Try Nefertiti, listen if you like it. This youtube does not do justice to this beautiful composition.

 

 

 

How about Someday My Prince Will Come with Coltrane

I will take a listen to Nefertiti.  If I do end up buying that title, I'm going directly for the MFSL SACD.  I will check out the Coltrane too.  I kind of like Coltrane more than Miles.

 

I'm hoping someday MFSL does my favorite band - The Rolling Stones - on SACD.  Some of their albums, like Sticky Fingers, Exile On Main Street; really aren't done justice by any of the CD masterings they've done.  A lot of folks seem to like the Virgins, but at least with Sticky Fingers, the original Rolling Stones Records/CBS CD sounded the best to me.  For their 60s stuff, a lot of people say the London CD's are better than both ABKCOs.  I thought the ABKCO remasters were ridiculously bright. 

 

Another group I like a lot which I've never seen an audiophile remaster of is Van Halen.  I believe only DCC did their self-titled album years ago.  Not sure how much that group's material would really benefit from it though.

Exactly what do you mean by "I like of it, others not so much."? I assume that you are referring to jazz in general but there are many different styles of jazz so perhaps you might find something to like by simply listening to another style. Swing, Dixieland, bebop, hard bop, modal, modern, avant-garde, smooth, fusion. The list of types of jazz just goes on and on.

You're right.  I should not make such a broad statement without hearing more styles of it.  I specifically meant Miles Davis.  I like some of his albums, other ones I'm not as interested in.

I am sort of the other way around.  Like Miles the best, Coltrane almost that much, and don't care at all for Porter.

This is great! Trombone player (with valves!) is stunning as is Jim Hall and Jimmy Guifre

Bob Brookmeyer is also known for being one of the greatest arrangers in modern jazz. He worked extensively with Gerry Mulligan in the late 1950's and early 1960's and provided many of the great charts for Gerry Mulligan's Concert Band from that time period. Check out this track from this wonderful group. I'm not sure if Brookmeyer did the arrangement for this track but the track is fairly typical of the sound of this group.

 

 

By the way the album this track is taken from is a true classic and well worth a listen.
