MARANTZ – KEN ISHIWATA’S 30TH ANNIVERSARY SAMPLER (HYBRID SACD)
To mark the introduction of a new series of Marantz Reference components, the Marantz KI Pearls, this very special hybrid Super Audio CD was created for this occasion. This album of demo-quality tracks was produced by Mr. Ken Ishiwata himself. The recordings were made using the world’s finest equipment to capture these all-acoustic recordings in the most realistic way possible.
The disc is a jazz lover’s dream, with classics such Gershwin’s Summertime, Ellington’s Satin Doll, Jobim’s Girl from Ipanema, and other impeccable standards such as Body and Soul, Autumn Leaves, Misty and All the Things You Are. The performers are some of Europe’s most heralded studio and performing musicians. These tracks were recorded in a small European studio, famous for its natural acoustic ambience. The recording is simple; you will hear the instruments played back in front of you, as if inside the studio. The stereo imaging is startlingly realistic but it’s the emotion of the players, together, which will make your hair stand on end!
Everyone should be familiar these tunes, leaving you to focus in on the rich intensity of the music the way it is meant to be! Our highest recommendation
