Art Tatum re-performance album

#1 Post by trev » Wed May 21, 2008 7:00 pm

"Last year, Sony BMG and Zenph Studios re-recorded Tatum's 1949 concert at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. They placed a state-of-the-art Yamaha Disklavier Pro concert grand piano on the same stage in the same spot that Tatum played and recorded a flawless re-performance on modern equipment before a live audience."

"Zenph's unique technique turns audio recordings into live performances that precisely replicate the original recording, but offer vastly improved sound quality. Listeners are transported back to the moment of creation and experience Tatum's playing as if they were in the room when the original recordings were made."

Apparently the results are brilliant, but there's something not-quite-right about it - I mean it's not really an Art Tatum album...

I wonder when they'll release the new Lester Young album... or Buddy Bolden :P

:D

Interesting idea, but who is this recording meant for?
Will big bands ever come back?

I'm pretty sure it only works for PIANO PLAYERS considering the technology.
