About the Album

The Spirit of Turtle, f.k.a. as Turtle Records®, always has considered Jazz music as predominantly "acoustic" music and applies (almost) classical recording techniques to capture the soundscape and harmonics of a real life Jazz ensemble, as they manifest during a real performance whereby all musicians play simultaneously. Tradition of Jazz of course has its roots in dark alley pubs, but always the clashing of air molecules, rather than mixture of electrons in mixing boards, has determined the texture of the sounding result. This is the true Spirit of Turtle and these recordings have been regarded as some of the best examples of this recording esthetic for many years.
