That is Nina's first, a trio album. It's been reissued on cd and lp three or four times in the last three decades. The most recent on lp and cd is by Verse/Bethlehem--I have the cd and it sounds awesome compared to a very early US cd and an import "gray market" one.

I don't know which version Dave is listening to. . . This is one that has all 15 tracks, though I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for the best sound. It's not from the master tapes, it's a sort of "gray label" release.

http://www.amazon.com/Nina-Simone/dp/B0001P1HYC/ref=sr_1_4_title_1_aud?s=music&i...

This is the latest, from the master tapes, just the 11 tracks on the original lp:

I need to up my game to keep up with you guys.  

For reference, I was listening to the latest 11 track version from the master tapes.  Very nice set.  Sound quality is ok.  I haven't heard the earlier releases for comparison, but trust Lon's assessment.

Lon, with this last De Franco CD I ordered, I now have 6 with Sonny Clark on Piano.  I think I'm only missing 2 or 3 tracks from the  OOP Mosaic Box that were originally on Compilations with other Musicians.  For those interested all 6 were purchased at Dusty Groove over 4 different orders.  They go in and out of stock frequently but if they are out of stock and in your watch list, they notify you when they're back in stock.  All this music with De Franco and Clark together is great...the few tracks with organ being my least liked.  Mark.

PS...this now...

Yeah, I'm a big DeFranco fan, like those that are without Sonny Clark as well. The man can play! (I bet he still can).

This sounds great.



Hey, I'm taking another hiatus from posting. I'm having a rough time with my difficult life and I need to stop cradling my laptop like it's a link to something wonderful and deal with my life, maybe take my writing in another direction from posting into something different. The hot topics here are tape decks and the ZMA, directions I'm not moving towards, and I should spend my time elsewhere. I'll respond to PMs and direct questions and can be reached at lonjazz@yahoo.com Have a great week!

Lon,  I hope you're back soon.  I don't get too involved in the technical aspects of this website except to ask for advice and recommendations.  I am primarily interested in enjoying the Music and discovering new or new to me old recordings as well as enjoying the thousands I already own.  The equipment, although important, is just a means to this end and once I get to a place where I'm happy with the sound, I'll stop tinkering.  My HR-1's are in the Cutting Room now...they will be the last major purchase for a while aside from a little tube rolling in the Taboo and CSP3...maybe,  the sound IS great with the stock tubes.  I'm finished tube rolling in the Torii and ZP3 for now.

I suffered a temporary bump in the road to Musical Nirvana and am sending my Torii MK IV back to the Mother Ship to be rejuvenated but luckily I have the Taboo and haven't missed a minute of music.  I've been listening with headphones only since Thursday but could hook up my speakers to the Taboo. By the time the Torii returns, I should also be close to getting the HR-1s into my Listening Cave. Things will be notched up to a new level...at least that's my assumption.

Lon,  maybe you could continue posting on this tread and leave the others to their own devices.  After all, it's all about the Music and sharing here, regardless what source we use to get the tunes to our Amps.  Anyway,  I'll miss your input as will many others...I'm sure.  I hope your Hiatus will be brief.  I might look up the websites you gave me and see what you're up to over there. Your Friend, Mark.

Hey Mark, you're right, this thread is different, but my main hope is to pull myself away from the internet itself for a few weeks or a month and create a new daily rythmn for myself. We'll see, I hope it happens, I need some change in my life, giving so much of my life over to my parents, missing my lover and my friends in Texas, it is all too much for me and hiding away in a laptop is NOT the answer. Take care, I'll be back in time.

Hope your Torii comes back soon, and I know you are going to love the hR-1s! I know how expensive they are, but they're a lifetime speaker.

OK, it's time to post some music...

I'm listening to this on spotify but have tried something new that sounds incredible.  I had long ago bought a cord that goes from the inputs of my amp to the "headphone out" jack of my laptop.  Since I now have my Taboo in the den paired with my second Jolida 100 CD player...I thought what the heck, I might be able to improve on the sound I get with ear buds straight to the laptop.  I found that the old lucid mode on, is best with this setup and I went into the equalizer of the laptop and used the section called beats audio rather than the much more complicated standard 9 band equalizer.  I upped the Bass two notches and something called "Space" two notches and the sound is amazing.  Now it's no sacrifice to sample new music on Spotify...I haven't tried it with you tube.  I'm using Audeze LCD 2.2 Cans with Toxic cables' "Silver Widows" and, of course, my Taboo MK III. Mark.

This one now. I don't own this one...well, at least I don't remember if I do.  I bought a lot of CDs on the Criss Cross Label in the distant past and haven't listened to them all.  Back then I considered them similar to the Blue Note Label of the 50's and 60's...I've never been disappointed by any of their releases of new or established Musicians.

I did a little experiment.  I found a CD that I own and is also on spotify.  Then I matched the volume from each source as best I could. Doing a/b testing I could just barely tell that my Jolida 100 was more resolving and clear.  But if I came back an hour later and you played one or the other...I don't think I could tell you which was playing.  I used Dave Brubeck's album "Time Further Out".

This one that Lon played recently...sampled from spotify.  I can't get over how good the sound is from my laptop. When I ordered it from HP, I think I upgraded the sound card and graphics. Still, this is amazingly good.  Mark.

This is a 2 CD compilation by Fresh Sound of Slide Hampton's Atlantic albums..."Sister Salvation" and "Somethin' Sanctified" plus some live tracks of his octet at Birdland.  This is circa 1960.  After the first two tracks. it's gone on my wish list at amazon...very nice. On spotify, I tried the single album "Sister Salvation" but the recording they had sucked. This one, also there, is much better.  It's doubtful that the spotify copy was the one Lon has from Japan, which I would assume sounds good. Mark.

Back in the Den with spotify hooked up..Just dropped my Torii off at the UPS Store earlier...it should arrive Wednesday.

Lon spun this one 2 or 3 weeks ago.  It's rather nice...I should add that I like the tunes done with acoustic instruments much more than some with electronics...this should surprise no one.  Mark.

This  live Ella next.  I don't think I have this one...looks good except for a Beatles cover...oh well, it was 1965.  Ella's voice and Tommy Flanagan's piano work are top notch.  Mark.

PS...Dave, could you suggest a few of your favorite albums recently other than Jazz and Classic Rock...you've spun some in the past I've never heard of...

Complete change in direction...

Instrumental post-rock music from the Texas band Explosions in the Sky...these guys are awesome...love the builds and break downs...

This album I am spinning is "take care, take care, take care".  I also highly recommend 'The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place".

Mark...apologies...I missed your post/request from yesterday.  Below is a list of albums to check out:

The National: Boxer (one of my favorite bands.  if you haven't heard this album it's amazing.  Their latest album, 'Trouble Will Find Me' is excellent and Alligator is also a must listen IMHO)

Kurt Vile: Wakin' on a Pretty Daze (I can get lost in these dreamy, drawn out songs.  I also plan to pick up the new War on Drugs album "Lost in the Dream", which has a similar feel)

Panda Bear: Person Pitch (sit back and enjoy the electronic psychedelic ride complete with layers and layers of loops drenched in reverb.  I want to describe it as a modern day Pet Sounds of sorts, but that is going too far. Sounds like you are rocking headphones these days and this would be a good spin.  I would also check out the band The XX.  Great headphone music.)

Volcano Choir: Repave (One of Justin Vernon's (Bon Iver) side projects. Volcano Choir tends to be a little more 'out there' vs Bon Iver (which you should also check out), but this one is more accessible (and better overall) than their previous effort 'Unmap')

San Fermin: San Fermin (chamber pop.  the male vocalist reminds of Matt Berninger from The National, which is why I was initially drawn to this disc. Lots of horns.  Not necessary a favorite, but it has been in the rotation lately)

Beirut: The Rip Tide (love this album.  i can spin it and spin it and spin it...and it never gets old.  just writing that made me what to give it a spin...

Cheers and happy listening...

Thanks Dave,  I haven't heard of any of those artists/albums.  Now that I can listen to Spotify in "High Fidelity", I plan on exploring more new music although I'll always come back to Jazz...my Fav.  In about an hour I'll sample some of your recommendations. Thanks again,  Mark.

Dave,  I'm listening to this one...cool.  His vocals remind me of Lou Reed/Velvet Underground.  Mark.

I have this CD but am listening to it on Spotify.  Just Jeff Buckley's voice and his guitar...Fascinating.  Mark.

American Analog Set 'Set Free'...

I haven't listened to this one in a while.  I really enjoy this band.  Very chill indie rock.  There is a subtle, repetitive beauty that draws me in and takes me on a journey.

Lambchop: Mr. M

Excellent album...it took quite a few listens for me to get there...nothing really seemed to catch my attention at first, but for some reason I kept coming back...

Destroyer: Kaputt

The name is not fitting...this album is great for a late night listen...there are some atmospheric elements that really make the soundstage interesting...enjoy!

Great guitarist and songwriter/poet...he is obviously channeling and interpreting Bob Dylan...

Dave, some seriously great albums!

I need to start posting what I actually listen to, but I tend to shut off the laptop and just listen, so I forget by the time the session is done.

LR...I have been getting into the routine of posting pre-listening and then adding comments (if I remember) post-listening or during a break.

Also...I wanted to let you know that I haven't forgotten about dates for the mini-Decfest.  I am waiting for a buddy to let me know if he is in and when he is available in May.  

Yes it would be great to know what you are listening to...

Cheers and happy listening!
