Newly recut from original 30 ips direct to 2-track all-analog stereo master by Bernie Grundman

Singer Jacintha, already a heady musical figure in her native Singapore, makes her U.S. debut in this tribute to the legendary tenor saxophone player: Ben Webster. The songs have been specially selected to reflect this premise, i.e. they are mostly great vocal standards and/or ballads that have been recorded by Webster many times and are thus associated with his particular style and name. Some of these songs like "Stardust," "How Long Has This Been Going On," "Georgia," "Our Love Is Here To Stay" and "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" are Webster classics.

The original album was recorded at the famous OceanWay Recording Studios in Los Angeles, via all-analog, direct to 2-track. The recording was made on an ATR-100 tape machine with BASF-900 1/4' high resolution tape running at 30ips. Only vintage microphones were used including the Neumann M-49 tube microphone set-up for Jacintha's voice. The other microphones used (for the musicians) included Neumann M-50 and U-47. The recording and mastering cabling for this session was supplied by Audioquest (Lapis). Mastered by Bernie Grundman direct from the original analogue masters on his highly modified and customized tube driven Sculley cutting lathe.

Groove Note is proud to announce the 20th anniversary release of Jacintha Here's To Ben in a special one-step plating vinyl LP edition. This double 45 rpm release is a numbered strictly limited edition packaged in a new deluxe gatefold jacket. All the lacquers are newly cut from the original 30 ips direct to 2 track all analogue stereo master by Bernie Grundman.
