Dont be misled by the title This university is called the University of Soul Faculty; its the name of the ensemble of Mr. R. J. Rosswho, incidentally, is not a professor either! Yet, he heads the ensemble, so he has every right to call himself the Professor of the University. I hope that is now clear.
Professor Ross composed and arranged most of the songs on this album; he even sang all of them. His music and his unique broken-voice singing style
are definitely fine sweet soul creations.
This is the first 'soul' album to be produced at FIM. Beautiful smooth jazz male vocal with wonderful arrangement and sonority.
"I have not been a great fan of soul music, but after listening to this recording, I realized that the Professors interpretation is full of feeling and emotion and I love it! I want to listen to it again and again, in particular, when I am exhausted with work. The Professors soul soothes my soul. The sound? Wonderful. Enjoy." - Winston Ma
DXD Digital eXtreme Definition:
Digital eXtreme Definition (DXD) is an audio encoding scheme that was developed for editing high-resolution recordings because DSD, the audio standard used on Super Audio CD is not ideally suited for editing. DXD is a PCM-like signal with 24-bit resolution sampled at 352.8 kHz - eight times 44.1 kHz, the sampling frequency of Red Book CD. The data rate is 11.2896 Mbit/s - four times that of DSD!
FIM/LIM DXD CDs have taken this a step further to bring you closer to the source. Instead of making two or more sample rate conversions as with SACD, FIM/LIM recorded the source in DXD! The data rate for a DXD mono signal is 8467.2MHz, or more than 3X the data rate of a typical SACD! Experience the closest you can get to the original performance in the comfort of your home!
