I've been holding off getting this, because I'm dubious about how the surround sound mix was created. Does anyone know if the original recording sessions involved more that 2 channels of recording?Bob Romano said:Please post your comments, thoughts and observations.......
That sounds like an interesting way of getting to surround with an album like this. While I prefer to throw the rulebook out the window and go aggressive, no matter the genre, I can see how this would produce a pleasant and accurate soundfield.The 5.1 mix was well done. My objection is that it was artificially created by placing speakers where the mikes were and recording the ambience for the rears. It was recorded in the same room both times. Sort of a natural, analog, synthesized surround. Nice. Not gimmicky. Brubeck's Time Out was done the same way. Still, I prefer 2ch. The music you know. If you don't, take yourself to the woodshed. Would you like that? The essence of modern jazz and/or modailty.
