A wonderful collection of (highly) contrasting looks, Douglas! And thanks for the link to the Burton performance, that was super.

I saw Burton in a live concert once - just once - man - it was more years ago than I like to recall! But I still remember it and it was good.

- great - Never saw him live - but he sounds so great on the now defunct ECM label -  old vinyl on a mint 1970's Dual turntable I just bought -  knocks my socks off - Was first aware of him because the guitarist Pat Metheny was in his band at a young age . ~ together later ---->  youtu.be/DKG1dBxyEwI

That's a great clip, thanks. Ah - I remember Dual turntables! Sweet. I have an old Technics and it always seems to my that my LPs sound better than my CDs do.

I like Metheny a lot, he is cool because his range goes from mellow and melodic to outside and noisy. One of my favorite youtubes with him features Pete Townshend, it's crazy. Check it out if you feel like it and have a moment I Put a Spell on You

~ that link - is to one of the strangest combinations of musicians I have ever seen ! :lol: ( thanks ! ) - Metheny content to play in the background - but Pete is cool :) - and what a drummer ! ................. . . well - I'm not an audiophile - but I just love putting records on the old  turntable - that sound you hear  when the needle hits the record - and away you go ! :) . . . seems to generally  sound warmer to these ears  -if the record was made from the master tapes etc . . . ( so many variables ) - but quality over quantity is preferable to this generations MP3 bent .
     Yeah Metheny has a nice style - usually uptempo - bright , positive - Latin influenced ....but he likes to experiment . Also has a feel for the melancholy pieces I think -youtu.be/H13sXHTw18E

glad you liked it - it's completely off the wall but so good :D yeah, the drummer was ON :)

yup, vinyl vs. mp3 is no contest, and that first crackle of the needle is so sweet.

and thanks, that is a great track by Metheny and Haden :nod:

I never really went away Doug. I wasn't really happy about the direction I was going with my last account so I made this paralleldeviant account to upload some of my darker stuff.  It's strange I visited many of my old friends and left messages or faved their work under my new account however quite a number didn't realize it was me.  It was nice and necessary to make the change and I am glad to say that I have got back many of my old good friends.
