    I've put this in the Jazz section, but I'll say up front that it is more pop than jazz.

    I note, the music is a little too theatrical, choreographed and contrived for my preference, so bear that in mind - although the mood is easy and the result is eminently listenable music.

    Now for the sound though. It is good obviously - that's why I'm posting it here. But I've heard many good recordings. They still sound a long way off a live performance.

    In this case however - I have never herad a recording with more "live" moments than this. There are just so many passages that portray a live sound to a quality which I have not heard before. All the texture, timbre and tonality of the real instrument comes through.

    Just take the first track "Nice work if you can get it" - listen out for

    Piano 0 - 0.08
    Piano 0.38 - 0.41 seconds
    double bass 0.52 - 0.53
    drums 2.10 - 2.15
    double bass 3.05 - 3.32
    toms 3.40 - 3.43

    The sound is non-fatiguing, and even though the music is not my primary preference, I could listen all day.
