frogman,Really liked your post re: Nat Adderly.  Thank you.  One of my favorite tunes with both Nat and his brother Cannonball playing together.  If it's been posted here already I missed it.  Equal parts traditional jazz and fusion, a cup of blue...

alesatops,Damn... Bill Harris, It Might as Well Be Spring...... Damn. He, (and his friends) are just so damn good. This is a superb example of a ballad grooving very hard. Thank you for posting. I’ve never heard the Oscar Peterson version of Mac t...

You guys sent me on a weekend binge with your recommendations for some fat Afro Cuban Jazz.  I had a terrific weekend.  Last night my wife and I wedged ourselves into the "sweet spot," held hands and listened to Stan Getz, (one of my top 5 ballad ...

Frogman:You said, "  I also find it curious that when even our most revered jazz artists proclaim that "there are only two kinds of music...good music and bad"I laughed out loud when I read that!  I watched a short documentary on Branford Marsali...

On the Lyle Mays record:I've had a copy of this for many years and for a two or three month period, the Alaskan Suite was my go to music.  Whether or not it's jazz is a good question.  When I bought my copy it was in the jazz section where it prob...

Thank you all for your input.gdnrbob; You said, "  Try a $1500 dac with a return privilege and try it in your system.  You'll either hear it or you won't."You hit the proverbial nail precisely on the head.  I am hoping I *will* hear a difference a...
