Speak Like a Child is the sixth album for Blue Note Records by American jazz
musician Herbie Hancock, recorded and released in 1968. The evocative cover
photograph was taken by David Bythewood, an acquaintance of Hancock. The woman
on the cover is Hancock's then-girlfriend, Gigi Meixner. Critic Nat Hentoff
considered the album an "impressive further stage in the evolution of Herbie
Hancock as writer and player," characterized by a "singular quality of incisive,
" the album is laid-back, melodic, and quite beautiful...the key to Speak
Like a Child is in Hancock's graceful, lyrical playing and compositions, which
are lovely on the surface and provocative and challenging upon closer
listening." -Stephen Thomas Erlewine, allmusic.com
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.
