I just discovered this Kisckstarter project : Jérôme Sabbagh limited edition vinyl album of the Turn and I thought that I should share it with you.
These are the opening words of Jérôme :
“Last year, I recorded The Turn, my third album with my longtime jazz quartet featuring Ben Monder, Joe Martin and Ted Poor. Renowned engineer James Farber recorded us all in a room at Sear Sound in New York without headphones, live to two track analog tape, the way records used to be made. The record has just come out on Bee Jazz in Europe and on Sunnyside in the US, on CD and download.
My goal is to get the album cut for vinyl by mastering legend Doug Sax at The Mastering Lab. Doug has already mastered the record for digital and has cut some of the best sounding LPs of the last forty years, so he would be the perfect person to handle the cutting. We will then press 500 copies at Quality Records Pressings, one of the very best plants for pressing records in the USA, and one that presses many of the very expensive audiophile reissue LPs. As much as I am proud of the way this record sounds on CD and download, I think it will sound even better on vinyl. Most importantly, it will also be affordable: $20, including domestic shipping.”
The music is really good and it already sounds great on my Mac speakers, now how will it be sounding on a real set-up ? I’m quite sure it will be amazing !
