I must say that i am not that experienced of a classical music listener (in the critical way)..I have been an amateur musician for years and years, and have pro musicians all over my family...But here we go:
1. The Billy Cobham's Menagerie album is cool...Its not a wow you out kinda of work, but more tranquil and steady ensemble. The recording quality seems very high..Not a lot of competition for groove space...Very enjoyable LP.
2. The 1959 Argo release of Gibbons Tudor Church Music is the least familiar to me. I am not a big fan of vocal music for now. But the venue seems well suited, and there is tremendous clarity and energy in this LP.
3. The Water Lily LP just in the Paganiniana (Ricci on violin) is a tremendous recording...Very intimate and nuance filled, it may not be the greatest interpretation, but good enough and sounds excellent.
4. Robbie Basho's LP is one of the most enjoyable...tremendous recording, again, quite intimate and being steel strings guitars, lots of detail up high....great technique and variety of selection.
5. The London bBlue back of The Trout Quintet is nice, very mellow tone. I guess I am enjoying more the modern audiophile recordings (the well done ones) than some of the old war horse label...When th piano is a little louder the recording has more life.
6. The The Falls trio of classical guitars is quite generic in my mind....After listening to the LA Guitar Quartet, and some others, I feel that this team lacks some magic..but enjoyable just the same....a little bit sterile of a recording.
7. All of Mike Odfield's LP sound great , this is no exception.
