Yes. These were well recorded to begin with so JVC had something real to work with. I own several XRCDs and they have never missed.

"Take Love Easy" in incredible on vinyl. I don't have the CD for coparison, but the master of Ella and Joe Pass is one of the very best recordings of her voice. Pass takes a back seat with some incredible comping that's flawlessly recorded.
So, I think that you should buy the best format that you can afford, because the masters must be truly stunning.
There's another Ella release with Joe Pass, I forget the name, but it's just as good as "Take Love Easy".
