Art Blakey was, without doubt, one of the most explosive and rock-solid swinging
drummers of all time. He also is one of the finest bandleaders and discoverers
of new talent the music has ever known. On the title cut of 1960’s A Night in
Tunisia, Art is at his most passionate, starting off with a solo full of
polyrhythms, color and fire, nearly primal in its intensity. The word “fire” can
easily apply to this version of the Jazz Messengers, featuring the blistering
trumpet of Lee Morgan, the highly original tenor-saxophonist Wayne Shorter, the
funky pianist Bobby Timmons and the always-reliable bassist Jymie Merritt. In
addition to their remarkable instrumental prowess, Morgan, Shorter and Timmons
were skilled songwriters. Each contributes a song or two this classic set,
including Timmons’ “So Tired.” However, it is the 11-minute version of Dizzy
Gillespie’s “A Night in Tunisia,” given arguably its greatest recording, that
really makes this album a transcendent jazz listening experience for the ages.
SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes
the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further
enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed
for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency,
players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which
enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution
format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high
resolution format such as SACD.
