“Just because I wrote the song doesn’t mean I know what it means.” – Lou Reed

In this issue: I talk with Steve Morris of Streamline HiFi, who hand builds stereo consoles for the modern age. I offer my memories of audio reviewing legend Anthony H. Cordesman. Paul McGowan makes time for music. B. Jan Montana covers the 2024 NAMM Show and Thomas Fogel goes behind the scenes at the 2024 GRAMMY Awards. Octave Records has two new releases. Reason by pianist Erik Deutsch, vocalist Theo Bleckmann and instrumentalist Sly5thAve is a live excursion into adventurous post-modern jazz. Audiophile Masters Volume IX is the latest in Octave’s series of sonic reference discs. Wayne Robins contemplates music for growing minds.

Ken Kessler visits the Warsaw Audio Video Show. I fall in love with Korean TV show soundtracks. Ray Chelstowski interviews New York rocker extraordinaire Steve Conte on his upcoming album, The Concrete Jangle. Jay Jay French relistens to his past with the Youngbloods’ reissue of Elephant Mountain. Ted Shafran has high praise for live music. Ken Sander remembers when Alice Cooper caught a ride hitchhiking. PS Audio wins a bunch of Editor’s Choice awards. We conclude the issue with synesthesia, job opportunities, and winds of change.

Ray Chelstowski, Frank Doris, Thomas Fogel, Jay Jay French, Ken Kessler, Paul McGowan, B. Jan Montana, Wayne Robins, Ken Sander, Ted Shafran, Peter Xeni
