Fick mich, lieber Peter!

Great stuff, Joe! Do you enjoy Paul Desmond's solo recordings? Now, he's the epitome of Cool Jazz. 8)

Fantastic listening and good morning, daddy o's:



From Chicago (1-4) and Los Angeles (5-10) in 1957.  And for the record,
Oscar Peterson on the piano
Herb Ellis on guitar
Ray Brown on bass
Connie May on drums

One of my favorite things to do when listening to  jazz that was recorded live is taking the time to find photos of the venue that the performers played at for the recording.  Not bad digs for these performances.

Chicago's Civic Opera House


Shrine Auditorium in L.A.


Funny, I cannot find one photo of Getz and J.J. together.  You would think that someone would have snapped a shot of the two on stage. Maybe someone here can dig up a pic.

Not sure if you found this out, George, but with Brubeck recordings, my system really comes through.  I do not know how many times I have grabbed on of his lps (especially Time Out) to demonstrate the sound I can squeeze out of my components.

Time Out has had a lot of CD masterings. I have the latest one from 2012 and it sounds great! My previous CD (the 1997 mastering) was loud and harsh.

I was surprised to find out that IMO Time Further Out might be the better album of the two, musically.

To see how my system comes through, I grab the early Japan for USA mastering of Aja. Perfection.
