Hey Lon,

My heart goes out to you.

I live in Washington where as of today there have been 30 deaths mostly from a single extended care facility..  I feel so sorry for the families.  A lot of these were people that had surgeries and couldn't be cared for at home but no other facility would take them.  They are now in lock down and family members have to look thru the outside windows just to see them.

My wife is a teacher and the state wants all the school districts to close for six weeks.  I just don't think washing your hands is going to be enough but be glad your dad's facility is taking precautions.

Be safe and hope everyone who visits has learned something from these families pain.

Yes Dana, it's very hard right now for many. As you say, if these measures keep our elderly loved ones safer they're worth the hassle. My heart goes out to anyone who is ill with this virus or has family ill.

Back to this one. I wish I had encountered this when released in '85. Has that 'eighties production sound but I'm not holding that against it. Really like the joyous mood of this samba-jazz joint.

Tania Maria 'Made in New York' Mahattan Records cd.

Lon, I'll listen to that one next.  Up too early but so far have listened to...

Iceland Symphony Orchestra
Cornelius Meister, conductor
Arngunnur Árnadóttir, clarinet

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Clarinet Concerto in A major, K.622



Edward Gardner conducting the Royal Academy of Music Symphony Orchestra for George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue with soloist Adrian Brendle.

Somewhere in there I listened to this tune...

Played two albums from the new Hank Mobley Mosaic Records cd set, I've always enjoyed these two.

Hank Mobley "Dippin'"


Hank Mobley "Hi Voltage"


And then the expanded cd version of Jerry Garcia "Run for the Roses." I neglect this one too much, it's an interesting album. I wanted to evaluate the bass response of my current tube complements and John Kahn's bass sound is a good measurement tool for me.

Glad you enjoyed them Dana. I was not familiar with them either. It was one of those CD's that caught my interest when browsing at Goodwill, mainly the title.

I'm going to absorb this set slowly. I'm only on the first show, second disc.

Kudos to the Plangent Process and mastering.

Yesterday I had "vibes." I started my listening to this cd by Betty Roche "Take the A Train" on Solid Records/Bethlehem originally. It has Eddie Costa on vibes which is an automatic reason to buy any album. Wink And I moved from there to Gary Burton's "New Vibes in Town" on Sony Japan cd, and then moved on to Jay Hoggard's "Fountain" on Muse cd.

Had to revisit Betty today though. . .

The last two days I've been listening to SACDs I bought from Acoustic Sound's sale of Analogue Productions.

Listened to these Blue Note titles:

Joe Henderson "Page One"
Big John Patton "Along Came John"
Jackie McLean "Cappucin Swing" (I've never heard a better digital version of this title)
Sonny Rollins "Vol. 2"

And these Verve titles:

Johnny Hodges "With Billy Strayhorn and Orchestra"
West Montgomery with the Wynton Kelly Trio "Smoking' at the Half Note"
Duke Ellington & Johnny Hodges "Back to Back"
Duke Ellington & Johnny Hodges "Side by Side"

These Verve titles sound so f'in good that it sent me on a side trip of messing around with isolation to further refine the system sound. Other than Classic Records gold cds these are among the best mastered jazz discs I've ever heard.

Now moving to one of the two RCA Living Stereo titles I bought:



Jean Morel/Paris Conservatory Orchestra "Albeniz: Iberia/Ravel: Rapodie Espagnole" disc 1

(Iberia is sounding fantastic.

Something completely different but happily so.

Victor Assis Brasil, "Esperanto/Toca Antonio Carlos Jobim." Two very interesting albums from '70.

"The Dixie Sound of Jack Teagarden" Roulette stereo LP. I like this so much that I'd like to have a mono copy. My stereo is a little noisy but once the music kicks in who cares!

Impressive sound quality on this recording streamed at 16/44 and upsampled to DSD.
Great you-are-there music... the drum parts are so dynamic, just amazing.  I have no doubt that the CD would sound equally good on my Denon DCD-3520 CD player which would be true for pretty much any of the 16 bit streamed recordings.

I had this on chrome cassette tape in 1977. I played it on my Pioneer Super Tuner mounted in the dash of my 70 Monte Carlo. I had a 50 watt amplifier into a pair of rather amazing Becker 6X9's in the rear deck. The angle of the rear window horn loaded it. The huge trunk gave bass response to 20 Hz.

Track two experienced in that car at 16 years old was so memorable ... it's wonderful to hear it again sounding so close to the way it did back then. This one is 24/192 which is partly why it has that feel of tape.

Kind of pictured you as a Monte Carlo guy. I was pulled around in an Olds Tornado of the same vintage. Just stock audio in the Olds. I can't remember if it was a cassette or 8 track but it was a smooth cool green ride Cool
