I finally had a chance to use the BB gift card I received at Christmas plus a few from Amazon.
Lyle Lovett and his Large Band; self titled.
ring dem bells - Lionel Hampton; collection of early Lionel Hampton tracks from around 1939/1940. The music swings but the quality is about what you would expect for the age.
Hamp and Getz - Lionel Hampton & Stan Getz; sessions from 1954/55. Recording quality is pretty good considering.
Django - MQJ; an early Modern Jazz Quartet recording with the founding members. Quite good and the quality is pretty decent.
Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker - The Classical Jazz Quartet; kind of a modern version of MQJ. Very good music and well recorded. The liner notes indicate it was recorded live to two track analog.
Plays Bach - The Classical Jazz Quartet; as above plus the imaging on this recording is very good. It is very easy to locate the pieces of his drum kit in space. Sweet!
Hot Rocks 1964-1971 - Rolling Stones; abko SACD reissue.
Their Satanic Majesties Request - Rolling Stones; abko SACD reissue.
Hmm.. mostly old stuff this trip. Enjoyable though.
