“Liederhalle Stuttgart ’69” comes from the archives of German broadcaster Südwestrundfun and features five tracks from one of Cannonball Adderley Quintet’s many post-World War II European performances. Pianist Joe Zawinul’s Rumpelstiltskin is edgy and upbeat, showcasing a hard-swinging side to the ensemble, while The Painted Dessert’s range of moods and tempos sees the five musicians working together to create something special and idiosyncratic.
Throughout the decade when pop ruthlessly swept jazz aside, the Adderley brothers managed to stay in business with their distinctive “spirit of the south” – an optimistic, life-affirming style of modern jazz, bursting with colour yet steeped in the blues. The Liederhalle concert was the highlight of the Cannonball Adderley Quintet’s 1969 European tour. From soul and blues (Sweet Emma, Oh Babe) to free-form contemporary (The Painted Desert) and lollypops cleverly combined with commercialism ((Work Song), the audience that night witnessed the sublime art of the quintet.

About 2xHD Fusion process:
2xHD is a record label which uses its proprietary system to process music masters originally recorded in analog to DSD in order to produce a unique listening experience.
The process uses a selection from a pool of high-end audiophile components and connectors. In some cases even using battery power, so as to benefit from the cleanest power source possible. This variable equipment combination custom tailored to each project, creates the most accurate reproduction of the original recording, unveiling informaton previously masked by the use of EQ, transformers, patch bays, extended cable length etc. The selection of components is critical, as many A/D and D/A converters are unable to pierce through these filters that create a ceiling effect to the sound. The 2xHD system preserves the dynamics of the original master and provides an open feeling to the sound.
2xHD was created by producer/studio owner André Perry and audiophile sound engineer René Laflamme, two dedicated music lovers determined to experience only the warmth and depth of the music without hearing the equipment.
