Today I have some time by myself to listen to jazz. These are rare moments when I'm all alone, so I'm enjoying it to the full. I decided to put on Hank Mobley's "Hank" on Blue Note 1560. I haven't listened to this album on the new, updated system. It sounds phenomenal. The clarity of every possible detail when the band is playing is magical. It's a superb hard bop album. I've got a very clean copy which sounds as new. You could says it's a surreal feeling to put on this 50's original 1st pressing and having it sound as new. The jacket is also as new, just some beautiful patina giving away it's age.

Christmas will soon be here, with some days off work. Looking forward to that. This time of the year is actually one of my favorite times, cause I love Christmas. I love the food and the drinks and being with my family. I will try and find some quality time to relax with some more jazz then as well. A glass of some Christmas ale and a few candles and maybe some Chet Baker or something...

It's been a great moment to soak up some jazz on vinyl. Have a nice Sunday and stay tuned for more rare pieces.
