CTI(CTI%20RVG%20SHMCD%20Audiophile%20Sampler,BJ).jpg

Various Artists, "CTI + RVG Audiophile Series Sample", CTI [Japan] #DCH 21111 (2009).[SHM-CD]

For the very first time, 20 CTI titles from the 70s are being released on SHM-CD format (some of the albums from the 60s, from the A&M/CTI era, had appeared before, such as Wes Montgomery's best-selling "A Day In the Life").
AND, also for the first time ever, such albums were digitally remastered, in 2009, by the man who recorded most of them during the CTI heyday in the early 70s, the wiz Rudy Van Gelder, under the direct supervision of another legendary jazz master, producer Creed Taylor!
The booklets preserve the original LP artworks, done mostly by the unmatched team of Pete Turner (front cover photos) and Bob Ciano or Tony Lane (album designs), with liner notes written by Arnaldo DeSouteiro, Ira Gitler, Leonard Feather, Toshio Handa, Shoich Yui and Masa Asanishi.

All previous CTI CDs released in Japan in the past 25 years had been remastered at King Studios by such engineers as Seiji Kaneko and Kuniaki Takahashi, sometimes under Arnaldo DeSouteiro's supervision; and all the CTI CDs released in the USA and Europe by Sony had been remastered by experts like Tim Geelan and Mark Wilder, with whom DeSouteiro worked respectively in the first domestic releases of such titles as Deodato's "In Concert - Live at Felt Forum" and Jobim's "Stone Flower."

SHM-CD means "Super High Material CD" and involves a new technology of manufacturing. This high quality SHM-CD format features enhanced audio quality through the use of a special polycarbonate plastic. Using a process developed by JVC and Universal Music Japan discovered through the joint companies' research into LCD display manufacturing, SHM-CDs feature improved transparency on the data side of the disc, allowing for more accurate reading of CD data by the CD player laser head. SHM-CD format CDs are fully compatible with standard CD players.

Release Date in Japan: November 26, 2009.

Text Box (back cover):

For the very first time, all the songs composed by Joao Gilberto, the genius who created the Bossa Nova, are included in the same album.

And it's the first "João Gilberto Songbook" ever released by any artist in the world!

A celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the release of João Gilberto’s debut album, “Chega de Saudade” (1959), which included the original recordings of “Bim Bom” and “Ho-ba-La-La”.

Ithamara Koorax, acclaimed as one of the world’s top jazz singers, has recorded with such giants as Antonio Carlos Jobim, Luiz Bonfá, Ron Carter, Larry Coryell, John McLaughlin, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, and now she teams up with legendary guitarist Juarez Moreira, one of Brazil’s best musicians ever, for this historic project.
