Ted Heath Swings In High Stereo
Well I have to say the quality of this download is outstanding! I chose the first option which in this case is 24/352.8 DXD. It is clear sounding with a very wide soundstage and excellent imaging and depth. Plus it is not bright or stringent. Each instrument seems to float on it's own cushion of air.
Ted Heath Big band Stereo Album.
I heard Ted Heath’s interpretation of big band music during my childhood and wasn’t too impressed with the noisy LP’s of the 1950’s and 1960’s. Hearing these transfers from the master tapes was a revelation.
Kenneth Wilkinson, Kingsway Hall - doesn't get much better than this
This is vintage analog sound at its best. Full-bodied and relaxed, with plenty of detail and resolution. The Kingsway Hall magic is all there, sounding like it has not been messed with from the original tapes. Here we have tight, rich, full bass with excellent weight. And the timbre of the instruments sounds spot on, with very open transparent sound. The kind of clarity for which Kingsway Hall was cherished. HDTT works its magic once again with this transfer.
One of the best Big Band Recordings you will hear!!
Recorded by the great engineer K.E. Wilkinson using the Decca Tree Microphone setup
