The inaugural release of the new Master Quality Authenticated Series from Chesky Records.   This album was recorded in front of a live audience at Rockwood Music Hall in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan, using a single binaural microphone.   This technique places the listener in the middle of a live show.   If you didn't know any better, you'd swear you can smell the perfume of the young lady seated to your left.
MQA is an award-winning technology that delivers the sound of the studio.   The master MQA file is fully authenticated and is small enough to stream, while also being backward compatible, so you can play MQA music on any device.   Imagine being present at the original studio performance of your favourite recording artist.   Every nuance, every subtlety, every tiny drop of emotion delivered to your ears.   MQA CD plays back on all CD players.   When a conventional CD player is connected to an MQA-enabled device, the CD will reveal the original master quality.
