Just finished this one. I don't recommend it...poor sound and the playing isn't that great.  There are a lot of good Chet Baker albums.  This is not one of them.  This comes from a huge Chet Baker Fan.  Next, a little Dave Brubeck from the Big Box...

Yeah I have an Archie Shepp in that series, I love Shepp but that isn't a good one.

Mozart string quartets going here. Rolled a few tubes in the Torii Mk II now over here at Dad's, sounds good.

Dutch singer Ann Burton, very nice and sweet and late hours. Great sound too.

Man loves Strats. Me too. I think he's a big dick but he can play. Last time I saw him on TV he was playing a Gretsch, and with Chick Corea, Wallace Roney and a few other ringers.

Now, one of the first lps I ever owned, though I'm listening to the new Japanese 24 bit remaster. My lp was mono, my earlier cd is mono, this is stereo, which I've heard before but is always a trip to hear.

Just an amazing, amazing album. I listened to this for a few years when I was living in Swaziland and then onwards when we returned to the States. No wonder I never found a gal in Geauga County, Ohio when I wanted to find a gal who was like Aretha sang a woman was. Aretha is a force of nature. This one is still my favorite though that may be because it was my one and only for so long. Each tune is like a little life story. And the music is so bitchin'! "Save Me" has always been a yardstick for me in how to rock steady!

I'm starting the two hours I have to listen with a replay of The Dave Brubeck Quartet's "Gone With The Wind" album that I began yesterday then I'll move on to this Chet Baker CD recorded in November of 1979 in Germany that I don't recall ever listening to.  The All Music Guide rates it 4.5 stars out of 5...we'll see.  The review copied below sounds interesting.  Mark.

"This was a record not so much of rhythm as of tonal coloring, pitch and reverberation. This was also an avant-garde Chet Baker, without gimmicks, just meeting an interest to expand and further develop: to invent, expand, create. This was also very beautiful creativity; art for art's sake. Wolfgang Lackerschmid played vibes in a manner owing itself more to Red Norvo and Gary Burton than Milt Jackson, and proved himself to be a creator and artist in his ebb and flow with the trumpeter. Bravos for both artists."

Well,  that Chet Baker CD was good.  I still prefer Chet in a more spare setting but I have to admit everyone played well and even though I was unfamiliar with most of the tunes, I enjoyed this album.  I will listen to it again.  This album was very well recorded...they got the  Double Bass just right.  Despite being manufactured in 1986, this CD's sound was exceptional.

Next, a little Monk.  This CD is unusual in that only two tracks are Monk compositions...

I had a great thing happen to me this evening.  My dad (69) and one of his younger friends (mid 50's) dropped by while I was tooling around in my listening area.  My dad's friend says "wow you have a lot of vinyl".  I say "yep, we are listening to a record now".  He's floored.  He says he's heard that you have to have a good stereo to "hear" the music.  I pointed at the ZKIT1's but he had no point of reference to recognize what they were.  I didn't even get into the synergy I find between the DECWARE amplification and the AN drivers I listen to currently.  He stares at things for a while and says, I never knew you could hear that sort of detail in the music.  I've loved vinyl since my pops let me play his records, I've loved DECWARE since I found the site and built the ZKIT1 (then another), and I really think the whole thing came together with some quality drivers.  When time and funds permit, I'll be covering new ground with one of Steve's Torii's and a pair of Radial speakers.  I know I will get to experience this before my days run short Smiley    
For the knowing the record was David Grisman Quintet and it was a pleasure.

Been listening to some Mofi Fleetwood Mac S/T and  a nice Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - Hard Promises  MCA half speed mastered lp.    My Torii MkIII has been on for 3 straight days.  It's sounding mighty sweet tonight.  Wife and kids are out of town so I've been been non stop listening to music when home. Higher than normal volume.. Cool
