Description:Audiophile quality vinyl LP version of the classic album by Bill Charlap and his wonderful NY Trio!

After Bill Charlap was "discovered" by the Japanese independent Venus Records with his wonderful debut album for the label 'S Wonderful, he signed with Blue Note. Because of the contract terms, Charlap's name can no longer apper prominently on albums he records for Venus. Hence the anonymous moniker "New York Trio."

But make no mistake. This is Bill Charlap's trio. And what a trio! Veteran Jay Leonhart's bass sounds deep, lyrical and authoritative, and cutting-edge drummer Bill Stewart's surprisingly traditional drumming brings a unique tension to this group. This unusual trio has recorded six albums for Venus Records at the pace of one each year, and this is their first of the celebrated series.

One of the best interpreters of the Great American Songbook, Charlap dazzles us with his beautiful touch and tone, faithful rendering of original melodies and subtle addition of modern sensibilities. Selections are mostly medium to slow tempo ballads. As the title suggests, this is clearly music for the night.

Recorded by Katherine Miller, this LP is also an audiophile reference-class recording. If you have a good audio system, you will be impressed with the big, deep bass tones and shimmering cymbals in addition to the clear and warm piano sound. The 180g vinyl, pressed in the state-of-the-art pressing plant in Japan, is dead quiet!

Recorded at "The Studio" in New York in June 2001 by Katherine Miller; Venus Hyper Magnum Sound 24-bit mastering. Cutting engineer: Kazumi Tezuka.
