From 2xHD: "For the 2xHD transfer of this recording, the original 1/2”, 30 ips NAB master tape was played on a modified TELEFUNKEN M15 Tape recorder with SAKI head, using a hi-end tube preamplifier with OCC silver cables. We did an analog transfer for each HiRes sampling and A & B comparisons were made with both the original LP, using the Kronos turntable, as well as with the best available CD, using the Nagra HD Dac and dCS Vivaldi DAC, throughout the process.

This is a truly intimate and personal acoustic Jazz album, recorded ‘off the floor’ on an analogue 1/2” tape recorder at 30 ips, non-Dolby, with no overdubs. It is a wonderful spontaneous fusion of spirit.
Whether playing simply as a duo, with Davis on piano and Piltch on acoustic bass, or with the occasional guest on some tracks, their dedication to the ‘spirit of ensemble music’ is palpable.
The David Piltch & Aaron Davis duo has been appreciated by audiophiles since the their early 90s’ performances as part of the Holly Cole Trio in the classic albums; Don’t Smoke in Bed and Girl Talk.
