    Almost embarrassed to say that my unopened copy of Jasmine was hidden low in my 'listen to' stack, until this week, until tonight. reading KJs notes, i had to chuckle when he said, "I hope many of you can hear this on a good system," because i was impatiently waiting for mine to warm up. with the hefty dual-driver subwoofer my cousin sent me to augment my tall magnetic ribbon speakers, a double bass/piano recording would be the ticket.
    ...and it's ALL about the music. the hair is still standing up on the back of my neck as i write this, just after a second listen. the space and clarity KJ and CH have created is astounding. the back wall of my listening room basically disappeared. on second listening, i was listening to what they weren't playing. i could sense the late night/wee morning hours as fullness, color, touch, sustain.
    great, almost beyond words. have sent this recording to my father-who knows the music, these composers. at 84, i hope he's sitting down when he listens to Jasmine. Matt Krane Breckenridge, CO
