“In preparing these hi def remasters, we were very conscientious about maintaining the feel of the original releases while adding a previously unattainable transparency and depth. It now sounds like you've set up your chaise lounge right in the middle of Rudy Van Gelder's studio!” - Blue Note President, Don Was.
The Opener is Curtis Fuller’s remarkable debut on Blue Note Records. The trombonist delivers a fine set that features the tunes, “A Lovely Way To Spend An Evening,” “Here's To My Lady” and “Soon.” Fuller is joined by Hank Mobley, Bobby Timmons, Paul Chambers and Art Taylor.
...terrific laid-back hard-bop.
