Wow Mark, tunes from Porgy and Bess! That's very cool. 1958 is a very interesting year in jazz, lots of recordings I love recorded that year. Sort of like the year 1969 in rock, amazing the music recorded that year and what a turning point in some fields of rock and the careers of some artists.

This LP is another from my youth...released in 1971, the cover always intrigued me...Billy Preston had the same thing going on back then.  The music is interesting too. Her version of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" is beautiful.  Much different than Simon and Garfunkel's.  

I couldn't resist, I took out the RCA Clear Top 12AU7 and put the Raytheon in the ZP3...I'm not sure I can tell much difference but I think the Clear Top is the winner.  I'll give the raytheon some more time.  I think the biggest difference is from the EL34's vs the KT66's. The bass is a little flabby so I pushed the Bass controls on the Torii MK IV forward...much better. Mark.

This is the first time I've listened to this LP despite having purchased it in 1998.  It might surprise some but i don't like everything Keith Jarrett records.  This may be one I don't care for...so far the first song is far too "Free" for me.  We'll see what follows.  Mark.

PS...well Jarrett after the first song got to something I liked.  Here's the third tune. This is obviously going to be a mixed bag for me...

This will be the last LP tonight.  This LP was recorded a little more than a year before Jean Luc Ponty's first Atlantic Records release in 1975..."Upon The Wings Of Music"...both albums share the tune "Bowing Bowing".  All songs were written by Ponty and so it is more fusion than straight jazz. It should be no surprise that I like it but not as much as the Atlantic albums I've previously mentioned.  Mark.

     Great art work on the earth cover. I'm looking for that Cd is it Rare Earth or just earth so far not finding it. I'd like to give it a listen since being an old time guitar player myself.

Thanks!


Keep'em coming

Digger, I looked for the group's music and found several full albums on you tube and Ten on Spotify.  The group is not Rare Earth...just "Earth".  I can't say I particularly liked the few samples I listened to but everyone's tastes are different.  Vive la différence!  Mark.  

PS...here's the wiki page, another link and several you tube links to get you started....

       Thanks, I see what your talking about thanks for sorting it out for me wasn't sure if it was rare earth or just earth. It would take the right situation for me to sit and listen to it maybe? Definitely well done though.

        For any of us old time rockers I came across a band called Royal Southern Brotherhood brings back fond memories!



      One song I really like isn't on this album One Way Out. I thought this was a newer band doing a copy I think sounds good. Haven't taken the time to research this band. My age isn't necessarily progressing me in this direction but this is pretty good.

Yeah, Mark Found it. I have three of their albums now, the one I posted above I like because it's a slow, heavy, instrumental. The second one I got is full of loud screaming which is a big turn-off for me, the third is like the Honey one posted above, but with some cello mixed in, and I'm liking it even more.

Digger, glad to help. I'll listen to your link latter.  I've moved to the Listening Cave and only vinyl is allowed...at least for another month.

This LP next...I have all of Miles' 50's stuff...in fact multiple copies...but only on CD. I have a few of his Columbia reissues with his  first great quintet but can only find this one. I wanted to see how it sounds with all the new tubes and equipment.  Well, it's very nice indeed.  I'm really liking the EL34's and RCA Clear Top 12AU7 together.  Has anyone tried the 6L6 with their Torri...or anything besides the KT66 or EL34? I'd be interested in your opinions.  PM me if you want to respond off line.  Mark.

PS...how do I get the little PM box at the bottom of my posts?

Earth is interesting. I like the two that LR likes the best myself.

Here's a wikipedia entry for Earth; I learned from it!
