High Quality 24/96 Digital Audio Disc (DAD) - Audio-ONLY DVD!

Altoist Lou Donaldson, who tends to get lost in the Blue Note all-star shuffle (even after making over twenty LP's for the label) is in his prime with this jam. Admiring the approach of Charlie Parker and Johnny Hodges, Donaldson combined the late 1945-55 bop alto scene with a heavy dose of r&b to come into his own. Originally released in 1959, one full year after the mono version, this set riffs on the space-race-craze, which was in full swing. Recorded by Rudy Van Gelder.

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.
