The Right Touch (Tone Poet): Vinyl LP43879837
Label: Blue Note
Release Date: 4th August
Such a tender playful record from Duke and his unbelievable band, a real dream team. Some romance, some latin, some super snappy hard bops that have such an insatiable skip. An absolute gem added to the Tone Poet series.
Duke Pearson’s 1967 album The Right Touch is perhaps the finest of his career and a showcase for the breadth of his talents as a pianist, composer, and arranger. Six memorable Pearson original are performed by a dynamic 8-piece band including Freddie Hubbard, Stanley Turrentine, and James Spaulding.
This stereo Tone Poet Vinyl Edition was produced by Joe Harley, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original analog master tapes, pressed on 180g vinyl at RTI, and packaged in a deluxe gatefold tip-on jacket.
