Blue Note engineer Rudy Van Gelder, dies aged 91

Don't think this should pass unmarked...

I was driven to make the music sound closer to the way it sounded in the studio. This was a constant struggle to get electronics to accurately capture the human spirit.

I just really cannot believe that someone else wanted to post this. Glad it's you.

It made me think about a few things. That the man's name is known, firstly, and that it is on the cover in big letters on the remasters of those recordings. It's right that it should be - the records do sound entirely fresh. The trouble he went to, of course - he died in the house he built in order to record those records. There's almost nobody before him or contemporary with him whose recordings achieve that immediacy even when they are recorded live in front of an audience - those that there are are one offs, van Gelder has a list of masterpieces as long as my arm.

I'm doffing my pork pie to the guy.

Ditto. His recordings got me interested in Jazz. You get the clear sense that they are decades old yet they still sound remarkably fresh.
