Antiphone Blues is a title that requires no introduction. As a largely
popular bestseller since its first edition in 1975, this Proprius recording
deserved to join the collections of music lovers and audiophiles all over the
world, for its extraordinary sound quality and its innovative musical content.
Considered to be the best recording of saxophone performance in decades, Arne
Domnerus, a living legend, is at the height of his mastery of the instrument.
This is the best solo saxophone with organ recording in the world in terms of
performance and sonic excellence. Period. Listen and experience a new musical
idiom unlike anything you have heard before.
Fabio Camorani's AudioNautes Recordings accepted the challenge of retrieving the
sound and special feeling of the original edition, comparing dozens of acetates
and test pressings, until success was achieved.
"It is the result of the collaborative effort of a team, able to infuse in
this project all their experience and passion for music playback, and I wish to
thank them sincerely for that," Camorani says. "Someone pointed out that
producing records this way is some kind of 'commercial suicide.' Yet personal
satisfaction is priceless, so I simply tell you that through this reissue I
discovered once again the pleasure to listen to Antiphone Blues, as it did not
happen for a long time. I consider it a gift for myself and for everyone who
loves good music and high fidelity."
"Another legendary and classic Proprius recording, Antiphone Blues combines
the unlikely pairing of saxophone with pipe organ, and the results are—quite
surprisingly—thrilling, to say the least! Arne Domnerus' sax has a remarkably
realistic presence that must be experienced to be believed, and never seems
overwhelmed by Gustaf Sjokvist's masterful playing of Sweden's Spanga Church
organ. The track selection here is quite eclectic, ranging from Arne Domnerus'
own improvisations, to traditional Swedish hymns and African American
spirituals. Several Duke Ellington tunes, as well as paraphrases of classical
pieces by Schumann and Vivaldi are added for good measure. There's a sublimely
spiritual overtone to the proceedings, which is in perfect keeping with the
extremely spiritual (and spirited) performances." - Positive Feedback
