The very fact that America's biggest jazz label called one of their albums quite
simply Ella and Louis indicates that we are talking about something very special
here. And surely enough has been said--"Satchmo" and the grand dame of jazz
certainly need no further introduction. In the 1950's just the mere mention of
their forenames was enough to light up the eyes of jazz fans. A glance at the
track list reveals that tranquility rules the day; wild stomps and improvised
scats will neither be sought nor missed. Of prime importance to the jazz ballad
is a feeling of "letting oneself drift" in the inspiration which gushes forth
from the minds of genial American songwriters.
Ultra High Definition 32-Bit Mastering!
Ultra High Definition 32-Bit Mastering is a proprietary ultra-high-quality
mastering system. This leading-edge system has achieved unprecedented sonority
and musicality, reproducing as closely as possible the sound of the original
master tape! This format employs what is currently the highest attainable
resolution bit depth (word length) in the professional audio field, i.e. 32-bit.
32-bit resolution makes possible maximized, undistorted dynamics, and the lowest
noise floor, allowing even the quietest musical information to be heard more
clearly. This breakthrough results from the development, through years of
experience and application of advanced digital technology, of a sophisticated
A/D and D/A processing system.
Ultra HD 32-Bit Mastering does not specify a sampling rate; this allows
flexibility in meticulously choosing the appropriate bandwidth for a particular
recording. The higher the sampling rate -- for example, 192 kHz -- the greater
the bandwidth. However, merely employing the greatest bandwidth may not
guarantee the ultimate sound. With some recordings, a lower sampling rate -- 96
or 176 kHz -- may offer better musicality and more homogeneous harmonics. This
determination requires careful and discerning auditioning and professional
judgment. In the end, the human beings hearing and emotions should be the final
arbiter, rather than the print-out of testing equipment or technical
Recognizing these variables, FIM nevertheless tries to use 32-bit depth and 192
kHz bandwidth whenever the original analog master is at hand. Alternatively, if
the original recording is on 24/96, the 32/96 may eventually be used to maintain
the integrity of the sonority particular to that recording. With this
flexibility, First Impression Music believes that preeminent sound is only
achievable when the chemistry of the recording, mastering, glass-stamper making,
replication, and quality control is right. As always, listening is believing.
This recording has been mastered by the new Ultra High Definition 32-Bit
Mastering process, which creates an unbelievable sound surpassing other formats!
