I like the SACD and the music. It's Michael Brecker's final album and has an all star group of jazz stars on the disc.

The Surround Sound mix uses a "horse shoe" arrangement (per Heads Up/Telarc's Michael Bishop) with the Sax up front. The surrounds are used for keyboard, drum parts and seasoning. Very appropriate to the music.

I've long been a fan of this album. An extraordinary swan song from Brecker featuring a lineup of legends (Hancock, Metheny, Patitucci, DeJohnette, Mehldau). The compositions are uniformly excellent leaning towards more progressive, rather than traditional, harmonic sequences (which may not appeal to all). The sound is warm, dynamic and crystal clear. The surround mix makes great use of the center channel and creates an effective & full soundstage along the sides and back of the listener. As Brian noted, very appropriate for the music. 10

Another case of buying the Multichannel SACDs when they first come out.
If you don't, those prices do go up once the SACD is out of print and no longer available.
