High Resolution Cutting! Legendary Swing Saxophonist!
Benny Waters was a jazz saxophonist and clarinetist known in part for the
longevity of his career. He began on organ, then switched to clarinet and later
added saxophone. The first band he joined in 1918 was Charly Miller's band. In
1922 he attended the New England Conservatory of Music where he gave lessons to
Harry Carney. From 1926 till 1931 he joined Charly Johnson's band. Later on he
worked with King Oliver, Fletcher Henderson, Claude Hopkins, and others. In
these years he made several recordings with King Oliver and Clarence Williams.
During 1941-1942 he played with the famous Jimmy Lunceford Orchestra. After that
he started his own band and played at the "Red Mill" in New York. After NY he
stayed for four years in California. From 1952 to 1992 he lived in Paris and in
1996 received the Legion of Honor by the French Ministry of Culture. He
continued to perform regularly up to his 95th birthday.
In April 1976, at the age of 74, the legendary swing saxophonist Benny Waters
made a momentous appearance at the internationally famous jazzclub Stampen,
often known as The Pawnshop, in Stockholm.
"Longevity, versatility and virtuosity are words that inevitably come to mind
when describing Benny Waters. His career as a clarinetist, saxophonist,
vocalist, composer and arranger encompassed eight decades, and his playing
reflected elements from the entire history of jazz... Initially, Waters was
influenced by the big tone and fluid harmonic style of saxophonist Coleman
Hawkins, but he soon developed his own musical voice." - NPR
High Resolution Cutting
Normal production requires the creation of a 44.1kHz/16bit DDP master first.
This technology helps to convert and cut HR master sound source (176.4kHz/24bit)
to CD signal directly in Victor Creative Media Co., (VCM) plant. The CDs
produced with the HR Cutting technology are compatible with all CD players. This
process produces high resolution CDs with original high bit, HR master sound
source by direct cutting technology.
SHM-XRCD24 (Super High Material XRCD24) is the ultimate XRCD24 that utilizes the
materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance
the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the
screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players
can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables
you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format
such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high
resolution format such as XRCD24.
This extended resolution CD 24 (XRCD24) from JVC brings the listener higher
fidelity and improved audio quality by enhancing the process of mastering and
manufacturing compact discs. The xrcd24 is compatible with all CD players.
