Maybe if I were using Siri, it would have been right.

A UK dealer from whom I’ve bought many Linn items uses Siri. He asked me to send him a picture of my deck once. Siri misunderstood and changed the intended “e” to an unintended “i.”

I’ll keep typing, and playing my vinyl, thanks.

Do you have an unusual accent per chance?

The UK dealer does have an accent, but it’s nothing like Kripke’s. That was a funny sketch though.

I’m listening right now to the first “digitally remastered directly from the original analog tapes” release. I think it’s the best one. The Classic 3SE/NovaHW is as rendering it as well as I can ever remember.


Peer,
If you have the Mobile Fidelity “digitally remastered directly from the original analog tapes”, you do have what I also consider the very best production recording and pressing of Miles's "Sketches in Spain".

As a diehard Miles fan, I once in a while still find recorded music by Miles I have not heard or own. Just recently, last month I was made aware of a recording "Miles in Tokyo 1975". It is Miles only recording with Sam Rivers on Tenor,(no Coltrane, and no Wayne Shorter) along with Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, Tony Williams on drums. I have found and purchased the CD recording of the event, so now the goal is to locate and purchase a vinyl edition of that evening. There are no "new" Miles tunes within the performances, but the addition of Sam Rivers on the tenor does provides a different flavor to the many Miles standards, and Miles was still in a period when he was playing notes on his trumpet that no one else even dared. The hunt for the vinyl record of that event is on!

I’ll have to dig around and do a comparo.

One thing I’ve found since the Kleos arrived is that many albums that I’d considered mediocre have improved. The same phenomenon occurred when I got the Delos.

I listened to the digitally remastered plain vinyl Columbia Jazz Masterpiece version tonight, and I continue to really like this. But other releases are good too.

FWIW, I am not a fan of half speeds, or direct to disk. They were just too hard to master in the case of the half speeds, and too hard to cut in the case of the DtoDs. They just never get the bass to suit me. But ... YMMV.

Hi, new to the forum as a recent purchase of a Classic led me here.

Big jazz and Miles fan. Used to host a jazz show at the local HBC station.

Miles can be a bit hard to keep track of, and I certainly haven't kept track of all the various reissues/compilations/bootlegs etc. But just a correction I feel compelled to make below:

I'm sure you realize, but of course 1975 was well after any of those guys (or a semblance thereof) played with Miles, who by 1970-71 had fully gone into his electric jazz/funk exploration. The Sam Rivers recording dates from 1964, just before the lineup of the "2nd quintet" solidified with Wayne Shorter. The Tokyo 1975 appears to be a radio broadcast just a few days before the live performances that yielded Agharta (maybe my favorite of the electric 70's Miles - the deep groove of "Prelude" is irresitible) and Pangaea. Not long after the Japan tour Miles went into his infamous and self destructive late 70's hiatus from music and emerged in the early 80's playing other people's compositions due to disputes with record companies.

Just didn't want people seeing this and getting a VERY different kind of sound. The Rivers appearance IS on a recording from Tokyo, but simply titled (in current form) Miles In Tokyo. It's also interesting that both Miles & Rivers continued to mine completely different directions than this afterwards, with Rivers taking a more avant garde path.
