SACD and it sounds outstanding
. It is a MCH SACD but I'm listening to it in 2CH. The second track With You I'm Born Again is a great song showcasing the talents of Roy Hargrove on trumpet. I'll be ordering this SACD real soon as it is priced quite low at around $15.00 shipped from Amazon. I wanted to add that the more I listen to this SACD the more I am impressed. Not only in the music but the SQ as well. I tried the MCH mix and there seems to be no output from the center channel, I much prefer the 2CH mix. Reminds me in a way of some of Miles Davis' albums.
Bill, great choice on ordering this disc. I got my copy from Amazon last week and has quickly become one of my favorite hi-res discs. Roy Hargrove........oh my!!! I used SACD.net for looking up Chesky catalog on hi-res and purchased a total of SEVEN SACD's from Amazon market place for GREAT prices! Another I'm looking forward to getting soon is a Chesky by pianist David Hazeltine titled: Manhattan. Trio Jazz ala Bill Evans/Motian/LaFaro.
Also, for those with the ability to play DVD-Audio discs, HIGHLY RECOMMEND Ray Brown's 'Soular Energy'. I believe it's also on SACD but way more $$$$$.
Sonics and performance is amazing. Another on DVD-Audio is called 'Trio' by Ray Brown, Monty Alexander and Russel Malone. Wonderful.
And, I should be getting 'Listen Here' on SACD today. Yes, I paid too much for this title, but, what the h*ll. I had the Cd (which sounds fantastic, BTW), but I wanted to here and own the hi-res version. I LOVE this record!
Enjoy the music!
