Not sure if this is Jazz by a pop star, or just Jazz, or "easy listening". Whatever this Linda Ronstadt recording genre is, I've had 8 or 10 of her records on the shelf for a while and finally got curious.

This one sounds - imho - just amazing with the DUAL 1229/Soundsmith Otello, TAD60 with Tung-Sol 6550 reissues, & 604-8G's.

Sublime vocals, smooth, crisp highs, and authoritative tight lows. Exactly why I love this combination so much.

Linda Ronstadt and the Nelson Riddle Orchestra - What's New; Elektra/Asylum 1983 - 60260.

Ambient Jazz maybe?

Got here listening to other stuff Mathias Eick has been involved with.

Lambchop (arguably the most consistently brilliant and unique American group to emerge during the 1990s. Their unclassifiable hybrid of country, soul, jazz, and avant-garde noise seemed at one time or another to drink from every conceivable tributary of contemporary music, its Baroque beauty held together by the surreal lyrical wit and droll vocal presence of frontman Kurt Wagner.) have a new one out.

I don’t remember how I stumbled upon this artist, Vanessa Fernandez, but it’s been recently, maybe a month ago and I haven’t been able to forget her music, voice and wow factor. Take Ricki Lee Jones, Etta James and Linda Ronstadt and roll ‘em up into one, throw in your favorite blues singer for flavor. She’s that unique. I’ve listened to this album so much in the past two weeks, streaming, I decided to buy the DSD256 and use this album to compare 44.1 to DSD but more on that later. Purchased from Native DSD, worthwhile reading some of their philosophy and perusing their content offerings. (no affiliation)

There is some John Zorn that is unlistenable and then there is some John Zorn that I really enjoy.

This one is on the enjoy side.

She was very popular at Axpona, I considered grabbing her new SACD there but never made it back to the marketplace.

That’s probably where I heard her. It’s one of the best albums I’ve purchased in a long time. Very familiar feel and rhythms with a very unique presentation.

I like her version of Be Thankful For What You've Got, but not as much as I like Massive Attacks version.

Dub, reggae, jungle, hip-hop along with Black Sabbath and Clash/Willie Williams covers.

Hard to believe we used to have an eclectic radio station in Detroit (WDET) where this music was played alongside jazz, blues, folk, country, etc.
