Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster - Coleman Hawkins Encounters Ben Webster (1959/2014) High-Fidelity DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz

Artist: Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster
Title: Coleman Hawkins Encounters Ben Webster
Genre: Jazz, Bop, Swing, Cool Jazz, Saxophone Jazz
Label: © Verve Records | Analogue Productions
Release Date: 1959/2014
Quality: DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz
Source: ISO SACD
Duration: 00:36:31
Recorded: Capitol Studios, Hollywood, CA, October 16, 1957

Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound from the original master tapes to vinyl and PCM. The DSD was sourced from the PCM. George listened to all of the different A/D converters he had before he chose which to use, and he felt the George Massenburg GML 20 bit A/D produced the best and most synergistic sound for the project.
As critic Nat Hentoff makes clear, Coleman Hawkins and Ben Webster were larger than life. Formidable, even forbidding presences, they revealed a depth of feeling in their playing that spoke of their vast life experiences, as great writers or painters speak through their work.

Ben Webster emulated the big, breathy saxophone style of his influence, Coleman Hawkins. When the two legendary tenor sax players joined forces on this historic 1957 recording, the results were magical. The two players show off how they can swing and yet display sensitivity playing the beautiful melodies of the mid-tempo ballads, backed by an incredible rhythm section starring Oscar Peterson on piano along with Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on double bass and drummer Alvin Stoller. Coleman Hawkins Encounters Ben Webster combines standards by Cole Porter, Johnny Mercer and Rodgers and Hart with a raunchy Hawkins original tune, Blues For Yolande that turns into a tenor sax duel between Hawkins and Webster. This album has been released in some countries under the title Blue Saxophones.

Mastered by Joe Tarantino at Joe Tarantino Mastering, Berkeley, CA


Ballads reign on Moment To Moment, the extraordinarily self-possessed new album by pianist Cava Menzies and trumpeter Nick Phillips. But this recording is much more than just a “ballads album.”

Many artists have produced albums filled with love songs and torch tunes at slow tempos; they’re designed to pull at the heartstrings, or turn up the nostalgia, or to highlight the introspective phrasemaking that ballads allow. But very few succeed at also doing what this album accomplishes. It creates a cocoon of space around the listener. It lowers the blood pressure; it slows the heartbeat; it seems to slow time itself. (If it weren’t so supremely musical, you might consider marketing it as a medical device.) On Moment To Moment, Menzies and Phillips locate their music very much in the present – in that space, Menzies explains, “where you have a moment to breathe.” And they transport their listeners to a place where each of those moments really counts.

Cassandra Wilson - Coming Forth by Day: A Tribute to Billie Holiday (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Cassandra Wilson
Title: Coming Forth by Day: A Tribute to Billie Holiday
Genre: Jazz, Contemporary Jazz, Standards, Vocal Jazz
Label: © Legacy Recordings
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 58:15


A musical homage to legendary jazz vocalist Billie Holiday (born Eleanora Fagan on April 7, 1915) on the 100th anniversary of the singer's birth, Coming Forth By Day is Cassandra Wilson's moody, soulful showcase for contemporary yet timeless interpretations of standards associated with Lady Day. Coming Forth By Day was produced by Nick Launay, known as Nick Cave's producer for the last decade among many other adventurous credits.
"Cassandra Wilson is one of the world's most elegant and tasteful artists. Her decision to channel the spirit of Billie Holiday on her new album is a perfect complement to Legacy's plans for celebrating Lady Day's centennial," said Adam Block. "It's an absolute treat to work with Cassandra in the realization of this unexpected and sublimely beautiful music."
Wilson recorded Coming Forth By Day in Los Angeles at Seedy Underbelly studios with an A list musical team including producer Launay (Nick Cave, Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, Arcade Fire), guitarists T Bone Burnett and Nick Zinner of the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, string arranger Van Dyke Parks and rhythm section The Bad Seeds (drummer Thomas Wydler and bassist Martyn P. Casey).
"A dream of mine is happening," said Cassandra Wilson, "I've been in love with Billie Holiday's voice since the moment I heard it, and she has inspired me throughout my career."
