I thought I'd start a new thread and see if there is any interest in continuing it amongst other jazz listeners here. There's the Jazz Beat, but you really can't have a conversation there, you can only talk about jazz. . . and for some strange reason alcohol. If you talk audio, or about instruments, or about the bad day you had, or how happy you are to be listening and relaxing, or anything else. . . someone complains, posts are deleted, fingers are wagged. I'd like to have a thread where you an talk about jazz AND other music that may be on your mind while listening to jazz, what you're thinking about while listening, how your day or life is going, just a conversation with jazz music going, like one might have in person. I personally prefer this sort of a thread to any other type of thread. Thought if we spell it out in the beginning that this is an open conversation then those who are somehow offended or bothered can participate elsewhere, and those who don't mind a conversation can have one. I'm listening to the second disc in the new SHM-CD version of "The Heavyweight Champion" box set of John Coltrane Atlantic recordings. I really didn't need to buy this set but I found I couldn't resist. I'm not sure if these are new masterings or not. . . but they sound a bit different than the US set. Both sound quite good to be honest, if you have one no real reason to get the other, unless you're just a hopeless Coltrane collector. (I guess I fall into that category whether I want to or not). And I had a nice half a day setting up and listening to a new headphone amp and a new pair of headphones I received today. Life is good. I'm indulging my passion for music and stereo and just in a good place these days. Life has ups and downs, enjoy the ups! So if you want to join a conversation. . . please do.
