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.
"Two important things happened to Coltrane in 1957: The saxophonist left Miles Davis' employ to join Thelonious Monk's band and hit new heights in extended, ecstatic soloing. Coltrane also kicked heroin addiction, a vital step in a religious awakening that climaxed with this legendary album-long hymn of praise. The indelible four-note theme of the first movement, "Acknowledgment," is the humble foundation of the suite. But Coltrane's majestic, often violent blowing (famously described as "sheets of sound") is never self-aggrandizing. Aloft with his classic quartet (pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison, drummer Elvin Jones), Coltrane soars with nothing but gratitude and joy. You can't help but go with him." - www.rollingstone.com
Right from the very first hearing, absolutely every single jazz critic shared
the same opinion - whether trained musicians or not, true or would-be jazz
expert: A Love Supreme is John Coltrane's most important recording. And the rave
reviews which appeared in the magazines Downbeat, Jazz Hot, Jazz Podium and
Swingjournal reflected this: critics all over the world, in America, Europe and
Japan recognized that Coltrane's deep religious belief had influenced both his
approach to life and his music-making. It not only enabled him to express
himself with great intensity but also lent him the necessary inner peace to
conceive a work of almost 40 minutes in length and to lead his quartet along the
same path as himself.
