This new reissue of Barney Wilen's "French. Ballads" sounds fantastic. I have the cd, it's also available on LP.

Lon….I tried all 3 of my streaming services, and the Barney Wilen French Ballads is not available.  I may have to make a purchase…I’ve really been enjoying his work.  I’m still waiting for my back order Japanese import of Jazz Sur Siene.  

In the interim I am a enjoying some Ike Quebec.

I am a disc person, don't do any streaming. It's possible that it may come out on one of the services in time, this was only issued Friday.

I love that Ike Quebec.

Peter Takacs "Complete Beethoven Piano Sonatas" SACD disc 5



Nice and quiet as the rest of the house sleeps. . .

It's so wonderful to have the main system up and running again and with my new PS Audio PerfectWave SACD transport as well.

Lon,

I was always a physical media guy growing up… Tape, vinyl, CDs, video laser disk, and DVD’s.  I always enjoyed the album art cover and the leaflet documentation. I got into streaming services as a way to explore music while keeping the cost down.  The funny thing is that I have found myself lately getting back into physical media as I’ve gotten older.  

While my house is under construction I’m at my parents so my vinyl rig and CD player are in storage.  Soon enough I’ll be able to get back into it again.

I'm glad you are able to listen in the interim. I have about 1/3 of my collection in storage and the rest with me. I often go and exchange a box or two. . .the storage unit is on the way to my Dad's and I visit him twice a week usually. . . on my way today with a box to move into storage and a few to remove.

While I'm not big on listening to streaming anything because no one seems to play my strange mixture of music, this morning I've been listening to JB Radio 2.

Well so far it has played some of my likes and some that I don't care for while sounding just wonderful.

It is for sure the right price, free, and according to my DAC is 16/44 FLAC.

Today is the first day I really get to sit down and listen to my main system via speakers in five weeks, and also the first time I get to listen to my new transport via the speakers.

Great sounds and a general relaxing are occurring.

I started off with Yana Purim, "Harvest Time." I love her older sister Flora Purim and there is definitely a family resemblance in the sound of her voice and phrasing. But. . . her English singing is not that great. Her Portuguese is better. . . but Flora is rightfully the one who became an international "name."



So I needed to listen to Flora Purim after this and decided to spin the LP of "Stories to Tell". . . ah, an old favorite since it was first released lo these many years ago.



Then as the Rega was spinning I listened to record 1 of Miles Davis "Big Fun" 2 LP set. Music that is in my mental musical DNA. And sounding very very good today.



Then I thought I would retry a recent release that I think has great music but not so great sound, Joe Chambers "Samba de Maracatu"



The sound is a bit better with my new transport and settings but. . .

And right now I am spinning disc 7 of Lee Morgan "Complete Live at the Lighthouse" cd set. One of my favorite releases of the year.

This does far more for me than the Archies or Air Supply. Wink Truly a joyous and entertaining release that I have always enjoyed. Two masterful singers having fun together in San Francisco.

"The Carmen McRae/Betty Carter Duets" OJC cd.

Miles Davis "Bitches Brew" Columbia 2 LP set, sides 3 and 4.

I've had this LP set since '73 I think. Music that I almost don't have to spin to "hear," but enjoy hearing it every time.



Followed by Bob Dylan "Springtime in New York" 5 cd set, disc 5

Currently streaming this on Qobuz in CD quality.  This was a really good album to listen to.  The arrangements flowed nicely and it was smooth.  I’m actually listening to it a second time at work at 3 AM… And it’s just relaxing.

Jay Leonhardt/Gary Burton "Play the Music of Duke Elllington"

I missed this one when it came out and I'm making up for it now. Quite a nice session in good sound. Nice to have this instrumentation and a little bit of interpretive  novelty to these excellent "tunes."

So I decided to try Jazz again.



Nope, still squawking random noises.

I must not be educated enough to enjoy it.

Different strokes' for different folks.

I guess it's not for everyone. My wife doesn't like any but the mellowest of jazz. (She likes "Kind of Blue" though for the most part when she hears it).

I'm not a singer-songwriter or Warren Zevon fan. As you say, different strokes.

Right now
My wife slept late and I was able to listen at almost just the right volume to Angela Hewlitt playing Beethoven sonatas while reading the excellent liner notes to the new Hasaan Ibn Ali solo piano 2 cd set. A really nice hour.

Then I snuck in half of this great Sunday morning listening before I had to rejoin the family:

Barney Wilen, "French Ballads" 2021 cd.

Donnie,

I've had this same conversation on this forum and while I'm able to enjoy more of it now,I'm right there with you... but I keep trying.
Not sure this is considered jazz in its truest form but it is something I can actually listen to and enjoy.  Maybe because it has a structure I can relate to?

Porgy and Bess
Miles Davis
Release year1958




Something else same era but one of my favorites.

Dinah Washington
Dinah '62
Release Date 1962

This new reissue of this one has been stuck in my player . . . I seem to need the beauty and sophistication it offers . . . every day.

Barney Wilen "French Ballads". . . .

The alternates here are very good.

Work got REALLY busy, but have time to breathe today. No issues with listening, just haven't been posting.

Breaking that losing streak Smiley with this recording. Modern, well recorded, and Larnell is at the top of his game.

Can't go wrong with this pairing. Sound could be a bit better but no real complaints. Swing!

Cal Tjader "Monterey Concerts" OJC cd.



Trying out a pair of Synergistic Research Orange fuses in my Monoblocks, in place of Audio Magic Super fuses. So far I like these a bit better--the high frequency is a bit more controlled.

These would have been exciting performances to experience live at the Festivals!

I hadn't heard much of Chad Lefkowitz-Brown's work until I stumbled over this record - I kind of like it... nice sound, interesting lines, a little too much in his head at times, but I still dug it.
