First music of the day

The Complete Capitol Studio Recordings of Stan Kenton 1943-1947, disc III

Vibraphonist Johnny Lytle offers up a fine morning vibe on this Craft Recordings LP reissue, People & Love. This certainly offers up an early San Francisco perspective on soul jazz, which I am enjoying immensely at the moment.

SFJazz Collective “Original Compositions and works of John Coltrane” disc 1 and 2

My copy is signed by Renee Rosnes in 2007.

On vinyl?

The SFJazz? No. I’m not sure this one was available on vinyl.

I was breaking your chops, my friend.

OK. I do listen to LPs about 5 % of the time or less, CDs sound better to me except for some reissues of pre-tape material. I don’t have the money for exotic phono gear.

Oddly for the first time this year SFJazz Collective is releasing their annual release only on vinyl. I won’t be getting it.

The Sutherland Little Loco is proving itself to be a more than worthy companion to the Vitus RI-101 Mk2. My Mutech Hayabusa, remains in the box, as I’ve decided to have Brian Walsh install it and dial it in. No hurry at this time.

I find that Hip Bop manages to capture and reproduce certain characteristics of the classic Blue Note sound and production.

Followed by

Sonny Rollins “Freedom Weaver” Resonance Records 3 cd set, disc 1

I’ve long had this material in previous issues and it does sound a bit clearer and more vivid (and louder) here. Amazing music–Sonny was a true jazz force at this time.
