This XRCD 2 recording represents a milestone for TBM in several ways. First and foremost it is by far the most musically accomplished set TBM has ever produced. Kato is a very gifted guitarist who approaches standards like "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To" and Monk's "Ruby My Dear" with a creative freshness that is a joy to hear. His bandmates are world class in their execution and creative style. It wouldn't be a TBM recording without superb sonics and here again, Tee Fujii has outdone himself. Check out the incredible dynamics on Kato's version of the Sonny Rollins classic "Oleo." This XRCD is destined to be a "demo" classic.
