Antonio Carlos Jobim "Songbook Instrumentals" 2 cd set

I've been looking for a reasonably priced copy of this for some time (I have a CDR copy) and finally did at Dusty Groove. Great set for Jobim fans.

Jackie & Roy "Spring Can Really Hang You up the Most" Black Lion cd

I am really enjoying revisiting Jackie & Roy. This one is notable as it has Barney Kessel on board for a few.

Some quiet music as the rest of the house sleeps.

"The Complete Master Jazz Piano Series" Mosaic Records, cd III.



I like this set and this is perhaps my favorite disc, featuring Jay McShann, Teddy Wilson and Cliff Smalls.

Followed by

Keith Jarrett "The Bordeaux Concert" ECM

This seems to be one of the better recordings I own.
I mean, I would listen to most attempt Paganini anyway for a while, but this one works well.

Sad to think that most everyone who made this album are dead.
Not dead today. It's spinning!

Sorry for the shit pic. Just tried to phone capture with sunlight coming in the window.

Listening to something very familiar as I made a change to the DAC--added a specially designed plug for the USB input that has removed another veil of noise. It's amazing how "noise"--so much more in our environment than decades ago--is something that when incrementally removed creates sonic improvment. And it seems there is always more noise to be eliminated.

Belief of fully understanding the thoughts behind the album name (after 100 hours burn-in of the new speaker wire), the single best word to describe the take away is presence.

Lon, how coincidental! Listening to Dragonfly it was noticed that the bass had a slight flabby sound. Wondering, the thought came that the holes in the back of the speakers after removal of the terminals are still open. I got up and plugged the four holes with bolts and washers. Can't say it improved things but surely did not hurt. Could be that the wires just need more burn-in time.

Seems there is always an improvement waiting to be discovered. . . .

On to

Joe Lovano / Greg Osby "Friendly Fire" Blue Note cd

Haven't played this one in a few years, and whenever I revisit something after that long I notice how much better it sounds because the system sounds so good now.

What a band. I forgot how good Cameron Brown can be on bass, and Jason Moran and Idris Muhammed bring a lot.

Monday Michiru "Nexus"



This woman has so much going for her. Her lyrics are straight-forward yet have a wide scope of adult experience and have insight and positive statements.

And her music composition and synthesis and fusion is organized and interesting even when there's more "house" and other elements I'm not crazy about there's plenty to listen for and enjoy. She's a capable arranger and band-leader and hires intelligently. Her voice is a thread that weaves so much together.

This is one of her mature, reflective, yet joyful releases. Sound is quite good.

I'm a big Randy Weston fan and have decided to begin revisiting his earliest recordings which are great listens.

Recorded in New York City on November 21 and November 22, 1956

Randy Weston - piano
Ray Copeland - trumpet
Cecil Payne - alto saxophone, baritone saxophone
Ahmed Abdul-Malik - bass
Wilbert Hogan or Willie Jones - drums

Now on to a chill pill for my mood, the final disc in this great Mosaic box set.

“The Complete Peggy Lee & June Christy Capitol Transcription Sessions” Mosaic Records disc V




More Peggy Lee sides with the excellent guitar styling of her then husband Dave Barbour. Great singing and playing and great mono sound, both in the original recording and the mastering for cd.

Wow. I forgot how thrilling the duet between Ella (scat) and Booty Wood (on trombone) was on this Pablo cd! I find the cd sounds best with phase in the "OUT" position on my DAC.

Now on to

I tend to despise or at least barely tolerate scatting, but I think I would listen to Ella for any reason at all.
Grin

I've spun some Boston today and moving toward some more jazzy feel for the moment. Oh, BTW, there is nothing down low on these early Boston recordings, except for some rare keyboard accents. I can hear them with these new drivers, but the accents do not shake the floor as intended.

"Filles de Kilimanjaro" is going to be next after a bit of Man Work to help out with decorating for the season.

Women come up with these magnificient ideas and try often to be self sufficient, but once the cursing of hammers and gluey things begins, I gently step in and analyze the entire issue. It is usually something too heavy hung by something too small.

Her: "I don't want a hole there!"   Me: "Do you want this four pound wreath that you have added twelve pounds of beauty to to stick to the wall? You know I can fix holes."   Her: "I thought it would just hang there."   Me: "And it will. Let me show you how this can work."  Me: Gets out anchors, awl, measuring tape, big screws, drill, level and probably even more tools. It will be there for years if need be.
Then, when the enthusiasm to "de-endecorate" exceeds the original enthusiasm to decorate, I can fix the hole.
Smiley

But, I have also had to work hard to be the Hero Of The Day in the past just getting through the current quantity of quality expected.

More MIles Davis in my stack for tonight.

Just listened to a disc from David Bowie's "Conversation Piece" to prepare myself for a spin this week through the new David Bowie archival release "Divine Sympathy" that arrived yesterday.

The system sounds amazing today. I have to keep telling myself "don't change a thing."

Jose James "Yesterday I had the Blues: the Music of Billie Holiday" Blue Note Japan SHM-CD (2022 reissue)

This is one of those rare releases that I didn't think I would fall in love with when it was first released but I did and I still think it's both a great slab of music and a great recording.

This is how you make a tribute album.
