  1. late one night Chris Winter showcased violinist Jerry Goodman on ‘double jay’ back at that time, I was a teenager, radio 2JJ was truly independent, truly alternative and truly inspirational that segment featured the “My Goal Is Beyond” LP by John McLaughlin..... 
it was that album which led to a further exploration of and passion for fusion and jazz
  2. —devastated, a great loss ""Chris was a foundation presenter for Double Jay in 1975 and it is his free spirit and style that inspired the persona of the whole station," ABC Head of Music and Creative Development Chris Scaddan said today." https://www.abc.net.au/doublej/music-reads/music-news/chris-winter-double-j-died-obit-triple-j-room-to-move/11198662?sf214122627=1&fbclid=IwAR1Mc9Jw5_2fFdTFks0h1WIp7JDonK1JDumsU50BVZVgxoO9WJyUb4-2TMQ
  3. ECM Records have decided to stream their whole catalog.. so many many gems .. it's "cognitive overload" on which title to play first I have selected the Jimmy Giuffre 3 compilation "1961" as the first cab off the rank The compilation includes 2 albums "Fusion" and "Thesis" and 3 unissued tracks from the "Thesis" sessions. Jimmy Giuffre on clarinet, Paul Blew on piano, and Steve Swallow on double bass..
  4. Back when I was in high school, speaking late 70s here LOL ,, it was Chris Winter with his late night program on 2JJ that introduced me to the 'transcendental' John McLaughlin. It was actually a segment on the violinist Jerry Goodman. Not strictly a jazz record, but a cross between "jazz fusion" and "world fusion". One of my 'desert island discs' , I'm streaming "My Goal's Beyond" which features not only Jerry Goodman but also Charlie Haden and Dave Liebman.
  5. One that deserves a high-res release Marilyn Moore — "Moody" currently streaming
  6. I've waited for a long time for this and I'm not disappointed.. I agree with Soundfan, great transfer, wonderful package A high-res 24-bit, 96 kHz version is available through HDtracks http://www.hdtracks.com/les-liaisons-dangereuses-1960-hi-res-audio
  7. We got to make the most of it.. well ..while we still have it Mello LOL
  8. Thanks Mark and everyone concerned .. a lot of fond memories here —Skid MacMarx
  9. Streaming via Spotify Elmo Hope — Hope-Full
  10. Yes, MQA would be the most contentious topic at the moment.
  11. Back when DVB-T was first introduced .. it was the place for early adopters to go to quiz the network technicians. At its height, it was a great resource and place to meet like minds. Over the years, there were a few quite passionate debates;.. HD versus SD multichannelling (ABC Kids, Fly) ,, HD-DVD versus Blu-ray.,,, Now we talk about streaming and downloads LOL
  12. Sony Music in the US have released further titles from the MONO box set as 24-bit downloads (Kind Of Blue Mono 24-bit download was released at the same time as the box set) Sketches Of Spain (Mono Version) http://www.hdtracks.com/sketches-of-spain-mono-version Porgy And Bess (Mono Version) http://www.hdtracks.com/porgy-and-bess-mono-version Miles Ahead (Mono Version) http://www.hdtracks.com/miles-ahead-mono-version Someday My Prince Will Come (Mono Version) http://www.hdtracks.com/someday-my-prince-will-come-mono-version "The new mono release sounds better differentiated, darker and deeper. This is the kind of sound I like. In comparison, the stereo versions released by Sony in the Master Sound series were quite reasonable, but not enough resolving, as if slightly clouded. The new version beat them with presence and density." http://www.positive-feedback.com/Issue73/davis_mono.htm
  13. Yes, many of the international download sites like HD TRACKS (USA), HIGHRESAUDIO (Germany), and QOBUZ (France) have geo-blocking. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geo-blocking#Australia And, VPN software that circumvents these blocks can be an added expense https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_private_network Depending on your play-back equipment, I advised purchasing "lossless" 16-bit, 44.1kHz and above. Over 20-bit, 48 kHz is regarded as "high-res" https://www.riaa.com/high-resolution-audio-initiative-gets-major-boost-with-new-hi-res-music-logo-and-branding-materials-for-digital-retailers/ Naturally, the higher resolution, the more expensive the download As for Joan Armatrading in particular, there doesn't appear to be any high-res releases on any of the above overseas sites Sadly, zDigital in Australia only offers JA lossy MP3 downloads...although it appears you can buy single tracks from them. https://www.zdigital.com.au/search?q=Joan Armatrading
