on avid remastering,
This review is from: Three Classic Albums Plus (Groove Blues / Boss Tenor / Blue Gene) (Audio CD)
I find these Avid reissues frustrating. The music is generally excellent and well-chosen, the packaging interesting and reasonably well done. The remastering is, however, variable. This Ammons is very well remastered and, with the Jim Hall, the best I have so far heard. At the price it is therefore a very attractive package. I have heard the Avid Stitt and Eldridge reissues, and while the sound is satisfactory there are certainly better remasters even among the budget reissues (Real Gone Jazz, Not Now Music).The Clifford Brown and Art Pepper Avids I thought particularly poor.

Yeah I have found the Clifford Brown set's sound is too harsh, almost unbearable at certain selections. Not Now Music is much better, but the selections are limited. Real Gone Jazz I haven't tried. Perhaps I should do that sometime in the future. How does it fare compared to the Not Now Music?
