Article: The Q Sessions, Straight From The Studio Pure PCM Recording Available On Qobuz


Recommended Posts

Awesome!  I love this because they're turning the tables--they're likely to deliver a better stream than would have been available on a traditional CD.

 

Also, McBride is amazing live.  Most bass solos are snoozers--his are great.  He's at the Vanguard for a week every November or December (I cant quite remember)--worth the trip to NYC!

Indeed, I have seen him many times live. He is fantastic. Saw Ray Brown live once in the 90’s. They are very similar live, which is really saying something.

Of course, I do find it curious that with a release produced by and done for Qobuz...the credits info is woefully incomplete.

Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

Secondary Listening: Server with Audiolense RC>RPi4 or analog>Matrix Element i Streamer/DAC (XLR)+Schiit Freya>Kii Three .

Bedroom: SBTouch to Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Setup.
Living Room/Kitchen: RPi 3B+ running RoPieee to a pair of Morel Hogtalare. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

It seems to really well recorded....my problem is that it is what I call Free Form jazz...different band members just doing solos they could never play the same twice ....The Jazz I most like is called Smooth Jazz or what I call Structured Jazz.  Each song has a beginning.... middle... and end and they can play the same song again ...it got direction and actual music written for each instrument....Free form jazz sounds to me like each band member just makes stuff up as they go sometimes solo and sometimes with other members....

 

The best example of this type of Structured Jazz can be heard on numerous albums from a group called The Rippingtons!

 

Their latest album rocks...check it on Qobuz..

Was it recorded using Pro tools? Did Qobuz have any say in the recording process? Thanks!

I would prefer the use of a Tenor sax. Other than that, superb on all levels,

While it sounded good initially I find it fatiguing, did a waveform analysis and you can see the dynamic range has been reduced, also the spectral plot is not clean. A real missed opportunity IMO as the music is great.
