Art Pepper is a Favorite of mine and this  live album is incredible.   "Blues for the Fisherman" (1980). Not sure how to attach a photo...Mark.

The new SACD version from the "High Vibrations" SACD box set. Some of these are too loud and even distorted, but others in the set are excellent. I've never heard this one sound this good before (and I have the vinyl bought when the lp was first released).

I got this one in the mail just before I left on a business trip (to Peoria!). I  only got a few minutes with it but I liked what I heard! It's going to need a proper sit-down listen after midnight sometime soon. Thanks for the recommendation Lon! I got that other CD of Steve Wilson - Insurgentes. It didn't catch my attention as much as this Blu-Ray did - but to be fair I was soldering new silver ICs for myself and maybe a few to sell, so I was focused on my work. I'll give it a proper listen later.

What's really got my attention this week (should have posted it earlier) is ALT-J - An Awesome Wave. Unfortunately, I heard the single hit the local Alternative station...which to me means they aren't cool anymore.  ;D

I'm glad you're enjoying it. It's rather. . .uninspiring to me, generic pogf/smooth jazzy. I much prefer Insurgentes! That one has cojones!

I do wish he'd write some different sort of tales in his lyrics though, he's continually a Debbie Downer.

I picked up on that dreariness, even without listening to the lyrics. I guess I'm one of those that hears the music and has trouble focusing on the message.

I have not played my favorite for awhile. I have him on right now.  The incomparable Mr. Sonny Stitt ....meets the Oscar Peterson Trio. He just blows my mind every time...goes right to my Soul...and pushes the goose bumps out without any hesitation.

Tonight I think: Stan Getz, Charlie Parker, Cannonball Adderly, Lester Young, Joe Henderson, Ben Webster & Johnny Hodges get rolled out!!

Keep coming back to this one. Excellent sound and performance, and the song selection has taught me a bit about Jobim's own writing and his taste and thinking that I haven't been led to elsewhere.

I really enjoy this new reissue program of albums on the Bethlehem label. They relased about 70 in Japan and so far have released five in the US; both series sound the same to me and that is really GOOD. I have some of these titles on either a US or Japanese release from the past, these new ones sound better.

Right now, one of the two Max Bennett Bethlehems:

You must have an amazing collection of media, Lon. Someday I'll have to go through this thread from the beginning and see if I can learn about some "new" stuff. Having been away from "listening" for 12+ years, my CD collection starts in the late '80s and drops dead around 2001. I never really got much out of my comfort zone compared to the stuff I see posted in this thread. I'm going to change that now that I've got a better setup at home.

Yes, I've been collecting a long time, without stop, and I have wide musical interests from classical to reggae (but to be honest 70% of it is probably jazz!) I love music. That's why I love my Decware and PS Audio and Rega components--they let me just enjoy the music no matter how it sounds!

It's an amazing time to be a music lover!
