Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    No my next build will be flat, this one tilts up to flat so you can plug cables in, or you can unhook it and remove it from the headphone rack. I allowed that braid to stretch and form around an unused board before mounting it on a working board. It is far enough away from any components that nothing can touch it. I may build one with stacked Coaster amps just to see if it can be done. The least expensive build is the 8-ball provided you can get one open. Once I figure something out, I want a new challenge, I get bored easily otherwise.

    Another Jazz Recommendation...

    Album: M.F. Horn Two
    Artists: Maynard Ferguson

    Well, let's take another stroll down memory lane with a classic from 1972. Maynard Ferguson (or 'Ole Silicone Lips, as I call him) was an incredible trumpet player and an idol of mine, having played much of his music as a teen (I played trumpet in a Jazz Big Band). Bringing a Jazz flair to pop and music of the time, M.F. Horn 2 is a brass-knuckles, power-packed, fasten your seat-belts, trumpet screeching ride!! Critics and others may not consider this his best album, but it is certainly one of my favorites.

    * James Taylor's Country Road is my favorite cut!!
    ** If you like it and want some more, check out 'Primal Scream' and 'M.F. Horn 3'.

    Available on Tidal and Spotify.

    MF Horn 2 is one of my all-time favorite albums.

    My son played jazz trumpet in high school as well but luckily he decided on computer science rather than a career in music. The university he attended has two levels and you had better be exceptional to get into the upper level.

    I will have to check out MF Horn 2 - is it anything like Bill Chase? I like early seventies horn jazz/rock fusion.

    Maynard and Chase are similar, with chase being a bit more slanted toward pop.

    Maynard was also a huge favorite of mine during my high school days. I played Baritone Sax in my high school Jazz Big Band. I recall being blown away when he and his band were in concert at a local high school in suburban Maryland in the middle 70's. "Hey Jude" was one of their signature pieces and in concert the band would come down off the stage and position themselves all around the auditorium to play. Talk about surround sound...

    I was fortunate enough to catch Maynard in concert a couple of times in the 70s. l Also caught a Doc Severinsen concert and a Buddy Rich concert.

    The 70s were great era with Jazz greats. I was fortunate to catch a few big idols of mine.

    Not big band, but Weather Report with Jaco Pastorius was another memorable one. :smile_phones:

    Another Jazz Recommendation...

    Album: A Twist of Rit
    Artists: Lee Ritenour (w/ Dave Gruisin, Dave Weckl, Ernie Watts and Jonh Beasley)

    If you love the sultry tones of electric guitar supported by a renowned cast of Jazz musicians, then you've hit the mother-lode. A very well recorded studio effort by a legend in Jazz, bringing new life to some of his past work and introducing a few new works to boot. I think you'll like this one.

    Later this week I hope to post photos of a Coaster vessel that will be very suitable for those just using the boards as coasters, as well as being a novel way to house the amplifier versions. It will probably require several photos to show the entire effect so most likely I will just post a link to the coaster thread when this happens. Anyone should be able to accomplish the housing in a few simple steps.

    I'm afraid you are way overestimating my abilities. :wink:

    This thread could use a sub thread just for all of the music suggestions.
