No I just mean that G. Martin was important musically and helped them develop.
Kinda agree…great sound, so-so (dare I say bland) music for some of the forum favourites I’ve heard
(Pharoah Sanders/Floating Points springs to mind, or Voices by Max Richter…yawn…)
Newly released videos show how a truly minimalist recording set up can ensure optimum Sound Quality;
This is what they call ‘One Mic’;
and this is ‘One Mic +’
I don’t understand why they record only Carmen Gomes. There are so many great women and men singers, be it jazz, blues, or soul. Why are they never recorded in audiophile albums. It is a real mystery for me.
I tried to listen to a lot of artists in the Sound Liaison catalog, or other audiophile sites. I found no one artist that engaged me emotionally.
I feel similar. Have often caught myself chasing ‘audiophile’ recordings to see what my average system can do with quality recordings and miss out on enjoying the music i like. To be honest, i have probably wasted way too much time doing that.
