I've downloaded a handful of these tape-to-DSD transfers and they sound super rich, detailed, musical, and analog! Definitely going to check out more of these releases in the future.
HDDT's new mastering of Clark Terry's legendary Color Changes brings the album's name to vivid life. One hears all the colors of Terry's glorious flugelhorn and his sidemen with depth and richness not to be heard on any CD or the streaming services. Terry's sophisticated musicianship coupled with masterful arrangements and original material makes this one of the great jazz albums from one of jazz's greatest epochs.
As one of the most respected horn artists Clark Terry was second to none in his playing. His versatility took him on a musical trip that influenced Miles and Quincy and had him rubbing shoulders with many of the greats in jazz history. On this release the command of his horns is terrific. Worth a listen.
I chose the DSD of 'Color Changes' from Clark Terry because his lip technique allowed him to do so many nuances in the trumpet. You need the best resolution in your system to hear these. So no matter what good your system is, you have to have the best source there is.
