With a good Scotch or a rich Belgian ale.  And for Miles (or Getz), with a 
consenting adult. :) 

But seriously -- the distortion is often added at the recording/production 
for artistic effect.  One should generally try to listen to a recording through 
lowest distortion gear available.  But the ear is hundreds of times more 
sensitive to higher order harmonics than to low order ones, so what is low 
distortion and what is high distortion is a pretty complex set of variables.

Stations", and lot's more.  Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions
