The BBB Featuring Bernie Dresel's - 'Live N' Bernin' with AEA Ribbons

Wed 12 Oct 2016

The BBB featuring legendary big band drummer, Bernie Dresel – Live N’ Bernin CD is out now! Bernie Dresel’s jazz orchestra, The BBB, is without question one of Los Angeles’ most exciting large, contemporary jazz ensembles. Modern Drummer magazine’s readers’ poll named Bernie “Best Big Band Drummer”. With the sheer exhilaration of big band jazz, intense swing and fiery soloing, the 16-piece BBB ensemble is powered by Bernie Dresel’s extraordinary drumming talents.

Produced by Gary Reber, now you can hear The BBB live in action with AEA ribbons in multiple audio formats, including Auro-3D® 11.1-channel Blu-ray, 5.1-channel SACD/CD, audiophile vinyl LP, reel-to-reel audiophile tape (The Tape Project) and high-quality Digital Download and CD!

Five AEA Stereo R88s were used in the recording: primary ear level front and height stereo pickup, ambient surround ear level and height stereo pickup, and overhead drum kit stereo pickup. R84s, N8s and N22s were used on the trombone section and upright slap bass, saxophone section, trumpet section, and the drums and electric guitar.

The BBB was captured on ProTools from which an Auro- 3D 9.1-channel master audio soundtrack was derived. The performance fed to an API mixing console with ATI 8MX2 audiophile microphone preamps, using the large MU3 Studio On Wheels remote recording truck to capture the tracks on ProTools and monitor the recording.
