(thanks AVH, I've attached the audio)
second audio is the Grand Junction Landing

An American Airlines Airbus A321-200, registration N165US performing flight AA-2065 from Dallas Ft. Worth,TX to Salt Lake City,UT (USA) with 170 people on board, was enroute at FL340 about 10nm south of Grand Junction Airport,CO (USA) when the left hand engine suffered a series of compressor stalls prompting the crew to shut the engine down, declare emergency and divert to Grand Junction Airport. The aircraft landed safely on Grand Junction Airport's runway 29 and stopped on the runway for an inspection of the left hand engine by emergency services.

A replacement Airbus A321-200 registration N556UW reached Salt Lake City with a total delay of 11.5 hours.

The airline reported a possible mechanical problem prompted the diversion to Grand Junction.
