A Stereophile Recording of the Month!
Companion is a June 1999 live recording from the stage of Chicago's historic Green Mill Jazz Club. Recording engineer Jim Anderson used 32 microphones, including four omni-directional mics for audience and "room" sound, which he routed through John Hardy M-1, Class A discrete microphone preamps to four linked 8-track Studer 24-bit ADAT recorders powered by noise-canceling balanced line conditioners. Anderson mixed to a Studer 2-track, half-inch analog deck with Dolby SR noise reduction.
This DSD download includes a bonus track, Miles Davis' "So What."
During track three, "Like JT," the multitrack machine broke down. Jim Anderson continued to mix as he was backing up the entire session to CD in real time. The label loved the track so much that they felt it needed to be included, so "Like JT" is actually live-to-2-track, 16/44.
