  1. The Tape Project

    I here ya about playing them again--sounds like a plan. Think Chuck was being facetious... Facetious, eh? As far as I understand it, the master tape was played and copied once to one other 2 in. tape, losing as little information as possible because it is tape to tape. That second tape then copies all the subsequent ordered tapes. So, besides my one lucky listening session, the only time the original source was played was to make the first copy. If you had been me, would you not have accepted an offer to listen to the original just once? Is it too sacred never to be enjoyed? Of course, I understand that every time you play a tape, just like a record, on a miniscule level it destroys it at the same time, but I don't feel responsible for the almost certainly unidentifiable damage done for my evening there. Also, for a project like this, I am pretty sure profit is not the first thing on their minds. P.S... well aware of your experience, which I am not contesting, so no need for the speech:

    I did notice the dropout; in fact, it scared the crap out of me! I here ya about playing them again--sounds like a plan.

    The license is by album, and they have the rights indefinitely, as long as The Tape Project remains. They'll do it as long as they can.
  5. The Trio--Hank Jones, Wendell Marshall, Kenny Clarke (with Donald Byrd, Joe Wilder, Herbie Mann, Matty Dice, Jerome Richardson, Eddie Jones)--Savoy Records 12053, High Fidelity, RVG stamp, Mono, 1956
  6. The Tape Project

    It was pretty centered--perhaps to the right a bit though. I'd imagine they have had standard set-ups for recording at the Vanguard. I'm not really sure where the piano was though.
