I think its so awesome that this site discusses music in earnest as much as it does... so many people I know in high-end have their 15 greatest hits albums on permanent repeat, yet there is SO much positively incredible music out there that it’s literally mind altering. 

 

So awesome - I bet every one of these is a phenomenal release!!!

Picking favorites is like picking your favorite children. Every time I hear a new track my mind is blown. It's so cool.

This is what it is all about Chris. It is awesome that you could snag these! Looks  like there will be many late night sessions. Hope the wife and kids don’t mind too much!

Some of these titles are available at cdjapan, if anyone is interested. I just purchased six titles.

 

I now see it was mentioned in the article, my mistake.

Thank you, Chris.  Listening to Tsuyoshi Yamamoto Trio's Speak Low via Qobuz.  Very dynamic and swinging.  Never heard their music before!  Great find.  Much appreciated.

Masaru Imada Trio +2, Green Caterpillar (TBM-39)

 

The first two tracks on this album are a bit off the wall, but in a really cool way. The opening track has an unmistakable psychedelic electric piano opening that may turn some traditionalist listeners off, but it's right up my alley.

 

 

 

Welcome to "Jazz Funk"!

 

Great stuff Chris!   I have to say that I am jealous as well. 

This is such a treasure - a lifetime of great listening!

 

Thanks for the Terumasa Hino recommendation - his work on Youtube sounds fantastic.

It is actually nice that you discovered TBM, I actually have 33 of their original CD that i purchased direct from TBM

in the 1987 while living in the island of New Caledonia In the pacific.

I must say they are my reference CDs and Cherish them as you can not find them in their original form.

Happy listening.

If anyone else finds some of the albums on a Qobuz or Spotify, let us know.

So far, I've looked for about 5 of them and haven't found any.

The sound quality is also fantastic, with a dynamic range score of DR 12. 

I realize that some music doesn't have a lot of dynamic variation and the DR scores aren't high simply because the music itself doesn't have the dynamics. But just think, in our lifetimes that would have been considered only average dynamics, with many rock and jazz albums surpassing it. Now it is considered outstanding.

I used to buy audio equipment from C.C. Poon, a wonderful Chinese gentleman who used to operate Monarchy Audio out of San Francisco.  He also designed the company's products, such as the NM24 Tube DAC and Line Amp, all of which were great values.  Anyway, I developed a friendship over time with Mr. Poon and, one day, he offered to send me a bunch of high-resolution music he had collected over time.  One of the CDs was "The Super Extended Resolution Sound of TBM," mastered by the inestimable Tohru Kotetsu.  I have the CD burned to an SSD on my Roon Nucleus.  While the music is not exactly my cup of tea, I listen to the tracks from time to time, marveling at the production values.  I noted that the CD is available from some sellers on Amazon but it costs a pretty penny.

Update... I now had a chance to sample a few of these and have to say I am dumbfounded how great they are. Musically impeccable, the best of Japanese Jazz there is really. Sonically, there isn't one single dud here, they are all A+++++ titles with resolution and dynamic range that you won't believe comes from CD.

 

My next mission is to source all of these on vinyl, a few of which I already have... #stunning

 

Thanks for posting about these Chris!!!

No worries, mate!  The older they get, the smarter you become.  Ours are now 38 and 41, and (if we interpret them correctly) it seems that my wife and I may not be quite as dumb as we used to be.

I can't wait to get smarter. At 7 years old, my daughter has pretty much concluded I'm a dunce.

Thanks, Chris--I just ordered Moon Ray.  Pricey, as you know, but could be priceless!
