Many, many thanks for this huge offering of intelligent and tasty music. To the non-specialist, buying Jazz albums is very much like buying Burgundy wine or walking blindfolded in the jungle : you never know what to expect, or whom to trust to guide you around. In this last month since I discovered your blog, you have made more for my knowledge of this music than a lifetime of tentative record buying, and taken me far off the (often bland-tasting) beaten path. A lot of the stuff you have posted is extraordinary. I cannot say how grateful I am.

I only signed up so I can leave comments said...

Thanks for the amazing posts. I've been waiting a long time to hear some of the albums you've posted. I've watched some of these discs sell on ebay for way more than I can afford. Your guerrilla re-issues are consistantly impressive.

Hmm, let me first say that I really enjoy your blog. Great work, respect for you and thanks! Now for something different, that is, leblogdepekis, which you are recommending. Nice posts, even great ones.

In theory. They are all (!) at such a crappy bitrate that I can hardly believe it. Music lovers deserve better. I mean, what's the point in ripping Herbie Hancock, or anyone, at 128 kbit/s from CD? Even your standard 192 CBR is way too low bandwidth for complex stuff. Why do this to great music.

Ok, ok, it's all free. So what. It's still supposed to be fun, right? LeblogdePekis is more like annoying.

The positive side is that he/she states rip bandwidth, which I think is a good idea generally, so you do not have to waste resources d/loading if you know you won't be content with the quality.

I feel I have to say this because often I find people offering great pieces encoded with completely insufficient bitrate. Where do you listen to your music? On your notebook's built-in speakers?

Of course my complaint only applies to self-ripped stuff. But I really wonder why someone should care to encode things at constant bitrates below 256 kbit/s or not, at least, with VBR and a 256 or 320-ish upper limit. It makes a huge difference.

A while ago I read an interview in a Hi-Fidelity mag with a member of the German hip hop band "Die fantastischen Vier". I think it was Smudo, stating, after listening to CD and 128 kbit/s versions of the same tracks, that he could not, or barely, hear any difference. We learn from this that Smudo is half deaf apparently. Not an unusual thing among musicians and DJs.

The basic line is that sound quality is not an add-on to music. It IS music. Few people will have a three-star cuisine meal and order a bottle of Heinz with it. With music this seems to be no problem.

Big shout

burgundy wines said...

Burgundy wine
(French: Bourgogne or Vin de Bourgogne) is wine made in the Burgundy region in eastern France.[1] The most famous wines produced here - those commonly referred to as Burgundies - are red wines made from Pinot Noir grapes or white wines made from Chardonnay grapes. Red and white wines are also made from other grape varieties, such as Gamay and Aligoté respectively. Small amounts of rosé and sparkling wine are also produced in the region. Chardonnay-dominated Chablis and Gamay-dominated Beaujolais are formally part of Burgundy wine region, but wines from those subregions are usually referred to by their own names rather than as "Burgundy wines".

Burgundy has a higher number of Appellation d'origine contrôlées (AOCs) than any other French region, and is often seen as the most terroir-conscious of the French wine regions. The various Burgundy AOCs are classified from carefully delineated Grand Cru vineyards down to more non-specific regional appellations. The practice of delineating vineyards by their terroir in Burgundy go back to Medieval times, when various monasteries played a key role in developing the Burgundy wine industry. The appellations of Burgundy (not including Chablis).

Overview in the middle, the southern part to the left, and the northern part to the right. The Burgundy region runs from Auxerre in the north down to Mâcon in the south, or down to Lyon if the Beaujolais area is included as part of Burgundy. Chablis, a white wine made from Chardonnay grapes, is produced in the area around Auxerre. Other smaller appellations near to Chablis include Irancy, which produces red wines and Saint-Bris, which produces white wines from Sauvignon Blanc. Some way south of Chablis is the Côte d'Or, where Burgundy's most famous and most expensive wines originate, and where all Grand Cru vineyards of Burgundy (except for Chablis Grand Cru) are situated. The Côte d'Or itself is split into two parts: the Côte de Nuits which starts just south of Dijon and runs till Corgoloin, a few kilometers south of the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges, and the Côte de Beaune which starts at Ladoix and ends at Dezize-les-Maranges. The wine-growing part of this area in the heart of Burgundy is just 40 kilometres (25 mi) long, and in most places less than 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) wide. The area is made up of tiny villages surrounded by a combination of flat and sloped vineyards on the eastern side of a hilly region, providing some rain and weather shelter from the prevailing westerly winds. T

he best wines - from "Grand Cru" vineyards - of this region are usually grown from the middle and higher part of the slopes, where the vineyards have the most exposure to sunshine and the best drainage, while the "Premier Cru" come from a little less favourably exposed slopes. The relatively ordinary "Village" wines are produced from the flat territory nearer the villages. The Côte de Nuits contains 24 out of the 25 red Grand Cru appellations in Burgundy, while all of the region's white Grand Crus are located in the Côte de Beaune. This is explained by the presence of different soils, which favour Pinot Noir and Chardonnay respectively. Further south is the Côte Chalonnaise, where again a mix of mostly red and white wines are produced, although the appellations found here such as Mercurey, Rully and Givry are less well known than their counterparts in the Côte d'Or. Below the Côte Chalonnaise is the Mâconnais region, known for producing large quantities of easy-drinking and more affordable white wine. Further south again is the Beaujolais region, famous for fruity red wines made from Gamay. Burgundy experiences a continental climate characterized by very cold winters and hot summers. The weather is very unpredictable with rains, hail, and frost all possible around harvest time. Because of this climate, there is a lot of variation between vintages from Burgundy.
