A new TURTLE RECORDSĀ® production...

October 18th, 2012

A very long time wish came true this week...
A recording production with Jazz piano player Marc van Roon. We knew each other from The Conservatory in The Hague in the eighties, but somehow our paths never crossed again. Until now, and this week we recorded a fantastic set of Marc's compositions, standards and improvisations with his trio with Martijn Vink (drums) and Clemens van der Feen (Double bass).
The picture shows the Evangelisch Lutherse kerk in Haarlem(Holland) where we constructed an innovative microphone setting and surrounding with strategically placed curtains to create an ideal sound scape for the atmospheric music and sounds this trio performs. A great recording in the tradition of "audiophile" Turtle Records®. Like all current Turtle productions the record will be licensed to and released as Hybrid Stereo+Surround SACD on the HQ|NORTHSTAR/Challenge Jazz label. Former Turtle member Harry van Dalen came in as well as a guest producer, which was a joy!
