It sure is a great topic. Once before was someone stating that is was a good idea to mention the music style and probably other info of importance to the music suggestions. For a while everybody was doing this... It would be nice to keep adding this info :-)
Sonus Faber Olympica II -> Chord Signature -> Devialet 250 Pro / Anthem MRX 710 / HD-Plex H1.S based silent HiFi PC -> Roon -> HD-Plex Linear Power Supply / Pro-Ject RPM 5.1 -> Dynavector 10X5 / B&W MT-60D
The Dude by Quincy Jones (1981)

In the thread about "the pros vs the experts comparison", some of us wrote about the unforgiving rendition of poor 80s recordings (and there are indeed a lot of those). Did anyone recently listen to an Aitken, Stock and Waterman top 50 #1 ? Don't do it !

The recent loudness war (see the Death Magnetic by Metallica controversy) reminded me of a golden age ( kind of) and the best state of the art albums which were actually released in the... 80s.
No Protool, no Pitchperfect and musicians playing their parts in one take or two.
My all time favorites are the albums by Toto but tonight I'd like to share The Dude by Quincy Jones with you : ecclectism is the word. Patti Austin thrives, Louis Johnson's bass grooves not to mention Stevie Wonder or Steve Lukather's tasty rythm guitar parts.

Crank it up !

Download from Qobuz vis Roon. Extremely nice contemporary jazz and very well recorded. The percussive parts just jump at you.
