Yes. Beethoven is fascinating--I used to listen with my Dad a lot. Liszt did piano transcriptions of all nine symphonies that we both listened to over and over.

From the shelves

Re-visiting disc 1 of this 2 cd set. Dusty Groove had it very cheap so I bought another copy for my best friend, avant-garde trumpeter Dave Lackzo who likes Brazilian music as much as I do.

Moacir Santos "Oro Negro"

Santos was a great arranger and he just has his own way of applying texture that I admire.

I listened to "Oro Negro" again--it was really sounding great. Adventure Music is a label to trust for great sounding releases.

Now on to
"The Complete CBS Studio Recordings of Woody Shaw" disc 1

MIles Davis "Jazz at the Plaza" Sony lp facsimile 20bit SBM cd.

I have several versions of this, and decided to play this one today. . . though this is not the best recording, with wonky stereo artifacts, the music is outstanding. Cannonball plays two awesome solos here.

From the shelves.

After planting trees all afternoon….finally getting a chance to sit down and relax to some Stan Getz.  Currently streaming in Roon in CD quality.  I can listen to almost anything from this saxophonist.

Back to music for me, too.
I find myself playing another European issue, it seems.

All Miles, The Prestige Albums, but this is not the widely lauded Box Set

Going with "Bags Groove" from this collection to warm things up.

Decided to switch gears and go with some Spanish guitar music.  One of the most notable is Paco de Lucia and a favorite.  Streaming Cancio’n Andaluza in Roon in CD quality.

Well, it basically is the earlier box set (identical sonically I am told) just in new budget packaging and in LP sequences.

Such timeless music. And "Bag's Groove" is perhaps one I reach for more often than others.

They do sound really good.
Concord and Italy, EAN number, etc. An odd mixed bag, in some ways. The "Steamin,"  "Walkin,"  and  "Collector's Items" discs all have ''Manufactured in London'' on the CDs and yet everything else is identical to the rest.

I'll probably get through the entire collection before I move to the next.
I'm just in a Miles groove, right now.

Moving along, a newer disc of old music collections.

I have a prideful lot of his LPs and often CDs don't measure up well, but this from '99, is not bad at all.

Was in the mood for some piano and decided to listen to some Red Garland.  Nice background music while I chill out.  He’s got some nice albums…and this one doesn’t disappoint.  Streaming in Roon as a Qobuz Flac file at 192/24 bit.

Yes, that's a good one--it was his very first session as a leader, recorded while he was still with the Miles Davis Quintet.

Thanks to Lon….I’ve been listening to more Lester Young these days.  Just added this one to the catalog….and it’s damn good.  The wife really enjoys this album as do I.

Good one, Dominick!

Lon has inspired me a few times as well. I probably do not give him enough credit for the direction much of my collection has taken.


I pulled out all the Tina Turner I can find, in honor.

Lester Young was such a fascinating person. He was a true innovator and "influencer" in jazz, he came from a musical family and his brother was an excellent drummer, and his band leader father also taught Ben Webster, another unique stylist of the tenor saxophone. Lester was also a unique person. He is credited with introducing some popular slang into the world.

I think I have over 90 percent of the recordings that Lester Young has made. I was pretty obsessively collecting his work in the 'nineties.

Did not meant to sound like a wagon jumper, but my wife loved Tina so much, I had to play all I had and much of what I could find online.

My wife was a gymnast, but maybe a little "jealous" of a dancer's legs. As with many women. She'd be the first to admit, btw. Just an aside.
Grin

Continuing on with these newly acquired collections.
Some Jazz Masters for a bit. So many of these.

Been exploring the albums of Bill Evans Trio and Art Blakey lately.  Last week there was one night last week the entire room fell away and I swear I could have been sitting in front of Bill Evans and team.  I dared not move or even breath or it would all crumble away.  I think it was Waltz for Debby, but can't be sure.  Many of these are first time listens for me.

The local Jazz festival is coming up the end of June so I have been listening to some of the performers as well.  Looking forward to Snarky Puppy, but really enjoying the sounds of Angelique Kidjo.

Image is of recently liked albums.  

I had previously liked a Moanin' mono release... this was the stereo.  Both great, but so different.  I love the dynamics of the mono, but crave the immersion of the stereo.  Fun stuff.

The followup to "Jobim Jazz" and just as great, perhaps a bit more so as the songs are a bit less "famous." Great sound as usual for Adventure Music.

Hot off the Press!!  Just received Aerosmith’s Greatest Hits on Vinyl and had to play it.  This also signifies my first playback after hooking my the Zen Sister amps in a mono configuration.  

All  can say is that I was floating on cloud nine.   The extra volume I get from the mono setup works exceptionally well with my vinyl rig.  I was able to really push them to the point where it was beyond normal listening levels and I was not past 3 o’clock on the volume dials.   Still need to send the one amp back for a full upgrade, and yes…I do hear a difference in tone between the left and right channel, as well as pushing one amp a bit higher than the other.

Kenny Burrell "Laid Back" 32Jazz cd

A great compilation that lives up to its title. Wow. Kenny is such a great player.

I also love how the title printed on the cover has a guitar body curve.

I am streaming a carefully constructed playlist of music my wife will not object to nor in any way will it interfere with her sleep while I am winding down after the race day activities and heading to bed.

Mostly piano or vocal, not any horn music. She won't sleep with horns.

I'll bet that sounds great!
Do you have a Dolby Atmos set up?

With my movie rig, I set up an old school surround (5.1) but I have nothing behind me. It is all in front with my surround speakers set high up, angled upward, bouncing off the ceiling.
So I have no surround, just an "expansion" of sound when the big "rear" effects hit.
I have come to like this set up.

Atmos configurations would be much more involved.
I've just concluded over some time that I am just not that interested in whatever they do to with speakers everywhere to make movies "better."

I have helped some friends set things up properly and it can be a different movie experience, but it's not my thing.

No, I've never been intrigued by surround sound, I haven't ever really heard a setup that made me want to have one, and I've concentrated on great two channel instead. Hard to afford more channels of the same quality! This time around on this I'm listening to the stereo 96/24 on this Blu-ray, and previously I had listened to the Atmos sampled down to stereo via headphones.

I'm not really a "movies" person. In Austin I liked to go to a few movies with friends. Here for ten years I don't have similar friends and my wife doesn't really like to go out to movies. So I've never really been watching a lot of movies at home. TV shows, yes. Lots. I just prefer things like "Better Call Saul" or "WestWorld" or "Evil" or "Legion" or "Doom Patrol" to movies.

I like the new remix of "Time out of Mind" (have the five cd box set) but . . . ultimately I think I prefer the original mix. Nice to have both.

Josee Koning "Tribute to Antonio Carlos Jobim"



I was hesitant about this one until I saw it was produced by Dori Caymmi. Very nice mellow tribute to the man.

Enjoying some Serge Chaloff thanks to Lon’s recommendation.  I’ve been listening to his work for a while now.  Currently streaming Boston Blow Up  through Roon as a Flac file pulled from Tidal in CD quality.

Chaloff was such a talent, and no wonder, he was the son of the pianist and composer Julius Chaloff and the leading Boston piano teacher, Margaret Chaloff (known professionally as Madame Chaloff). Hearing Ellington's baritone player (and chauffeur!) the killer Harry Carney drew him to the instrument. He was playing in clubs at age 14 and 15. An amazing player! Glad you have been checking him out.

I'm playing a cd of another baritone saxophonist, the Swedish giant of the instrument, Lars Gullin.

Yes I’ve been enjoying him as well as Lars Gullin.  When I add music to my que as background music in Roon….Chaloff, Gullin, and Getz are always in the mix.

I love bari sax, but I don't have either of those works.

I'll have to explore by streaming for the moment.

Thanks!
