Limited edition Gold CD from Impex Records
Deluxe book packaging
24K HDCD-encoded Gold CD mastered by Kevin Gray
Original photos from the TBM archives and a new set of essays from NPR's "Rhythm Planet" host Tom Schnabel
Few, if any, international audiophile jazz recordings have maintained the kind of deep and profound influence over techniques and even entire label repretoire as Three Blind Mice's Blow Up, Midnight Sugar and Misty.
The of-the-moment realism of Yoshihiko Kannari's recordings and production aesthetic of producer and label head Takeshi "Tee" Fujii have been the benchmark to match. It is to their immense credit that Blow Up, Midnight Sugar, and Misty have yet to be matched, even 40 years later.
Impex, who as Cisco Music has had a long association with Tee and Three Blind Mice, has finally made available these seminal recordings on its state-of-the-art 24K, HDCD-encoded Gold CD for this first time ever. Kevin Gray's careful, unobtrusive mastering provides a near-analog like listening experience while you explore the deluxe book packaging with original photographs from the Three Blind Mice archives and a new set of essays from NPR's "Rhythm Planet" host Tom Schnabel.
