℗ © 2015 2xHD

This truly intimate and personal acoustic Jazz album from member of the Holly Cole Trio was recorded ‘off the floor’ on an analogue 1/2” tape recorder at 30 ips, non-Dolby, with no overdubs. It is a wonderful spontaneous fusion of spirit.

Whether playing simply as a duo, with Davis on piano and Piltch on acoustic bass, or with the occasional guest on some tracks, their dedication to the ‘spirit of ensemble music’ is palpable.

For the 2xHD transfer of this recording, the original ½”, 30 ips NAB master tape was played on a modified TELEFUNKEN M-15 tape recorder with SAKI head, using a hi-end tube preamplifier with OCC silver cables.  We did an analog transfer for each HiRes sampling and A & B comparisons were made with both the original LP, using the Kronos turntable, as well as with the best available CD using the Nagra HD Dac and dCS Vivaldi DAC throughout the process.

DXD 352.8 kHz was done using dCS 905 and dC Vivaldi clocks
