Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound 

“… successful enough to spawn a successor album Side by Side. Both albums have long been collectables with jazz lovers as well as audiophiles, as they contribute top-notch music with fabulous sound. … the new mastering by the late George Marino of Sterling Sound brings out more detail and texture to the instrumental sound than the original. Sterling Sound’s reissues of the 1960s material from the MGM period have been dramatically better than the reissues. The improvement here is real but not as dramatic. Still, this is a first-class reissue.” — Recording = 9.5/10; Music = 9/10 — Dennis D. Davis, Hi-Fi +, Issue 96

“…these are all truly classic Verve titles that you simply don’t want to miss…most importantly, the sound of these reissues is nothing short of astounding. Particularly the early Billie and Ella mono records are incredible treasures of sonic beauty. I’d definitely ask Santa for the whole set, or, if you want to cherry pick, the most classic titles. Whatever you decide, you owe yourself at least a half dozen!” Winner of a 2012 Positive Feedback Online Writers’ Choice Award – Danny Kaey, Positive Feedback Online, November/December 2011
