Just finish listening to this marvelous recording, which I don't know much of this gentleman's music or career. A few years ago I would have been bashing this disc, more so for the lack of understanding the music, you wouldn't have caught me listening to while breathing sweet life, but I have to say it's a great recording, clean and open with great imaging. Which I now appreciate, and respect these musicians.
The Multi Ch/rear speakers is subtle creating a lovely sonic bubble which is really nice with this type of music. I have speakers with ribbon tweeters and I'll go as far to say this recording comes through like a breath of fresh air/y, really shows off this type of tweeter. The singers voice is so life like it put a smile on my face...These are the little things that makes this hobby so worth the trouble.
Now I would like to get another listen without the family around, just me and a brew toe tapping.

Performance:   Sonics:
This is one of my favorite SACDs. The recording fidelity is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL and the SACD makes a huge difference. Everything is crystal clear, with even the subtle characteristics of each instrument coming right through. If you close your eyes, it sounds like you are situated right in the middle of a jam room.

Music-wise, this is spectacular. I've seen Jorma play a couple times during the past couple years, and this represents what he is doing now. ...Laid back, bluesy, back-porch feel, but still with plenty of upbeat and loads of energy in the playing. All the players are, really, all-stars so, as you would expect, the playing to be extremely tight. Even though the music is bluesy, it will make you feel so good all over.

Performance:   Sonics:
Of the 25 or so hi-res recordings I own, this is definitely my favorite. The music has a laid-back back porch feel, but it's also incredibly engaging and warm, due in no small part to the superb fidelity of the recording. Every instrument is articulated in the mix, yet the performances are incredibly cohesive. Jorma and his buddies seem to inhabit these songs rather than just play them. If you have ever heard the first few Hot Tuna albums or any of Jorma's solo work, such as "Quah", this is very similar in style and feel. This music never fails to pick me up.
