What mono are you spinning tonight?

Many of us have extensive mono collections.  What are you spinning tonight in glorious one channel? 

Horace is one of my favorites, and Stan has his moments.  Nice pairing on this Baronet Records LP ( B-102) 1962 reissue of Stan's 1956 release.

Paul Desmond on RCA LPM 2438
Desmond Blue  accompanied by Jim Hall on a 1962 pressing. 
I don't know how many times I can hear "My Funny Valentine", but at least one more.

Beethoven Moonlight, Pathetique, Appassionata
Badura Skoda on Westminster WL 5184
A 1954 recording with great dynamics and clarity.  Makes me love my open baffle servo sub!  9' grand pianos should be felt as well as heard.

Dvorak  New World Symphony on Westminster XWN 18295
Rodzinski and the Philharmonic Symphony of London  recorded in 1954
One of the better Westminster pressings, quiet and dynamic

Its quite possible to listen mono with vintage Jazz recordings, the analog sound usually is well recorded as this MJQ I have in SACD that sound great:

In a Miles frame of mind tonight, ET?
Actually, so am I.  Think I'll go find my copy of Miles Ahead.  :thumb:

J.J Johnson Quintet.  J is for Jazz   1956 pressing

J.J. is the heart and soul of trombone jazz.  This one is another fine outing.
