Ben Webster "See You at the Fair" Impulse/GRP cd



Expanded from the original album, and that's a good thing.

Webster was something else.

Half of this one last night and the second half this morning. My listening companion Fiona the miniature dachshund does NOT like this one; the everywhere, all at once drumming from the two drummers and the freaky deaky guitar bits just don't let her relax. But I like it.

Charles Mingus "Tijuana Moods" Classic Records gold cd





My favorite sounding version of this awesome album. This one and "East Coasting" battle in my mind as the favorite Mingus album.

I had a weird dream last night in which I was telling my (late) first wife that I love stereo equipment but it's because I love music.

That's really true.

I watched part of the DVD until Lucy came home early and interrupted me. I'm listening again to the cd that is in this package, a live appearance at the Penthouse in Seattle. It's excellent!

Bass – Eddie Gomez
Drums – Joe Cocuzzo
Guitar – Gabor Szabo
Tenor Saxophone, Flute – Sadao Watanabe
Vibraphone – Gary McFarland
CD recorded June 24 & July 1, 1965, at The Penthouse, Seattle, WA.

This was priced very nicely via discogs. There's an LP that contains some of the Penthouse material but the cd here has a more complete presentation.

Got some down time and decided to listen to some Jerry Mulligan.  I like this CD because some songs are taken from the LP and others from a CD masters, so you get to hear the quality difference in the recordings.  So far…the LP tracks are the favorites.    Currently streaming in Roon.

This one is a phenomenal pairing between these two great players.  I like this one so much….I may have to follow in Lon’s footsteps and buy this as a Japanese import.  Currently streaming in Roon  through Qobuz as a FLAC 44.1 kHz 16 bit file.

This was still in the player from yesterday afternoon and it sounds so good that I started my day off with it today.

It has been some time since I reached into Billie's Verve years. . .and I'm always intrigued by the sidemen's contributions and that mature expression Billie delivers.

Santana "Caravan Serai" Sony Quad/Stereo SACD

So glad I have been ordering this series of releases of Santana and Miles Davis in the 7" SACD series. Excellent sound and packaging.

I got some of these Mad Scientist Audio Nano Black Discus things in the mail and put this on to judge whether they make an effect.

I believe they do, a subtle improvement. Cool. Seem to lower the noise floor a bit as designed.

Miles Davis "Kind of Blue" 20 bit LP facsimile cd from Sony Japan.

Drummer Pete La Roca's only leader date for Blue Note, "Basra" (here the Japan cd UCCU-8110)


The quartet does an amazing job here but Joe Henderson seems inspired and is a real standout.

It took some prodding but my JATP Mosaic set arrived last night right after my wife came home and I shut off the system.

Playing the first disc right now. Sound is really good. No loudness war mastering here--I had to increase the gain in my system a lot. Lester is playing and all is right in my world.

Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis with Red Garland and Shirley Scott "Gentle Jaws" Prestige OJC cd

Just what I needed after some JATP jams!



Quartet sessions with either Red or Shirley on piano, from two LPs and one track from a compilation.

Pulled a few Lockjaw cds from the shelves. . .he has a unique sound and technique that I sometimes crave in batches of discs.

Ella Fitzgerald "Sunshine of Your Love" Verve cd

Although this whole disc shows Ella really "on" and sounding great. . . the title track is the show stopper!

Sound isn't fantastic. This originated as an MPS and there are MPS cds out there. . . but they don't always sound that good so I went with the Verve. May try the MPS one day.

Lon, I totally agree with that last point! In fact, I only know what I know about Montrose because of your posting.

I also want to commend you for the extra effort you have put forth to help some of us "unwashed" find some of this incredible music in the real world market place.

I know you are doing some of this further effort at my previous request.

I also want to offer an apology for the affect that my earlier request to you had reminding you of what a dark place you have found yourself living through.
I want to be one who thanks you for helping us find some of this incredible media you have found on your own.
Many thanks!

I got this, yesterday. It's short and his singing is flatter than usual, but the guitar work, with Jimi just trying out stuff to see if he can use it, is worth all that.
I would not call it a great album, because frankly it is not, but it is a part of the lesson and another peak at history.
I am not a "Completist" by any mean, but I do enjoy much of this release.

No need to apologize, I was just reacting to something that seemed unnecessary to me because I'm not posting to recommend to others etc. And I was unconvinced that my choices and taste were mirrored by many at all here. I post these listening pieces here because for me it's all about music, not just the equipment which I tinker with because it gets me closer to the music, and not just great music that shows off how great the components are, but all kinds of recordings.

And I have not been 100 percent and won't be for a while, but that's just my issue, shouldn't be influencing my responses here or aired here.

Yeah, that Hendrix concert was one of the better ones captured by the company and one of the better ones performed that year. I have probably 100 plus Jimi bootlegs, I'm most interested in his studio work to be honest and hope they put out the Electric Ladyland studio box set they almost did last year. We'll see. Jimi was a real inspiration for me, he drew me into actively listening in a way that I never had before. I can still remember when "All Along the Watchtower" came out as a single and I was listening to it anywhere and everywhere I could.

It's amazing what a tube in the ZROCK2 can do. I have a "Sunbeam" branded made in Holland 12AU7 in there now that is just perfect for what I have been playing today when the gain structure is dialed in. It's like a comforting mug of dark hot chocolate.

Right now, pulled from the shelves
Keith Jarrett
Charlie Haden
Paul Motian

"Hamburg '72" ECM cd





I don't believe I have heard this since it was first released--and it sat in the can a long time til 2014. Very nice recording and an excellent performance.

Just kind of loving some early Santana right now.
Percussion is amazing on these drivers.

Going through his first three albums, then back to the first one. Not sure where to stop or if I might yet.
Cool
