Art Blakey / Moanin' / Music Matters


the pressing

The now defunct Music Matters reissue label was known for their unparalleled Blue Note reissues. I once listened to an interview with Don Was, the president of Blue Note, who commented that his label was incapable of getting MM quality on Blue Note's own reissues and that he had no idea how Music Matters managed to make records that sounded so much like the original releases. 

This is a bold statement for the original label to make but one that is absolutely accurate when referring to this Art Blakey masterpiece. I've heard many pressings of this title and have to say that the Music Matters is the best I've heard -- even when considering the original '59 deep groove. 

In addition to the stunning sound, Music Matters packaging is top-notch, with this pressing offering up beautiful black-and-white photos of the players in the gatefold.

Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearant Audio and issued in 2014.
