Thanks! I hope this is the same sax section as appeared on t.v's "Night Music" around this time. (I know Ken McIntyre was one of them).
Their t.v. performance of the ANC theme was fiery and magnificent, and I'd like to hear more of that line-up. It looks to be mostly the same. I found the studio recording to be a bit reserved.
Can't wait.

For reasons unknown to me, these files appear to be blacklisted on RS, so they have been uploaded to Crocko instead. We'll see how this plays out.

In the meantime:

The music is great, of course, and I am very grateful for all your recordings you have posted on your website. But this recording is marred by the use of noise reduction (the typical underwater effect" is clearly audible in the quieter parts of the recording).
Please don't take my comment as an insult as I really appreciate your efforts!

kinabalu said...

@Henning: It's a matter of taste what is preferable, I guess. Personally, I like keeping the noise in, as it were, but there might be a point beyond which it becomes distracting. Tape hiss, anyone?

I would like to get this session, but it is neither on RS or Crocko...can you post on Zippy so that others myself included can enjoy this great collaboration...Thanks

kinabalu said...

Well, as I said above: We'll see how this plays out. Thing is I didn't delete these files, meaning someone did, possibly on somebody else's behalf, meaning presumably that somebody else does not want these files disseminated. Bottom line: Not much point in upping them again. Pity, the music is not that awful.
