Reviews :

One of LA's leading jazz pianists, Bill Cunliffe, teams up with the Brazilian master precussionist Paulihno Da Costa for bossa inspired instrumentals. The Larry Karush Percussion Quartet gives you a taste of world music flavoured jazz featuring tablas and frame drums. The music performed the quartet is an eclectic and dynamic mix of contemporary jazz and world music with tablas, congas and frame drum highlighted. A very special and sonically outstanding cut from the Santa Barbara-based contemporary classical group The Robin Cox Ensemble which features a line-up including violin, cello, bass clarinet, marimba and tablas and is super dynamic!

"Coming across this album at the Original Recordings Group site was a real surprise. Almost no one is still doing direct-to-discs, due to the great care and frustration of recording without the ability to edit, the lack of breaks between tracks, and the reduced timing per side... If you have a top-quality turntable and tonearm system and don't own a single direct disc from that era, pick up this one to see just what could be accomplished with this now-superseded technology." John Henry,

Direct-to-disc (D2D) recording refers to sound recording methods that record audio directly onto analog disc masters bypassing steps as master tapes, overdubs, and mix downs from multi-tracked masters. This approach avoids problems of analog recording tape such as tape hiss (high frequency noise).
