One of the best-recorded, best-sounding female jazz vocal performances!
Mastered from the original master tapes by Doug Sax at the Mastering Lab, assisted by Gavin Lurssen
Plating and 200-gram pressing by Quality Record Pressings
Old-style tip-on jacket by Stoughton Printing
Over the past decade, new talents such as Cassandra Wilson, Patricia Barber and Holly Cole have redefined the world of female jazz vocals. Cole´s Temptation, a 1995 Blue Note release, is her musical tribute to the writings of Tom Waits. Besides being a superb audiophile recording (perfect in every production detail, from the rendering of Cole´s amazing voice to the incredibly natural sound captured by producer Craig Street´s team), this album has garnered kudos for her interpretation of Waits´ unique compositions.
Now hear how our Analogue Productions´ 200-gram LP reissue makes this standout album even stronger! Doug Sax at the Mastering Lab, assisted by Gavin Lurssen remastered the 33 1/3 recording that gives Cole´s vocals richer detail and greater body. Premium pressing by Quality Record Pressings provides flawless reproduction against a super-silent background for pure listening enjoyment. Lastly, top it off with a Stoughton Printing old-style tip-on jacket and this disc is a sure winner. A great addition to your jazz collection.
