Incredible Jazz Records + the original analog master tapes + cut at 45 RPM + mastered by Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman at AcousTech + pressed on two 180-gram virgin vinyl LPs by RTI = THE ULTIMATE LP REISSUE!
"A Perfect 10" Highly Recommended Blue Note vinyl from Wayne Garcia of The Absolute Sound!
The same formula that made the Fantasy 45 Series perhaps the most successful audiophile reissue collection ever is now being reapplied to Blue Note reissues!
In Hootin' 'N Tootin' the listener is afforded the opportunity of hearing numbers of a famous orchestra noted for its smart arrangements along the rhythm and blues influence. The moods expressed are in the "down home" and "down to earth" groove. Under the leadership of Fred Jackson, tenor sax, the listener is propelled into the world of the new truth.
"Though not one of the better-known Blue Notes, this album really cooks, and is sonically quite fine. The stage is wide, allowing the natural warmth and weight of the organ, tenor, and electric guitar to bloom." - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, June/July 2009
"The stage opens up the entire room, and the natural warmth and weight of the organ, tenor, and electric guitar are the sonic equivalent of a dip in a hot springs. If the phrase weren't already taken I'd call this 'hot buttered Soul'" - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, November 2015
