    It's in mono, plus they really rolled off the bottom end back in the 50s, so the needle wouldn't jump out of the groove.

    I bought it this year as part of a 8 LP on 4 CD box set for $12.
    The SHM-SACD costs triple that.
    If a Chambers fan grabs a copy, I'd be curious if it the SHM-SACD is a quantum improvement on the budget box.

    I've picked up half a dozen or so similar sets at similar prices for some of the jazz legends:
    Mingus (5), Ray Brown (7), Bill Evans (10), Coltrane (5)...
    A $55 20-CD Miles Davis on Columbia box.

    A substantial budget CD jazz library for the price a few audiophile imports.
    We're fortunate we live in the golden age of CD reissue and Euro union to have so many desirable options.




    The casual fan fixed-income budget option, 289 minutes, 8 LPs on 4 RBCD.

    I am about half way thru the new 2017 SHM SACD Blue Note Jazz series. I can't imagine anything sounding better; ie: DSD download etc. These early 60's releases sound so smooth and great. Each comes in a outer paper jacket, they all match each other and then the jewel case comes out with liner notes and band members. Here is an example of two that the other 18 mimic.

    The Jazz genre usually does it right in the sound quality department...I've purchased normal CDs that sound awesome..

    Very true.

    Don't forget about the 2xHD series of Jazz Classics from the Resonance, Storyville and now SWR Music catalogs.
    Excellent reissues from Analog Master Tapes to DSD - in many cases DSD 256. And they keep coming!

    3-Some-Other-Time-The-Lost-Session-Bill-Evans.jpg

    2xHD-Resonance & 2xHD-Storyville Jazz Reissues in DSD 256. 2xHD Mastering, Resonance Records, Storyville Records
    2017 Writer's Choice Award Winner from Brian Moura, Associate Editor, Positive Feedback


    In the last few years the audio market has seen rapid growth in the number of DACs that include DSD 256 (also known as Quad DSD and DSD 11.2 MHz) playback. This has encouraged the release of more albums in Stereo and even Surround Sound DSD 256. Given the size of these music tracks, DSD 256 is available only on music downloads.

    2xHD Mastering was formed by audio expert and recording and mastering engineer Rene LaFlamme and his partner producer and recording engineer Andre Perry. They initially licensed classic audiophile titles from labels including Proprius and Naxos and released remastered albums in DSD 64 and DSD 128 Stereo. With the increasing interest in DSD 256 titles, which some audio experts say brings you very close to the sound quality of Analog Tape and the even wider dynamic range of DSD 256 recordings, 2xHD upgraded their audio chain and began reissuing albums in DSD 256 as well as the earlier DSD 128 and DSD 64-bit rates.

    This year things became really interesting for Jazz fans when 2xHD applied this new system to classic albums from Resonance Records and Storyville Records. Resonance is led by Jazz experts George Klabin and Zev Feldman. Klabin and Feldman have an uncanny ability to find and then reissue rare lost Jazz recordings. Partnering with 2xHD has led to a gold mine of new Analog Master Tape to DSD 256 Stereo releases from the Resonance catalog featuring recordings with Bill Evans, Stan Getz, Jaco Pastorius, Shirley Horn, Sarah Vaughan, and several more.

    Storyville Records is one of Europe's top independent Jazz labels. They are known for reissuing fine Jazz recordings from Analog Tape as well. Their partnership with 2xHD has led to Analog to DSD 256 releases of recordings by artists including Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Coleman Hawkins, Les McCann, Ben Webster, Sonny Boy Williamson, and Teddy Wilson.

    Interestingly 2xHD's gradual entry into the DSD Download market has led to some download sites only offering their releases in DSD 64 (their first DSD releases) while others sell them in DSD 64 (single rate DSD) and DSD 128 (double rate DSD). This was illustrated at the recent DSD Seminar at the LA Audio Show where some seminar attendees didn't realize that their regular DSD downloads site didn't carry the DSD 256 (quad rate DSD) editions of the 2xHD-Resonance and 2xHD-Storyville releases. (You can find the 2xHD DSD 256 releases at NativeDSD Music and Acoustic Sounds.) For those who do find the DSD 256 editions of these Analog to DSD transfers, you will be richly rewarded with some real Jazz treasures.

    Here's hoping that 2xHD, Resonance and Storyville continue their partnership and bring us even more Jazz classics in DSD 256 Stereo. Hearing Bill Evans, Louis Armstrong, Stan Getz, Teddy Wilson, and more in this excellent format is a special treat. And one that certainly deserves a Writer's Choice Award to 2xHD, Resonance and Storyville.
