SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.
Hiromi Uehara, better known as simply Hiromi, is a jazz composer/pianist born in Japan. She is best known for her virtuosic technique, energetic live performances and blend of musical genres such as post-bop, prog rock, classical and jazz fusion compositions.
"Move ... displays the remarkably tight execution and rock muscle that the electro-acoustic trio establishd on their impressive debut, 2011's Voice... Hiromi juggles funky wah-wah synth with piano in a contrapuntal dance as Phillips lays down a solid groove on 'Endeavor,' a tune which has her emulating her mentor Ahmad Jamal... 'In Between,' sound[s] like a cross between Chick Corea and Franz Liszt." - Bill Milkowski, The Absolute Sound, April 2013, 4.5/5 Music, 4.5/5 Sonics
