The Skinny: You might know Ms Logan from her fine work for Postmodern Jukebox or as a contestant on American Idol. Aubrey is a singer, songwriter and trombonist; an intriguing combination. This is marketed as a jazz record, but Aubrey also rocks and waxes soulful and poppy.

Sounds like: Nicolette Larson, Blossom Dearie, Nora Jones, Judy Garland, Melba Liston

Deeper Thoughts: Recorded live at the legendary EastWest Studios in Los Angeles in front of an intimate audience, this record is for people who like their pop, soul and R&B on the jazzy side. Aubrey Logan is a highly skilled trombone soloist, but this isn’t a J.J. Johnson record. She likes lots of different kinds of music. She’s as comfortable on Bacharach & David’s “Alfie” as she is on her playful pop ditty “Laundry.” Her “One Three Nine” is a souful Disney musical-style belter. “Airport Codes” is a serious jazz chart and a heartfelt lament from the road. If Aubrey doesn’t steal your heart, you might not have one.

The Sonics: Aubrey tackles a number of different styles to give your D to A converter a nice workout. Kind of surprisingly, this recording gave my subwoofer a workout. Tabari Lake and drummer Dave Johnstone provide plenty of punch in the low frequencies. Aubrey’s wide vocal range and trombone soloing provide plenty of interval-skipping interest.

Hi! Welcome to our virtual record shop.

Our blog’s been around for a while, but we’re now finally realizing our dream of helping people find and enjoy great-sounding music. We’ve been involved with digital technology for playback gear since the late ’80s, representing specialty-audio divisions of Philips Electronics.

While we dig technology, our hearts have always been with the music. We appreciate well-recorded, well-mixed & mastered music in all formats, but we have a special affinity for the CD (compact disc). That’s what you’ll find here in our shop – CDs.

About The Shop

Although the once-preeminent CD has fallen out of favor in recent years, it persists. It’s a great-sounding format that has been diligently refined over the years and continues to deliver reference-quality sound. Just as audiophiles never abandoned vinyl, they have not abandoned CD. In fact, as CD enters its specialty niche phase, the quality of discs and playback gear continues to improve. We encourage you to reconsider CD – it’s a great addition to any serious music collector’s range. And it’s great therapy for the increasingly common condition known as “vinyl fatigue.”

We offer lovingly-curated custom batches of discs. We do not intend to compete with Amazon and Walmart, or streaming services. Our desire is to offer a range of sounds that are hard to find, or not available to stream, and are worth collecting. You’ll find new titles from respected independent labels, as well as interesting previously-owned discs from our extensive archive. We rotate the batches on a regular basis, so make it a point to come up to the lab and see what’s on the slab.

Have a look to some of the great articles by our regular rotation of contributors. And please leave comments, offer your reviews, and like & follow us on the usual social-media platforms – we’re almost always @360degreesound. We look forward to getting to know each other and the kind of music you like to collect. We respectfully solicit your feedback and suggestions.

Be well. Love music. Listen critically. – Chris Bisha, proprietor
