New Kickstarter for Jerome Sabbagh "No Filter" all analog vinyl!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

This is Jerome Sabbagh writing.

Three years ago, the generous support of this board on the other side of the world helped make a vinyl pressing of my album "The Turn" a reality in New York. I wanted to say hi and keep everyone posted about a new endeavor. I recently recorded a new album, "No Filter", a project I co-lead with my old friend - and fantastic guitarist - Greg Tuohey. I am raising funds to press it on vinyl. It will be all analog.

Click here for Kickstarter link

Like "The Turn", this record was recorded live to two track 1/2 inch tape at 30 ips by James Farber at Sear Sound. It will be mastered and cut to vinyl directly from the tape by Bernie Grundman. CDs and 96/24 downloads will also be available. We are trying to keep the vinyl affordable at $20 + shipping. There are also fancier options (numbered copies, signed copies, test pressings, and even reference lacquer pressings and 1/4 inch reel to reel tapes!).

 

I realize shipping to Australia is expensive. The shipping costs on Kickstarter are what it costs me to ship. I don't make any money on shipping. That said, if several people on this board are interested and willing to organize, I could ship several LPs in one package when the time comes and I'm sure that would get the postage costs down quite a bit. Please feel free to reach out if that's the case. I imagine the more people sign up, the cheaper the postage would get. I can come up with a way to make this happen on Kickstarter. 

I am happy to answer any and all questions. I remain indebted to all of you who backed me last time and hope you might consider supporting this as well.

Thank you!

Jerome Sabbagh

Friend of SNA , Jerome Sabbagh did a wonderful interview with me a few years back. Many SNA members supported the pledge for " THE TURN", and all were knocked out by the excellent performances, and pristine records that we received.

This new endeavour should be just as collectable and worthy of support.

 

Perhaps @Marc could provide a link to that interview to refresh the memory.

As I very happy owner and fan of "The Turn", I want a copy of Jerome's new album for sure. The shipping to Australia is expensive though.

 

I would be happy to be the distribution point in Perth for any Western Australians interested in a group buy to bring the shipping costs down.

Jerome promises to give us some updates as things progress. I think the group purchase idea was used last time effectively. Perhaps those pledging could indicate here, and we can organise things.

I think Jerome even provided an autographed copy for a prize - nice gesture.

Billy.

@Zen Mister Rainy, cold and grey, actually! And I have to go do some teaching. But I'm going to hear Andrew Cyrille at the Village Vanguard tonight and I'm looking forward to it!

No turn table here but I’ll buy the album from HDtracks like the last one.

Thanks @Sime! I appreciate it. If you feel like it, you can preorder the 96/24 download right on the Kickstarter page. It's the second reward down. But no pressure. HD Tracks will probably have it - and/or Acoustic Sounds - when the time comes, we haven't worked that out yet.

@Sime No, we made the call to go with 96/24. I liked the 192/24 a lot last time but it seems a lot of people prefer 96/24, as it's a smaller file. Last time, HD Tracks and Sunnyside Records took it upon themselves to downsample the 192/24 to 96/24 and also sell that. It's just too costly for me to do both a proper 192/24 and a proper 96/24. I don't trust downsampling.

 

Also, Bernie Grundman, who is mastering this one, really likes his modified Lavry Gold analogue to digital converters, which only go to 96/24. He also has JCF converters, which do 192/24, but keeping it 96/24 actually allows me to hear both converters and pick the best one. I think overall it's for the best, and the benefits will outweigh the drawbacks.

Count me in too - for the LP, but the custom 96/24 digital sounds interesting too - maybe both

Just had look at the Kickstarter details - an awesome and heaps clever way to bring it to the people and of getting involved in helping the project in the infancy. Awesome - definitely will sign up for vinyl and digital plus 2 tracks option.

 

I do usually get Radiohead LP's through their website and online campaign, but this is a level beyond.

Hi,

 

I wanted to let everyone know that we officially reached the goal. I am grateful for the support, particularly on this board. The vinyl pressing will definitely become a reality! I will keep you informed. The Kickstarter is still open for another 3 weeks or so. Thank you!

      Miles Davis - Miles of Jazz (Mono) - Japan Mercury 1975 (BT-5011) VG/NM. Nice compilation. Glossy clean vinyl. $15

      ⭐Mahavishnu Orchestra - Birds of Fire (Stereo) - Japanese 1st pressing CBS/Sony 1973 (SOPL 175) VG/NM (no OBI, with inner sleeve and liner notes). 1st pressing of a Jazz-Rock, fusion masterpiece. Featuring the great Billy Cobham on drums. Actually more like a prog-rock album IMHO. Electric guitar, violin, synth-driven odd time signature proggy goodness. Absolutely clean pressing, vinyl itself looks like new. Some clicks and pops through quieter passages, which would likely disappear with a good ultrasonic clean. Some creasing of the corners. $30
       
      Miles Davis - Vol 2 (Stereo) - Blue Note - US 2015 BN75 reissue LP (BLP1502) VG+/NM. Pretty much brand new. Only a few months old. Played once or twice. Solid pressing for the price.

Glossy black vinyl that plays beautifully without noise except some light pops/clicks audible only between tracks. Sleeve shows its age with some yellowing, and minor shelf wear only. King pressings are well known for their immaculate, quiet vinyl and amazing sound quality. Do some research and you’ll find their prices are steadily rising. This version in particular (FRP 5-2) is exceedingly rare, you wont even find it on Discogs. This album is a Jazz masterpiece, and no collection would be complete without it. Heres your chance at obtaining a pristine rare Japanese repress. $OLD
       
      ⭐Art Blakey Quintet - A Night At Birdland Vol 1 (Mono) - Blue Note - Japanese King pressing 1978 (GXK-8099M) VG+/NM (no OBI, with liner notes in Japanese). Record looks and plays like its brand new. Clean and jet black glossy, quiet wax with no imperfections visible/audible. Sleeve has some minor staining and shelf wear (see pics). King pressings are well known for their immaculate, quiet vinyl and amazing sound quality. Do some research and you’ll find their prices are steadily rising. This is a rare mono version of this amazing live performance, featuring legendary artists such as Horace Silver, and Lou Donaldson.  $OLD
       
      Brown & Roach Incorporated - Brown & Roach Incorporated (Mono) - Japan Mercury 1974 (BT 1328) VG+/VG (no OBI, liner notes). Clifford Brown and Max Roach. Two legends, in a studio, riffing off each other. Some mind blowing chops on this one. Shiny vinyl looks mint, but plays with a little noise intermittently, hence the VG rating. $OLD
       
      Charles Mingus - Mingus Dynasty (Stereo) - Japan CBS/Sony 1973 (SOPZ 28) NM/NM (no OBI, with inner sleeve and liner notes). Sleeve is still in shrink. A good example of post bop done right. Mingus was a phenomenal double bassist, and is supported by a stellar lineup here. $OLD
       
      ⭐The Dave Brubeck Quartet - Time Out (Stereo) - Japan CBS/Sony 1974 (SOPM150) VG/VG+ (no OBI, with insert). A classic album, accessible cool jazz at its finest. Age-related brown staining of cover on front and back, and minor creasing at corners (see pics). Vinyl looks clean and glossy, with some fine, non feel-able scratches. Plays well with no skips. Some crackles and pops, only audible through quieter/silent passages. $OLD
       
      The Dave Brubeck Quartet - 25th Anniversary Reunion (Stereo) - Japan Horizon/King 1977 (GP3514) NM/NM. Beautiful gatefold sleeve, in close to new condition. Vinyl looks glossy and new.

      ⭐John Coltrane - Live at the Village Vanguard Again! (Stereo) - Impulse! - US 1968 (AS9124) NM/NM. Again, thick and glossy gatefold sleeve, in close to new condition. Vinyl looks waxy and new, and plays through with no noise. Sounds like you’re there with the audience, very well recorded live performance. Overall amazing condition. $OLD
       
      Sonny Clark - Cool Struttin' (Stereo) - Blue Note - Europe DOL 2015 (DOL834H) NM/NM. In close to new condition. Only played once. Clean, flat, thick 180g wax. Yes its a modern digital transfer, but the price reflects this. No better gateway drug into Blue Note goodness. Amazing hard bop, one of my favourites. $OLD
       
      Sonny Rollins Quartet - Tenor Madness (Stereo) - Europe DOL 2015 (DOL871H) NM/NM. In close to new condition. Only played once. Again, a digital transfer, but so affordable. Monster album for the hard bop tenor sax fan. $OLD
       
      Terumasa Hino - Trans-blue (Stereo) - Japan CBS/Sony 1985 (28AH 1835) NM/NM. Lovely group of jazz standards, performed with the backing of a full set of strings. Vinyl looks clean, and plays with no issue. $OLD
       
      Chaka Khan / Freddie Hubbard / Joe Henderson / Chick Corea / Stanley Clarke / Lenny White - Echoes of an Era (Stereo) - Japan Elektra 1982 (P-11138) VG/NM. What a line up! Amazing vocal jazz. Chaka Khan is a powerhouse. Fingerprints/marks on the cover (more obvious against the gold). Gatefold. Glossy clean vinyl otherwise. $OLD
