Performance:   Sonics:
This is the third shm sacd release from the original set that created 4 seperate albums.
Its great that Miles Davis is being released on Shm as many other Davis sacd's were only released by Sony on regular sacd back in the day.

Miles Davis is ofcourse a legend in the jazz/music field and his trumpet playing is unmistakable. In the 50's and 60's he was jazz.

The sound on this disc is very good with nice detail and good soundstage. I would not place it in the highest levels of other better classic Jazz shm sacd's but it's a good release nonetheless. This disc sounds better to my ears than the Cookin' shm sacd. And Cookin' was a decent sounding shm sacd.

The trumpet of Miles and the sax of Coltrane are very nicely rendered. The back up band is excellent as well.

Universal Japan used the best tape source they could find and the sound on this disc is very good. Tape hiss has been kept and no compression is used which are great choices for good sound. This sacd has very good presence to it and a life like quality.

I dont know if Universal Japan will release the final album in this series (Steamin) which has been released on sacd in a very good version by Mobile Fidelity from the original master tapes. It would be very interesting to compare the two if it ever is released.

Highly recommended.

this is 1956 recording.
so whatever magic you do it's never will sound perfect.
but it's good indeed.
