Special limited SHM-SACD edition!

SHM-SACD stands for Super High Material Super-Audio CDs. This is a single-layer, stereo-only SACD pressed on special SHM discs utilizing high-quality polycarbonate material originally developed for LCD panels. SHM-SACD is the best digital format yet and provides no-compromise, ultimate digital sound that is tantalizingly analog-like. Recommended for serious audiophiles who owns an SACD player!

Anita O'Day (1919 - 2006) was a truly great, original jazz singer who was perhaps more popular and respected in Japan than in her own country. This Is Anita is the definitive, arguably the best record of O'Day. She is backed by a small combo plus strings arranged and conducted by the talented Buddy Bregman. The West Coast all-star rhythm section consisting of Paul Smith, Barney Kessel, Joe Mondragon and Alvin Stoller keeps the entire program swinging.

In the bright opener "You Are the Top," O'Day changes the lyrics to drop the names of prominent jazz musicians. Her swinging "Honeysuckle Rose" is one of the definitive interpretations of this Fats Waller tune. Sensitive "A Nightingale Sant in Berkeley Square" is devastatingly beautiful.

Recorded in December 1955. Originally released by Verve. This limited SHM-SACD was sourced from 2007 DSD masters produced by Verve (US). Mono.

Please note: This is NOT a hybrid SACD. You need an SACD player to play it! It does NOT contain any multi-channel tracks!
