Anouar Brahem for me this evening:

Visited today an amazing antique shop in Leiden which is open on Saturdays only. They got a 1973 Moroccan oud. I'm tempted again... 9_9


The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Mark the music.

Started checking it out earlier. Positive first impression indeed!

 

For some reason I do not quite understand I like the avatar he used on the cover of his previous album ;)

But seriously, I did just a quick check of his 2020 one, my (quick!) verdict - some solid straight ahead jazz, I haven't heard anything extraordinary. But like I said it was just a quick listen.

IMHO Grammy Awards are a little like Oscars - not always justified. I personally don't care about them that much. But that's just me.

 

@Musicophile good to see you back!

I gave the previous album a solid 4 stars on my blog, and will review the new one if I find time (not easy these days, my blog has been inactive for weeks now). BTW, Diehl really shines in combination with Cecile McLorin Salvant.

I agree. I rate her high too.

Indeed, awards are very subjective and not the end all measure.

 

I kind of always took the the "continuum" album art to either be a visual to link that title to a "continuous" circle, or ouroboros maybe.  Cheers!

Finally back to reviewing on my blog, starting with this wonderful new Harmonia Mundi release: https://musicophilesblog.com/2020/02/16/isabelle-faust-and-alexander-melnikovs-wonderful-mozart-violin-sonatas-vol-2/

 

Accidentally I checked this album yesterday. Similar impressions. Vol.1 is also very good!

Just received my shipment of these MoFi 2019 SACD remasters, and got them ripped and loaded up. I’ll be listening to these over the next few days, but already loving what I’m hearing!

Did you rip the CD and/or SACD layers?

SACD for now using SACDExtractGUI, so listening to the DSD.

 

Which reminds me - I should rip the CD layer too.

I really wonder why you can't buy these as DSD downloads somewhere. 

 

In any case, jealous and looking forward to your comments on the SQ.
