DAVE GRUSIN / AN EVENING WITH DAVE GRUSIN

UltraHD

Ultra High Definition 32-Bit Mastering Produced Using PureFlection Process! This Ultra HD 32-Bit Mastering CD will play on ALL CD players!

An Evening with Dave Grusin is an ambitious endeavor. The producers, Larry Rosen and Phil Ramone, have given a good account of the concert in the original liner notes included in the pages of this recording.

The live concert was recorded by Eric Schilling and mastered by Paul Blakemore. For this version, Michael Bishop at Five/Four Productions has used the UHD 32-Bit format for re-mastering with a view to further augmenting the musicality.

A Better CD Production Process - The Pure Reflection (PureFlection) Process:
FIM UHD CDs now sound undeniably better than ever! FIM's first priority is to locate a factory that at offers the latest technologies throughout its entire production chain, from the best A-grade polycarbonate materials, to testing and accurate quality control tools. The factory must produce a detailed specification sheet which ensures the discs produced demonstrate the same quality as the original recording.

To assure us of the best results, FIM has enlisted the help of one of the most experienced mastering engineers in the industry to craft the glass disc for the final replication process. Winston Ma continually maintains close rapport with him, as well as the original recording engineers, the mastering engineers and the manufacturer to achieve consensus regarding musicality and the sound spectrum.

FIM's glass mastering-disc engineer maintains expertise in the latest technologies: he currently uses a special blu-ray recordable mastering thermal process technique to create small smooth grooves which result in precision fidelity. He is meticulous in ensuring the best track pitch and the distance between the spiral of the pits, to reduce the amount of noise the tracking servo in the drive picks up from adjacent tracks, thus ensuring the best parameters on Cross Talk (XT) by minimizing the servo noise of the Drive during playback of the replica results.

To further ensure the best quality, FIM stipulates the most extensive test specification requirements. Pure Reflection (PureFlection) discs show in every CD booklet the full spectrum of specification of a given CD in the following categories:

BLER (17 items)
BERL (9 items)
Physical (6 items)
Jitter (6 items)
E22 Graph and

The concept of UHD 32-Bit PureFlection is the transformation of a superior sound into something truly exceptional, enhancing the experience without interfering in it. Sit back, relax and listen to the new sound of a UHD 32-Bit PureFlection CD!

Ultra High Definition 32-Bit Mastering!
Ultra High Definition 32-Bit Mastering is a proprietary ultra-high-quality mastering system. This leading-edge system has achieved unprecedented sonority and musicality, reproducing as closely as possible the sound of the original master tape! This format employs what is currently the highest attainable resolution bit depth (word length) in the professional audio field, i.e. 32-bit. 32-bit resolution makes possible maximized, undistorted dynamics, and the lowest noise floor, allowing even the quietest musical information to be heard more clearly. This breakthrough results from the development, through years of experience and application of advanced digital technology, of a sophisticated A/D and D/A processing system.

Ultra HD 32-Bit Mastering does not specify a sampling rate; this allows flexibility in meticulously choosing the appropriate bandwidth for a particular recording. The higher the sampling rate -- for example, 192 kHz -- the greater the bandwidth. However, merely employing the greatest bandwidth may not guarantee the ultimate sound. With some recordings, a lower sampling rate -- 96 or 176 kHz -- may offer better musicality and more homogeneous harmonics. This determination requires careful and discerning auditioning and professional judgment. In the end, the human being’s hearing and emotions should be the final arbiter, rather than the print-out of testing equipment or technical measurements.

Recognizing these variables, FIM nevertheless tries to use 32-bit depth and 192 kHz bandwidth whenever the original analog master is at hand. Alternatively, if the original recording is on 24/96, the 32/96 may eventually be used to maintain the integrity of the sonority particular to that recording. With this flexibility, First Impression Music believes that preeminent sound is only achievable when the chemistry of the recording, mastering, glass-stamper making, replication, and quality control is right. As always, listening is believing.

This recording has been mastered by the new Ultra High Definition 32-Bit Mastering process, which creates an unbelievable sound surpassing other formats!

This landmark Jazz Roots concert celebrates the music and career of Dave Grusin - pianist, composer, arranger, and multi-Grammy and Academy Award winner. Artists joining in the festivities include the 75-piece Henry Mancini Orchestra, Jon Secada, Patti Austin, and Gary Burton. The producers, Larry Rosen and Phil Ramone, have given a good account of the concert in the original liner notes included in the pages of this recording.

The live concert was recorded by Eric Schilling and mastered by Paul Blakemore. For this version, Michael Bishop at Five/Four Productions has used the UHD 32-Bit format for re-mastering with a view to further augmenting the musicality.

"The composer, arranger, and pianist conducts the 75-piece Henry Mancini Orchestra in a live program of his own music -- tunes written for cinema -- as well as the works of composers Gershwin, Bernstein, and Mancini. The show was co-produced by Grusin's longstanding business associate and collaborator Larry Rosen and Phil Ramone. The personnel includes guest appearances by vocalists Patti Austin, Jon Secada, and Monica Mancini, and instrumentalists Gary Burton, Arturo Sandoval, Nestor Torres, and Sammy Figueroa... Grusin is in fine form, playing piano and conducting this orchestra. A dramatic version of his "Fratelli Chase" (from the score of the film Goonies) opens the set and is quickly followed by a romantic, nostalgic version of the theme from On Golden Pond, juxtaposed quite jarringly in a medley with his "New Hampshire Hornpipe." Austin appears on "Makin' Whoopee" (which he didn't write but which appeared in The Fabulous Baker Boys, a film he scored. The program moves on with the tribute section of the evening as Grusin and orchestra perform a medley from Gershwin's Porgy & Bess, followed by a selection of Bernstein/Stephen Sondheim tunes from West Side Story. Burton's vibes appear on "Cool," and Secada and Austin duet on "Somewhere." Somewhere throws a curve here conducting and playing piano in the lengthy, near-12-minute "Suite" from the film The Milagro Beanfield War, before returning to West Side Story with "I Feel Pretty," containing a lovely flute solo by Torres. Mancini gets the final tribute with Monica singing a delightful "Moon River"; Burton returns to solo on the "Peter Gunn Theme." The entire show closes on an uptempo note with "Memphis Stomp," from the Grusin-scored film, The Firm. Fans of the artist will take great delight in the program... Just over an hour in length, it is near perfectly sequenced, and filled with not only nostalgia but evidence of Grusin's musical sophistication, as well as his accessibility and lasting appeal." - Thom Jurek, allmusic.com

Description du produit

Détails

Here an editor who always was with the point of progress, Winston MA his president and chief engineer work today in connexion with the most advanced remastering laboratories .

Right from the beginning FIM engraving on Gold 24K, plunges in the breach opened by Pacific Microsonics with the HDCD. This technology is particularly appreciable when one has a reader or converter equipped with a filter HDCD. These CD are perfectly exploitable by any CD player and the quality of recording combined with the support Gold 24K brings indisputable “more music” to listening.

First Impression Music launches out very quickly in the production, with JVC, of XRCD recordings of which the fabulous complete double album of “Jazz At the Pawnshop”. Always with the point of progress FIM adopts also the XRCD2 then formats XRCD24 and SACD and proposes now, after developed it with engineers JVC, the K2HD. The K2HD is a mastering format with 24-BIT and broad band-width of 100KHz of very high-definition based on the system K2 JVC. It is in other words about the last generation of the XRCD JVC.

It should be noted that the sound recordings of the majority of the albums are carried out by the label and its president Winston MA by means of more the small number of microphones possible and restored without any dynamic compression (extremely rare)!! This character pushes even the defect until employing rather only the bands master first “Cut” than the final mixed bands…
