  1. Mingus in Mono

    These bonus tracks are not mentioned in Lord and were not in the Mosaic. But they seem to stick to the original LPs instead of completing the sessions - two more tracks were recorded at that session that were in the Mosaic and on a later fourh Candid CD.
  2. I've got mono.

  3. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Got this yesterday. Excellent - the new reference in Lious Couperin recordings, great playing, elaborate liner notes. It completes the four volumes of the harpsichord works, and the notes mention in passing that the organ pieces will follow, as well as the few chamber music piecxes and newly attributed vocal compositions! Highly recommended! https://www.aeolus-music.com/Alle-Tontraeger/AE10184-Couperin-Louis-Pavanne-de-Mr-Couperin The label sells a bundle of all four volumes at reduced price, for those who don't have any of them: https://www.aeolus-music.com/Alle-Tontraeger/Bundles/AE80013-Louis-Couperin-Complete-works-for-harpsichord Revisiting the previous volumes. too:
  4. I've got mono.

    Not in my living room. That's the surface texture of the hardwood from which they make the housing. The plastic of the cheaper cartridges has a smoother surface. But the hardwood resonates less.
  5. I've got mono.

    Lack of space?
  6. Played a whole bunch today, the first two are new buys these year. Ella's disc is a nice surprise, she's mot one of my favourites, but I really enjoy her album. The Irvin Mayfiled is tops!
  7. Sexiest album covers

    Sexiness is in the eye of the viewer.
  8. I've got mono.

    I have exactly that mono cartridge mounted on my second headshell of my Thorens turntable, and I'm very stisfied with the sound it creates. Much less noise compared to the same LP played back with a stereo cartridge. The difference in weight of both is the only inconvenience about changing the headshells. But I just got then idea of getting a precision scale and attaching some weight to the lighter headshell. That would make it a lot easier.
  9. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    Spinning these right now! They alone are worth the buy! Besides the Basie sides, my favourites are the Teddy Wilson big band tracks. The Glen Miller band swings much harder than in the studio.
  10. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    This was delivered this morning, Discs 1 through 4 so far. I do not regret the investment ....
  11. I love the first track on this album! Harvey Mason delivers such a great groove.
  12. Sexiest album covers

  13. Only in the Duke Pearson Mosaic Select, IIRC.
  14. Your post made me curious, but used copies are rather expensive! Stylish attire in redm green, and white!
  15. what are you drinking right now?

    This weekend's evening bottle: Vignerons Catalans Tautavel Signature 2018
  16. Me want! My wife and I chimed in the season with these two favourites:
  17. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Yesterday, these two new acquisitions: The Whitfield is one of the best sounding live recordings I ever heard! Great playing, too.
