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.
The very fact that America's biggest jazz label called one of their albums quite
simply Ella and Louis indicates that we are talking about something very special
here. And surely enough has been said - "Satchmo" and the grande dame of jazz
certainly need no further introduction. In the '50s just the mere mention of
their forenames was enough to light up the eyes of jazz fans. A glance at the
track list reveals that tranquility rules the day: wild stomps and improvised
scats will neither be sought nor missed. Of prime importance to the jazz ballad
is a feeling of "letting oneself drift" in the inspiration which gushes forth
from the minds of genial American songwriters. This is no contest - for the
artists all pursue a common goal with extreme sensitiveness. The background
combo, made up of first-class musicians and led by Oscar Peterson, performs with
great concentration and almost obtrusive unobtrusiveness. Verve's highly
successful producer Norman Granz decided quite deliberately to make the
recording in the studio instead of at a live session. And success has verified
his judgment, for such vocal jazz knows only gentle tones - but the result is
all the more intensive for that.
