TP-026 getting ready to ship!
« on: April 23, 2015, 02:46:10 pm »
We are putting the finishing touches on the first run of TP-026, Oliver Nelson's Afro/American Sketches. Along with its talented composer/musician this album has a bunch of other great things going for it. It's a jazz orchestra, and the complexity and texture of orchestral music is something that tape excels in delivering. And it was recorded by a giant, Rudy Van Gelder. The sonics of the brass and percussion on this album are quite mesmerizing. Charter subscribers should see their copies soon and we will have TP-026 for sale in our online store right after that.

Awesome!
I'll shine up the system this weekend (totally behind on my audiophile chores).

Mine too!
I should have time to really sit down and do some serious listening in the next few days.

OK so at least three people on the planet were to have received this title in a few days after posting their squeels of delight and other than Ironbut no one else has gotten around to playing the darn tape and telling the rest of us how it sounds?

I am not bitter; no not me!

No offence Ironbut.  Your taste is impeccable.

Mine just arrived and it's in the listening queue! 😄 Have  a couple of other reviews to finish first.
