It's good to see Gramophone getting something right for once.
An excellent performance and recording.
Great to have En Saga at last in hi-rez.
There is desperate need for emoji's on here!
I liked this very much. The Petrouchka recording uses surround channels in an ambient manner and the other recordings are certainly more discrete and the sound itself is very ...
To my utter astonishment Music Web International have marked this up as possibly their candidate for best recording of the year... "it's that good!"
Is this still Planet ...
I agree with Ubertrout, these recordings are historically significant in terms of the evolution of recording techniques and of the legacy of some of the great names in ...
The music is even better than I remember it from my youth. The sound is to die for...
Earth to John,
Since this one is due, at least in part, to your own good efforts maybe you should try to forget it's the kind of music that bores you to tears and just bask ...
Soulless. Definitely the worst of OSO's collaboration with Pentatone. There is some sort of ambient hum in Symphony 64. No interpretive insights. Avoid.

good that Japan remasters this masterpiece for SACD! Wasn't a remaster not also scheduled to come out with Analogue Productions?
The Analogue Productions Prestige Stereo SACD series of 25 titles includes these Eric Dolphy recordings: Out There, Outward Bound, Far Cry, and At the Five Spot.
I purchased the 24/192 download of Out to Lunch and the Blue Note 75 LP which is sourced from that 24/192 stereo transfer (engineering by Alan Yoshida). On my system, the hi-res file sounds much better than the LP. It's possible that EQ was applied (high end roll off) in the LP mastering process to make the LP sound more 'analogue'. I recommend the hi-res download.
Will this Universal Japan SHM-SACD series incoporate new transfers from Van Gelder's original master tapes, or the 24/192 transfers done in 2015 by Alan Yoshida and Bernie Grundman? Confirmation of the sources for these new SHM-SACDs would be welcome. They are among the most well-known and frequently remastered and reissued Blue Note titles.
The only title in this series that has been announced as a new (2017) transfer from original source tape to DSD is John Coltrane's Blue Train.
If there are any members of this site who are fluent in Japanese, please share English translations of the Universal Japan press releases about these SACDs.
Thanks, Mark, for those details. I have Out to Lunch on a 1998 RTI-pressed remaster, which sounds mighty fine. I'm not into download generally, so would prefer this new SACD. As for Blue Train, I think the analogue productions from 2010 will do, for me at least.
