I'm sitting here working at home, listening to Seattle's KEXP via the Internet Radio feature in iTunes 12.6 on Windows. I really like the Mini Player view. And I really like album art. I use albumartexchange.com to seek out high res art for all my albums so they look great on the Apple TV. Here is my question - why does iTunes not have album art for Internet Radio streams? I can't stand staring at the default iTunes music note logo in iTunes and on the Apple TV when I'm listening to streams. I came across this article that suggests, back in 2013 Apple was interested in adding radio logos for some service or another. http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/08/05/apple-asks-internet-radio-stations-for-itunes-radio-cover-art But as far as I can tell, nothing has come of it. This thread on the Apple boards suggests adding a dummy MP3, with the art, to iTunes and making an album out of the MP3 and the radio stream. It kind of works. But the art still does not show up in the main iTunes "now playing bar", the mini player, ATV or the iTunes Remote App. (The iTunes Remote App is something that desperately needs help too... https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2681827?tstart=0 Artwork, in general, has taken a real hit in recent iTunes versions. The Artist picture issue is simply awful. Does anyone have any insight into why Apple does not have art for Internet Radio streams? Or any tricks to help? Thanks! -- Bryan
CheskyRecords posted a topic in HDtracks (Sponsored)Computer Audiophile Users can get 25% off We'll Be Together Again, featuring Javon Jackson, Ron Carter, and Billy Drummond on HDtracks using code CPUTOGETHER. The shadows of the Sonny Rollins trio and Joe Henderson trio (both having recorded classic albums at the Village Vanguard) hover over this sparse, revealing trio outing with Jackson, Carter and Drummond. And like his sax playing elders, Jackson put his own stamp on a set of well chosen jazz standards while also showcasing a few originals. “Sonny being a big influence on me, obviously there would be some things in there that would be reminiscent, or have that spirit anyway,” says Jackson, who just hit the half century mark this June. And while playing without a chordal instrument was a challenge in some respects for the saxophonist, he explains that Carter’s presence more than made up for the absence of piano on this Chesky release. “Ron is kind of like a symphony behind you. He’s the bass player, but he’s the piano at times, he’s the drums and he’s out front with the melody. So he can be several things at once. With him there, there are so many colors that are available to me. So it’s not out of disrespect to the piano, it’s just that with Ron, we have a lot of opportunities. This trio setting just allows him to kind of roam a little bit and be more of a free safety, to use a football analogy.” Part of the Chesky Binaural + Series, all recorded with a single microphone, the band appears right before you with this spacious, lush and multi-dimensional recording. Now headphone users will hear the same three-dimensional sound and imaging as audiophiles have for the past 25 years with Chesky Recordings. Also, these new Binaural+ Series albums capture even more spatial realism for the home audiophile market, bringing you one step closer to the actual event. You will hear some of the most natural and pure Jazz music ever recorded.
