You are correct of course. I just have to rant and rave every so often. I read a post on another site where the poster said high-end audio is like Icarua, of greek mythology, who flew too close to the sun and his wings of wax melted. Gravity was in effect.:) High-end audio people, buyers and makers, seem to be flying high now, but, ludicrous prices may be their wax wings.
I was reading the latest copy of BBC Music Magazine and on the one page that they dedicate to Jazz, they reviewed some recordings by Jimmy Rushing. Turns out he made a record with Dave Brubeck!! What an unlikely pairing. Blues shouter and cerebral jazz player! Brubeck supposely said it was one of his favorite recordings. Go Figure. I will have to try it. They also highly recommend the book: 'The Jazz Standards: A Guide To The Repertoire'
