A couple by Buddy Rich: A Different Drummer (1972/1971), in a conversion from Japanese CD-4, and The Roar of '74, in a conversion from quad reel. Big, brash, and noisy--like Buddy himself, I guess. (Not necessarily a bad thing, though it can get a little exhausting.) Both super-discrete mixes. Some "with-it" pop turns ("Domino," JCS) on DD, while on '74 they try to get funky with help from the ubiquitous-and-versatile Tony Levin in the bass chair.

I freakin love Buddy! He made me laugh when I was a child! I’ll bet you’d like this dvd. Gives me chills. And it’s quad.

Minnie Riperton, Adventures in Paradise (1975), in a Tate conversion from SQ LP. Good tunes (including some sweet slow jams), good charts, good mixes.

Moving episode of the Lost Notes podcast (by the Macarthur "Genius" Hanif Abdurraqib) on Riperton, by the way:

Howard Roberts, Equinox Express Elevator (1975), in a SurroundMaster decode of a QS-encoded CD reissue. Not quite like anything else on Impulse! from the period: a little out, a little funk, a little fusion, a little folk-jazz, a little samba, a little symphonic. I like it. And the mix is more discrete than most of its Impulse siblings, too.

Speaking of nothing quite like anything else on its label: Joris Roelofs, Rope Dance (SACD/FLAC 5.0, 2021). I don't know of any other Dutch avant-garde chamber jazz inspired by Nietzsche on the Swedish classical label BIS. I recognized bassist Clemens van der Feen, but the real attraction was the bassos I didn't know. Jazz bass clarinet! Jazz bassoon! I couldn't resist.

PERCEPTIONS OF TIME {Caprice Records/multi~CH SACD} An excellent discrete SACD well worth your consideration! Luscious DEEP BASS ABOUNDS!
