Home Hi-Rez Highway

New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

I've listened all the way thru mine, once.

Compared with the CD I have and barely remember, in MC the piano is not so hard right and the sax not so hard left (both of which are better). The bass is still centered, and the drums are still hard left and still most of the time barely audible. The piano and sax can be blended ('moved') toward the center by increasing the CC level. There seems to be a little more space around the drums that's audible when Joe is soloing.

IMO it's still a typical example of Columbia's multimono, little-fone-booths style of recording that sounded unnatural then and still does. Now it's just higher-rez.

I also have on hand a friend's copy of what I believe is the Columbia MC release (barcode # 0 7464-658122-6) that I heard weeks ago. I guess it's time for me to compare them. More later.
