Seventeen late-night mellow jazz tracks with saxophone and piano up front. A quartet of musicians perform jazz tunes such as Besame Mucho, The Nearness of You, Jobim's Wave, Norah Jones' Don't Know Why and more.

If you’re in the mood for a laid-back jazz event, look no further than this tape. Seventeen songs were played in a smooth jazz style by an accomplished piano and saxophone duo with the backing band. In time-honoured fashion, this STS Analog Tape has been recorded by Fritz deWith at his STS studio, and sound engineered using their MW coding technique to produce all the tonality, vibrancy and detail of these instruments and the band, without harshness or un-natural brightness, producing a lovely musical album.

"The tape is an LPR35 from Recording the Masters (former BASF) and comes neatly packed in the reel. Then, you have this nice-looking cardboard box with the production cover picture labelled to the box. It’s a high-class presentation, second only to the extremely fancy “Open Reel Records” package. The STS box is a reminiscence of the glorious pre-recorded tapes of the ’70s and their 7" boxes with the picture on it. It’s easier and cheaper to just send a tape inside a generic box, but NO. STS prefers to spend a little more in order to give the customer something worth the investment they make in this kind of product.

Inside, you’ll also find the “quality control” certificate, which also serves as the tracklist and a detailed description of their tape copy process. They don’t use Dolby, but the noise floor was extremely quiet!

The sound quality is very good indeed. The instrument's timbre is very accurate, the recording space is neatly distributed and you can pinpoint where every musician is, the stereo image is wide and well distributed with a very detailed presence and transparency. The illusion of “being there” is extremely realistic. I have the impression that this tape was meticulously mastered and if it’s so, it was a great Mastering work. As a Mastering Engineer myself, I have found many nice recordings ruined by the Mastering process. Not this one. Well, Fritz has been doing this since the ’70s, so, he must know a thing or 2 about recording and sound quality..." - Carlitos Guzman, Mono and Stereo Senior Contributor Writer.
