Dynamics--especially micro-dynamics--provide a greater sense of aliveness on the MFSL
I am speaking of Duke Ellington's Blues In Orbit, the next-to-last release from MFSL
to make it into general distribution prior to the company's unfortunate closing.
Both releases represent MFSL
at their finest -- great sound, great liner notes, and great choice of material.
They are all great performances, and engineer Rudy Van Gelder captured everything in clean, nuanced sound, which the MFSL
remastering has presented in the best possible light.
has just released my favorite recording of one of my favorite performers, John Hiatt.
Those not willing to invest in gold can be well-served by a nice SBM-remastered version of this album on Impulse (GRD 156), but for the ultimate listening experience, the MFSL
version is the way to go.
The folks at MFSL
are excited about their new "GAIN II" mastering system, and this is the first release using this technology.
