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.
Cookin With The Miles Davis Quintet is the first classic album of four total that emerged from two marathon and fruitful sessions recorded in 1956 (the other three discs released in Cookins wake were Workin, Relaxin and Steamin). All the albums were recorded live in the studio, as Davis sought to capture, with Rudy Van Gelders expert engineering, the sense of a club show á la the Café Bohemia in New York, with his new quintet, featuring tenor saxophonist John Coltrane. In Miles own words, he says he called this album Cookin because thats what we didcame in and cooked. Whats particularly significant about this Davis album is his first recording of what became a classic tune for him: My Funny Valentine. Hot playing is also reserved for the uptempo number Tune Up, which revs with the zoom of both the leader and Trane.
