The Black Keys - Delta Kream
I look forward to hearing it. I like the band. I like what they have done with and for a number of blues men. Loved their last album but my favorite is still Chulahoma. 
Kind of Blue SACD on a whim.
@mrdecibel It was a typo. You are correct my pre is the LS-16 (earlier version) not LS-15. The later model LS-16 MkII had a different tube configuration. I will definitely look up "A Tribute to Jack Johnson". Thanks for the tip. 
WHAT IS THE MOST UNIQUE SONG THAT YOU HAVE EVER HEARD?
Troglodyte by The Jimmy Castor Bunch. Funny. Awesome funk baseline.https://youtu.be/JNS42Na2mpcHappy Boy by the Beat Farmers. Possibly the only song in history to include a gargling solo.https://youtu.be/LEZtII8rt_Y@clearthink The New Oxford Ameri...

I have a pair of 6Ts in my living room. They sound pretty good too.

Correction: My reference to All Blues above should have read Flamenco Sketches.

Got the SACD today. It sounds great. DR is stellar as expected. And if it was anything but stellar this type of music would be ruined in my opinion. At moderately loud volume this SACD sounds fantastic. To me, low and marginal DR music sounds wors...

Indeed!

Thanks. I started the journey about 12 months ago but it just sort of faded away but now its getting rev'ed up again so who knows, maybe it'll take this time.Just listened to Cannonball's "Somethin' Else" and really liked it. Miles shines on this ...

@tablejockey I’m also at a happy point as far as systems go. And as with other hobbies, once I get to that point gear no longer interests me. I decided a while back that vinyl was not my thing. Not a knock on anyone who loves it but the level of c... 
Kind of Blue SACD on a whim.
@tablejockey I didn't (and don't) intend to start an argument about what works and what doesn't. I am pretty jaded about a lot of claims aimed at audiophiles but I do have good equipment and expensive cables. BUT, the claims made in the ad for tha...

@tablejockey Yep. I just haven't been able to pull the trigger on a couple bottles of this stuff:https://www.highfidelitycables.com/Nanoparticle/NPS1260.php?utm_source=audiogon&utm_medium=banne...

Thanks again guys. Will look into those other albums.

Thanks guys. Good info. It sounds like I didn't screw up at least. For $30 I thought it was worth trying.Not into vinyl. And in reality I'm not super finicky in terms of being an audiophile. CD quality has always been good enough for me as long as... 
Jazz for someone who doesn't like jazz.
Follow up from the OP (me). It has been nearly a year since my last post in this thread.During the following months I had pretty much given up on jazz. Just wasn't going back to it much other than Branford Marsalis' album "Eternal" on Sunday morni...
