O’s Notes: This is an excellent disc for evaluating SACD technology. There are both old and new recordings, all recorded direct to digital from original masters. You will experience the clarity realized from a sampling frequency 64 times higher than ordinary CDs. The music spans a wide variety of jazz including Poncho Sanchez’s “Watermelon Man”, Gene Harris on “Listen Here”, Carmen McRae singing “My Handy Man Ain’t Handy No More” and more! There are 13 great tracks, all good.
