Artist/Band:Ernie Watts
Name:Classic Moods [XRCD]
Cat No.:JVCXR-0054
Performed by:Ernie Watts (tenor sax)
Mulgrew Miller (piano)
George Mraz (bass)
Jimmy Cobb (drums)
Description:Tenor saxophonist Ernie Watts is known for his studio work and forays into the world of fusion, but more than anything else, he is a jazz musician of the first order. He demonstrated that through his albums produced by JVC's GRAMMY-winning producer Akira Taguchi, of which this is the fourth.

In this intimate collection of ballads and love songs, Watts is supported by a first-rate rhythm section consisting of Mulgrew Miller, George Mraz and Jimmy Cobb. With his rich, strong and multihued tone and restrained expressiveness, Watts made one of the most memorable recordings of his long and successful career.

Legendary engineer Jim Anderson captured the magical moments live onto two-track, analog tape, and the analog master was perfectly transferred to digital by JVC's proprietary 20-bit K2 technology. And great care was taken even at the pressing of the CD: Only designated stampers were used in the exclusive pressing plant in Yokohama. The result is stunning, vivid and dynamic sounds that are sure to blow you away.

Produced by Akira Taguchi. Recorded live to two-track by Jim Anderson at Clinton Recording Studios, NY, in December, 1997. Mastered at Alan Yoshida at A&M Mastering Studios, Hollywood.
