    It's neat for 30+ year old technology to win the award.

    I had a pleasure of playing the Jazz at the Pawnshop tapes for Winston Ma on one of the Nagra IV-S with QGB adapter setups just as the session was recorded. Although I was using the stock IV-S playback electronics with Nagra EQ, the sound was glorious even compared to the original Proprious LP and FIMs latest releases.

        Now if we could only get Winston to reissue JATP that on tape! That would be special.

          Not sure what Rene had playing on the nagra ivs but it was almost certainly incredible. He's a recording engineer after all! He may have had the bill evans tapes that he has been transferring to 2xhd

            Myles,

            JATP on tapes would be one of the must-have-music on tapes for all serious tapeheads.

            We had discussed the possibility many times. As Winston had received the permission from Proprius to release his latest JATPS 3 LP set few years ago, he could have done the JATPS tapes easily. Furthermore, we had discussed the quickest way of reguvinating FIM by taking his original recordings done on tapes to be remastered (if needed) and released them on LPs, HD downloads (with Cookie Marenco already teed up), and tapes as well. It was just back in March.

            And last year, we had finished the Proprius Sings - compilation of glorious choral songs from unleased Proprius tapes. It was all ready for production on CDs and to be followed up as HD file downloads, LPs, and tapes.

            Then unfortunately, his illness returned last month and got worse...

            Maybe we should have a new thread dedicated for Winston's work and legacy.

              Except MikeL. He doesn't care for JATPS.

                I'll check with Mike.

                JATPS is somewhat like the numerous KOB versions - not in the quality of music but quantity of available different releases. I guess it's been played to death in shows, some people are sick of it. However in terms of pure sound, JATPS original tape with no noise reduction and recorded in Nagra Master EQ (not the common safety copy or so called Master Tape that had been encoded in Dolby A and recorded in IEC EQ) is something special IMHO.

                  I'm deeply saddened to hear about Winston taking a turn for the worse. He's been fighting a long and brave battle. I'd welcome a thread about Winston because there's a couple of people here who worked with and know the man intimately. He certainly has been a force in high-end audio for many years and you know you buy perfection when you purchase a FIM recording.

                  In fact, it was Winston who got me into tape. But I'll save that for the other thread.
