Tony Overwater

His friends called him OP.  He changed the way the double bass is heard and played. He made the bass a genuine solo instrument and was the first to incorporate the cello into jazz ensembles.  He played with Thelonious Monk, Coleman Hawkins, Roy Eldridge, Errol Garner, Max Roach, Woody Herman and Duke Ellington.  Oscar Pettiford died in 1960 in Copenhagen, Denmark, at the age of only 37, which is not an acceptable reason for the fact that his music and playing are not on many lips these days....

Note:

As DSD recording was in it’s early stages during this production a prototype MOD (Magneto Optical Disc) recorder by Augan was used. This technique was able to store the raw DSD data coming from the prototype dCS AD/DA converters. An offline rendering process to perform the edits was custom made by the team of Philips NatLab Eindhoven inspired by a so-called EDL (edit Decision List).

The edits themselves were processed at 176,4 kHz 24 bits and the EDL was used to gather the untouched DSD data.

Several of the early Turtle Records productions were recently remastered from the original DSD recordings, but this particular one is straight from the Philips master.
