Mastered from the Original Master Tapes - Mobile Fidelity Original Master Recording
This live recording of Patricia Barber has all the texture of her acclaimed studio recordings with Mobile Fidelity's Gain 2 mastering system capturing all the ambiance on this dual-layered hybrid SACD. And don't worry at all about the audience getting in the way of the music. The crowd at Chicago's Green Mill, Barber's hometown headquarters, remains hushed with respect.
MoFi's version of this recent classic has also been expanded with a charming closer, "You Are My Sunshine." It's a bit of a different sound for Barber as well, where she substitutes Hammond B-3 for piano on several tracks. Of course, she let's her fellow musicians shine, in particular bassist Michael Arnopol and guitarist John McLean.
The booklet also contains liner notes by Michael Fremer detailing engineer Jim Anderson's masterful approach. Absolutely essential for fans of vocal music, piano, and jazz.
