    Been to Ronnie Scotts a couple of times to see Cecile mc loran salvant......me and my good lady were in the pews but it sounded wonderfull.

    Pretty good burger and chips washed down with copious amounts of vino may also have enhanced my lug holes.

    Best treble I have heard is from STAX headphones, best bass from massive soundsystems at gigs and festivals.

    The most potent bass I ever heard from non-professional speakers, was at the Penta Audio Fair about thirty years ago. It was a huge pair of Cerwin Vega 15T brutes that were shaking the whole floor even with the demo room door closed. The bass output was monstrous!

    For example the Martin Audio MLA system. No home system will get close.

    Album- woman child
    Track-I didnt know what time it was.

    Ronnie Scott's went completely silent-what a beautiful voice and humble person.

    I hope she gets the recognition she deserves.
