||Blu-spec CD2 version of |
This recording was originally released by Fantasy as "The Tokyo Concert," a live recording of the Bill Evans Trio with Eddie Gomez and Marty Morell. The concert took place on January 20, 1973. The performances are excellent, and I won't dwell on that here. A somewhat majestic opening version of Bobbi Gentry's "Morning Glory," a spirited "Up with the Lark," and so forth. What everyone is wondering is, how much of a sound improvement is there in this Blu-spec2 format over the original, and is it worth the extra money. Japanese CD manufacturers have made a series of incremental improvements in sound reproduction over the last ten or so years. First we had the xrcd -- extended resolution CD -- from JVC, which adds some degree of sharpness, depth and clarity. Followed by JVC Universal's SHM-CD (super high material compact disc), giving a somewhat softer enhanced sound than the xrcd. Then came the Super Audio CD (SACD), which requires a dedicated player, although it will play on standard CD players without benefit of the improved sound. I have no experience with SACDs. And now, since 2008, have come Toshiba EMI's Hi Quality CD (HQCD) and Sony Music Entertainment Japan's Blu-spec CD (in Sept. 2012, a sort of second generation had evolved -- the Blu-Spec CD2, which is the format in which you now find the current disc under review, "Live in Tokyo"). Having had one experience with HQCD (Kenny Barron's "Minor Blues"), and now a first taste of the Blu-spec2 format, my preference is HQCD, in which the sound fairly booms and the range seems wider. You will most definitely hear a marked difference in the HQCD sound. The Blu-spec2 format is also an improvement, but not as striking at least to these ears -- there is less distortion, and a somewhat richer sound with wider range than the original. I'm just not sure it's worth that much extra money.
