In his review of the Ultra DAC in Stereophile John Atkinson mentioned a CD given to him of Evelina Vorontsova playing Rachmaninoff. He thought it was very well recorded and performed so I took a flier and ordered it from Martin Muziek in the Netherlands. At 20 Euros it wasn't cheap but it's worth every penny. I don't own a better recording of piano music and it's "only" redbook. Just goes to show what proper mics and recording engineering can get from 16/44. And it doesn't hurt that the young lady can play the piano.

Only with your tacit encouragement Altus.
Thanks for the tip re Doug MacLeod.

The two albums suggested from Reference Recordings label are superb and highly recommended to others here. Genre, Acoustic and Steel Blues.

"Theres A Time" 2013
"Exactly Like This" 2015

New album due, "Break The Chain", due for release 9th June, something to look forward to and a back catalogue to research.

For lovers of female vocals, the new Imelda May album "Life Love Flesh Blood" is rather nice...

Thanks VK, I will try IM.

Another new female vocal album well worth a listen is Amilia K Spicer "Wow and Flutter" available on both CD and Vinyl grin Maybe the CD should be titled "Wander and Jitter"

Very good production however at 44/16.

Highly recommended Hector

One more very new Female Vocalist for your enjoyment.

A very impressive first album from Jade Jackson entitled "Gilded" just popped up on Tidal (MQA 88K).

Backed by talented family members, this album should make a big impression, with much more to come in the future, I am certain. wink

Those albums all appeared in the last hours or so. I looked earlier this morning and saw nothing new. Will have to give them a whirl later....

I much prefer both the new look and sound of Imelda May vs the previous rockabilly stuff.

Good album.
