Janos Starker plays a jazz suite for cello and 17 percussion instruments accompanied by George Gaber. The pieces feature portraits of Jazz legends such as Miles, Dizzy, Duke, and Trane among others. The session were recorded directly to two-track analog tape in 1980 at the University of Indiana Opera House which is noted for its fine acoustics.

This is a purist audiophile recording with one of the 20th century's best cellists' -- a treat not to be missed.
What is a 24/96 DVD? It is a High Quality 24/96 Digital Audio Disc (DAD) (Audio-ONLY DVD!). This disc will play on DVD capable players or DAC's that will output at 24/96. The original analog master tapes are converted to 24-bit/96kHz digital data through a Muse Model Seven A/D converter and a proprietary hard-disk recording system developed by Muse's Kevin Halverson. After the analog signal is encoded and the data stored on the hard drive, post-production "authoring" creates a digital tape called a "DLT," which is then used to produce a glass master, which in turn produces stampers that mold the DADs.
