Right, plus Blu-ray, DVD and CD sets released today of the American Masters doc (plus bonus concert footage) and the Miami Pop Festival live material.

I just finished listening to this one. What's better than one Bill?...two or three.  Actually this is not a favorite.  A bit too busy with all the over dubbing, also quite a bit of tape hiss even though this is a Verve Master Edition remaster.  I prefer one Bill with or without Bass and drums.  Mark.

This is the last CD I listened to before watching "American Masters" on Hendrix last night.  I bought this 10...15years ago but hadn't listened to it.  Jim hall, Paul Desmond, Chet Backer are all stunning.  Mark.

More of these Haydn symphonies. Nice live sound. My Dad and I are trying to use this to calm ourselves as my Mom goes deeper and deeper into these hallucinations she has due to her dementia that manifest as messages printed on the garage across the street or on the wall in the house. Sigh. Tough stuff to be a part of.

Lon,  this one's in the queue for tonight and that "Satch Plays Fats" CD you posted earlier...I actually have but the older Columbia Jazz Masterpieces  edition.  But the real reason for this post is to ask if you bought the most recent Ellington box from Mosaic.  If so could you comment on it...especially the sound quality in your system.  Thanks, Mark.

I was in a crabby mood after driving home from my business trip to Peoria to find the house trashed...so I played this and a bunch more like it while I spent the night cleaning up.




Then after I accomplished a bunch, I was in a better mood and played some of this while I worked on one of my other hobbies (Building precision AR-15 rifles) before going to bed. If you guys haven't heard Musica Nuda, I highly, highly recommend it. It's nothing but cello and an excellent, powerful female voice! And she sings in like 3-4 different languages. Very well recorded, and little 2 watt amps handle it well since it's not a busy as Rock/Metal or Classical which seems to overwhelm my little Zen amp when it gets really busy.

Mark,

For the last three years or so I've pre-ordered every Mosaic set. I have this one and gave away other cds that I had with this material before. The  sound is excellent. The music is sublime.

I still have the LPs of this material as that's another kettle of fish, I have this on Columbia LP reissues and Smithsonian LPs, all sounding very good.

Well, I listened to this Velvet Underground album...the second CD in a box set I have.  As I listened I thought...I paid money for this? I'm not sure what I saw in the past here but except for occasional moments, I can't call my experience pleasurable.  As I listened I thought, if I can listen to this completely surely I can give "Bitches Brew" another whack. I'm amazed to see how complete Miles Davis' discography is on Spotify. Pretty much everything from Prestige and Columbia including all the box sets and much more.  Long story short, I'm listening to "Bitches Brew" as I type...my opinion hasn't changed but I'll listen to the whole thing. I must like punishment...hehe. Mark.

Do you not like Bitches Brew, or Miles Davis?

I've worn the grooves off Kind of Blue - but I don't care much for Jazz. I'm trying more Jazz as of late, trying to expand my palate. I know I've got a copy of Bitches Brew around here somewhere...I'll give it a spin tonight....or maybe it's something I need to work up to?

LR,  I am a huge Miles Davis fan.  I didn't listen to any of it in High School, maybe a few reissues of earlier Miles in College but collected almost all his output in the late 80's to early 90's on CD...I have all the Boxes with one exception.  I have a problem getting into some "Electric" or "Free" Jazz.  I can't get past about 1969 or so with Miles....Really don't like most things after and including "Bitches Brew"...not for lack of trying though. Mark.

Knowing I like Kind of Blue - please PM me some recommendations for me to track down and try out?

When I have time this weekend, I'm going to see about getting Spotify to work through my DAC to ZEN setup and do some searching for new horizons. I was reminded of some electronica with female vocals I enjoy this morning, so I have lots on my "to search for list" for this weekend.

LR,  I'll send specific CD/LP recommendations sometime...don't hold your breath though.  But in the meantime on Spotify most studio work I would recommend is on the "Complete Miles Davis with John Coltrane" box set..Red cover, the marathon sessions of the first great quintet in 1956 with Prestige.  These were to fulfill their recording contract before going to Columbia.  They are all on the Prestige box set "Chronicles" with a blue cover...these would be the last CDs of the box. Then the box set of the second great Quintet with Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock...sort of a green-yellow cover.  This second quintet took me a while to get into.  All are on Spotify.  Check them out.  Mark. PS...I'll go find pictures of them and post.

The last.  LR, get a pair of ear buds and just stick them into your computer...the sound is better than you would expect.  I use Sennhieser CX-500s...they cost about $30 on sale years ago. Of course this is only for sampling. For critical listening, Decware equipment is necessary...hehe Mark.  PS... My Torii and ZP3 are in the mail.  Yipee!
