Grant Green suggestions
Martykl,just thought to remind you of a another great but under rated guitar player that willl sure make you smile.It is Ivan 'boogallo' Joe Jones,guess you can find his albums,on amazon probably,try 'Right on'.

Grant Green suggestions
Orpheus,I am not sure if I undrestood you correctly,but if you are looking for Baby Face editions on 'blue note',here in Europe you can buy them without a problem,on cd anyway. 
Grant Green suggestions
You may look for his live albums as well,I am aware of 3 of them,and also he recorded lots of albums as a guest guitarist in that period which are worth of listening,usually with some organ player,like big john patton,or baby face willete,or with ...

Foster 9,You should check the ANALOGUE PRODUCTIONS,they have just remastered and published some clasic blue note editions on hybrid sacd.Men behind that project are Steve Hofman and Kevin Gray and with Alan Yoshida from xrcd,probably ones of the b... 
Sonus Faber Concerto upgrade?
I had a SF grand piano home,moved to cremona auditor.Big step forward,aldo I was sceptical because they are smaller speakers,but I was so wrong.The stage is bigger and the presence,details and the body of instruments are beyond comparation to gran...

Bryston BCD-1 impressions?
The best description would be is that I felt like someonepull down the blanket from my speakers,talking about difference between rotel and bryston.I also must say that I liked rotel,and that here in europe bcd 1 is about more than 3 times(300%)exp... 
Bryston BCD-1 impressions?
I compared bcd1 with pathos digit,and meridian G08.2,had rotel 1072 before that.I liked it more,and bought it,have not look back since.Guess its all about the personal taste and synergy with rest of the system.In MHO,it seems to me that people who...
