1962 jazz album by saxophonist Dexter Gordon featuring the lineup of Sonny Clark, Butch Warren and Billy Higgins. This was the same quartet from the classic album Go!, which was recorded only days earlier. 

"I’ve heard both albums [Tina Brooks/Back To The Tracks & Dexter Gordon/A Swingin' Affair] in various forms, and these XRCDs compare with the very best of them. If you’re looking for the definitive digital versions, your search can begin and end here." - John Crossett, www.theaudiobeat.com, 4.5/5 Music, 4/5 Sound 

"A Swingin’ Affair, featuring Gordon up front and a rhythm section of pianist Sonny Clark, bassist Butch Warren, and drummer Billy Higgins, shows a man totally in control of his instrument and art. Gordon wrote two of the numbers recorded here, the classics-in-waiting "Soy Califa" and "McSplivens," both of which grab attention with their up-tempo beats. His tone is huge, almost as big as the man himself, who stood (towered may be a better word) six feet six inches tall. But he could swing, as demonstrated by his two contributions to this album, as well as play ballads, "Don't Explain" and "You Stepped Out of a Dream" offering ample evidence." - John Crossett, www.theaudiobeat.com, 4.5/5 Music, 4/5 Sound 

"When I listened to the Audio Wave XRCD release of [AWMXR0008] Lee Morgan - Tomcat I was awestruck. My conclusion was that rather than comparing digital to analog, a more logical conclusion was that the entire digital vs. analog debate becomes irrelevant when listening to a recording that is so far superior to anything that has come before it. My analog setup costs six times what my digital one does, but given the same Blue Note title on LP or XRCD I'd choose the XRCD each time. I question the motive of any writer who claims that there is an LP re-issue that equals the sound you all are achieving." 

"I recently purchased three more Audio Wave Blue Note titles and the sound on each of them is really stunning. The clarity (without any brightness), dynamics, instrumental timbres and subtlety that I hear in these performances is amazing. You can really hear the emotion and intent of the performers in a way I have not experienced with my Blue Note records before, be it an original pressing, RVG remaster or one of the 45 rpm re- issues from other labels. When playing [AWMXR0010] Horace Silver- Cape Verdean Blues over the weekend, my mom (who was visiting from out of town) and daughter actually came in the room and started dancing around. Its magic on a silver disc."
