Intervention Records presents a special collaborative distribution effort with Italian objet-a records, Zen Widow IV - (from one dark age to another). This AAA 180G vinyl release is the fourth recording of Zen Widow, and it places an emphasis on highly melodic, spacious, and engaging treatments of medieval compositions ranging from Gesualdo Da Venosa, the Burana and Chantilly Codex, Welsh Gower folk melodies and texts, as well as the Bach Cello suites. These rich compositions are then reimagined through the lens of a highly accomplished and adventuresome jazz-improvised music trio.Zen Widow is an international improvisational music-jazz super group. They have recorded and performed in clubs and festivals throughout the United States and Europe for that last 20 years. The trio consists of Gianni Gebbia (Bb soprano saxophone - cornettophone) from Sicily, Italy, Matthew Goodheart (grand piano - transducer-actuated gong) from New York, Garth Powell (drums, percussion, and gongs) from Los Angeles, and is joined by special guest Dwight Trible (vocals) for this recording. Their previous release featured trumpet and jazz master Wadada Leo Smith, and like this recording was produced by Joe Harley (Blue Note - Tone Poet Series, Charles Lloyd, and Music Matters Jazz).Garth Powell is also an audio industry legend, and AudioQuest's Sr. Director of Engineering. Garth is the driving force behind the company's multi award-winning line of Niagara series power conditioners and it's Mythical Creatures ultra high-performance cables.As powerful as these performances are, the sonic results created by this production/engineering team is equally stunning - a truly reference quality analogue experience.This recording is captured live-to-two-track analog, 30ips tape at Capitol Studios (studio 'A') by Mike Ross and Steve Genewick. 7 of the 8 tracks are AAA, while the last track alone is finished high-res digital to accommodate the vocal track. Mastering and lacquers cut by Kevin Gray at CoHEARent Audio, with 180-gram pressings by RTI (Camarillo, California). The single-gatefold jacket is a deluxe Old Style 'tip-on' from Stoughton, designed by Intervention's longtime Art Director Tom Vadakan.Mastering NotesZen Widow IV is captured live-to-two-track analog, 30ips tape at Capitol Studios (studio 'A') by Mike Ross and Steve Genewick, and then mastered and cut to ;lacquers bye Kevin Gray at CoHEARent Audio. 7 of the 8 tracks are AAA, while the last track alone is finished high-res digital to accommodate the vocal track.
