From my visit to Rochester NY Records Archives...bought a few LPs...including these two:

Listening to Santana's Abraxas....fusion jazz latino. great percussion explosion!

And Miles Davis's Jack Johnson with John McLaughlin in it. (was disappointed with the CD version...Miles's trumpet was drowned away but now on the LP version, clean as the whistle!)

Gotta say that listening to the vinyl really restores my appreciation for these guys...CDs just can't do justice. Am returning to vinyl again...never trusted those bits

Thanks for the recommendation.
A thread for each (jazz and blues) would be great.
(PS: Cannonball . On CD when I have to, on vinyl when I can)

Yes, that is my intention; a discreet thread for each music genre...Blues, Classical, New Age, World/International music....

I'm tempted to say the best music defies simple categorization.

I wonder sometimes; which ♫ tune was the first ever one played on Earth, and when, and by who? ...Perhaps it was whistling, in reply to a bird singing?
...The very first origin of music...I don't think it was Jazz...but maybe Blues from Africa? ...What about Classical music, from somewhere in Europe?

Sure, they all related somehow. And Jazz has its own origin. ...Just like roses and tulips, from the flowers' family.

I grew up with Jazz @ college, assisting to live Jazz concerts...progressive Jazz...with impetuous rhythms. ...Wondering where it was going.
The more exposure to music from various origins the more mastering in the art of listening to particular genres. ...I think. ...And with grandeur appreciation/inner comfort zone.
I like Relax Jazz, Smooth Jazz, Comfort Jazz, High-End Jazz, Old Jazz, Coltrane and Cole.

Gave Cyrus Chestnut's Earth Stories quite a few listens on a recent series of long airplane trips. Forgot how great this CD is both in terms of performance, tunes and sound.

Listening to this one for the first time.



I really like Mr Monk. He plays all the wrong notes at all the wrong times, and gets away with it.

Kay Starr, I Cry By Night



This album has been a revelation, in many ways.

It showcases an underrated jazz/blues singer, who was probably dismissed as she also sang country. For phrasing, Sinatra and Holiday have nothing on her here.

On Baby Won't You Please Come Home, it's hard to believe she's not black. Black singers of the era have said as much.

Another revelation: Free of the ticks and pops of Vinyl, this release, remastered straight from the master tapes -- if you tell yourself that the tape hiss is "dither" -- sounds as good as anything in the digital era. It reminds us that the biggest jump in Audio Quality did not necessarily come from digital/CD. It came when the boys from the WW2 Signal Corps brought back the Magnetophone magnetic tape recorders from Germany, perfected by Ampex/Bing Crosby.

Another revelation: The Amazon AAC download of the Remastered version is just gorgeous. Thanks to JJ and the other mp3 guys for making works like this so accessible.

Downloaded this album today from Qobuz in 16/44.1 and it is sensational. And Ben Webster to boot.

Very nice indeed. It is on the Peggy Lee tribute album. I now have it in the queue for a purchase in the next week or two.

An interesting side note on Peggy Lee/Kay Starr.

After Kay Starr signed with her first label, the A&R people told her that Peggy Lee, who was the star, would get first crack at all the new tunes. Kay only got to work with the ones Lee passed on. IMHO, Kay is the better singer, with a stronger voice and a wider range of material.

Last I checked, Kay Starr -- like my mother -- is still alive and kicking at 92.
