Discussion: Ravi Coltrane: Mad 6

Has anyone heard this SACD (apart from DeSelby)?

I bought the album on a midpriced Sony CD, I like the session but the sound on the CD is atrocious: claustrophobic soundstage, muddy bass, lacking dynamics and precision.

The back cover says "Mad 6 was remixed and remastered especially for US release", so I wonder if only that CD version is messed up. I don't think Eighty-Eights would release such a sonic disaster.

Another question: has anyone recently ordered an Eighty-Eights SACD? I ordered the Eddie Henderson disc at Amazon.de, after 6 weeks they told me that it is no longer available. But you can't trust Amazon on such things.

I have purchased Eighty-Eight SACD's from Amazon.jp and Ejazzlines.com. I don't have the CD version for comparison, but the SACD version sounds very good indeed.

Thanks! I will try to get the Ravi SACD then, from earlyrecords.com, my favourite japanese store.
