I certainly understand this concept of delay in live performance but on disc......particularly if you segue into the first ECM track and not remembering the delay is there - can certainly make it sound like something went wrong.

ECM cds have sent me quickly scanning the board to see what button I didn't 
have pushed. ECM is the only one that has this delay and to confuse 
even more, every so often, a ECM cd will not have the delay. I'm always 
prepared, and will hit the play button early, but you never know how early. 
I too would love to know why they do this. I am sure it is intentional. 
But why?


Some of us who remember vinyl still cue-up a CD...in the real sense: 
actually hearing the first couple of seconds. It's good practice, anyway, because of 
labeling inconsistencies (sometimes a brief inter-music narrative is 
enumerated, sometimes not).



This week's sponsor: Sunnyside Records - Steven Bernstein's Millennial Territory Orchestra


MTO Volume 1 is the debut album from Steven Bernstein's Millennial Territory Orchestra. The nine-piece outfit features some of Gotham's most original musical voices, wicked and well-traveled improvisers who tear into and savor Bernstein's arrangements like the tangiest Kansas City barbecue. The selection of tunes includes classic '20s fare (Charlie Johnson's ''Boy in the Boat,'' Bennie Moten's ''Toby'') and the kind of contemporary pop and R&B hits (Prince's ''Darling Nikki,'' Stevie Wonder's ''Signed, Sealed, Delivered'') that have long been part of Bernstein's repertoire. The vibrancy of the playing, the wit and sass of the arrangements, uncovers the genetic code that makes Bennie Moten and Prince funk-soul brothers of the first order. All this, without once conjuring the snoot of academe or dreaded notions of ''post-modern jazz.''

The Millennial Territory Orchestra is: Steven Bernstein (trumpet, slide trumpet), Ben Allison (bass) Peter Apfelbaum (tenor) Charlie Burnham (violin) Clark Gayton (trombone), Erik Lawrence (baritone, soprano) Matt Munisteri (guitar, banjo, vocal), Ben Perowsky (drums) Doug Wieselman (clarinet, tenor saxophone) and special guest Doug Wamble (guitar, vocal) on ''Signed, Sealed & Delivered''
