Interesting. I'll snatch it if chance occurs.davedotco said:Interesting that they include the Brubeck recording in their film.Vladimir said:
I have always found the original release of the Time Out album to be quite poor, the recording is ok but I find the performance to be flat, uninvolving and maybe 'over' rehearsed.
To see what I mean, try the '50th Aniversary issue' on CD. It has some bonus tracks including the titles on the original album. Play the studio version of Take Five, then the bonus version, recorded a year or two later, with the same lineup, live at Newport.
The live recording is vibrant, involving and musically dynamic, nothing like the staid studio recording and remember, this is recorded live about 50 tears ago and sounds fantastic.
Edit. BigH, care to elaborate on the tape speed issue, could this be the issue I was commenting on above?
We are now practically discussing High Fidelity recordings! This has never happened on electrical appliance fetish forums.
Have you noticed that drums in jazz recordings from the 50s and 60s were poorly miked and recorded?
