Great start after a 12 day sabbatical. Nice to get out in the world again after vaccinations!

Expansive.

I highly recommend any of the 2L The Nordic Sound label offerings for your listening pleasure:

http://www.2l.no/

They have a few playlists on Qubuz that just floor me. Give one a try.

Duke Ellington "Piano in the Background" from the second Complete Columbia Albums" box set. Interesting re-thinkings of classic Ellingtonia, the Orchestra and the "Piano Player" having fun in tht classic studio with its killer sound.

On to one of my favorite Ellington sets, Volume 2 of "Duke Ellington 1947-1952" from CBS France. These years were a cornucopia of Ellington fun and finesse.

David Sanchez "The Departure"



Listening to the system with a new HDMI cable between my transport and DAC, a Pink Faun. It always amazes me how much of a difference a cable makes in this application. This is the most expensive one that I have ever tried, even used, and it combines what I like of the previous two favorites . . . quite happy with the results after about 65 hours of use.

A cdr I made of some rare sessions from the "Blue Note--the SP Days--1939 to 1952" box set from Japan. I think I'm going to have break out the box set and listen to it again soon.

These sessions are Sammy Benskin Trio, Jimmy Shirley, Pig Meat Markham, Clyde Berhardt and his Kansas City Buddies, Vic Dickenson Quartet

I still remember the first time I heard Sonny Rollins. I had loaned an album from the local library because of the picture of the sax on the front and had no idea what to expect. My mind was blown:  

This album is in great condition and still is just bangin'. Totally recommend it.

I think I first paid attention to Sonny when listening to a bootleg of his playing with the Miles Davis group in the mid-fifties. Amazing sound. Over the years I've come to just be overwhelmed by his melodic mastery and his bold performances. His is a unique and powerful artistry.

Right now
Dave Douglas "Brazen Heart--Live at the Jazz Standard 2015" disc 3



Very interesting music. Encompassing many modern styles with a touch of past styles as well. Good live sound.

It's odd. I used to avoid this one so that it wouldn't become "too familiar." That was probably good because now I find so much to love in this recording!

I lost a good friend this past Sunday. He loved Rush. Dialed at 3 o’clock producing 100db peaks is the only way to listen to this powerful disk! ZKIT1 and Crystals do not disappoint faithfully rendering the energy of rock n’ roll without ear bleed. Miss you Ed Cry

Got in from the UK one of the new "Reference" belts from Rega and have to say that it is an improvement over the "White" belt that was Rega's top of the line before, and it's half the price too. Played "Great Expectations" from this:

Miles Davis "Big Fun"

Sounded subtly tighter and more detailed.

Joe Henderson not surprisingly plays very spiritedly on this session.

I spend quite a lot of listening time now on things posted to this thread - really enjoying it, thanks to everyone participating. Ellington's Far East Suite is not something I have listened to seriously before, and it was pretty rewarding, for example. I'm expanding my listening, and that's so much fun.

We can go back and forth on Sinatra and his style, but this album captures him doing what I'd consider real jazz... just great.

Glad you enjoyed the Ellington! I'm not a Sinatra fan. . . I can acknowledge his huge influence, even the benefactor he's been to African American musicians, but I just don't enjoy his singing and I hate the whole Rat Pack shtick. Just me!

Right now
I'm really enjoying revisiting the David Sanchez Columbia releases. This is another one with great work by Miguel Zenon included, and I love the way that Sanchez includes Latin feel to the pieces without overwhelming a jazz swing. This one is also well-recorded.

David Sanchez "Melaza"

This one grows on me. I have the new cd reissue from Real Gone Music as well, which may sound a bit better.

Yusef Lateef, "Angel Eyes" Savoy 2 LP set. LP 1.

Great music, one marathon session that yielded two LPs. Disc 2 is "The Dreamer"


Featuring the not-recorded-enough Terry Pollard on piano. Yusef sounds gorgeous on oud, flute and tenor sax here. (Not surprising).
