The Gabor Varga Jazz Trio’s third album at Native DSD Music is Cool Jazz from My Reel Club. This is a Stereo DSD 128 recording made on a Tascam DA-3000 DSD recorder.

Cool Jazz is a Pure DSD release at NativeDSD.  It is available in Stereo DSD 64, DSD 128, DSD 256, DSD 512, and DSD 1024. The DSD 64, DSD 256, DSD 512, and DSD 1024 editions of the album were created in the DSD Domain by NativeDSD Mastering Engineer Tom Caulfield using Signalyst’s HQ Player Pro 4 Mastering Software.

Gabor Varga says “You are holding a special album in your hands. It became special because it did not set this as an aim. It is special because it does not seek new ways at any price, does not want to mediate, or convince anybody of anything. It is special because it was created with the technique of a past golden age – in Hungary, it has been the first time for decades.”

“Cool Jazz. A word and a feeling, too. Depending on time and place it can mean different things for people, but for us, it is the dominant jazz style of the ’50s. If something is “cool”, then it is easy-going, spontaneous, smooth, elegant, ageless, and ethereal, though deep. This album was created this way”.

On August 6, 2021, NativeDSD Music released the first-ever commercially available music in Stereo DSD 1024. This album was one of those first 10 releases. If you would like to give DSD 1024 listening a try, check out NativeDSD’s sampler: 5 Tracks in DSD 1024 (also released on August 6, 2021).

Please note: The album was also simultaneously recorded to Analog Tape. The edition sold by NativeDSD Music is from the Stereo DSD 128 recording, not the Analog Tape recording.
