>>Tonight it was 'Cream, Royal Albert Hall' London, May 2,3,5,6 2005...

What is this -- DVD, CD ?

I really wanted to get down to the NYC Cream concert earlier in the week but no time, no tickets, no money... .no chance. Did anyone hear how the concert went ?

Sorry John, I forgot to specify in my earlier post.

This was the DVD and I enjoyed it very much, if the New York concert was anything like the London concert it should have been very good.

Cream - Royal Albert Hall, London

Right now I'm listening to the first new CD I've personally bought in the last 3 years: Opeth - Blackwater Park.

It's gooood.

Thanks !!

I hadn't realized there was a recent Cream recording available, just wanted to know which aisle I should go looking in -- the DVDs, CDs, or SACDs

I have compared both the CD and the DVD. I thought the DVD was noticably better sounding. The CD sounds compressed and overly bright compared to the DVD. Of course this is just MHO.

Listening to the exotic music of Aram Khachaturian. This is a very inexpensive introduction to him and also note that Tower has a 25% off sale, with free shipping over $20, on all classical and jazz CDs and DVDs going on through Monday.

Indeed, John, I took advantage of that very sale last week. I may have gotten a bit too excited in fact, as I managed to qualify myself (with room to spare) for the free 2nd day delivery...

One new (to me) artist purchased in said binge was Jane Monheit. While her voice is technically excellent, I find that I am missing an aspect that is present in some of the more established "modern" jazz divas like Krall or Sutton. Even my lovely bride commented that she didn't seem to have the same dusky playfulness that always makes the night out at the jazz club so much fun.

Did I just monologue a mini-review? Oh dear God...what's becoming of me?

Don't know if it qualifies as a "mini-review," but I agree with it, whatever it is.

I have a couple of Jane Monheit CDs, including one SACD. I do love her clear bell-like voice. But, though I think she has a better voice than even my favorite, Diana Krall, I'd rather listen to Diana. I think with the right arrangements, and backing tracks, Jane would really shine, and a few of her songs do exactly that. However, all too many of her songs don't.
