    I Remember (Pure Pleasure)

    Jazz singer Dianne Reeves was born into a family rich in musical background. Her uncle, Charles Burrell, a bass player with the Denver Symphony Orchestra, introduced her to the music of jazz singers such as Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and, especially impressive to Reeves, Sarah Vaughan.



    Her musical career includes a tour with Eduardo del Barrio's group Caldera; singing with Billy Childs' jazz band Night Flight; touring with Sergio Mendes; from 1983-86 touring with Harry Belafonte as a lead singer. She also sang at the closing ceremony of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City.



    Reeves has been awarded four Grammys for Best Jazz Vocal Performances for the albums In the Moment - Live In Concert (2001), The Calling: Celebrating Sarah Vaughan (2002), A Little Moonlight (2003), and Good Night and Good Luck (soundtrack) (2006).


    Recorded at Madhatter Studios, Los Angeles, California on September 10-11, 1990 and The Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey on April 27-28 and May 9, 1988.

    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.
