Superb digital rendering by Robert Parker et al. Worth buying for the famous sarrusophone interlude on 'Mandy Make Up Your Mind' alone! What a pity that neither the ABC nor the BBC sees fit to reissue the entire Robert Parker output. There were 20 or so Parker discs sold on vinyl, cassette and (more rarely) CD in the 1980's. Someone should advise the BBC that there is a continuing market for the Jazz Classics in Digital Stereo series and reissues would be welcome.
Yet another "remastered into digital stereo" from the late Robert Parker. Quite how he did it is beyond me, but the sound quality is beyond compare.
I already had some Sidney Bechet but having come across this I could not resist buying it, I am so pleased with it. 16 tracks from the 1920's/30's and an excellent booklet with full discograghy, well recommeneded.
