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 names spring to mind upon hearing the words jazz and samba, namely those of
Stan Getz and João Gilberto. But really one should be thinking of Antonio Carlos
Jobim, who, with his composition from 1958 Chega de saudade, first created the
type of Brazilian samba that is known today as bossa nova. It was with one of
Jobim's songs, Desafinado, that the bossa nova began its triumphant conquest of
the USA. In 1962, Stan Getz made the work widely known when he recorded the
number, together with Charlie Byrd, on his album Jazz Samba. It was this
recording, along with Focus (1961), which was responsible for Getz's definitive
comeback in the USA at that same time. Jazz Samba opened the floodgates to a new
musical vogue, and although cool jazz had been swept aside by hard bop, the
reserved and melancholy touch of Getz's style once again became all the rage. It
is really not at all surprising, therefore, that the album Getz/Gilberto,
recorded in March 1963 for the Verve label, was a winner right from the very
start, bringing together as it did the two godfathers of samba Jobim and
Gilberto with their American brother Getz.
This music is like a pleasantly warm bath whose water is perfumed with essential
oil, or like a mild summer night bathed in golden moonlight. The songs, all of
them now classics in their own right, are filled with the joy of life, peace and
