Natalie Cole - Ask a Woman Who Knows Hybrid SACD Verve performance 7 sound 7 released 2005 original release 2002 In 1991, Natalie Cole revived her career by releasing Unforgettable – with Love, which featured her singing duets with the overdubbed vocals of her deceased father, the great Nat “King” Cole. Since then, Natalie has settled comfortably into the modern-day chanteuse role. Although she continues to live up to the high expectations of such a calling, the main problem with 2002’s Ask a Woman Who Knows, which has just been re-released as an SACD, is that it is, well, just a little too forgettable.

Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto - Getz Gilberto artist: Stan Getz, Joao Gilberto album: Getz/Gilberto format: SACD Stereo non-hybrid label: Verve release year: 2002 performance: 9 sound 9.5 reviewed by: Jerry Del Colliano Style exudes from every note of the 1963 Brazilian Jazz classic Getz/Gilberto more now than ever with the 2003 stereo, non-hybrid SACD remix of the record. This disc is the first one that I have had a chance to review from the first batch of Universal Music group collection of SACD, and it is a great place to start. The record, which has now sold over 500,000 copies, has to be historically considered to be a success. Creatively, it sets the bar for the genre of Brazilian Jazz.

Joe Satriani - Strange Beautiful Music artist: Joe Satriani album: Strange Beautiful Music format: SACD - Multi-channel, non-hybrid label: Epic release year: 2002 performance: 8 sound 8 reviewed by: Jerry Del Colliano As an impressionable guitar wielding teen in the 1980’s, the first time I heard Joe Satriani’s benchmark record Surfing With The Alien, everything changed. I had been diligently going to my guitar lessons and working on my more conservative Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page chops with the occasional (but not too complicated) Jimi Hendrix riff mixed in. Now everything was different.

Both bands literally walk on water for nearly every recording engineer I have ever met and especially my recording professors in music school.

Erich Kunzel/Cincinnati Pops Orchestra - A Celtic Spectacular artist: Erich Kunzel/Cincinnati Pops Orchestra   album: A Celtic Spectacular format: SACD label: Telarc release year: 2002 performance: 7 sound 8 reviewed by: Richard Elen Telarc’s evident trademarks, especially since they started issuing Super Audio CD (SACD) discs, are lush, impressive, beautifully-recorded extravaganzas (check out the other Telarc discs I’ve reviewed to see what I mean), and “A Celtic Spectacular” is all of the above. Featuring the Cincinnati Pops under the baton of Erich Kunzel, this disc also includes a wealth of special Celtic guests, such as the Chieftains, James Galway, tenor John McDermott, classical-turned-Celtic fiddler Liz Knowles and Uilleann piper Kieran O’Hare, plus other luminaries of American Celtic music, such as the Silver Arm.
