If an older analogue master were remixed in DXD, you might want to obtain the recording in DXD or at least double or quad DSD. Of course, that would be a download file. Have ...
Reference resolved the faulty disc problem immediately and the performances and recording are peerless great job all around
I have this one and find it to be as good as all the other Esoteric discs in my collection. I also do not have the original 1988 cd, so cannot compare to that one. In reading ...
I didn't mean to stir the pot quite this much, and we're all indulging in this hobby to get closer to what brings us joy. I picked the Trondheim recording simply because it's ...
I finally got my hands on a copy of this disc at a decent price, this was my first introduction to the work on its redbook incarnation. At the time the coupling was with ...
Thanks Ubertrout, this is a most helpful and useful comment.
Esoteric certainly do lots of people a nostalgic favour by copying and remastering their old damaged LP war ...
I have no such problems when playback this SACD you mentioned, but I do hear throughout the disc a good amount of background noise (seems like radiowaves) both when listen in ...
Well, I do own both of the discs mainly under discussion here - the Trondheim and the Davis. Obviously the Trondheim is the better recording! Beyond that it's a little ...

Part of the Blue Note SACD series out of Japan, of which there are quite a few (try 20).
Details on the source used for the DSD masters in this series are pretty sketchy, but the odds seem to be that we are looking at a conversion to DSD of the 24-bit, 192 kHz masters done in the mid noughties.
They are not nearly as texturally rich and full sounding as the Mofi jazz efforts. They have that clean Japanese presentation and something of a PCM character.
This title has been issued a couple of times on SACD but I have not heard them and can't compare.
It sounds pretty good........and the bonus for me is that there are NO 'bonus' tracks. Just the album as originally fashioned.
If you like bonus tracks the AP version still seems to be available and it does have a couple bonus tracks tacked on the end.
This SHM-SACD of Blue Train is described as sourced from a new DSD transfer.
From the CD Japan site:
Reissue in SHM-SACD format for the first time. Uses 2017 DSD master.
Seems to be the one exception to the 192/24 sources for the rest of the series.
