While maybe not good enough for “purists” and usually lacking metadata those BnF Collection releases are a great bargain for enjoyable listening :slight_smile: .
And the analogue-to-digital conversion seems to be done very professionally. So vinyl may not get much better in Roon than this. :wink:

Stephen Thomas Erlewine claims there’s “not enough focus to make the album itself (Aladdin Sane) a classic.”

I beg to differ.

I’m fairly new to Jazz so still discovering artists and records–a joy in Roon + Tidal. Listening again to “Gentle Ben” by Ben Webster I followed the pianist (Tete Montoliu) link to discover a great catalog of music. This one hooked me from the start:

Terrific live trio date. I could single someone out, but all these guys are masters of the craft, so just lean back and enjoy the synergy. (I sure miss Abercrombie.)

This album gets better every time I listen to it…

Jarrett

It does. I’m even more stunned by this one though:

Yeah, “La Fenice” is one of my favourite albums this year. And the year is almost over :grinning:
