@frank_gyure2 expressed the hope that this thread might revive. In honor of you I’ll listen to some more Jazz and use that as inspiration for posting here. In the meantime, you may also enjoy the Jazz subreddit, which I find to be quite stimulating.
Since I know @frank_gyure2 enjoys classical as well, I’ll start my listening with
I haven’t actually listened to much Jazz-Classical fusion, but I enjoy Concierto de Aranjuez quite a bit. I actually heard the Miles Davis version before the original, and after finally listening to a performance of the original was struck by how faithful Miles stays to it. It’s immediately recognizable as itself, and while it leaves out a lot of the little guitar flourishes that make the original sound so “Spanish”, uses relatively sparser instrumentation and adds swing, the tempo and dynamics remain similar enough to the original that the overall feeling conveys. Like a Borg, he adds his own distinctiveness without compromising the integrity of the whole. Masterful!
EDIT - I should have mentioned that this sounds wonderful on my HD58X (from a Topping NX4). The Sennheiser 600 series gets a lot of kudos for vocal reproduction, but I think their strength extends well beyond this. This album has a lot of interesting percussion (most of which uses devices and instruments that I can’t name) and to my ear it sounds perfectly balanced and natural. For whatever reason, I find that a lot of headphones struggle with rendering percussion well, either lacking punch, lacking sparkle or going too far the other way and becoming shrill.
