Various artists performing must-have jazz tracks. Including Cole Porter, John Coltrane, Ira Gershwin, Willie Broonzy, Munyungo Jackson and more.
The heart and soul of any recorded sound must surely be the acoustical properties of the room or hall itself, and the microphones being used within that acoustic. David Manley designed the Vital Music studio in Chino, California, for "purist" recording techniques only, with all the music played "live" and captured through a Manley "Gold Reference" Stereo Condenser Microphone, straight onto 2-track stereo. The Studer C37 analogue tape deck with only Manley pure tube circuitry, at 15 ips, was used with no noise reduction and mastered for CD Gold through the dCS Converter A/D to create the digital master. Sound, pure and simple...music, powerful and satisfying.
