Moment To Moment / Cava Menzies / Nick Phillips

 

Artists: Cava Menzies & Nick Phillips

Record Label: Nick Phillips Music

Genre: Jazz

 

The album was recorded at Fantasy studios at 192/24 WAV.

Remastered through an analog stage to produce the DSD masters @ bluecoastmusic.

 

This timeless gem is a brilliant collection of exotic and soothing compositions. This quartet featuring the exceptional talents of Cava Menzies and Nick Phillips magically seduces the listener into a state of utter tranquility. The flow and the emotion of each song are simply breathtaking. It is one thing to create a mood, but it is quite another to sustain that mood for an entire album. Their fusion of mellow trumpet and delicate piano selections are simply magnificent. This is as dark "blue" and as mysterious as it gets. This is right from the heart of "Cool Jazz" and the "American song book." I would you like you to read the review at allaboutjazz.com. This is destined to be a classic. I am smitten, yes, but disheartened by of how many have not taken note.

Get into real jazz!

Sorry, can’t agree. Other than the really good sound, I wouldn’t recommend this album. I bought it because Blue Coast compared it to “Kind of Blue”. 
I don’t hear that. I’ve listened to KOB hundreds of times and it never fails to captivate. 

 

“Moment to Moment” doesn’t do that for me. It’s just well played, nice sounding and not interesting. Boring. 


Main listening (small home office):

Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>CAPS IV Pipeline Server + Sonore 12V PS>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.
 

Secondary Listening: CAPS Pipeline>IFi iOne DAC>Schiit Freya>Kii Three . Also an SBT and a RB Pi 3B+ running piCorePlayer as an SBT emulator. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

Maybe your surge is getting too much protection?  I just played that album for the first time and it sounded captivating even on my iPad. Gorgeous....felt like I’ve got neuro-receptor sites for the music. The timing and phrasing is exquisite.  KOB is wonderful too  😁
