For those who might be interested, Americas was recorded "live" (for the microphones), direct to stereo, with no overdubs or mixing.

Balances were achieved by moving the players physically on the stage. The performances were captured by a stereo array consisting of a matched pair of wideband microphones.

Recorded in a beautiful auditorium built in 1908 (which has an immaculate 1908 Steinway grand piano), at 24-bits, 192k sampling rate, the result is jazz (and world music) in high definition, with unrestricted dynamics. The goal was to provide the listener with all the cues necessary to give the feeling of being transported to the auditorium, in the presence of the performances.

And, what seems to be all too rare today, the acoustic bass was recorded without amplification, as I wanted to hear the wood in the instrument as well as Paul's fingers "pulling" the strings.

Samples of the music and photographs from the recording sessions are now up on the Soundkeeper site.

Enjoy!

Best regards,
Barry
