Re-mixed in Surround at Skywalker Sound Studios by Original Engineer Jim Anderson & Mastered by Grammy Winner Darcy Proper!
First Release of 2 Channel Masters in High Resolution! [But see my follow-up post, below.]
Patricia Barber's Modern Cool hit like a thunderbolt when first released back in 1998. Featuring the same band as on Cafe Blue with the addition of trumpet star Dave Douglas, the 12-song set is highlighted by Barber originals like "Touch of Trash," "Company," and "Winter," to go along with her version of The Doors "Light My Fire" and her setting of an E.E. Cummings poem.
Among the many accolades received, DownBeat Magazine gave the album a coveted "5 Stars" review calling it "sonically, one of the best recordings ever made by a jazz singer with a small acoustic ensemble." The response, and subsequent worldwide touring, led to Barber's signing to Blue Note Records one year later and the New York Times proclaiming: "Barber's art is the kind of art we need to pay attention to."
Now, Premonition presents a high resolution, dual layer Blu Ray of this miraculous album. Included are a 5.1 Surround remix (24/96 kHz) by original engineer Jim Anderson and the original 2 track stereo masters in 24/192 kHZ for the first time on disc. The surround remix is stunning, revealing detail never before heard while the high resolution 2 track masters shed new light on the originals!
This Blu-ray edition of Modern Cool utilizes the Pure Audio system, a new technology that allows the user to operate the disc using the onscreen menu navigation or by remote control without a TV screen. Music only release playable on all Blu-ray players.
