Haven't heard that McCoy Tyner album yet - thanks for the suggestions!  (And the Ellington and Brubeck albums are simply excellent, you have great tastes)

Hey PianoMan, for modern jazz tinklers I like Eliane Elias playing Bill Evans and Diana Krall playing everybody. Of course there's Erroll Garner's "Concert by the Sea" album and just about all of Keith Jarretts live recordings. I say if you learn to play "My Foolish Heart" convincingly, not necessarily technically well but convincingly, you'll have earned your advanced music degree, with honours. Isn't it great that we all can agree that listening to and enjoying music is a good thing?

I have been meaning to get that Coltrane album but haven't done it yet, thanks for the Miles suggestion, I have a couple of his albums and they are pretty good, not as good as Coltrane but good.

 May I also suggest any of Art Blakey's albums, I have 3 of them and they are all excellent.

Art Blakey just rules on these, the percussive clarity of Grados adds so much to his playing. Best drummer ever :)

Well let's make a game out of it:

Favorite jazz/Grado pairing and why.

Album: Milestones by Miles Davis

Grado: RS1i

Why: This quintet (sometimes sextet) is an all star cast and all of their subtle nuances are very easy to hear. Not to mention Philly Jo's multiple drum solos of course!

Milestones is brilliant...I really enjoy Miles in Tokyo with my Magnum X build...the recording is crystal clear and pristine, they do the detail in it beautifully...but it has Tony Williams on drums, not Philly Joe...

I love Eric Dolphy's Last Date on my SR80 pinks...they do everything right on that album...all the way to that last snippet, his quote on listening to music...

Boy you weren't kidding about all star cast...holy moly they threw everything but the kitchen sink at that album. I was reading the review that they have along with most every album they sell on half-price books and the reviewer said, "If you like this you should listen to this other album" "Straight, No chaser" by Thelonius Monk..I like Monk anyway so I ordered that one too. Review to follow once I get to listen.

One stupid non-jazz question. Do any of you use the Grado extention cable for your headphones. Grado says it doesn't degrade the sound at all but I was wanting some opinions of people who really use it. It would sure be handy for me if it works "As advertised" .

I've used mine a few times and never noticed any sort of degradation in SQ.

I use the extension with the lcd x for movies , no serious listening with music, but as best I can tell no significant effect to sq
