band.
4 1/2 stars Allmusic: "Successfully bucked the powerful electric trends of its time and holds up well today."
Vinyl: EX (some superficial hairlines under the hardest light)
Cover: VG+ (promo sticker, light corner wear, some standard laminate peeling)
Play notes: Sounds absolutely amazing and plays very quietly, killer record!
We prefer to overdeliver and therefore grade conservatively. Our scale runs Near Mint (NM), Excellent (EX), Very Good Plus (VG+), Very Good (VG), Good Plus (G+), Good (G).
