She played Rogers Arena in here in Vancouver back in August 2011. Wish that I could have been there for it, but it just wasn't in the cards at the time.

Ha ha, yeah, I love the lyrics on that one. That's one of her older songs that finally made it onto an album. I fell in love with the live version I had. Not the best sound quality, and of course the studio version is a lot more polished, but you can tell how much fun she has with the audience when she's singing it.

Kruncher:

Most SACDs are hybrids now & have CD Layer, 2CH layer & Multi Channel Layer.

I play mine in only 2 CH mode through my tube amp to my M2s & EP-400 using the Speaker (high Level) Inputs on the sub.

The quality varies depending on the mix & original recording medium, but overall SACDs are generally very good to stunning...

TAM, since you like Blues try and catch the jazz.fm Blues show with Danny Marks on Saturdays at 2000 EST. He is a great host and knows, plays and loves the stuff.

If you love the blues,ya gotta listen to Saturday Night Blues with Holgar Peterson. Holgar runs an Indie blues label, Stony Plain Records and does this Saturday night program. He has interviewed all the greats and you just don't know what you are going to get from one show to the next.

I usually end up tuning into that by chance if I'm driving somewhere on a Saturday. You're right though, it's very good.

That's how I started out Murph. I love that he covers such a range of artists from the up and coming to the classics. The guy seems to have access to anybody he cares to interview and those are as enjoyable as the music he covers.

I do not listen to big bands. I especially like women vocalists. This is my taste and along those lines here are some stuff to listen too.

...

- Melody Gardot. I just discovered her and new The Absence album. Very distinctive vocals and sound.
- Diana Krall. Lots of stuff. Some of my favorite songs are Temptation, Cry Me A River, The Look Of Love, So Nice.
- Madeleine Peyroux. Very distinctive vocals. I love her early stuff, albums Dreamland and Careless Love in particular. When I first discovered her I was totaly smitten.


We went to a concert featuring all three of these ladies on the same bill and it was terrific. It was in a park with a small pond in front of the stage. A couple a ducks landed and started quacking in the middle of one of Dianna Kraal's songs. She stopped playing and said "Do you mind I'm trying to work here".
