Jeremy Kahn, Duets, 2012

Recorded directly to a 2 track custom Studer 810 recorder, using one custom-made stereo microphone, this set like the Josh Berman performances was specifically done for IPI’s tape issue program. The sound is as natural as possible with no mixing, no reverb, no processing, just two tracks of music directly to tape. Only 30 minutes of music was recorded so one reel of music was provided for IPI’s public. The music consists of standard ballads such as My One And Only You, Lover Man, etc., giving the whole performance a relaxed, laid-back atomosphere. The musicians, Jeremy Kahn, piano and Eric Schenider, tenor sax, are Chicago verterans who know their way around the jazz repertoire. Their playing here is delicious.

The cost is the usual $150.00 per reel. Normally, the customer’s copy is made from a production master itself once removed from the master tape. However, for this issue, IPI will hand make a copy directly from the original master (saving one generation of tape) for the customer for $250.00. This is a rare opportunity to own a direct copy of the original master with absolutely no processing whatsoever. For those who wish to have (forever?) a true and direct copy of a master tape, this is that opportunity.
