This one is so good!

PS....Lon, What do you think of the Jazz Crusaders Mosaic Box set of their Pacific Jazz recordings...I'm assuming you have it.  Mark.

Yeah Mark, those Sphere lps are great (I have them on cd, no longer on lp). I think Mosaic did a great job on the Jazz Crusaders set. They hired Malcolm Addey to remix and master the set and there's like over a dozen lps in that set I think, and they sound both consistent and damned good across the set.

Right before I went to bed I put some John Lee Hooker on the stereo and he said to let that boy boogie. So I put on some Hot Tuna, LOUD when I got here this afternoon.



And then I got a delivery of a Helen Merrill date I never had and finally found a good priced copy of, so I'm going to pretend Christmas was just around the corner for an hour.





Helen always transports me somewhere mellow and nice. The engineers and producers should have received an award for this one in '91. Beautiful sound on this cd. (I have the earlier JVC, not the 2010).

Lon,  now you've done it...you set off a "Velvet Fog" attack!  If you told me I'd enjoy Mel in College, I would have told you "You are crazy...Never", same with Sinatra and Musical Theater.  But once I got to my mid 30's and 40's I began appreciating Jazz vocals and Musicals.  Funny how that happened.  

I looked for the duet with Helen and Mel on you tube....no luck.  I'm sure it's wonderful.  Mark.

Yeah it's nice. The crown on this one is "If I were a Bell," which just swings in that beautiful way Helen could.

Lon,  I just switched to the ZP3 to CSP3 to Taboo amp to Audeze LCD 2.2 Cans with  Balanced Silver widow Cables....it takes Mel to a New Dimension....Outa this World.

I'm not sure how much Helen Merrill I've got.  I know I've got at least these two on CD.  Mark.

I have to tell you.  The stock tubes in the CSP3 and Taboo with the ancillary equipment I've described is about just what I want.  The LCD's with the Silver Widow cables is just about the perfect mix of detail and warmth to my ears.  Now if I could just warm the HD800's a little.  There is a mod that someone over at HeadFi told me about I may try...putting a circle of felt inside the ear cups is what it seems to amount to.  It is supposed to decrease treble brightness.  This might be the easiest and cheapest way to solve my problem with the HD800's.

PS...for anyone else who has the same "Brightness" problem with the HD800s , here's a link to an analysis of and instructions on the Mod.

Both good ones. I've been collecting her stuff a few decades, she's very different from other singers and I think she has great taste in material and personnel. I really like the albums she did with Dick Hyman.
