(Sounds better on a cheap transistor pocket radio.)
“Ray Bryant Trio” recent Sony budget reissue. Bryant had such a wonderfully confident touch and steady sense of time.
Bach cello suites. Mauro Valli. 24/96. I am finding them a little dry and intellectual. Nothing wrong with that I suppose.

“Al Haig plays the music of Jerome Kern” (Helen Merrill Presents)
I searched for the lute music to no avail on Qobuz but the search threw up some albums I would not normally have come across. I am absolutely delighted with this one. A wonderful clear crisp sound despite ‘only’ being 16/44.1
Have heard quite a few albums by Horace Silver. Not this one though. Need to check it out.
I like Ars Antiqua Austria.
It’s a good one! Farmer and Mobley and Silver are all leaders at this time and worked well together before and after. . . . Silver is very “on” and there’s some wonderful piano playing here very clearly recorded. I particularly like the Mobley solos here.
So right. This is one of my fave R&R albums of late 60s -early 70s. Peter Green was ACTUALLY god and was backed by the best rhythm section in R&R. What could go wrong? Oh right, LSD …
