Ha - this caught me by surprise!
Found it on Tidal, let's hear what this is.. some singers, and yes, they are to the left, from just outside the left speaker, spread out towards center, and reverb from a large space, noticeable from right and a little up front (deeper), you can possibly sense a high ceiling.
Decided to sit just a few more seconds, and then the whole composition changes dramatically - there singers spread out, not only just beyond the speakers, one is now located right to the left side of the lp, and the image still holds up - it is a singer, with body, not some faint sound coming from far left. Amazing.
This recording places singers around me, from 90 degrees left and around towards and past center, they are all separately distinguishable, and the walls of my room are replaced by the larger pace of the recording.
Thank you for this tip, this is music I would never have found, I don't play much of this sort, but this one I will definitely listen more to.
To put this in relevance to the thread - speakers are one thing, but room acoustics together with the radiation pattern is what determines how this scene will be rendered and perceived.
Roll Jordan Roll was recorded a few times by Fairfield Four in different venues. It was from the album Standing in the Safety Zone is the one I've been talking about. It's at the min 2:15 point. There are five of them in the Fairfield Four. This one was on my top ten 'Recordings to Evaluate Systems with' thread from January 2016. I found it from the Martin Logan Neolith demo at the Munich audio show around that time. Or to be more precise, it was These Bones that ML was playing and I searched through the rest of Fairfield Four's recordings and found several great albums.
