THE DIGITAL DOWNLOAD OF THE DECADE

"The best indie record label is right here in New York, thriving after 35 years." - Showbiz 411

 

"Right from the start Chesky Records had a sound. David Chesky set out to make 'aural photographs' of each session, capturing as much of the sound of being there as the technology allowed, continually pushing it forward. Every note of every session was recorded 'live,' there were no overdubs, no fixing it in the mix. What went down at the session, with some of the world's greatest musicians, was in the CD, LP, or later on, high-resolution download.

Chesky mostly recorded in great sounding acoustic spaces, namely churches and concert halls, with the earliest sessions conducted in the legendary, and sorely missed, RCA/BMG studios in midtown Manhattan.

Every session presented unique challenges, but David Chesky and his engineers, first Bob Katz, then, Barry Wolifson, and for the last decade or so, Nicholas Prout, continued to advance the state of the recording art. We hope you enjoy the music as much as we did recording it!" - Steve Guttenburg

 We're celebrating our 35th Anniversary by presenting you with a collection of some of our favorite and most influential tracks, complete with an in depth look at our record-making history. The collection features a selection of tracks from some of the world class musicians that we have had the privilege of working with over the past 35 years, such as John and Bucky Pizzarelli, McCoy Tyner, Paquito D'Rivera, Ron Carter, David Johansen, Amber Rubarth, Livingston Taylor, Astor Piazzolla, Babatunde Olatunji, Ana Caram, Macy Gray, Casey Abrams, Luiz Bonfa, and more!

The included digital (printable) booklet features photos, first hand accounts from David Chesky and Bob Katz, and interviews conducted by Steve Guttenburg with Bob Katz, Barry Wolifson, and Nicholas Prout. And of course, like all Chesky Records releases, every track in this collection features the crystal clear sound quality that you've enjoyed over the years. We've included the highest resolution available of each track, whether that's 192 kHz, 96 kHZ, 48 kHz, or 44.1 kHz, for your listening pleasure.
