Jacintha - Autumn Leaves: The Songs of Johnny Mercer (1999) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Jacintha
Title: Autumn Leaves: The Songs of Johnny Mercer
Genre: Jazz, Vocal Jazz, Straight-ahead, Mainstream jazz, Smooth Jazz
Label: © Groove Note Records
Release Date: 1999
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit
Source: DSD64 (converted at KORG AudioGate 2.3.3 / DSD Filter Sharp Roll-off -3dB/42kHz / TPDF Diter)
Duration: 01:00:40
Recorded by Michael C. Ross at Cello Studios, Hollywood, CA, October 3 and 4th, 1999

The Groove Note Records team of Joe Harley (producer), Mike Ross (engineer) and Ying Tan (executive producer) join forces once again to orchestrate the second release from the label's first artist Jacintha. Autumn Leaves is a collection of twelve songs from Johnny Mercer.
'Autumn Leaves' finds Jacintha in excellent form and, once again, delivering several strong performances on many of the songs. One of the highlights of the album is the title track which finds Jacintha singing in the original French intro and first verse as well as the later Johnny Mercer English lyrics.
We weren't the only ones impressed with Jacintha's vocal prowess, she also caught the attention of Bordertown Pictures (Touchstone Pictures) and a team arrived during the recording session to capture a brand new version of the Grammy-award winning song 'Here's To Life.' With Jacintha featured on vocals and the backing of Kei Akagi (piano), Teddy Edwards (tenor sax), Larance Marable (drums), Joe La Barbera (drums) and Darek Oles (bass) the musicianship on the recording is fantastic. Artie Butler, the Grammy winning composer of 'Here's To Life' was also in attendance and played the Hammond B-3 organ on the track! The song was featured in the opening title sequence for the Ron Shelton film 'Play It To The Bone.'
'Play It To The Bone,' by Touchstone Pictures (a division of the Disney Corp.,) is directed by Ron Shelton (Bull Durham, Tin Cup, Blaze, White Men Can't Jump) and stars Antonio Banderas, Woody Harrelson and Lolita Davidovich. The film was released nationwide on January 14, 2000.
The album was recorded live direct to 2-track and was mastered using Sony's new Direct Stream Digital (DSD) process by Bernie Grundman in Hollywood to produce an album of true audiophile quality sound.

Henri Herz - Piano Concerto No. 2 - Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, Howard Shelley (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Henri Herz (1803-1888)
Artist: Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, Howard Shelley
Title: The Romantic Piano Concerto ~ 66: Henri Herz - Piano Concerto No 2 & other works
Genre: Classical
Label: © Hyperion Records
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: hyperion-records
Duration: 65 minutes 6 seconds
Recorded: May 2014, Federation Concert Hall, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia

Henri Herz—as much a phenomenon in 1830s Paris and for the ensuing decades in America as he has been derided since the curtain fell on his world of sparkle—wrote eight piano concertos. One is lost, so it is for the final time in this mini series that Howard Shelley and the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra here get to put on their finest dancing shoes and perform the Piano Concerto No 2 in C minor (the one with which Herz conquered America in 1846) and three extended fantasies.

Grateful Dead - 30 Trips Around the Sun: The Definitive Story 1965-1995 (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Grateful Dead
Title: 30 Trips Around the Sun: The Definitive Story 1965-1995
Genre: Rock
Label: © Grateful Dead Productions | Rhino Entertainment
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit
Source: PonoMusic
Duration: 04:37:07
Recorded: 1965–1995


The Grateful Dead have an unparalleled gift for creating full-fledged pop culture events out of thin air, and it’s a gift they’ve demonstrated more than once this year. You may recall how the band had fans reaching into their wallets and preordering a live album documenting concerts that hadn’t even taken place yet (we’re referring, of course, to the audio document of the “Fare Thee Well” shows), and that’s certainly impressive enough in and of itself. To really get an idea of the definition of Dead-ication, though, consider that the announcement about the impending release of 30 TRIPS AROUND THE SUN, a limited-edition 80-disc box set of 30 previously-unreleased live shows – that’s one for each year between 1965 and 1995 – with a price tag of $699.98 - resulted in the set selling out before it’s even scheduled to ship.
Of course, we know that not every Deadhead has the kind of budget required to order a copy of an 80-disc box set, and while we can’t do a lot about the price tag of that particular collection, there’s a consolation prize of sorts that’s in stores today: a four-disc, 30-track compilation which features one song from each of those previously-released live shows.

Recorded: New York by Patrick Dillett and in France at Black Box Studio by David Odlum; Additional recording in Chicago at The Loft by Tom Schick, and in Dublin by Karl Odlum


The new album is his first in over three years and follows 2012’s solo debut Rhythm & Repose, which Billboard hailed as “Hansard at his most engaging,” while The Wall Street Journal furthered, “Hansard’s distinguishing trait as a songwriter is a heavy-handed earnestness.”
Didn’t He Ramble was produced by Thomas Bartlett (The National, Sufjan Stevens), a frequent collaborator of Hansard’s, and Grammy winner and former Frames band-mate David Odlum (Paloma Faith, Tinariwen). The album, which was recorded in New York, Dublin, Chicago and France, is Hansard’s most intimate and elegant record since his work in Once and features guest appearances by John Sheahan (Dubliners), Sam Beam (Iron and Wine) and Sam Amidon.

Gary Clark Jr. - The Story of Sonny Boy Slim (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Gary Clark Jr.
Title: The Story of Sonny Boy Slim
Genre: Blues Rock, Neo-Soul, R&B, Hard Rock, Modern Electric Texas Blues
Label: © Warner Bros. Records
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: PonoMusic
Duration: 53:41


Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and virtuoso guitarist Gary Clark Jr. releases his second full-length studio album, entitled The Story of Sonny Boy Slim, on Warner Bros. Records. The Story of Sonny Boy Slim is the uncanny evolution of an artist embracing his roots with a rarified grace, style, and an inextinguishable passion which reflects his vision as a songwriter, groove master, and the vocal force of nature he has become, while his guitar virtuosity already speaks (quite voluminously) for itself.
The record was written, produced, arranged by Clark, who also plays most of the instruments, with assistance from his long-time live soundman, Bharath “Cheex” Ramanat and Jason Sciba. Backing vocals are provided by his sisters Shawn and Savannah Clark. The album was recorded by Ramanath and Sciba.

Recorded live in Carmel, California, September 19, 1955

Esteemed jazz pianist Erroll Garner will be the focus of an upcoming 60th anniversary tribute from Sony Legacy. The Complete Concert By the Sea will be released on Sept. 18, 2015 -- the 60th anniversary of the original live concert produced in Carmel, Calif.
The three-CD box set, being released jointly by Sony Legacy and Octave Music Publishing Corp., is available for pre-order on Amazon. In addition to 11 previously unreleased tracks, the package includes the digitally restored and remastered edition of the original edited 1956 Columbia release. Bonus material -- featuring interviews with Garner and namesake trio members Denzil DaCosta Best and Eddie Calhoun plus announcer commentary -- round out the offering.
In making the announcement today, Garner’s birthday, Sony Legacy president Adam Block states, “Concert By the Sea is a marvelous, mystical album that has been allowed to dangle on the periphery of broader recognition for far too long. This is a significant release -- critically important to the preservation of one of the truly epic moments in live recorded performances.”
Liner note writers include jazz pianist Geri Allen, who also produced the complete live concert recording with Grammy Award-winning producer Steve Rosenthal. Allen additionally serves as director of jazz studies at the University of Pittsburgh, which will be the permanent home of the Erroll Garner Archive.
The original recording of Concert By the Sea helped foster the start of the longstanding Monterey Jazz Festival. To mark that historical note, the 58th Monterey Jazz Festival will present a tribute performance on the album’s Sept. 18 release date. Among the performers will be Jason Moran, Jimmie Cobb and Allen.
Garner was an influential piano virtuoso known for his swing playing and his most famous composition, the jazz standard "Misty." The Pittsburgh native died in 1977.

Don Henley - Cass County {Deluxe Edition} (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Don Henley
Title: Cass County
Genre: Country, Pop Rock, Singer/Songwriter
Label: © Capitol Records
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit

Duration: 01:01:52

Cass County is Don Henley's fifth studio album and first solo album in 15 years. Named for the northeastern Texas county in which Henley was raised, Cass County is a 16-track deluxe album released through Capitol Records.
Cass County was produced by Don Henley and Stan Lynch, who also co- wrote 11 of the songs on the album, and represents both Henley’s roots and the next stop on his creative journey. “I was born and raised in Texas. I'm a Southerner and a Texan. So this is a natural progression for me. It's who I am and where I come from,” says Don Henley.
Recorded primarily in Nashville, Tennessee, and Dallas, Texas, the album includes guest appearances from Merle Haggard, Miranda Lambert, Mick Jagger, Martina McBride, Jamey Johnson, Alison Krauss, Vince Gill and Dolly Parton. When asked about making the album, Henley exclaimed, “I can truthfully say, I enjoyed making this record more than any record I’ve made in my career because of the people who participated. John Sebastian was dead right in 1965 or 1966 when he wrote that song ‘Nashville Cats.’ It’s still true all these years later. There are some amazing musicians here.”
