Moment To Moment

Genre: 
Provenance: 

Recorded and Mixed to 192kHz, 24-bit WAV PCM. The 19224 WAV files (19224 is our shorthand for 192kHz, 24-bit encoding) are the original digital file generation received from the artist or label. The DSD and FLAC files are considered second generation and made from conversions using our Blue Coast conversion methods. DSF and FLAC will offer the convenience of metadata that the WAV files will not.

After several blindfold tests, it is our opinion that the 19224 WAV files sound the best, followed by DSF and after that the FLAC 19224. The difference is minimal. We suggest you purchase files for your best performing home DAC. The DAC will make more difference than the file type.

If you're a fan of Kind of Blue (and who isn't), you'll love this album. It's a slow paced album of ballads great for when you want to relax. Nick Phillips soulful trumpet and Cava's "Bill Evans-like" touch will draw you in from the first notes. The reviews have been fantastic.

Many artists have produced albums filled with love songs and torch tunes at slow tempos; they’re designed to pull at the heartstrings, or turn up the nostalgia, or to highlight the introspective phrase making that ballads allow. But very few succeed at also doing what this album accomplishes...

The album was recorded at Fantasy studios at 192/24 WAV. For your convenience, we remastered through an analog stage to produce the DSD masters in our own facility. This is an independent release specially selected by Downloads NOW!

Mood Description:
Trumpet, piano, bass and drums tastefully take smooth jazz to a deeper level
