Featuring Neil Larsen, Robben Ford, Jimmy Haslip and Tom Brechtein, Orbit was recorded and mixed live during the performance featuring Straight Ahead Record's "All Live" style with proprietary equipment.

"The concept for Straight Ahead Records' sound is the result of many years of listening to recordings from the beginning of high fidelity sound, to the advent of stereo recordings, and to the present. Over these fifty years, many recordings stood out, capturing a realism and naturalness that moved you into their environment with the sense that you could touch the instruments. This elusive magic that some recordings have is not at all easy to create. The problem lies in the delicacy and complexity of an audio signal and how subtle losses or distortion in a recording affect the credibility of the environment that is presented to the listener. These factors of clean natural sound and a plausible environment are essential to capturing the essence of being there as it is happening. This is what Straight Ahead Records is all about." - Bernie Grundman

I've heard Neil old album before, but with Robben Ford and Jimmy Haslip, and other amazing players on this album, it made the whole album so groovy, I hope they will collaborate for more albums are yet to come on vinyl,offcourse, Well done,

Amazing sound quality. Perfectly flat pressing. Of the best pressings I have seen or played back this year. Extremely quiet between passages and songs. Lovingly pressed on 4 sides where they could have saved money and pressed the entire album on one record but chose not to. Very nice gate-fold jacked with really cool artwork. Amazing musicianship and wonderfully relaxing jazz. Sounds as if your system is directly plugged into the studio, so much so the instruments sound 3-dimensional. Highly recommended for all those that love jazz and which to feel as if sitting right in front of the group as they play. Very realistic.
