                              Yet another cracker from the Blue Note Tone Poet Series. Waited a while to grab this one as it was relatively available. Again, surprised at how much I love it. Great lineup, great packaging, great audio quality. People have been complaining about how hot Blakey's drums were recorded, but I didn't notice. I'll be grabbing pretty much everything they put out.

                              So yes there is quite a bit of distortion on the drums during a few tracks! However this is a issue with the recording, not the mastering or the pressing. Simply recorded too hot.
                              An otherwise enjoyable if not essential Blakey session.

                              Amazing Jazz Messengers recording. A couple of the tracks on side 1 (Afrique and Those Who Sit And Wait) had Art Blakey's drums blaring on the right channel and coming in a little "hot," but nothing that ruined the listening experience in the slightest. Lee Morgan is pretty much jumping out at you from the left channel and not once does it clip or sound distorted (unlike my first copy of The Sidewinder from the classic series that I had to exchange). This is simply an energetic, get out of your seat, session.
                              Unless there's obvious pressing issues, I think you just need to stand back and enjoy the energy of the music and hear the notes and not the ticks.

                              This is another great session by Art Blakey and the Jazz messagers. Not too concerned by the drum parts being hot or not, as my main concern was having bought a brand new record, being warped with a big scratch on the B-side, producing a loud tick noise on every rotation on B1 and B2. And it had the usual fingermarks on the disc. QC must be better at RTI!

                              My brand new copy of this pressing had visible and audible scratches. Quality control should be better on record plants.

                              There are some rough drum parts but I don’t think they’re so bad that they detract from a pleasurable listening experience. Mostly, everything sounds clear and well defined to me. Some of the bass tones are really low and when they interact with the drums they can get kind of hot but I don’t hear distortion or blown out tones. There was nothing else fatiguing during listening and I listen to my records fairly loud. There are some fairly deep bass tones on this record and I wonder if that may be the reason some people think there is distortion on this record. The heavy cymbals and pounding drum solos, especially on Lost & Found are a little messy but that was the only track where I sensed the treble might have been driven too hard. Also on The Witch Doctor, the ride cymbals do sound a little menacing, slurring the sound a bit. And let’s not mention the crazy drum solo on Afrique which sounds like an industrial nightmare reverb-laden drum machine. But hey that’s what drums sounded like back then. They recorded drums with the natural reverb of the recording room and that echo gave the drums a kind of larger-than-life sound at the time. Obviously it translates to distortion or undefined tones on a modern reissue but that’s the way it was recorded and there’s really no way around some of the blemishes of these recordings. Side 2 sounds a lot better. For the most part I think this record sounds great.

                              Fantastic, hard charging session. Lots of fun. 4/5 stars due to the fairly jarring drum distortion during the drum solos and more emphatic fills.

                              As always, RTI pressings for Tone Poet are excellent. I didn't know this title TBH, and found myself loving the tracks composed by Lee Morgan and Wayne Shorter. Hate the cover design tho.

                              The 2021 Tone Poet remaster and pressing of The Witch Doctor sounds as good as the original, it freshens up the sound stage and stays true to the tightness of the production. This is not a laidback session, there is a lot going on and everything about the performance is forward leaning and cool as ever. In many older Jazz Messengers albums Art Blakey’s drums are mixed too far to the back for me, mostly capturing the splashy top end and hardly any of the bottom. But here there is a little more of the full drum range (Personally I would like to hear a bit more definition of the lower drum tones). The other players are even more detailed in the mix, framing the grove that makes this album feel so bad-ass, especially on the title track when Merritt and Shorter start to play a funky duet together. This is that Jazz sound that makes me walk taller, think smarter and feel more attractive. The Witch Doctor is album I love coming back to not just because of the fat moods that burst forward from the Jazz Messengers but also for the dynamic sound range and the ‘hips’ that the percussion gives to the overall music direction of the album.

                              I'm guessing this sounds as great as Gray could make it. Don't get me wrong, it's a great pressing but the drums seem like they were recorded hot. I've heard that was a van gelder thing, but I'm not an expert.
                              Again, it sounds great and the performances are amazing, just wish the low end of the drums wasn't blown out!
