Editorial for March 2011


Published on March 1, 2011






To be among the 12 AUDIOPHILE AUDITION readers this month who receive the two Chesky Records hi-res releases, you need to register using our simple non-intrusive email-protected form. The discs are drummer Jimmy Cobb’s Cobb’s Corner with Roy Hargrove on trumpet, and David Chesky’s latest orchestral compositions: Urbanicity and Concerto for Electric Guitar and Orchestra. Both are CD-compatible – the first is a multichannel SACD and the second an HQCD.  Readers who register on the site this month will be selected and sent the two discs in early April and the 12 winners will be listed here at that time.

The lucky winner of the Oppo BDP-93 Universal Network 3D Blu-ray Disc Player – our February drawing/giveaway – is Brendan Gaul of Tempe, AZ.  Congrats Brendan!



EDITORIAL
 
AUDIOPHILE AUDITION began in 1985 as a weekly national radio series hosted by John Sunier, which aired for 13 1/2 years on up to 200 public radio and commercial stations coast to coast. In September 1998 its site for programming information was expanded to the present Internet publication.
 
March 2011 is our 144th issue, and features improved navigation and enhanced appearance. We’re also publishing more and more disc reviews. All of them – usually well over 100! [136 for January!] – are added throughout the month as they are written and received, usually on a daily basis. The most recent reviews appear at the top of each Section Index. The Home Page lists the five latest published reviews, the Section Index lists the past two months of reviews, the Archive goes back to June 1, 2005, and for all reviews by month prior to that you need to click on the Old Archive, which goes back to 2001. The Disc Index lists all past reviews.
