    Breaks my heart. He could have been an UBER Jazz Legend. Well, at least we have the catalog that he did leave us.

    Heading to bed soon trying to get on Eastern time as I have to fly to the East coast tomorrow night. Just chilling with www.WUCF.org.
    That station streams in amazing HD compared to most others. Has to be 128k or better. Sounds even higher.

    Although any station that streams on Apple Music is HD compared to others. Apple's streaming parameters require 128 AAC if I'm not mistaken.

    SWMBO is really into Cats. Siamese, actually. She has two. I'm a dog person, but I have to admit, her cats are very affectionate and love nest on your lap and purr when you sit and listen to Jazz. I'll always be a dog person, but I can appreciate why people enjoy cats after spending so much time listening to Jazz with these two Siamese.

    Billy,
    I had to go look. Yes Grundig. Bought it mostly for look! Seems to help reception just setting it near rabbit ears not connected.

    My new audio digs are just as much my cat, Cliffs too. He spends so much time with me there.

    Thanks OG. Yep, I thought that looker was a Grundig Loop. Most use them for AM DX reception, but you can use them for FM HD digital as well. I have had a Jones to get one of these for a while, for my Florida pad. It's flat as a pancake in that state and with ground planes on either side of the land (aka ocean), you can pull AM for thousands of miles.

    Have no clue as to the differences between Danish and Swedish, my second language is German and my chops in it are much less than feeble these days. Your observation made me dig out the album cover to make sure and the home offices of the label were in Copenhagen when it was released.

    Another SteepleChase session (though my copy is a US pressing under the Inner City imprint). Pretty much straight ahead alto blowing by Braxton with the exception of a brief avant duet with NHOP. Bird's Donna Lee is the one track where Braxton pulls out an exotic horn, this time a contrabass clarinet, to rip it up. It's a fun record that makes me want to track down Vol. 1.
