Perhaps the other reviewer needs to upgrade his equipment. Sonically this SACD ranks very high in my collection. Love hearing Houston Person's breaths on the tenor sax's reed in "If I Ruled the World". Peter Washington's bass on "Gone But Not Forgotten" is as clean as anything my Sunfire has ever produced and the same can be said for Joey Defrancesco's Hammond Organ pedal tones on "What's New". Classic American Songbook jazz at it's finest and a steal at this price.

Those familiar with the 60's Blue Note era recognize Rudy Van Gelder (RVG) as one of the chief architects responsible for shaping the Blue Note sound. However, making the transition from vinyl to CD was never quite as satisfying ... until now. I was never very fond of the RVG recording style of drums/piano/bass, center stage ... with lead instruments - trumpet and/or sax separately tracked on either left or right channel.

This "Jazz After Midnight" Hybrid Stereo SACD sounds as good as any I've ever heard. For audio quality and that sense of "there-ness" this production really delivers. The music itself is engaging enough, but may not be everyone's cup of tea ... mostly standards by a few better known folks. This is taken directly from the write-up: "Ten great tracks by the likes of Larry Coryell, Cedar Walton, Joey DeFranceso and David 'Fathead' Newman." At $9.98 a throw, it was initially a "why not" purchase. Turns out, this has definite potential as a jazz reference piece.

This is the perfect collection for hanging out with folks late late into the night. But the sound quality on the SACD layer sounds totally Redbook, i.e. boring; instruments that all sound like they are made of linoleum instead of brass, reed, metal and wood; you can't hear the walls of the studio; you never suspect the music might actually be live in your house. Good DSD sound makes me LOVE all the instruments --- that fat nasty trumpet, the slithering cymbal, the breath of the violin. But this disk --- me and this disk can never be more than just friends. And of course there is no way to know the train of resolution during the recording and editing. Congress ought to enact labeling requirements on the resolution of digital sources so the consumer knows what "proof" they're buying --- this disk is CD light beer sold as SACD bourbon. But hey, the SACD format is struggling hard enough in the market as it is. I realize now that in the analog era, good sound came along for free, but now, great sound is a digital add-on that most of the MP3 generation have never experienced and don't care about.
