Tribute To James Taylor on Hybrid Stereo SACD!

Jacintha's first new album since 2007 features a fabulous selection of hits from the James Taylor catalogue including: You've Got A Friend, Sweet Baby James, Walking Man, Fire & Rain, Shower The People and several other popular choices. Jacintha's first popular vocal album represents a striking change of pace from this Singaporean audiophile favorite.

In reviewing the 2LP 45rpm set:
"Jacintha sings 11 of Taylor's 'greatest hits' backed by a stellar lineup of Los Angeles studio musicians (two guitars, bass, keyboards, drums, and violin). She possesses a gorgeous voice and enjoys the advantage of top-notch arrangements. Performances aside, the exceptionally well-recorded Fire & Rain stands out because of its outstanding sound. Compare this 45 RPM set to most any other album on vinylreviews.com with a sound rating of five and add another point — the sonics are literally off-the-charts good. It was recorded at the Henson Recording Studio, the former A & M Studios in Los Angeles where Joni Mitchell recorded Blue. Yet Fire & Rain far exceeds the recording quality of Mitchell’s iconic record—and, I’d venture to say, surpasses the sonics of any recording of a female vocalist not issued by Groove Note. Take that, Diana Krall."
- Dennis Davis, vinylreview.com, September 2018, 5/5 Sound, 4.5/5 Total Rating

Several of the best LA-based musicians associated with James Taylor during his lengthy and stellar career appear on this album: Lee Sklar (bass), Russ Kunkel (drums), Jim Cox (keyboards & currently touring with JT), and Dean Parks (acoustic guitar & currently touring with JT). All songs are arranged by Tim Pierce (Vanessa Use Me and Vanessa When The Levee Breaks) who also plays acoustic guitar on several tracks.

The album was mixed by Michael C. Ross at Sunset Sound. A 100% analogue master was also prepared for the 180g 45rpm LP release.

"Michael C. Ross on the mixing console created the well-balanced wide open and dynamic sound of this pure analogue recording. Bernie Grundman, admired as mastering genius prepared the tapes for the transfer, and also did the vinyl cut. A real treat for the ears…" - Winfried Dulisch, Stereoplay Magazine, Germany, Audiophile CD of the Month for June 2018!
