Lyn Stanley - The Moonlight Sessions Volume Two 2017 DSD256-DSF
Audiophiles will be very happy with this high-res DSD 128 Stereo download. The close attention to recording and engineering provides a quiet background with a very stable, naturalistic soundstage that brings Stanley and the instruments transparently into the listening space. Volume 1 seems a bit bass-heavy, even boomy at times. On "All or Nothing at All", for example, even Stanley's voice seems distorted on the low end. Volume 2 seems a distinctly better-balanced recording.
Although both volumes of The Moonlight Sessions are worth owning, the second volume is an absolute must-have, and Lyn Stanley is an absolute must-follow as she continues her second career as a proven jazz vocalist interested in thoughtful reinterpretation of jazz standards and high-quality, audiophile recording.
