    A great interview with Emma Jean Thackray from Stereophile reviewer Ken Micallef.

    Looking forward to this release - "The Hands of Time' by Weedie Braimah and friends:

    Heads up PFM jazzers:

    Lady Blackbird - Black Acid Soul is only available as a limited edition on vinyl so get it now while you still can. They say it won't be re-pressed. I'd suggest buying the black version as there have been reports that the coloured vinyl can be noisy. It's an awesome LP. What a voice.

    That's great! I missed this and the vinyl seems to be sold out everywhere. Hoping for a re-press.

    I agree this is excellent and can confirm the coloured vinyl is sadly noisy. Got a black copy to replace and thats much better.

    If word of mouth gets round though I suspect they will end up repressing the standard edition. If she was a UK artist I could have seen this on next years Mercury Award list

    I've just asked for a replacement for my blue vinyl copy. Hopefully the next one is quieter...

    Still a great album though.

    I saw a Steve Guttenberg review of a Denafrips dac and he mentioned Nik Bartsch. I wouldn't say I'm a jazz fan, but I love the Conundrum album!

    Annoyingly they’ve started separating the tax out so you get a shock when checking out. No, it isn’t £22.49, and the postage is more than I’d expect too. Ah well, bought. I bagged the Portico Quartet when first announced.

    That's the one! May not be a popular choice amongst jazz fans but I really enjoyed it. I wouldn't even have called it jazz (but I'm a total newby to jazz!).

    I know, that is really annoying, you think you're getting something at a decent price (still bloody expensive though), and then they hit you with the tax and postage!

    I started to listen to that when I was out and about (on headphones) which meant I didn't hear the full textures and layers. Will try again at home when I can give it my full attention.
