The original Jazz At The Pawnshop album, recorded in 1976, has been regarded as “The Best Jazz Recording of the Century!” (also available at NativeDSD along with Jazz At The Pawnshop Volumes 2 and 3).
Anyone who owns Jazz At The Pawnshop will not be able to resist this album and experiencing the enduring spirit of an incredible musical evening. It’s called Late Night because these tapes come from previously unreleased recording of the last two sets played late-hours at the closing of the famous Jazz At The Pawnshop recording.
The record company accidentally fell upon this treasure while looking for the masters of Volume II of the original album. The 40 year-old tapes were in excellent condition, and over a week was spent editing and mastering them in high resolution.
The album keeps the musical tag which bands played to indicate the end of a set. A slow fade-out and fade-in was made to identify the break before the last one. You can hear the musicians walking back on stage, picking up their instruments, and getting into the final set of an electrifying evening.

NativeDSD Technical Advisor
Jazz At The Pawnshop Late Night sounds excellent. As you would expect from recordings made at the Jazz at the Pawnshop sessions.
I’m certainly glad that they found the extra songs and brought them to Stereo DSD 256. It is an album that fans of the original Jazz At The Pawnshop recordings will want to add to their collection.

The sound is reference quality. Uncommonly good. From the original analog recording transferred to DSD it is, in my opinion, perfect. At least for the present technology.
One can hardly find something more spectacular to demonstrate audio equipment. Testing is possible provided that you have been in live jazz concerts in small clubs. You know very well how this music sounds in reality. On the right audio equipment it provides a strong sense of presence.
Sound Quality: 10/10
