Recorded in 2021 (Naïve), via Qobuz 24/96

Avishai Cohen - Bass
Elchin Shirinov - Piano
Roni Kaspi - Drums


Listening and liking it!

Having a blast listening to/comparing the Roon/Qobuz stream vs. the CD vs. the vinyl vs. the cassette of this wonderful duo collaboration maybe I should record a copy on RTR

Indeed a very good album.
Solid recommendation.

Default What jazz music are you listening to?

Bart, the eternal debate [emoji16]
Until recently the streaming was winning hands down, but I’ve always felt that there was no reason that my reasonably decent turntable, arm and cartridge should not be able to perform at least at par. With my recent change of preamp to the EAR Yoshino 912 it has taken the rig to another level thanks to its superb phono section. I can now say that vinyl is at par with streaming. But there are some upgrades coming up shortly on the analog rig that should likely take it above streaming, will be reporting in the coming weeks. And quite surprisingly the cassette playing via the Nakamichi Dragon is very close to the CD version (although my current SACD/CD Yamaha player is certainly not the most resolving). I will also tape to RTR, the last time I did this exercice it won hands down, thanks to a very pleasant sound distortion [emoji23]

Isao Suzuki Trio - Blow Up

I really dig Japanese 70s jazz, and those TBM recordings are so good!

Recorded in 1973 (TBM-15), listening on vinyl (TBM-2515, 1977 re-issue)

Isao Suzuki - Bass, Cello
Kunihiko Sugano - Piano, Fender-Rhodes
Takashi Mizuhashi - Bass (Tracks A-1/3, B-2/3)
George Otsuka - Drums
