Been doing a lot of audiophile futzing (much to my dachshund's chagrin) but also a lot of excellent listening.

Re-listening to Hubert Laws recently has me investigating quite a few of my old "stoner jazz" favorites and then I've found a few new ones that would fall into that category.

Yesterday I listened to the Return to Forever on ECM (Japanese SHM-CD), then Keith Jarrett "Treasure Island" (Impulse, from one of the two box sets of this material), then Weather Report "Sweetnighter" from the first box set of their entire output.  Then I followed up with this one which has echoes of Weather Report to me as well as other fusions--love it:

Omar Sosa & NDR Big Band "Es: Sensual"

Then I followed the Jacques Morelenbaum trail and listened to this one, new to me and I think fantastic:

Myriam Alter, "Where is There"

Today I continued on a bit of a fusion bend with a ringer of a Jackie & Roy album, on Japanese CTI Supreme series Blu-Spec cd, "A Wilder Alias," and now I'm on to more of a classic jazz vein with the 12th cd in the "Complete Bill Evans on Verve" box set, Bill with Gomez and Philly Joe.

The system is sounding great. . . and I'm really enjoying the listening.

Dug this out earlier today. Very nice session. Strozier was seriously underrated.

As I recall, you have a tube system, right?

One of my favourite live recordings. 

Here Kenny Burrell digs into the 40´s, playing Diz associated tunes like Birks Work, Lover Man, Rifftide , Get Happy etc. 

Blakey, Tina Brooks and Bobby Timmons are also very fine.

Hi John,

Yes, I have two systems with Decware preamps, EQ preamps, amplifiers, and headphone amplifiers, most with the "25th Anniversary Mods." I have Decware HR-1 speakers in both, and PS Audio and Rega and Oppo sources.  An embarrassment of riches really, I'm glad I was able to build these systems.

Disc 3 - Tunes - Jamming For Clef, Rose Room, Stompin' At The Savoy Pt 1 & Pt 2  - The group of musicians on tracks 1 and 2 are slightly different on tracks 3 and 4. The first track is way up tempo and I find it less interesting than the medium tempos on the other 3 tracks.

For the uninitiated, the 25th Anniversary Mods refers to tubes, right? Any chance you could post a photo of your setup. I would be very interested in seeing it.

I have an audio/video system in half of a room that is in total 9 meter by 7 meter. I have my main system in a room about 11 meter by 3.5 meter.
