Music for the season

One of the best sounding Interpretation of  Claude Thornhills composition " Snowfall"  IMO can be found on the CD below arranged by Gene Puerling and Manny Albam.

In yesterday from Resonance Records. . . a very handsome 3 cd set of Les McCann live material. This disc 1 has great sound, nice swing for another chilly morning up too early.

Les McCann “Never A Dull Moment! Live From Coast To Coast (1966-67)” 3 CD set, disc 1

Baden Powell - Solitude on Guitar (Columbia BR, 1973)
I'm still transfixed by the sound this guy makes with his guitar.  What an absolute master.

 

I definitely prefer the Brazilian cover (above) compared to the cheesy image on the U.S. release:

It's like the designers were trying to create an MPS-like cover -- but it doesn't come off, IMO.  Instead, it just looks like something that's pitched at an easy listening audience.  . . . Not that there's anything inherently wrong with easy listening.  But this ain't that.

Superb .... btw agree on your cover art assessment ....

Miles Davis “Miles in Berlin” Sony Blu-Spec CD2 2 cd set, disc 2, the “pseudo-stereo” mastering used when the session was first released in Germany on LP.

It sounds really good! Surprisingly. Will probably listen to this version as often as the mono later released.

And what a concert this was! Pretty certain this was the first official recording of Wayne Shorter with these band members.
