"... explores a wider palette ... it’s also her grandest outing to date ... she adds newfound depth to such varied selections ..."
- JazzTimes.com

"... one of the finest singer/musicians that Canada has ever produced ... (she) has partnered her stunning voice and arranging skills with the world-renowned Metropole Orkest ... this recording is a portrait of the artist as a mature women poised at the full apex of her skill, talent, inspiration and power ... sung here with the soaring, crystalline purity of her magnificent vocal instrument."
- The WholeNote

On this Juno Award-winning release, incomparable Canadian jazz vocalist Emilie-Claire Barlow continues to endear herself with her relaxed, polished demeanour, her charming humour and her voice of unforgettable beauty. Musically, Clear Day features a big sound, thanks to the 69 musicians of the Netherlands Metropole Orkest conducted by Jules Buckley, accompanying Barlow’s five piece band on interpretations of songs by the Beatles, Pat Metheny, Coldplay, Van Morrison, Brad Mehldau, David Bowie, Joni Mitchell and more.
192 kHz / 24-bit, 96 kHz / 24-bit PCM and 2.8224 MHz, 5.6448 MHz DSD  –  2xHD - Naxos Studio Masters

In order to achieve the most accurate reproduction of the original recording we tailor our process specifically for each project, using a selection from our pool of state-of-the-art audiophile components and connectors. The process begins with a transfer to analogue from the original 24 bit/192 kHz resolution master, using cutting edge D/A converters. The analogue signal is then sent through a high end tube preamplifier before being recorded directly in DXD using the dCS905 A/D and the dCS Vivaldi Clock. All connections used in the process are made of OCC silver cable.

DSD and 192 kHz / 24-bit versions are separately generated, directly from the analogue signal.

2xHD mastering by René Laflamme
2xHD executive producer: André Perry

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
