Shostakovich: Jazz Suites - Kuchar        (11 of 11 found this review helpful)
  Review by beardawgs May 20, 2005

The only thing missing here is any information about the recording. It sounds dangerously close to pure DSD, but even if itís 96 kHz itís one of the best Iíve ever heard.

  Review by mwagner1962 May 18, 2005
