This item not eligible for any further discount offers!
Original Direct-To 2-Track Recording made at Oceanway Studios in Hollywood by Joe Harley and Mike Ross. Dubs are made by Bernie Grundman using the Original 30 ips 1/4" 2-Track Masters. The masters are played back off of Bernie's customised and rebuilt Studer A80, then run through his EQ board, and straight into a series of Ampex ATR102 tape machines.
These Groove Note Master Quality Reel To Reel Tapes are made at 15 ips and EQ are NAB. Included are 2 Reels, a 1kHz alignment tone along with repros of the original cover art.
Since the actual session masters are run to make these copies, there is a limit to the number of times this can be done.
A possible breakout album for Anthony Wilson, this organ trio with the superb Larry Goldings on B3 features two of the finest drummers working today - half the tunes are with the swinging Jeff Hamilton on drums and the rest session drummer par excellence Jim Keltner who lays down some truly great percussion. Aside from Wilson's exploration of Latin, south of the border influences, the recording features unique performances of music by Ellington, Hawkins, Jerry Goldsmith and Van Dyke Parks.
Recorded direct to 2-track pure analogue in the legendary Oceanway Studio A in Hollywood on January 27 and 28, 2009.
** 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.Features:
