MILES DAVIS / Milestones - SACD Hybride Mono - Edition Limitée Numérotée

Miles Davis Milestones on Numbered Limited Edition Hybrid Mono SACD from Mobile Fidelity!

Vanguard Sonics: Mobile Fidelity Reissue Presents The 1958 Standard with Unparalleled Sound Quality!

Milestones is the Oft-Overlooked Link Between ‘Round About Midnight and Kind of Blue. In MONO for First Time—You Will Not Hear a Better Digital Edition. Only Album to Feature Davis’ Original Sextet, Including Rhythm Section of Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones. Title Track Stands as First-Ever Modal Composition Even as Blues and Hard-Bop Flavors Make Album One of Davis’ Most Explosive Affairs.

Miles Davis created just one studio album with his original sextet. He made every moment count. Pairing with Cannonball Adderley, John Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones, the trumpeter not only laid the groundwork for the modalism that immediately followed but tailored a genuine modern-jazz masterwork laden with performances among the most explosive of his distinguished career. Due to its sandwiched position between the more famous ‘Round About Midnight and epochal Kind of Blue, Milestones remains, for too many music lovers, an overlooked classic.

Part of Mobile Fidelity’s Miles Davis catalog restoration series, Milestones has been restored to mono for the first time as to expose the record’s standing as one of the all-time great jazz efforts. Mastered from the original master tapes, and in mono for the first time ever, this unsurpassed digital edition grants each musician their own space in a well-defined, broadened soundstage. Colors, shapes, and dimensions appear in the manner they do when beheld from behind a studio-control room’s window.

Davis’ burnished trumpet? Rendered in three-dimensional perspective, coaxing his mates out to play with unburdened zest and commotion. Coltrane’s trademark saxophone? Witness it in life-size proportion, his solos working in tandem with and against the driving rhythms. Garland’s swaggering piano lines? Visualize the 88 keys as he hits full stride, the chords and fills slithering around skeletal frameworks.

If anything, Milestones is as famous for its title track as the players that produced it. The launching pad for many of Davis’ (and later, his contemporaries’) improvisational flights, the singular piece invites the tessellated explorations Coltrane would forever chase as well as the headliner’s argyle solo work, who broaches territories that far exceed what he had done with his bop-rooted past. Every song is a highlight, whether it’s the bravado “No Jackle,” featuring a hot-foot pace and bebop strains, or “Sid’s Ahead,” which continues the album’s blues theme while tossing around edgy harmonics and inside-out structures.

Then there’s “Straight, No Chaser,” the absolutely definitive rendition of Thelonious Monk’s signature piece. Coltrane’s marbled playing pulls at the tune’s lobed borders, Adderley takes liberty with solos, and Davis dances around his mates, at one point quoting “When the Saints Go Marching In” while demonstrating his knowledge of tradition and eye towards the future. A milestone if there ever was. And now, in resplendent mono sonics.

Détails

Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab poursuit depuis plus de 30 années sa quête de perfection appliquée au support musical. Depuis le premier Vinyle UHQR jusqu'au plus récent UHR (Ultra High Resolution) SACD ce label est et reste un des pionniers de l'innovation pour le support et sa qualité poussée jusqu'à la perfection. Chaque audiophile féru de de beaux disques connaît ORIGINAL MASTER RECORDING.

Ce label, depuis sa création, fait partie des rares labels à investir dans des technologies débouchant sur des innovations véritables au service de la qualité sonore. Ces améliorations ont toujours été appréciées par les consommateurs du monde entier qui ont fait le succès de ce label au fil des années.

Mobile Fidelity a toujours privilégié les équipements de mastering les plus neutres et les plus à même de dévoiler les plus subtiles détails d'une bande originale sans ajouter de coloration ou de détérioration. Des Bandes Master variées et originales sont retrouvées, restaurées et font l'objet d'un remastering soigné. Seules les Bandes Master de première génération sont employées pour nos remastering. Les bandes de seconde ou troisième génération employées pour le pressage grand public ne sont jamais sélectionnées. Enfin, notre procédé GAIN 2™ ULTRA ANALOG system (voir explications plus bas) est notre dernière innovation qui permet une lecture à 1/2 vitesse de la bande pour en extraire une quantité d'information très supérieur.

Le son chaud et défini d'un Original Master Recording est la force maîtresse de ce label car c'est l'un des plus analogiques qui soit tous types de pressages confondus. Les CD Gold 24K sont parfaitement exquis (ils sont très recherchés après disparition du titre) et les SACD UHR possèdent la meilleure couche CD que vous puissiez rencontrer et les arguments pour vous faire apprécier le SACD en véritable haute définition. Les vinyles offrent ce qui se fait de mieux au monde.

Tous les remastering Mobile Fidelity depuis 30 ans sont devenus des collectors. Les séries limitées le sont vraiment (1000 à 4000) contrairement à certains pressages japonais limités à 25.000 unités. Après 5000 pressages une matrice ne produit plus le même disque et ne permet plus une production identique du premier au dernier numéro.


GAIN 2™ Détails techniques :

Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab (MFSL) is the undisputed leader in the art and science of record technology. Through the evolution of its Ultra High Quality Records (UHQR) to the ANADISQ 200 series, audiophiles and serious music collectors alike have long applauded Mobile Fidelity’s contributions to the research and development of making the best records humanly and technically possible. MFSL’s latest innovation on the vinyl frontier is the GAIN 2™ ULTRA ANALOG system

The introduction of GAIN 2™ ULTRA ANALOG maintains Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab’s position as the world’s leading audiophile vinyl record label, where passion for music is merged with extraordinary sound quality. The GAIN 2™ ULTRA ANALOG disc mastering system is comprised of a modified Studer A-80 tape machine with proprietary reproducer electronics and customized, handcrafted cutting electronics and power amps that drive an Ortofon cutter head on a modified Neumann lathe. Independent and in house studies have confirmed that the GAIN 2™ ULTRA ANALOG system can unveil sonic information all the way up to122 kHz. First and foremost, Mobile Fidelity Sound lab utilizes only first generation ORIGINAL MASTER RECORDINGS as source material for our releases, never the second or third-generation master tapes that are often used by mass producing music labels. The master tapes are played back at half speed enabling the GAIN 2™ ULTRA ANALOG system to fully extract the tape’s sonic information, resulting in more cutting amplifier headroom, as well as allowing the cutter head twice as much time to inscribe the full bandwidth of the audio signal. Half speed mastering allows for incredible frequency response and hysteresis (a type of playback distortion) is greatly reduced from the tape transport’s playback head. Lacquers are then plated in a specialized process that protects transients in the musical signal. Optimum sound quality is further ensured by strictly limiting the number of pressings for each release. These Limited Editions, in addition to being collectors’ items, assure you that the quality of the first pressing matches the quality of the last.

To protect your GAIN 2™ ULTRA ANALOG pressing after purchase, each is protectively custom packaged to maintain flatness and prevent warping. Each GAIN 2™ ULTRA ANALOG record contains a specially constructed heavy-duty album jacket that is supported by a rigid cardboard “stiffener”, and the entire package is loosely “bagged” instead of being subjected to a tight shrink-wrap that can contribute to record warpage. To help eliminate dust -and minimize surface noise- a unique static-free “rice paper” inner sleeve protects each disc. These “Original Master Sleeves” are also available separately from Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab to help protect the rest of the records in your collection.
