(2-LP set) Few things get music fans more excited than the discovery of long-lost recordings of the past-especially if they present unique meetings between legendary artists."* Such is certainly the case with Impex's new 180-gram 2-LP set Bennet/Brubeck Live 1962, The White House Sessions. Two remarkable visionaries at the peak of the powers, Dave Brubeck and his quartet and Tony Bennett (both with his group and with Bennett with trio) give hot performances of some of their biggest hits: Brubeck's revved up "Take Five," Tony Bennett's soulful "I Left My Heart in San Francisco," and both together on the hard-swinging "Lullaby of Broadway." Playing the popular White House Sessions concert on the Washington Mall for President John F. Kennedy, these titans of popular jazz have a great time informing, joking and playing the lights out. You'll want to play the grooves out of Impex's impeccably produced issue of this lost treasure. Quiet surfaces, incredible dynamics, full frequency responses and deluxe packaging will provide years of listening and viewing pleasure. - Originally recorded 1962. Vinyl mastered in 2015 and released 2016.
