Performance:   Sonics:
If you like tango music with a mixture of big band jazz....well look no further. Actually it is more of big band jazz album with a small touch of tango flavour. Like the addition of the accordian instrument on most tracks. The performances can be blistering and also dull. It depends on the individual track. The style of jazz playing is akin to Nelson Riddle. It comes closest to this.

The band is very doubt about that......... as is the pure dsd recording. There is very little compression if at all so you can turn the volume way up. The trumpet playing is very beautifully done but not as much as I would haved liked. Some tracks are a little monotone in feel. In my humble opinion this is the weakest part of the sacd. The overall coherency of each track. This negative feeling is present but some might not detect it as much as I do.

All in all this is a very fine performance and recording. I did not give complete five star scores across the board as I felt the performances could have been better thought out. Also the playing could have been better articulated as a whole too.

I recommend this sacd with a tad bit of reluctance. But just a tad.
