How do you listen to music?


Recommended Posts

How do you listen to music? MP3 player, iPhone, Radio, vinyl?

 

If the 50’s and 60's were the era of the record, in the 70's we had tape, (lovely 8-tracks and cassettes!), and the Sony Walkman, then CD's in the 80’s and now MP3's.

 

This Day in Music is running a poll to find out how you listen to your music.

Attempting to be in the vanguard of musical hipsterism, last time we were in St Louis we brought home a reel-to-reel player (and recorder) that S's grandfather owned and used regularly. He was a concert pianist and managed an audiophile store in the St Louis area. He was very connected to music. Some of the reels were personal and appear to be recordings of both jazz and classical performances at Washington University.

 

(His LP collection which we also have is even better than his reel collection.)

 

After having the unit reconditioned and tuned up by some folks in Appleton, WI it is now hooked up to the Sonos so it can play in any room.

 

I threw a Jimmy Smith reel on yesterday and it sounded warm and beautiful.

That's a lovely set up.

 

The Institute for Jazz Studies at Rutgers University has accepted many gifts of original recordings, studio tapes, goofing-around stuff, and other materials over the years. The IJS sponsors a weekly show on WBGO (88.3 in NY, and wbgo.org) entitled Jazz from the Archives with material drawn from the library.

 

They have the skill to appraise jazz materials, sheet music, tapes, in an estate, etc and curate them into the future.
