Art Pepper Meets the Rhythm Section: that is because he plays with Miles Davis' old rhythm section consisting of Philly Joe Jones (drums), Red Garland (piano) and Paul Chambers (bass). It is a superb recording, in every way!

One of my favorites. Great music, great recording. Amazing sound. Pepper didn't know the players and basically found out about the session when he walked in. Shows what a great soloist and an experienced and talented rhythm section can do at the drop of a hat. 

Roy DuNaan was a great engineer. Simple works: https://www.stereophile.com/interviews/402roy/index.html

Thanks for the link!!!

Recording is stunning for a 1957 album. Those people knew how to get things right. 

Art Pepper was plagued by his drug abuse. I read once that he recorded an album in the morning and had to begin to service his sentence in the afternoon. Nevertheless, a fantastic sax man at eye level with Gerry Mulligan and Stan Getz!

I recently started listening to one complete album from start to finish every evening. It's really great to sit down, no Internet, no phone, no iPhone, no i-anything and close my evening out with uninterrupted music. There's nothing like closing out each day on a great note, no pun intended.

 

I want to start this thread for people interested in doing the same thing. Listening to an album every evening and posting simply the artist and album information. Doesn't have to be a picture or the cover or a link or anything. It's more about enjoying this wonderful hobby.

 

I'll start with my Album of the Evening for tonight:

 

Artist: Boston

Album: Boston

 

Wow this is crazy. I had an itch to post to this thread tonight and I’m listening to the same album I kicked the thread off with. 

 

Boston.

I decided to join you this evening, streaming on Tidal right now as I don't own very much classic rock at all.  You know, I am not sure I have played this album in 20 or so years.  I am pleasantly surprised my high end/resolving HP rig is not butchering it.  "all I want is to have my peace of mind"  LOL!

Hey MQA, if it is not all $voodoo$, show us the math!

Brad Delp’s vocals are amazing.

Yep, everything in the mix is sounds good - obviously well recorded/engineered originally. I am playing it at higher SPL than I should but it sounds real clear and distortion free.  The low distortion Focal Clear HP's am using help of course.  Everything is "right there" in the mix,  it is a bit bright, and everything is "forward" in that wall of sound sort of way - wish there was some nuance to the mix but it was mixed for playback in cars first and foremost no doubt...

Hey MQA, if it is not all $voodoo$, show us the math!

If you do not listen opera often, do not waste your time for inferior sopranos...

Her political taste may be questionnable, I still like her voice. 

 

That said, overall this production is a bit heavy for my taste.

Ok, let's put aside her tastes (if there are any), the singing in a best case is... mechanical. There is nothing behind the sound, no substance, only emptiness. I had exactly the same feeling long before the war and her support of it. Even though she is Ukrainian.

At least we can agree she doesn’t live up to the hype

Not a very original one, this evening. But imho one of the best albums I know.

Doesn’t have to be original, as long as you like to listen to it. Besides, this is probably one of the top jazz albums ever released!
