Vocalist Sheila and bass player Harvie delight
the jazz aficionado and audiophile with this sequel to their first live album, "The Very Thought of Two" (M005A). This album was recorded at the Harmony Hall
in Matsumoto, Japan without audience. The lush warmth of the reverberant space
enhances the music and its intimacy. Includes Ellington's "In a Sentimental Mood,"
"You Don't Know What Love is," and Sonny Rollins' "Saint Thomas." The extreme
dynamics of Harvie's arco bass are especially (obsessively) popular among audiophiles!
MA RECORDINGS INTRODUCES THE "EMERALD AUDIOPHILE SERIES"
In our efforts to make for a more colorful sonic and musical experience, MA Recordings introduces the "Emerald Audiophile Series". It is well known among concerned audiophiles that light refractions of the optical laser thru the polycarbonate universally used in compact discs can make for a less than accurate reading of the digital musical content.
MA's "Emerald Audiophile Series" discs are actually made with a dark green polycarbonate, to help alleviate the potential problems associated with internal light refraction and enable a more accurate reading of the digital data from the optical disc, delivering the music with more finesse, and ultimately the original intention of the performer(s) and producer.
For an enhanced musical experience, MA invites you to audition our "Emerald Audiophile Series"
The following titles are immediately (and exclusively) available in this new format:
M072A: "Tonos y Tonadas" by La Chimera
M053A: "The Lute Music of J. S. Bach - volume one" performed by Eduardo Egüez
M054A: "The Lute Music of J. S. Bach - volume two" performed by Eduardo Egüez
M014A: "Songs From Within" by Sheila Jordan & Harvie Swartz
* Until further notice, as we gradually switch to this new color format, titles available in our "Emerald Audiophile Series" will no longer be available in clear polycarbonate. To reflect additional costs in producing these discs, an increase of $1.00 per disc on the MA site goes into effect immediately.
