Robert Lighton, a noted furniture designer, also runs an appointment-only shop in Manhattan where he sells the products of Audio Note UK, along with the Audio Note-inspired RL-10 loudspeaker ($25,000/pair) that he designed himself. Perhaps more important, as Ariel Bitran has pointed out
, Robert Lighton plays good music. Great
music. LPs I heard at his NYAS room included Isaac Hayes' Live at the Sahara Tahoe
, Nancy Wilson/Cannonball Adderley
, and the Shirley Horn Trio's Travelin' Light
. I need them all! Thank you, Robert, for playing what I considered the best music of NYAS 2013.
