Chet Baker: Chet        (2 of 3 found this review helpful)
  Review by vonwegen November 20, 2004

I have to disagree with the previous review, but only because this SA-CD uses the original stereo mixdown tape instead of the 3-track master tapes. Baker & co. sound terrific, special kudos to sax meister Pepper Adams, whose playing and tone are breathtaking in Super Audio & to Herbie Mann for his ... more

  Review by vonwegen November 20, 2004

Have to agree with the previous reviewer--this is a keeper, KrautRock of the finest order.

Rachmaninov: Piano Concertos (complete) - Stephen Hough          (4 of 7 found this review helpful)
  Review by thepilot November 20, 2004

Great recordings and performances (especially the live ones). The Dallas SO has always been a splendid orchestra and here they play like angels, while Litton proves once again, that he is a true "Rachmaninov conductor" that really probes the depths of these wonderful works. Hough plays fantastically ... more
