Performance:   Sonics:  
I didn't think that I liked jazz... until I started to listen to Miles Davis a few years ago.
This album really changed my mind about jazz, this is excellent! The sound is so transparent it almost makes me belive I actually have the band in my livingroom. The sound quality is better than I excpected from a recording as old as this one. In the 5.1 mix the rear speakers are used for ambience, it fits very nice with the music.

I really want to recommend this album specially to others like me, that usually don't listen to jazz music but is curious and wants to give it a try. I think most people with a genuine intrest in music will like this!

stereo sonics: recorded 1959 and sounding better than some of today´s records, although the levels of the instruments are not quite well balanced

Performance:   Sonics:  
One of jazzs greatest classics!
This SACD is far better then previous CDs i have owned, including various remasters..
Sonics a scaringly good, like a time machine.
Drawback: Volume is different between the tracks which could be a little annoying and the overall level is very low compared to all of my other SACDs. This does not affect the perfect soundquality though
