Jim Anderson Presented:
"Jazz in Surround - 'Sixteen Sunsets' and 'Modern Cool'
On the Grammy nominated recording "Sixteen Sunsets," soprano saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom and her quartet take on the musical challenge of playing ballads, both standards and originals, in exquisitely slow tempos. Engineer and co-producer Jim Anderson's goal was to translate these intentions into a convincing, believable and enveloping sonic soundscape in 5.1 surround. The recording was conceived with surround sound in mind. Jim will play selections from the album in surround and discuss the production process.
On the Grammy winning recording "Modern Cool," by Patricia Barber, Jim Anderson revisited an audiophile classic and reinvented it's sound.
