Following the successful release of “Dave Brubeck Redux”, “Ella On Our Mind” was recorded “off-the-floor” in 2 tracks at 15 ips, with no overdubs or edits, using the purest audiophile analog techniques. The recording captures the dynamics of 5 talented musicians from L.A.’s pool of outstanding jazz musicians and singers.
The L.A. Network project was born as a collaboration between two veteran recording engineers and producers – 2xHD’s president André Perry and Resonance Records’ president George Klabin – with the idea of creating a high-end rendition of Dave Brubeck’s most memorable compositions. Perry and Klabin have collaborated on many projects over the last 5 years, including high-res remastering of famous albums by Bill Evans, Wes Montgomery, Jaco Pastorius, Stan Getz, Sarah Vaughan, Shirley Horn, and others.
This second album by the L.A. Network has a unique collection of fresh renditions of Ella Fitzgerald’s favotites. Featuring solo vocals by Grammy nominated singer/trombonist Aubrey Logan and multi-instrumentalist/composer/singer Bill Cantos, the recording took place in November 2019 and was done in analogue, ‘off-the-floor’ with no overdubs and no edits, at 15 ips 2 tracks, using the purest of audiophile analog techniques.
