This Single-Layer SHM-SACD can only be played on a Super Audio CD Player!

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.

This 1965 release paired Miles Davis' rhythm section, Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb, with Wes Montgomery. This album's versions of "Unit 7" and "Four On Six" have helped to establish these songs as jazz standards and remain important references for their interpretation.

Although Montgomery had performed numerous times previously with Wynton Kelly, he began his association with the Wynton Kelly Trio until 1965. Together they toured the major jazz clubs in the US and also appeared at the Newport Jazz Festival on July 4th.

The sessions for this album were recorded live in June 1965 at the Half Note Club in New York City and September 1965 at Van Gelder Studios. Only two of the original album's five tracks were actually recorded at the Half Note (No Blues and If You Could See Me Now).

From an interview with The New York Times, it was revealed Pat Metheny's favorite guitar solo of all time was Wes Montgomery's chorus and a half on "If You Could See Me Now" from "Smokin' At the Half Note".
"As a young musician, Mr. Metheny did everything he could to sound like Montgomery, including playing without a pick and improvising parallel lines an octave apart. "But when I was 14 or 15," he said, "I realized that what I was doing was really disrespectful because that wasn't me, that was him. ..." - NYTimes.com
