Eden Atwood

While the world is brimming with singers of talent and confidence, it’s the rare vocalist who can actually get under our skins and stir our emotions. Eden Atwood is such a singer. Yes, she has a fine voice and skills to spare. But her work transcends simple competence with its honesty, sensitivity and conviction. In short, she speaks to us. Where does such ability come from? In literature, it is said there are great writers and then there are great writers with great experience. In jazz, this experience is traditionally called “paying dues.” But it takes more than experience to become the kind of artist who can touch our souls. It takes consideration of that experience, the long, hard thought of where one’s been and where one’s going, the kind of personal examination that the Greek philosophers suggested was necessary to make life worth living. In current parlance, self-realization. I remember a conversation with Eden on a blustery afternoon in her beloved Montana in which she spoke in depth about the details of her life, her hopes and fears, her triumphs and disappointments. She had just left New York City and was looking to her future. I couldn’t help but be impressed with her frankness. At the same time, I felt the vulnerability that such frankness implies. It struck me then that these were the same feelings she generates as she performs.

Notes:

We are pleased to announce the availability of Groove Note releases in DSD 128 and DSD 256, in addition to the original DSD 64 releases. These higher bit rate DSD 128 and DSD 256 releases are all pure DSD created.

They are not up samplings, for there are no PCM or DXD conversions involved in their production. They are re-modulations of the original DSD 64 encoding modulation that produced the DSD 64 releases. The sonic advantage to these new Stereo and Multichannel DSD 128 and DSD 256 releases, as with all higher DSD bit rate releases, is the wider frequency passband prior to the onset of modulation noise.This results in the listener’s DAC using gentler and more phase linear filters for playback of the music.

Producer: Joe Harley
Recording Engineer: Michael C. Ross at Record One, Sherman Oaks, CA, May 25-29, 2002
Special Thanks: David Kawakami, Gus Skinas and Lon Neumann of the Sony Super Audio CD Project
