Original Direct-To 2-Track Recording made at Oceanway Studios in Hollywood by Joe Harley and Mike Ross. Dubs are made by Bernie Grundman using the Original 30 ips 1/4" 2-Track Masters. The masters are played back off of Bernie's customised and rebuilt Studer A80, then run through his EQ board, and straight into a series of Ampex ATR102 tape machines.
These Groove Note Master Quality Reel To Reel Tapes are made at 15 ips and EQ are NAB. Included are 2 Reels, a 1kHz alignment tone along with repros of the original cover art.
Since the actual session masters are run to make these copies, there is a limit to the number of times this can be done.
Already a tremendous figure in her native Singapore, Jacintha has been turning heads and ears in this country as well. With an outstanding singing style on par with the greats, Jacintha will enrapture you in a perpetual state of musical bliss! (We're not ones for overstatement either.)
Jacintha debuts in the U.S. with a 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 and Our Love is Here to Stay, Over The Rainbow are Webster classics.
This session was recorded at the famous Oceanway Recording Studios in Los Angeles, this recording is all-analogue, direct to two-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 Jacinthas 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).
** It is standard practice in all recording studios to keep the tape "tail out". This reduces "pre-echo" and it means that the tape should be placed on the right hand side of the recorder, re-wound and then played.Features:
