        @DigMe In terms of DEK I think Elisabeth Harnik is just FANTASTIC. I feel she takes control and runs with her ideas and manages to get the other two to join her in what I hear as almost manic runs over the piano. There's a sense of urgency that I really enjoy on all three albums.

        @DigMe Also, the way Didi Kern goes within the music and then steps out of it to go in a different direction is just exciting to follow.
        But I'd say most essentially I love the unexpected, and these three albums are packed with just that.

      Another 20 Blue Note titles found and purchased. My BN collection is almost complete. Another 20ish titles and a long time project is done!

        Indeed. But his work on Blue Note needs to be seen in the light of what was and what was to come. If I'm not mistaken they got a Grammy for the live albums they did in Sweden (Live at the Golden Circle, vol1 -2.)
        Check out James Blood Ulmers album with Ornette; Tales Of Captain Black. That's some great great music

        I need to listen to the Live at The Golden Circle albums again. Last time I was listening to them I wasn't feeling the energy. Coulda just been me. I have them both. The Shape of Jazz to Come is probably one of my all time fave jazz studio albums though I don't believe that was Blue Note.

      So...I know you're traveling, but curious about which plugin you prefer: NX or CanOpener? I'm assuming NX, but I hope you can hear how much coloration there is next to CanOpener.

        @Azteca Back home, will post in synergy thread tomorrow. I've got a few more things to try, there's a new beta out from Goodhertz. It's a bit tricky given the fact that I use more plugins than just the 'angle' or stage treatment from NX and CO, but I hear what you're saying about coloration. Give me a bit more time and I'll let you know :)

        She also has a pub suggestion. Grafton Arms on Grafton Way, although she hasn't been there for a while. There are also lots of little restaurants of all kinds on Charlotte Street.

        It's because 2.5mm trrs is a pain to use. I was thinking of making myself one, but looks so small.

        You are. When Dante went to "Purgatory" he found Virgil. Virgil guided him to the light. For some that is heaven, for some that is the glow of tubes and music.

        @The Alchemist I think the late 1950s CCa is the best I've heard Mjolnir2. The 396a is a great tube for Mjolnir2, and better than many CCa's I've heard. Can't say if it's better than these pairs though.

    I'm an avid jazz fan and passionate cd collector that came through the gates of HellFi, spent all my monies on USB, went very deep into praising right about everything, writing reviews, buying the stuff and the shit......until one day I just couldn't do it anymore.
    I'm currently trying to get some salvation by spending time here and by trying to prevent people from buying into the nervosa.
    I'm also aspiring to be a strong counter force in the current tube price inflation that is effectively standing in the way of more people hearing nice vintage tubes. I do that by digging up old stock cheap and shipping to people FOC or at least cost neutral.

    I'm traveling all around Europe for work so feel free to reach out, I'd be happy to meet up for coffee or jazztalk :)
