    Supreme Sessions 2 is, as the name suggests, our second release on Marten Recordings – created in 2014 and 2015.

    “We wanted to get right to the heart of the audio world: the music and the recording,” explains Leif Olofsson. “We wanted to create our own reference in our own environment by using the finest possible equipment.

    “Recording with just two high-quality microphones is the method most akin to human hearing. So listening to the sessions through our own loudspeakers in the same state-of-the-art room used for the recording gives us what we need to keep developing even better loudspeakers.”

    With Supreme Sessions 2, we used our experience from the previous recording to develop our techniques and explore different genres of music. In other words, we really went for it.

    The lifelong musical experience and contacts of producer, bass player and recording engineer Peter Axelsson were essential. He created an exciting mix of instrumentals and vocals with versatile sounds and timbres from a range of exotic acoustic instruments. Highlights include the imposing ‘Requiem for a Machine’ performed by Rhythm Art Duo. And we introduce the wonderful Cuban singer Lisette Hernandez Pigueiras in her debut recording on CD.

    Feature music from Bartók, Piazzolla and Ravel together with jazz performed by outstanding Swedish musicians. “To enjoy and appreciate the natural sound and dynamics of these live recordings, this record is best played at a realistic sound level,” explains Leif. “Play it as if you were there at the performance.”

    Supreme Sessions  1

    https://martenshop.com/collections/featured-collection/products/supreme-sessions-1-double-vinyl-180g

    Features:

    • 180g Vinyl
    • 33 1/3rpm

    A broad mix of musicians performing across 13 tracks and different musical genres present a wide range of styles, voices and instruments.

    Supreme Sessions 1 is the first release from our new label Marten Recordings

    This initiative came in 2013, during the process of developing our magnificent reference loudspeaker system, Marten Coltrane Supreme 2. We felt the need to get to the core of the audio world; the music and the recording.

    Our goal has always been to recreate magical musical moments and to bring those to life in our client’s homes. With Coltrane Supreme 2 we wanted to go deeper into that process and create our own reference while trying to recreate the moment. How close to reality could we get?

    For the recording, we used our own state-of-the-art studio that is designed for listening to music and developing new loudspeaker models. We used just two high quality microphones to replicate the way human hearing functions. We also decided to make the recordings live in the studio to keep the dynamics and the live feeling as much as possible. Everything was done to record the instant in time rather than a production made afterwards.

    Peter Axelsson is the producer, musician and recording engineer of the album and producer is Leif Olofsson – chief designer at Marten.

    A number of musicians perform across 13 tracks and different music genres to present a wide range of styles, voices and instruments.

    Musicians featured on Supreme Sessions 1
    Mitch Hiller, Tubasextetten, Sven Berger´s quartet, Johan Björklund trio, Tommy Kotter trio, Sjöströmska Quartet and Matti Ollikainen, and others.
