Clear Day is the 11th album by Canadian Jazz Vocalist Emilie-Claire Barlow. It features the Dutch Jazz and Pop Orchestra Metropole Orkest conducted by Jules Buckley. It won the Juno Award for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year in 2016.

Clear Day is a “mélange of folk and rock staples” with songs by “artists spanning all genres and time periods, from Brad Mehldau to Coldplay.” The album is a narrative with each song telling part of her personal story. Featuring favorites like On A Clear Day You Can See Forever (the title song), The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy) and Sweet Thing.

“Each song represents my state of mind, a turning point, a crossroad. The important thing was that the song needed to convey that particular moment in time.” The album also features the 70-piece Metropole Orkest, expanded from the usual 52 piece line up.

The album was produced and arranged by Barlow and Bassist Steve Webster with orchestration by the duo as well as three orchestrations by Shelly Berger and two orchestrations by John Metcalfe, the arranger for Peter Gabriel’s New Blood Orchestra.

Mastering Engineer

For the 2xHD transfer of this recording, the original 1/4”, 15 ips CCIR master tape was played on a Nagra-T modified with high-end tube playback electronics, wired with OCC silver cable from the playback head direct to a Telefunken EF806 tube. The Nagra T has one of the best transports ever made with four direct drive motors, two pinch rollers and a tape tension head. We did an analog transfer for each high-res sampling and A & B comparisons were made with the original LP, using the KRONOS turntable with a BLACK BEAUTY tone arm.
