Turtle Talk:
Patience rewards.... This performance includes some remarkably brilliant instrumental sounds. "Remarkably brilliant" when you remember that it was recorded acoustically in front of a recording horn, not electrically in front of a microphone. However, Turtle almost discontinued the session when unable to preserve that brilliance. When continuous noise reduction was applied to reduce surface noise, the brilliance disappeared. Too much continuous noise reduction will do that. Turtle put the performance aside for a couple days then tried again. Patience rewards! The surface noise you will hear in the beginning of the performance fades after about 50 seconds and the wonderful brilliance of the brass and woodwind instruments is preserved.

Tech Tidbits:
Edison Diamond Disc 51252-R was transferred using a 3.7 mil full conical radius stylus in a Stanton 500 cartridge at 80 rpm. Turtle used Cool Edit and DC-ART 32 software to reduce noise.
