      What Tom said. At one time I owned the first 250 or so SteepleChase releases, my favorites were the aforementioned Shepp/Parlan records, most if not all the Chet Baker records were excellent and the two Shirley Horn albums got a lot of play time, IIRC there was a Ben Webster record too. There's a 6000 series that released rare european performances by Bud Powell, Jackie McLean, Dexter Gordon among others, great music but the SQ on these is variable. I would avoid the German Alto 180g reissues from around '90 they were universally inferior to original pressings (noisy, for one).

          Thank you... I will keep my eye out for your recommendations, I found that material and quality was excellent on this particular album.. looking for more. You've given me good direction.

          Cheers.

          There are some wonderful Steeplechase albums! The three that Rob recommends are excellent. I seem to have had better results than Rob with the 180 gram reissues. There's definitely a dozen Steeplechases that belong in collections. I will have to look the albums out.

          This is is one that I highly recommend. Just remember that some of the later Steeplechases are digital.

          What I'm curious about are the differences, if any, between Steeplechase and Inner City. I've seen the same recording on both labels.

            AFAIK Inner City was a US-based budget label that also reissued other audiophile labels like Eastwind's D2D but cut from tape. If you play the Eastwind D2D "The Three " with Ray Brown Shelly Manne and Joe Sample (an awesome recording, btw) and the Inner City version, its obvious they were both from the same session but the performances were completely different! I do acquire Inner City pressing but only as a last resort.
