Where's the conflict?

That's my question too!
What's this guy's problem? JA & others use recordings they are familiar with. Some are ones JA has done the recording of; so? JA's reputation & integrity are at risk because of this? That's nonsense!
John, I liked your response & thanks for reference to WP's article; good reading. Also, regarding Editor's Choice, I printed out that article & read it when I listen to the CD which is very good! Larry

Re: Where's the conflict?

My only objection to the use of in house recording is that the choice of music is seldom what I listen to, so I do not own them. That said, the idea of a reviewer using music he is intimately familiar with seems sound to me.

that reader came off like an ass.

I felt bad for JA reading it.

I thought it was well handled.

There'll always be a minority view. Publishing such views and responding keeps the publication "honest."

Using material that you're intimately familiar with is incredibly useful. It's only one measure or criteria, but including it is valid, in my view.
