The album is there but I could not find the flat master tape transfer on the download store.

Yes, there are versions of it available, apparently not that one. That's why the previous comment that it's not available. There are theoretically SACD versions which may be the same.

This is one of the albums I added to my collection because it was given to me by someone for my Bday and I don't want them to not see it there if they ever happen to be handed the iPad... That said, this is not my favorite album of hers. The best song on the album is her cover of Black Hole Sun. This album is quite jarring at times and Norah is not at her best. The band behind her is pretty good but at times it didn't sound like they were playing together. Perhaps they were trying for too modern of a modern jazz sound for me.

Today I may have found one that gives MTT/SFS a run for it’s money. It’s the Abbado/CSO. Not only is it a wonderful interpretation and performance, the recording quality is sumptuous!

Hi Rajiv,

 

what do you think of the Abbado/BP recording? (I never heard the Abbado/CSO recording, but I'm familiar with the MTT-recording, and the Abbado/BP).

 

Happy listening!

As marvelous as the performance is on this album, is anybody other than me a bit disappointed with the SQ? Piano to me sounds constricted, like it's in a box. Bass is  a bit lumpy and flabby; just a bit. I don't think it is POOR sound quality, just sort of below the level I might have expected.  I am listening to the 24/96 version on Qobuz.
