Review by thedogguy January 7, 2006 (1 of 2 found this review helpful)
I had blessedly forgotten about this terrible mis-step in the career of Christy Baron until I came upon the reviews here. I can't comment on the sonics of the SACD--I've only had the sad experience of listening to the original redbook CD. This is truly wretched, folks. Christy is a wonderful singer and Chesky is a fine label for audiofile recordings but this is the worst concept I've ever encountered. The problem is the co-producer Didier Rachou (who apparently had a freehand to experiment with any and all gimmicks available). As if the sampling and programming were not bad enough, he even threw in Tuvan throat singing!

If you're into vandalism, you might appreciate this recording. Rachou was the vandal who was apparently intent on destroying Christy Baron's career and Chesky's reputation. For the life of me, I can't understand why it has been released on SACD. It should have been allowed a merciful death in the back of the catalog.

Performance: Nothing, zero, no stars. I can't rate the sonics.

stereo sonics: very good sound(stage). I do not agree with the statement of eesau. Admitted, it is not a typical Chesky entirely acoustic latin jazz record. Sometimes it almost sounds psychodelic. What of it? I do not like that always the same, boring latin jazz very much. I am glad about new ideas in music and sound. Who needs the 6744th Bossa Nova record?

Just one gimmick after another. Sound in stereo is not too bad but the content is appalling.

Save your money.
