Original Direct-To 2-Track Recording made at United Recordings (formerly known
as Oceanway Studios) in Hollywood by Joe Harley and Mike Ross. Dubs are made by
Bernie Grundman using the Original 30 ips 1/4" 2-Track Masters. The masters are
played back off of Bernie's customised and rebuilt Studer A80, then run through
his EQ board, and straight into a series of Ampex ATR102 tape machines.
These Groove Note Master Quality Reel To Reel Tapes are made at 15 ips and EQ
are NAB. Included are 2 Reels, a 1kHz alignment tone along with repros of the
original cover art.
Since the actual session masters are run to make these copies, there is a limit
to the number of times this can be done.
The inviting sensitivity of singer Eden Atwood and the sensuous rhythms of
Brazil make for a stirring musical marriage on Atwood's first Groove Note
release Waves: The Bossa Nova Sessions. Atwood, who has thrilled audiences from
Chicago to Shanghai with her superb vocal instrument and unbridled sense of
expression, gives the music of Jobim, Ellington, Lennon-McCartney and others
fresh meaning with unmatched warmth, conviction and a flirtatious touch of
On Waves, Atwood is accompanied by a group of like-minded musicians including
pianist, arranger and Thelonious Monk International Piano Competition winner
Bill Cunliffe (whose 2001 Groove Note recording Live At Bernie's received
unanimous praise), guitarist, bandleader and award-winning arranger Anthony
Wilson, first-call bassist Darek Oles and drummer Joe LaBarbara, whose touch and
superb rhythmic facility graced the trio of the late Bill Evans among many
others. Saxophonist-flutist Pete Christlieb, for years the leading reed player
in Los Angeles' highly competitive studio scene, rounds out the gifted combo.
Waves finds Atwood exploring bossa nova standards including "Girl From Ipanema,"
"Brazil" and "Meditation" with unmistakable passion and verve. Thanks to
Cunliffe's attractive arrangements, she puts Brazilian touches to such favorites
as "Fool On the Hill" and "How Deep Is the Ocean." The purity and unique quality
of her voice is complimented by the natural, audiophile-quality sound that
Groove Note brings to all its recordings. In a world filled with come-lately
singers of questionable quality, Eden Atwood stands apart with craft, confidence
and conviction. Proof of her talent is abundant throughout Waves.
