Warren Vache is a jazz trumpeter who creates music that touches your soul. When Vache plays, he weaves music that expresses the beauty of sentiments and emotions. His performance leaves you with a soothing feeling. The man is blessed with such an art of playing that the moment you think he finished an interpret; he seamlessly infuses another tune to it, making it sound as it was just meant to be. In this 1976 recording, Vache teams up with Bucky Pizzarelli, master of the jazz guitar, known for his uncommonly sweet and delicate tone and disarmingly straightforward approach to melodic line. Pizzarelli was among the few guitarists to play an instrument with seven strings rather than the customary six, thus covering the bass line. With these two fabulous musicians one does not miss the traditional rhythm section
The 2xHD Fusion Mastering System: In the constant evolution of its proprietary mastering process, 2xHD has progressed to a new phase called 2xHD FUSION, integrating the finest analog, with state-of-the-art digital technology.
The mastering chain consists of a selection of high-end vacuum tube equipment. For the recordings on this album, the original ?" 15 ips NagraMaster curve, NAB or CCIR master tapes were played on a Nagra-T tape recorder, modified with high-end tube playback electronics, wired with OCC silver cable from the playback head direct to a Nick Doshi tube head preamplifier. The Nagra T, with its four direct drive motors, two pinch rollers and a tape tension head, has one of the best transports ever made. A custom-built carbon fiber head block and a head damping electronic system permit 2xHD FUSION to obtain a better resolution and 3D imaging.
The resulting signal is then transferred into high resolution formats by recording it in DXD using a custom 2xHD Technologies A to D converter. All analog and digital cables that are used are state of the art Siltech. The 2xHD FUSION mastering system is powered by a super capacitor power supply, using a new technology that lowers the digital noise found in the lowest level of the spectrum. A vacuum tube NAGRA HD DAC X is used as a reference digital playback converter to A and B with the original analog master tape, permitting the fusion of the warmth of analog with the refinement of digital.
