      For this -- and all vintage material -- seek out JRT Davies
      transcriptions. Speed correction is an art, not a science, especially as
      jazz musicians, especially at that time, did not play in tune.

      JRT had a musician's ear and his own patent technology, as we have
      previously discussed, for pitch correction.

      Generally his transcriptions of vintage material cannot be bettered,
      certainly not with intrusive digital technology which can produce
      unmusical travesties.

      Lossy MP3s offered online are also antithetical to real audio quality.
