Blue Coast set a new standard in audio excellence with the Blue Coast Collection. This award winning collection of songs has been recognized by audiophiles and casual listeners for its sonic precision combined with passionate musical performances. Performed in the studio without the use of headphones, overdubs or digital effects, these sessions led to a proprietary recording technique called Extended Sound Environment (E.S.E.), which creates a holographic sensation for both surround and stereo recordings. Now, Blue Coast offers its second such release.
A classic collection of songs ranging from the Beatles to Duke Ellington to Stephen Foster, performed by a master technician on an 1885 Steinway. Recorded without any effects, every nuance exposes the character of the music and the instrument. Art Lande’s control of melody, silence and tone provide the backdrop for candlelight evenings, misty mornings or a serenade for a baby’s sleep.
“This is truly a piano recording for piano lovers; I’m sure it’s going to get plenty of playing at CES and other audio shows. Even the standard CD layer sonics are exemplary.”
