What makes a classic audiophile recording? Is it the microphone? The space in which the recording was made? Perhaps it's the cables used? When you combine all of these elements with a transcendent vocal performance from a musician that's performing a song that speaks to you, you're left with a musical experience that can be enjoyed over and over again for years to come.
The World's Greatest Audiophile Vocal Recordings has become a Chesky Records tradition, bringing together a handful of the greatest tracks recorded as pristinely and transparently as possible, from artists whose voices are as unique as their perspectives.
Macy Gray, Anna Nalick, Casey Abrams, Meiko, Amber Rubarth, Melissa Menago, Livingston Taylor, Alexis Cole, Valerie Joyce, Camille Thurman, Little Kruta, Noah Wall, and Priya Darshini feature on this year's edition that includes songs written by artists you know and love, such as Metallica, Paul Simon, Stephen Stills, and Bob Marley.
