Cannonball Adderley with Bill Evans
Enjoyed the CD for 20 years, but the 192/24 FLAC is even better, richer and clearer.
This combo was a total surprise. I thoroughly enjoyed the playing of Adderley and Evans. If you like these musicians seperately you'll love them together. You won't be disappointed. Recording quality is also excellent.
Really nice album with great sound. This has long been a favorite of mine.
ALMOST TO GOOD FOR WORDS
I have enjoyed this album in numerous formats. The original LP, the Steve Hoffman DCC Gold CD, a 16-44 download, and now this hi-res jewel. DSD 256 is Bob W's sweet spot, the one resolution he prefers to work in when remastering. It shows. The sound is bracing , dazzling, illuminating, and ultimately satisfying, with the emphasis on that last word. Everything about this one is sonically excellent. Crystalline clarity, super but not excessive detail, and micro and macrodynamics to your heart's content. The sound stage! Side to side and front to back and up to down, every which way it gets! Everybody is placed realistically and credibly. It's as if there is no technology at work here, just music. And what music! You need only look at the lineup to begin to imagine how good the performances are. Think of it! Here you have 2/5 (Evans & Adderley) of the Miles Davis Quintet that made "Kind of Blue" in the same time period, and one half of the Modern Jazz Quartet (Heath and Kay)! Even George Steinbrenner couldn't have put together a more stellar team than that. Adderley adds a great deal to the Evans trio concept, which surprised me when I first heard this album. I was worried that it would be too many quarterbacks for the one ball. I couldn't have been more wrong! Having loved this album for decades, I can't begin to recommend it strongly enough to you in this version. If you're reading this, you're probably enough of a jazz and music lover to appreciate this one. But you'll have to buy it and download it first!
