    Patricia Barber Higher 180g 45rpm 2LP
    Patricia Barber

    Award-Winning Recording On Audiophile 180g 45rpm 2LP!
    Includes 4 Bonus Tracks Available On Vinyl For The First Time!
    Pressed at RTI!

    One of jazz music's most celebrated and literate artists gets the deluxe Impex Treatment on her 2019 collection Higher, available on 2-LP 45-rpm HQ-180 vinyl pressed at RTI. This thoughtfully curated set features Barber's celebrated art song cycle “Higher” and four bonus tracks available on vinyl for the first time. Stereophile's Robert Baird describes Higher as an album that “continues Barber's logical artistic path toward becoming an artist whose only boundaries exist in the limits of her own prodigious imagination. Rather than just the completion of a long-held desire to create art songs, Higher, as its title suggest, is the answer to a calling, one Patricia Barber is gloriously answering.”

    After the success of the song-cycle EU tour version of Higher, Impex Records is proud to announce this exclusive complete version, featuring the original's ten songs, plus an alternate version of “The Opera Song”, featuring lyric soprano Katherine Werbiansky, and three gorgeous new standards (“Early Autumn”, “In Your Own Sweet Way” and “Secret Love”). Legendary recording and mix engineer Jim Anderson's meticulous production provides masterly rendering of every detail, harmonic, and hushed background, while the delicate touch of mastering engineer Scott Hull helps to pull you into the wide-ranging space of this incredible work.

    Impex's hushed surfaces and incredibly rendered soundstage are brilliantly served by these expressive tracks, bringing out both the core of Barber's hushed delivery and the dynamic interplay of her crack backing band. The package includes an expanded large-format booklet (featuring a new write up from Patricia Barber herself!) and deluxe finishing for a luxurious tactile experience that matches the audio. As with every record we make, our goal is to enhance the enveloping sound and emotional pull of singular works by one of our greatest talents. Higher is the amazing next chapter in our odyssey and a superb listening experience for fans and audiophiles alike.

    The Famous Sound of Three Blind Mice Vol. 1 180g 2LP

    Available For The First Time On Vinyl!
    Deluxe 180g Double LP!
    Mastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering!

    By 1998, interest in Takeshi “Tee” Fujii's phenomenal success with his Three Blind Mice jazz label led him to make a compilation of his favorite tracks. He chose across a wide swath of recordings between 1973 and 1978 for the resulting album, which he titled The Famous Sound of Three Blind Mice, Vol. 1. The most popular tunes (“Blow Up”, “Misty”, “The Lady Is a Tramp”, “Scandinavian Suite”, and “Midnight Sunrise”) were all included.

    Japanese, German and American CDs provided fans around the world access to Tee's singular vision and taste. It's only now, for the first time ever, a 180-gram LP has captured the excitement and sonic detail of these seminal tracks. Impex's deluxe set includes 10 tracks, mastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering, and spread across four heavy-vinyl sides that let the music “breathe” like never before.

    This gatefold jacket features new art recreating the feel and style of TBM's designer Ben Nishizawa. Take advantage of this rare opportunity to own Fujii-san's favorite tunes in this deluxe, reference-quality package!

    1STEP Process 180g 45rpm Double LP Pressed on VR900-Supreme Vinyl!
    Cut From Original Analog Work Masters by Kevin Gray at CoHearent Audio!
    Strictly Limited To 5000 Numbered Pressings!

    Impex Records, we are always looking to create new, value-added audiophile products that expand your enjoyment and immersion in great recordings. In that vein, we are excited to begin 2020 by announcing our new ultra-luxe 180-gram LP series, Impex 1STEP. As with all of our productions we supervise and create every asset by hand and never settle for any asset that isn’t The Best It Can Be.

    The Impex 1STEP process relies on short, tightly-controlled runs that require a new lacquer after each 500 pressings. This unforgiving format has the lacquer skipping the regular father-mother process, going right to a single convert and then pressing. Though this dramatically increases mastering and production costs, it also assures each run is more consistent from disc to disc, with less noise, clearer details and deeper bass.

    Two 180-gram 45-rpm LPs, pressed on VR900-supreme vinyl, and a deluxe booklet are packaged in a heavy-duty 3-sleeve jacket. The jacket is then placed in a cloth-bound slip case that protects your investment and brings a cool retro-modern look to your shelves. Strictly limited to 5,000 pressings!

    Reducing production complexity to just a single “convert” disc between the lacquer and the press greatly improves groove integrity, diminishes non-fill anomalies and increases signal integrity from the master tape to your system.

    Patricia Barber has always been an artist’s artist, harnessing a restless imagination and an intellectualized curiosity to create visionary jazz that breaks boundaries and reorders perceptions. She serves the chase: the unexpected musical note. The irreplaceable word. The irregular beating heart of jazz.

    And Café Blue is the album that best personifies her genius. Spare, turbulent, quirky, and slyly humorous, there is no other jazz masterwork quite like it.

    For our first collaboration with this musical vanguard, Impex’s 1STEP is exclusively cut from original analog work masters and cut by Kevin Gray at CoHearent Audio. The stunning fidelity, breathtaking dynamics and startling spacial realism surpass every other edition of this breakthrough album.
