Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity’s numbered-edition hybrid SACD e significantly expands the soundstage that frames the orchestra and digs deep to eradicate a dryness that many critics have found as an anathema to its overall enjoyment. Here is the full-figured perspective long deserved by the woodwinds, strings, and percussion, all of which come alive with exceptional definition and detail. You’ll also note the revealing separation within the space occupied by Davis, bassist Paul Chambers, drummer Jimmy Cobb, percussionist Elvin Jones, and the 18-piece orchestra. Ditto the absorbing detail and textures of the blues undercurrents and Spanish flamenco strains.
