    You gotta hear the sonics on the new Sony James Taylor: JT album. They are fantastic.
    The tracks I think just jump out of the speakers like he is in the living room:
    Your Smiling Face
    Secret O' Life
    Handy Man
    Doug Sax did the hero's effort of a DSD mastering job, straight from analog tape.
    I also received today from Acoustic Sounds, all Super Audio, of course:
    Miles Davis, In A Silent Way
    Chet Baker, Chet (early listening is superb)
    Bill Evans, Waltz for Debby
    Mini reviews to follow...[​IMG]
    It's been an early Christmas! [​IMG]

    Lee, I panned the JT disc for not being changer friendly last week. Nothin' wrong with the sound, maybe? See the old thread. Best wishes!
    P.S.- I got Rollins' WAY OUT WEST 2-day and it's good but why didn't he take Max Roach out west with him?[​IMG]

    Yes, they did a nice job on JT, but given the amount of fans, don't you think they should have released more JT titles by now?

    Lee,

    Yes, but how big is JT's Columbia catalog anyway? It has to be nearly as extensive as "this month's Miles Davis release".

    They've got more Billy Joel releases on SACD than they do JT -- I love them both, but JT has by and large had better recording quality anyway.

    Regards,

    Lee, I've already got Saxaphone Colossus. It's one of my favourites. Best wishes!

    Lee,
    I agree that JT sounds excellent. Kudos to Sony for this one.
    John,
    I agree with you. Sony should give us more James Taylor on SACD. Why in the world did Sony not release October Road on SACD a few weeks ago? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    OK Kotches! You ribbed me a while back for mentioning some DVD-A discs that were "Lite" jazz...and you listen to Billy Joel? Now I don't know what to think[​IMG]
