    Here’s some nice sound quality selections I was enjoying last night.

    Louis Armstrong - Satchmo Plays King Oliver
    Billy Holiday - Songs For Distingue Lovers
    Art Pepper Meets The Rhythm Section

    The Satchmo album is an “MS Recording”.

    And then I found this rare footage of the recording.

    Just letting people know this offer is still available.

    While I am not a believer in MQA, to have so much CD quality music at your fingertips is awesome.

    Because of this deal, I have been using both Tidal and Qobuz via Roon. When the deal goes away, I will probably just stick with Qobuz.

    I have been working from home since March 27th. The best things about it have been no commute, and being able to listen to my system throughout the day, and it is sounding awesome. I just have to pause it a lot because of conference calls.

    Anyone else find the drummer's playing in that recording interesting? Anyway, the session in the video is studio mic'd. How did that special MS recording method apply? Maybe they used both?

    I love the way Danny's drums sound on my system in this recording. It really picks up about 2 minutes in and I can almost picture his kit right in my room.

    Here's a pretty new one, put out by Vic Firth drumsticks of Danny playing live. He is schooled in music and takes a lot of inspiration from some famous jazz drummers like Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich. He's my personal favorite drummer alive, and might be the best EVER...



    He's just as comfortable playing on a small kit with a jazz trio as he is with a massive one in a prog metal band! Try to pick out the time signature this is played in. Then try to pick out the different polyrhythms he's playing on each limb. They call him "the octopus" because he plays like each limb has its own independent brain, playing multiple time signatures at once. Incredible.
