As several have pointed out, microphones, venue, electronics, the sound engineer influence what we hear. If you dont like diana krall, just say so
Yeah I admit, some of my words might have been cheap shots at Diana Krall's talents , which is not right. Diana has beena super talent for many jazz/music fans world over.
AS I got to thinking , my gripe has more to do with studio tech geeks taking liberties with new high tech gadgets.
I mean , no doubt starting in the early 80's (according to my tech guy who says thats really when these mods/tweaks really began) , the tweaking on voice has gonea bit too far.
Many of you here know what I am talking about.
So aside from Diana Krall (Completely, taking Diana off the discussion)
are the studio tech geeks guilty of something here..
Thats my Q.
Should all voice manipulation gadets be banned, outlawed from any/every record, no matter what genre, Well rap is not music anyway, so that group is allowed freely to make whatever noise they wish.
We are only concerned with real muisc, pop, jazz, folk.
It is my belief we need to get back to pre electronic tweaks, and start all over.
Yeah I know , how dull, boring.
And btw the RS had onlya few good songs, all written by the creative and talented Brian Jones, , then again , drugs didn't hurt that process.
To me drug induced music should be canceled. I never listen to rock any longer.
So yeah, thats my beef, studio tech geeks gone wild with modern gadgets, giving us what is not really The Real Deal.
I feel this is fair and balanced, and hard to argue against.
I have no hidden agenda, the tech geeks are exposed. The studios have The Agenda, what sells, financial gains over art for art's sake.
We need to get back to pure folk music, unfiltered,/ unplugged.
