We Get Requests
This was an amazimg 1964 Verve LP, featuring Canadian pianist Oscar Peterson and bassist Ray Brown. Now FIM has brought it back on a K2 Compact Disc (which appears to be xrcd in all but name, with silver foil rather than aluminum. Gorgeous music, rendered with great fidelity..

All We Need to Know
All you need to know is that this is the new long-awaited album from jazz singer Margie Gibson! Her Sheffield recording, Say It With Music, has long been a best-seller, and also a staple of our equipment reviews. We're already using this terrific recording in our reviews. And to order her original Sheffield album, click here.

Ba just keeps.reinventing herself. Hailed as her best album since Sources, it features this Canadian-Brazilian-French singer in softer, more intimate songs, some of them romantic, but others -- as with Sources -- touching the countless facets of human rights. A must for all those who, like us, love Ba.

Ba (pronounced bee-ya) is a stunning young singer from Brazil who lives in France. She sings in Portugese, French and English, and tears your heart out. Would she be as mesmerizing without the clear, widerange, glowing sound? It's one of those recordings you hear and you and go out and grab it.

We couldn't believe it: at an absurdly low price, a huge collection of classical music on 50 CDs. We listened with a jaundiced ear. Might these be old mono recordings? No, they're all in stereo, and better than pretty good...mostly 10th row centre in a good hall, just the way we like it. Surely the artists would be third rate? No, they are all respectable, and many are excellent. Then the music choice would be biased toward the saccharine? No, it's just about the selection we would have made had we been putting together a package like this. If you have few or no classical recordings and you've been thinking you would like to discover the world of the classics, this is for you. It will enrich your life! Even if you have a fair collection already, you'll be surprised by what's on this 50 CD set.
