Thanks. I tried searching the forum on "Blakely" and "Moanin" but got no hits. Maybe I was searching the wrong category or something. In any event, I downloaded the 24/96 version from HD Tracks this morning. Looking forward to listening to it when I get home from work tonight.

I bet you'll love it. The HDTracks version of Moanin is in my top 5 downloads from there. Noticeable improvement over CD.

I just bought Roots and Herbs, but haven't listened yet.

Besides sounding good, it's also one of my favorite jazz albums musically. A winner all 'round.
