Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is one of the best sounding of the recordings in the Mercury Living Presence series which, as a group, has been legendary for years in audiophile circles for spectacularly realistic sound. The Tabuh-Tabuhan/Sessions/Thomson disc has also always been one of the rarest to find. Add in some wonderfully enjoyable and unique repertoire and you have a demonstration disc that is simply irresistible, and at long last readily available at an affordable price!
