ALBUM OF THE MONTH

December 2020

Don Grusin's "Out of Thin Air"PS Audio’s new label is unashamedly ‘audiophile’ in every way, taking all the boxes that entice the enthusiast. How so? This inaugural release is 1) a double-disc affair, containing an SACD and a DVD so you can do your own comparisons, 2) the music itself is superbly-recorded solo piano, all the better to judge without distraction, 3) all the studio kit is itemised and 4) the player is a jazz hero (whose brother Dave is responsible for early audiophile LPs). OK, maybe I just described a throwback to the late 1970s, but this is a vibrant recording that will make you sit up in your chair, so real is the experience. It may not get played to death in your system, but trust me: you will use it to dazzle like-minded visitors.--  Written by Ken Kessler for www.soundstagehifi.com

Doug Hannah - Nashville

Creative Synergy

I buy a lot of vinyl to hear that natural sound that seems to be missing from many modern, re-re-re-re mastered recordings, but you up and achieved the same thing in a new recording. Something I know was recorded with care and fidelity as watchwords. That means a great deal to me.

Motoyuki “Yuki” Sugiura - Tokyo

Professional Guidance

The recording quality was supreme with superb resolution. Every sensitive nuance was captured by the DSD recording from the touch of the fingers, the hammers knocking the piano strings softly and gently, the strings resonating with each other in great harmony, the dynamic vibration of the wooden piano body, and even to the room reverberation. Every element was in such great balance.

Peter Rafelson - Rafelson Media, LA

Lasting Impact

Love this album - Hidalgo, Study in E, Gershwin - you are like Bud Powell meets Americana Gospel Virtuoso - with a dash of Debussy :)

Doug Robinson - San Miguel de Allende

Creative Synergy

This project is a home-run on every level. I don’t have a lot of music in my library for which I could use the following combination of adjectives: elegant, witty, soulful, funky, cinematic, bluesy, and technically impressive. I’d also like to offer a personal thank you for reminding me that a piano has 88 keys – you manage to use all of them.
