Nulla di complesso o cerebralmente complicato, ma un sano e rilassante jazz di ascolto e non per questo un jazz di minor qualità. Una musica da godere pienamente nella propria sala di ascolto e capace di esaltare la qualità dell'impianto grazie alla qualità del trasferimento fatto da nastro master e all'ottimo presa del suono di Jonathan Horwich. La scelta oculata dei leggendari microfoni artigianali Neumann ha determinato un risultato che dal puno di vista tecnico è di pura audiofilia.
Great musicians and nice relaxed jazz. Clear image and sound quality. Purchased as DSD 128.
Great jazz! Clear image and sound quality. This is my type of relaxing music when I arrive home after a busy day.

"I've been listening to Mark Colby for twenty years, and I've seen him grow into a master of the saxophone and master of the music he plays."
Mark Colby is truly a master of his instrument. And here we have him with one of the most iconic configurations in jazz, the tenor saxophone-led quartet. With four stellar Chicago musicians playing wonderful, easy-to-listen-to music, the session was recorded on some of the finest microphones and equipment available. The tape recorder used was a custom built Studer/Revox 8-track, while the microphones are as good as ever made: the drums are recorded with a custom, hand built, stereo tube microphone, the piano is recorded with the legendary Neumann C-24 stereo microphone, the bass with both a B&K 4006 instrument mic as well as a Neuman U-49, and the saxophone with the amazing Neumann U-67. The result is a very sweet, relaxed sound that mirrors the playing perfectly: laid back yet satisfying jazz of the highest order.
