Bill Evans, Another Time: The Hilversum Concert

By | September 20th, 2017|Categories: Stereophile|

Resonance Records is emerging as the most vital jazz reissue house around—or, rather, not “reissue,” for the music they put out has never been issued before: the producer Zev Feldman (or someone who contacts him) has found it in an unexamined vault, back room, or collectors’ cove. The material is top-flight, the sound very good to excellent, and he often releases the albums on CD and LP. So far he has delivered some of the best albums ever by Larry Young, Sarah Vaughan, Shirley Horn, and the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra, but Feldman holds a special regard for Bill Evans.… Read the full article

Spinning in Style: Pro-Ject Special-Edition Turntables

By | September 20th, 2017|Categories: Sound + Vision|

I’ve been a hard-core Beatles fan for…well, let’s just say a very long time. So I was more than a little intrigued when I saw Pro-Ject’s Fab Four turntables (my name, not theirs) at the May press event unveiling Giles Martin’s stereo remix of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The thought of a “new” Beatles record being played on a table that pays homage to the greatest band ever was compelling. Maybe it’s time to revisit my long-dormant vinyl collection…

Ry Cooder: Paradise and Lunch

Ry Cooder: Paradise and Lunch

It’s like a postcard from Weird Old America. Working with compositional sources as diverse as Burt Bacharach (“Mexican Divorce”) and Blind Willie McTell (“Married Man’s a Fool”), roots-rock guitarist Ry Cooder stitches a folksy quilt that depicts a bold vision of the American songbook. Blues, gospel, trad-jazz, Tex-Mex—it’s all there, yet there’s a cohesiveness to this laidback classic, thanks to Cooder’s rootsy guitar skills, his command of vernacular music, and rich vocal harmonies. Faith, infidelity, and the battle of the sexes inform many of these tracks, including the Ry Cooder/Washington Phillips original “Tattler” and Little Milton’s “If Walls Could Talk.” …… Read the full article

Two interesting themes have developed over the last year or so but not necessarily intertwining until now.

The first has been the gradual introduction of planar technology into IEMs. Bravo says I because thus far with Audeze’s iSINE series it’s been a pretty good start.

The second highlight goes back just a little further, maybe early 2016, and that has been the rise in in-ear technology designed to reduce the damage caused by pneumatic pressure on our ears, an all too common problem with traditional IEM designs.… Read the full article
