Editorial for May 2011
Published on May 1, 2011
To be one of the AUDIOPHILE AUDITION readers during May who will receive the free Resonance Records jazz Blu-ray concert by the Dado Moroni Trio, you need to register this month using our simple non-intrusive email-protected form Here. We reviewed the Blu-ray Here. The varied program draws from all corners of the jazz liturgy, and Moroni performs on a rich-sounding piano from his homeland, a Fabrioli, reproduced in uncompressed PCM stereo. The winners will be listed below in June.
Here are the lucky winners of the two LINN hybrid SACDs we awarded in our April drawing – Jazz vocalist Ian Shaw and "Trumpet Masques": Brent Wilson, Columbia SC; Mike Long, Hampton Cove AL; Bill Franklin, Harelysville PA; Benjamin Wilkes, Pasadena CA; Chuck Gerlach, Roswell GA; Erich Meyer, Poulsbo WA; Frank Poiesz, Jamison PA; T.M. Tate, Bellevue WA; Chuck Story, Grand River OH; Ed Lindsey, Olympia WA. Be sure to register now for your chance in this month’s drawing.
May 2011 is our 146th issue, and features improved navigation and enhanced appearance. We’re also publishing more and more disc reviews. All of them – usually well over 100! – 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.
