The band is Pink Martini, a Jazz / Lounge music. Enjoy!





Thanks Twinster for the heads up on Pink Martini!


Indeed, it is a fine recording - just finished sourcing it in full FLAC and I must say it's quite nice, very nice.

Two current favourites:


Joe Bonamassa - Live From Nowhere In particular

(have linked a couple of youtube clips - real favourites on the MS1is - they're not the actual ones off the album)




And Beth Hart - Live At Paradiso

I love the fact that my Grado 325 Woodies sound like you are there and I just rediscovered how good these albums were recorded.


1) Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms (remasteres)

2) Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense (Remastered)

3) SRV - Couldn't Stand The Weather (Sony - Gold)

Another very good album with excellent recording (as usual from that Band/Artist). Live in Las Vegas by Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds. just amazing on the MS-Pro & Magnum-Ultimate.

Iron Maiden's The Number of The Beast. I had tears in my eyes after I heard 'Hallowed be thy name' with my SR325i.

 The man is more than just a guitarist for the 'Stones and an inventor of a breakfast drink named 'Nuclear Fallout' (sunkist and vodka)


 He came up with this album after 'Talk is Cheap'


 If you ever needed a sub bass test for your Grado's ~ check out 'Words of Wonder' on this album, it's supreme.


 I have listened to this album well over 250 times and counting ~ and I prefer it on my rig with the 325i over the LCD2/HD800

 hooked up to $4000AUD worth of source and head amp.


 "Main Offender, Keith Richards' second solo album, is the most realistic-sounding rock recording I've ever heard.

The guitar work growls and sears, and the drumkit conveys the whack of stick on skin and the kickdrum's quick impact.

There's tremendous space -- width and depth galore -- which is defined by the way each drum strike projects into the recording venue.

If your amps and neighbors are up to it, "Runnin' Too Deep" will communicate the sort of raw power that characterizes live music.

As the liner notes indicate, the material was laid to tape in multiple studios, recorded and mixed by different engineers, and you can easily

tell the difference, which is another reason this CD is a reference: it clearly illustrates the difference between very good and extraordinary

sound....Marc Mickelson"

Holly Cole-Temptation

Muddy Waters- Folk Singer

Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms

AFI-Crash Love

Judas Priest-British Steel

 Scored this today, it's a massive 4 disc set - some of you may remember 'Girl from Ipanema' but it's not the Stan Getz rendition,

 however, it does have a clean example of Sergio Mendes 'Mas Que Nada' which was all the rage as the theme song for the last World Cup of Football.


 Good Brazilian Samba times on the Grado..
