Info for Clear Day
“The Juno award-winning Emilie-Claire Barlow is now clearly established as one of Canada’s very best jazz vocalists. She has also developed into an ace arranger, and both talents coalesce to stunning effect on Clear Day, the most ambitious offering yet in a prolific discography (it's her 11th album). Her interpretive gifts and pure vocals are displayed in fresh versions of tunes from a wide range of artists (Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon and Van Morrison to Coldplay, David Bowie and Queen, and Pat Metheny). All the songs were chosen to help tell the chronological story of a recent emotionally turbulent period in her life. Barlow and co-producer Steve Webster recruited Amsterdam's world-renowned 70-piece Metropole Orkest (Elvis Costello) and conductor Jules Buckley to bring some of these songs a gloriously rich orchestral sound. “ (Kerry Doole)
Emilie-Claire Barlow continues to endear herself with her relaxed, polished demeanour, her charming humour, and a VOICE OF UNFORGETTABLE BEAUTY. Canada’s incomparable vocal jazz jewel, Emilie-Claire Barlow’s 10th album is all about big change. It has a big sound, backed by Netherland’s 69-musician-strong Metropole Orkest conducted by Jules Buckley, which accompanies Barlow’s five-piece band.
„This album is fresh, it sounds big, arranged to perfection, record & mastered with surgical precision but at the end of the day it is all about Emilie’s flawless voice. I found this album to be ear-gasmic, it is a mature record and simply beautiful to listen to…“
Produced by Emilie-Claire Barlow, Steve Webster
2xHD Mastering by: René Laflamme 2xHD Executive Producer: André Perry
THE 2xHD MASTERING PROCESS This album was mastered using our 2xHD proprietary system. In order to achieve the most accurate reproduction of the original recording we tailor our process specifically for each project, using a selection from our pool of state-of-the-art audiophile components and connectors. The process begins with a transfer to analog from the original 24bits/192kHz resolution master, using cutting edge D/A converters. The analog signal is then sent through a hi-end tube pre-amplifier before being recorded directly in DXD using the dCS905 A/D and the dCS Vivaldi Clock. All connections used in the process are made of OCC silver cable.
DSD and 192kHz/24Bit versions are separately generated, directly from the analog signal.
2xHD was created by producer/studio owner André Perry and audiophile sound engineer René Laflamme.
