Ordinarily I get impatient with the interviews with pop musicians at the end of the NPR news broadcasts.  But yesterday's interviewee was holding forth, bless his heart, on the terrible effects of poor digital recording techniques that clean up the sound at the expense of its full expressive, vibrant range.
He quoted Miles Davis who, hating the studio environment that ate up the sound, asked always that the doors be opened.
Right on!
My recordings were made in my home, on my piano, with the microphone right inside the instrument picking up the full range of its mess, even though digitally!
