TAS Rated 4/5 Music, 4.5/5 Sonics in the March 2020 Best Audio Gear Issue of The Absolute Sound!
Power-House Trio On Vinyl LP!
Third release from the power-house tenor/organ combo featuring the legendary drummer Steve Gadd with Michael Blicher (saxophones) and Dan Hemmer (Hammond organ). The music of Danish saxophonist Michael Blicher is classic bluesy jazz flavored with the soulful sounds of saxophone and Hammond organ. The album features a fantastic guest performance by vocalist Paul Carrack (Mike & Mechanics, Eric Clapton etc).
To deliver the highest possible sound quality, this record has been mastered using MQA technology and converted to analog with a Brinkmann Audio Nyquist Mk II Streaming DAC. The MQA Master has been directly fed from the DAC into the cutting machine. A Brinkmann Audio Bardo direct drive turntable is employed for quality control.
"...Half of the six tracks were recorded live, the others in a studio, and the sound throughout this DMM (Direct Metal Mastering) LP is consistently excellent. There's a wonderful energy and clarity throughout, with a tonal accuracy and richness - rarely has a Hammond sounded so buttery, a tenor so throaty - that is sure to make this a new demo favorite for audiophiles." - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, March 2020
"A straight to the point good-time set of soul/jazz sparked with shades of R&B and blues that leaves the crowd whooping for more"
