2017 Stereophile Magazine Record to Die For!

180g Vinyl Pressed At Quality Record Pressings! Mastered By Ryan Smith At Sterling Sound!

One of the most iconic and instantly recognizable voices in music history is back in a way you’ve never heard before. Macy Gray makes her Chesky Records debut with her new Jazz infused album, Stripped. Paired with an awe inspiring jazz ensemble that includes Ari Hoenig, Daryl Johns, Russell Malone, and Wallace Roney, Macy’s voice is given the space and freedom to truly shine. Featuring new original songs, intriguing covers, and stunning new arrangements of her classic hits like “I Try,” there’s something for everyone on this timeless recording.

Macy Gray was born and raised in Ohio, and moved to California for college. She began singing in her 20s and released her multi-platinum debut album, On How Life Is, in 1999, winning a Grammy for her single, “I Try.”

Gray also enjoys acting, and has had small roles on several TV shows as well as movies, including Training Day with Denzel Washington, and Shadowboxer with Cuba Gooding Junior. Additionally she made cameo appearances as herself in films like Spider-Man (2002) and television shows like Ally McBeal. In 2012, she appeared in the film The Paperboy with Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, John Cusack, and Nicole Kidman. The film was released at the Cannes Film Festival. Gray was also a contestant on the ninth season of Dancing with the Stars in 2009.

Part of the Chesky Binaural + Series, all recorded with a single microphone, the band appears right before you with this spacious, lush and multi-dimensional recording. Now headphone users will hear the same three-dimensional sound and imaging as audiophiles have for the past 25 years with Chesky Recordings. Also these Binaural+ Series albums capture even more spatial realism for the home audiophile market, bringing you one step closer to the actual event. You will hear some of the most natural and pure cool music ever recorded.

"Although overdub-free audiophile recording sessions are new to Gray, there's a loose and intimate vibe to the performances that lets you know she's in control. I listened to the vinyl version of Stripped, which impressed me with its depth, space, sense of the room, and warm analog sound." - Jeff Wilson, The Absolute Sound, Rated 4/5 Music, 4.5/5 Sonics

This recording completely defies Holt's Law (the better the recording, the worse the musical performance): these are five-star performances in five-star binaural sound.
