Description:Single Layer SACD = Ultimate Audiophile Edition!
Swing Journal Gold Disc!


In 2014, the Japanese independent jazz label Venus Records began releasing its "best of the best" albums from its deep catalog on single layer SACD, the ultimate audiophile format. (Please note that single layer SACDs require an SACD player for playback. They will not play on a regular CD player.)

Arguably the biggest star in the Venus Records roster, pianist Eddie Higgins has released numerous trio recordings from the label. He also has an on-going collaboration with veteran tenor saxophonist Scott Hamilton, beginning with the 2001 quartet album Smoke Gets In Your Eyes and continuing with My Foolish Heart and My Funny Valentine, all of which, by the way, were designated as Swing Journal Gold Disc.

Wonderful clarinetist and tenorist Ken Peplowski joined this union to make it a quintet, on It's Magic, which won the Swing Journal 2007 Best Compilation Award. Now, the golden quintet returns with their latest, A Handful of Stars. The three giants, assisted ably by Jay Leonhart and Joe Ascione, create beautiful and romantic music in a relaxed mood.

They are not breaking any new ground here, but their masterful tastes, gentle swing and warm interactions are as lovely and comfortable as a fireplace in the middle of winter. Enthusiastically recommended!

Produced By Tetsuo Hara and Todd Barkan. Recorded at The Avatar Studio in New York on April 13 and 14, 2008. Engineered by Katherine Miller. Mixed and Mastered by Tetsuo Hara. Gate-fold paper sleeve edition. Single Layer SACD.
