As a lover of the classical Blue Note Records, I am very happy about the Blue Note Tone Poet Series, which exists since 2019:

Thre records are very well made, remasterd for vinyl from the original analog tapes.

Highest recomendation!

Agreed. Probably have about 90% of these. The ones I dont have Im not too fussed about owing.Very good value 

However, the 80 and Classic reissues offer even greater value :-)

Thats true! The 80th series and the classic series are very well made and a true bargain.

I agree that the Tone Poet records are superb and great value.  If you are interested in jazz outside of blue note there are also another two series of reissues that are excellent and reasonably priced ( at least in the USA)

The Acoustic Sounds series:


and from Craft Recordings:

Keith

Marantz TT-15S1, Maestro V2, Accession MM, Icon Audio Stereo 40 Mk lll, Wharfedale Jade 3.

Mac Mini, BitPerfect, Dynaudio Xeo2

Marantz SA-15S1, Apple TV, Cambridge CXA60, B&W DM2000, REL Sub

I have a bunch of the Tone Poet and BN80 series. Most of them are excellent. 

There are a few titles that suffer from severe tape flutter issues but this problem seems to have been solved, or maybe they are just choosing titles to do that have less tape problems since the issue was raised. I won't go into more detail here, but you can find some discussion on that if you search around. 

RE: the new Verve Acoustic Sounds series, I only have one of those, which is A Love Supreme. I do plan to try more down the line. 

RE: Craft, I'm afraid some of those Chet titles suffer from the tape flutter issue as well. I passed on that boxset and individual reissues as a result. 

Lots of good jazz reissues out there. The French label Sam Records does some great stuff, as well as the UK label Pure Pleasure. Also, Speakers Corner is another good one to look for.

I concur with the Sam Records and Pure Pleasure suggestion since I have a few of those but I admit that I have not yet heard anything from Craft.  I have two Chet titles on preorder so I guess I will reserve judgement until I get those.

Oh whats the Verve Live Supreme pressing like? Might take a look at that one

I have the Gil Evans and Ray Charles Verve on pre order, so looking forward to these 2 :-)

I will have a dig into Sam so thanks for the recommendation

Agree its a good time for Jazz Reissues. The Impex Patricia Barber One Step is very good if thats your thing and so is the Legrand Jazz 45rpm also on Impex. Then theres the MOFI One Step but im sure theres another thread for these lol

Missed out on the John Coltrane Craft One Step release. Will need to keep my eyes peeled for the next bunch

Back to Blue Note, im currently playing Bobbi Humphrey - Blacks & Blues (Jazz Funk) Blue Note 80 as I type :-)
