    I may order this one. Sounds good.

    I like Holly Cole Temptation on SACD. Listening to Lauren White At Last now and love her breathy, sexy rendition of Blue Bayou.

    Excellent SACD.

    Billie Holiday - All Or Nothing At All

    Label: Analogue Productions (Verve)
    Genre: Jazz
    Product No.: CVRJ 8329 SA
    Format: Hybrid Mono SACD





    After the publication of her autobiography, Lady Sings The Blues, Billie Holiday was doing good business in clubs in what turned out to be a last burst of stardom. We cannot know why she stopped recording for Norman Granz after January 1957 - but the present collection is a magnificent culmination of her years with the producer. This Hybrid SACD plays in both CD and SACD players, as well as all SACD-compatible DVD players.

    Originally released in 1955.

    Billie Holiday, vocals
    Larry Bunker, drums
    Harry "Sweets" Edison, trumpet
    Barney Kessel, guitar
    Red Mitchell, bass
    Joe Mondragon, bass
    Jimmy Rowles, piano
    Alvin Stoller, drums
    Ben Webster, tenor saxophone

    Rebecca Pidgeon - The Raven


    And this test disk is awesome- Various Artists - Ultimate Demonstration Disc

    This is another excellent SACD- Christy Baron - Retrospective

    This is an excellent Sax Cd- Amazon.com: Blues For The Saxophone Club (DXD 24-bit master): Music

    This disc of Handel arias is wonderful in every way--music, audio, performance.
