This truly intimate and personal acoustic jazz album was recorded 'off the floor' on analog 1/2" tape at 30 ips, non-Dolby, with no overdubs - a wonderful spontaneous fusion of spirit.
The David Piltch & Aaron Davis duo has been appreciated by audiophiles since their early 90s' performances as part of the Holly Cole Trio in the classic albums "Don't Smoke In Bed" and "Girl Talk".
For the recording on this tape, the original 1/4" 15ips CCIR master tapes were played on a Nagra-T tape recorder, modified with high-end tube playback electronics, wired with OCC silver cables from the playback head direct to a Nick Doshi tube head preamplifier. The Nagra T, with its four direct drive motors, two pinch rollers and a tape tension head, is one of the best transports ever made. A custom-built carbon fiber head block and a head damping electronic system permit 2xHD Fusion to obtain more transparency and better 3D imaging. Your copy was recorded on a Nagra IV-S 1/4" at 15ips.
** 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.
