This compliation featuring some of jazz’s most well-known names. Vickie Leigh, Sekou Bunch, Kate Mc Garry, David Garfield, Karen Knowles, and others, performed the songs of Cole Porter, John Coltrane, Billy Strayhorn, and some of their own material. This is pure analogue recording. The heart and soul of any recorded sound must surely be the acoustical properties of the room or hall itself, and the microphones being used within that acoustic.

David Manley designed the VITAL MUSIC studio in Chino, California, for “purist” recording techniques only, with all the music played “live” and captured through a Manley “Gold Reference” Stereo Condenser Microphone, straight onto 2 stereo tracks. The Studer C37 analogue tape deck with only Manley pure tube circuitry, at 15 ips, was used with no noise reduction and mastered through the dCS Converter A/D to create the digital master.
