Our seventh Hi-Res Drawing features SACDs from Fantasy Records. A dozen lucky AUDIOPHILE AUDITION readers who Register Here (or have registered earlier) will receive their choice of one of the above stereo SACDs: Milt Jackson and Wes Montgomery together – vibes & guitar, Gerry Mulligan playing with his friend Thelonious Monk, or jazz giant Benny Carter playing both alto sax and trumpet at the top of his game. Drawings will be made Jan. 1, we’ll announce the winners shortly thereafter, and we won’t sell or share your information. Check back with us frequently for new reviews & news!
