As usual,thanks for the informative links. I have to question your remark re:Portrait In Jazz;having only a "miserable..effort" to listen to since 1987. You're forgetting the release on DCC Compact Jazz,mastered by Steve Hoffman-it's been out of print for some years. I'm curious about a comparison to the newly-issued version. Your thoughts? And,by the way,for a TRULY terrible cd issue,put on Evans "Explorations". A beautiful session that for some reason-poor original recording,bad digital remastering?- sounds HORRIBLE on my 1987(Fantasy)disc. Maybe they'll get THAT date right...this time.
