Description:Warner Japan Special limited SHM-SACD reissue series!
World premier release on SACD!

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. Following Universal, Warner Music Japan began reissuing its jazz titles on SHM-SACD, including classic records from Atlantic label.

The Modern Jazz Quartet broke up after the concert documented on this CD. Mostly revisiting their greatest hits, the MJQ plays inspired versions of such songs as "Softly, As in a Morning Sunrise," "Bags' Groove," "Skating in Central Park," "Confirmation," "The Golden Striker," and, of course, "Django." This set is a real gem (the music is essential for all serious jazz collections), featuring vibraphonist Milt Jackson, pianist John Lewis, bassist Percy Heath, and drummer Connie Kay at their very best.

This single-disc SHM-SACD contains all 14 tracks included in the original, doble LP album.

Recorded November 25, 1974 at Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center, NY.

This SHM-SACD was released in Japan on March 23, 2011. 2011 DSD remastering based 24-bit, 192kHz PCM masters sourced from the U.S. Stereo.

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