Just recently (2022), Three Blind Mice reissued this title in LP format. When I played that record, and then this SACD, the sound was the same (except, of course, for no surface noise on the SACD). The SACD came out in 2006, so even today they are using the same recording and mastering that they did then.
If you get the chance to hear them, all of these Three Blind Mice SACD's are great. This recording is very clear, and the instruments can easily be heard and delineated from each other. You feel like you are in the room with the musicians. I have other SACD's that were made in the early to mid 2000's, and the sonics sound big, but somewhat undefined - not as sharp as the newer SACD's. But these Three Blind Mice SACD's seem to have been done well right from the start.
The music on this one is unusual, more akin to world music than Jazz, I suppose. You get to hear band members yelling, singing at various times, and more. This seems to have some funk fused into it as well. It's all over the place and just wild. If this is Jazz, they have bent some rules, and I love it. I would recommend at least listening to any version of this before purchase. Right now, for example, you can listen to the whole album on YouTube for free.
