I always did like Carrie Underwood. She just seems so down to earth, modest, and a good singer.

I was just introduced to a lady named Morgan James. This might be just a touch thin, depending upon your individual system. The recording is incredibly open, and love the percussion.

That Wes is great. The SQ is far better than the video. I'd never seen him play on video before, so I didn't know he played only with his thumb - explains his articulation. Nice to see Mabern on video. He was my mentor's (James Williams) mentor. Both from Memphis.

Here is an interesting piece with a violin sound I have never heard before. Lettice is one talented lady. Recording quality is pretty good as well.

Buddy turned me on to this great album.

 Artist: Distance, Light & Sky
 Album: Casting Nets

 Superbly recorded.The whole album is a gem.

this youtube doesn't do them justice but you'll get the gist.

Here is an interesting group and nice quality recording. Besides established talent, I enjoy new talent coming forth with their hopes and enthusiasm displayed.

From their bio:
Quote
The musical style presented by Avalon Jazz Band is inspired by the sort of jazz played in Paris in the 1930s and 40s, especially by the Hot Club de France.

Enjoy.

Another one by Avalon Jazz Band called Caravan. This recording is so transparent, so natural, it is startling. Really a nice test for one's system.

Here is some percussion. This can be quite demanding on the system, so please be careful.

And some piano from Fan-Ya Lin. Open, natural, huge sound stage. Hearing one cough sends chills, so natural.
