All Analog 180g Vinyl LP!
Tone Poet Audiophile Vinyl Reissue Series!
Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from Original Analog Tape!
Produced By Music Matters' Joe Harley!
Pressed at RTI!

Michael Fremer Rated 8/10 Music, 9/10 Sonics!

In 1963, tenor saxophonist Harold Vick made his sole album as a leader for Blue Note, the underrated soul jazz gem Steppin' Out. The record finds its groove from the first downbeat and stays firmly in the pocket throughout this set featuring Blue Mitchell, Grant Green, John Patton, and Ben Dixon.

This stereo Tone Poet Vinyl Edition was produced by Joe Harley, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original analog master tapes, pressed on 180g vinyl at RTI, and packaged in a deluxe gatefold tip-on jacket.

The sound is classic RVG mid sixties modern clarity, with especially fine drum kit miking that keeps the cymbals present but not overly splashy and the snare pleasingly crisp. Patton's Leslie fills the centerstage with juicy lines and Vick's tenor clear and present. Overall a solid, fun filled, and kind of sensuous outing for sure... Step outside your Blue Note comfort zone and give this Vick a rub.
