Japanese lacquers, a collector once claimed, are "the most perfect and finest objects ever issued from the hand of man." Employing precious materials to fashion exquisitely detailed images, the makers of lacquer ware were concerned with aesthetic perfection in every phase of their art. …

Recording direct-to-disk is difficult enough. The entire side has to be cut in one long take. Consider a big band vocal album like this, which has four songs per side. The orchestra and singer have to be ready as soon as the cutting stylus hits the lacquer and then they have to perform flawlessly on each track, pausing but a few seconds between songs. Often these records sound stilted and mannered as no one wants to produce a "clam" and ruin the whole thing but here everything works perfectly, with the mellifluous Clare Teal backed by The Syd Lawrence Orchestra brash and brassy ensemble. Incredibly, it was ll rehearsed, mixed and cut to lacquer at Air Studios in one day!, under the supervision of producer Mike Valentine and co-producer Françoise Valentine. So first, who is Clare Teal? She's well-known in the U.K.

A tricky finish that gives the impression of binding, when it's really just exposed wood. Buffcote Lacquer is a unique topcoat that is designed to create a professional finish straight from an aerosol can. Buffcote is formulated by mixing a special blend of waxes into the lacquer to give it extraordinary properties. It dries to a soft, luxurious, rubbed look that reveals a brilliant luster and feels as smooth as silk without any rubbing. Plus, Buffcote builds the finish so quickly that you’ll have to look at the can twice to be sure you’re not using a spray gun. We completed this aerosol with a fan spray tip to ensure a fast, smooth application. A beautiful finish like this was unheard of with an aerosol, until now.

This is basically a curiosity piece for harder than hardcore jazz fans. These ten tracks were chosen by Rudy Van Gelder, Blue Note's celebrated and indeed legendary engineer, from the label's collection of RVG editions. Some of these cuts, such as Thelonious Monk's "Four in One" and Miles Davis' "Budo" from the Birth of the Cool sessions, were not originally engineered by Van Gelder however, he did reengineer them for CD reissue. On these selections he worked from the original lacquer discs, giving him the ability to reproduce sound far more faithfully than any previous CD or LP issue.

In this episode of CYCLE AROUND JAPAN, we will take you to a spring journey of Noto Peninsula. The Noto Peninsula makes up the northern half of Ishikawa Prefecture, extending about 100 kilometers into the Sea of Japan. The peninsula is known for its coastal scenery, particularly along the Okunoto coast, as well as for its rural atmosphere. We will start our trip from Kanazawa where people enjoying cherry blossom, to Rokko Saki, the northernmost point of the peninsula. Because the area's public transportation is limited, a bicycle is the best way to explore the peninsula, and it allows visitors much more freedom in exploring the region's attractions such as the lacquer-making town of Wajima.

Welcome to the standard Kontakt version of our world-renowned Emotional Piano. This deeply sampled library dedicated to soundtrack scoring and expressive, soulful songwriting. This grand piano library is focused on capturing the warmth, the wideness, the deep resonance and softness of a gorgeous Kawai grand. We spent years searching for just the right instrument. With ears pressed to wood and eyes hovering scant inches above strings, we tested literally hundreds of them before finding this one special piano. The sound of a piano is defined by a thousand things, from the lacquer on the wood to the hardness of the felt in the hammers. Our goal was purely sound: a soft, deeply resonant, rich, warm and soulful sound. This is a big, dark, warm, lush, resonant piano. It's intended to be a scoring piano. It is a piano for epic soundtracks, not fancy dinner parties.
