top flight music in IPI/HDTT sonics!
A recording made with impeccable taste, both musical and sonic. For example in this DSD64 the bite of the trombones on track one is strong and punchy, but not too much so (= perfect). Soundstage is wonderful and the instruments really sound like whatever materials are made out of... wood, brass, etc. The jazz flute of Bud Shank (?) is about as good as you'll ever hear on a jazz record. I was an amateur flutist, so I know what it sounds like. Fischer's arrangements are are reminiscent of Gil Evans, and attractively so. His piano solos live up to his reputation, which is saying a lot. A winner.
