The ECM debut from Mr. Maestro and company. A match made in heaven.
An inspired set from the trumpeter/flugelhornist/composer. Not only some original material here but also an interesting (and well-done) collection of standards. Released in 2007.
Simply .. beautiful music. Nice review on All About Jazz.
A nice straight-ahead jazz set from this fantastic sax player with Kenny Barron, Ira Coleman, and Lewis Nash. Released in 1994.
I’m fast becoming a fan of this alto sax player. This wonderful tribute album showcases Mr. Cramer’s beautiful tone.
An interesting background story of the Cramer/Criss connection can be found here.
After skipping 1.3.0, which brought the LDAC codec (among other tweaks) to the ES100, I decided to apply the latest update via my Mac mini. Fortunately, Radsone has improved the instructions for entering DFU mode and it worked perfectly.
Once finished with the update, the LDAC codec was automatically selected and I must say, it sounds fantastic paired with my Pixel 2. For those unfamiliar, LDAC supports 24/96 over Bluetooth. Bravo!
Mr. Cramer’s tone is just superb on this wonderfully moody set. Slow paced (mostly) and intricate, this album is perfect for a late night listen. Released in 2002.
