The album ‘BJO’s Finest – Live!’ by the Brussels Jazz Orchestra was originally released as a cd in 2013 and received critical acclaim worldwide. This jazz band is well known for its cooperation with may international artists.
However, no guest soloists or vocalist on stage this time. BJO Finest contains their own work comprising of compositions and arrangements by a number of orchestra members, as well as a stir of a different kind too, since it includes the likes of ‘Neige’ and ‘Bells & Brass’.
The album comprises of pleasant, light-hearted compositions, sounding wonderful in orchestral performance, with forward-driving rhythm and elegant atmospheres, amplified by the mastery of BJO. The album will continue to build in intensity, like a potion we relish without getting tired of it.
It is now re-released as a BluRay album with an incredible Auro-3D® mix, a Belgian technology. The true emotion of the live concert is captured to the fullest, recreating the harmonics and natural timbre of each instrument, perceiving more depth and transparency.
About the Auro-3D® technology
This cd is the first live jazz Pure Audio Blu-Ray™ with Auro-3D®. The album is an entirely Belgian production – performed by the renowned Brussels Jazz Orchestra, recorded at Flagey, Brussels and mixed in 5.1 Surround and Auro 9.1 by Patrick Lemmens at Galaxy Studios, Mol.
The music was mixed in Auro-3D®, a Belgian technology and a next generation listening format that delivers the most natural immersive sound experience. Auro-3D® is an exciting move from two-dimensional surround sound formats to true three-dimensional sound (called Immersive Sound), achieved by adding the missing and final dimension in sound ‘height’ (in front of and all around the listener). The way Auro-3D® defines this “height layer” dramatically increases the emotional impact of musical performances. Auro-3D’s unique “vertical stereo field all around the listener” is key to that new and natural immersive sound experience.
The true emotion of the live concert is captured to the fullest, recreating the harmonics and natural timbre of each instrument, perceiving more depth and transparency. The combination of strong jazz music, with the very natural acoustical reproduction provided by the Auro-3D® format, creates a whole new momentum of actually “being there” during the concert, bringing the audience emotionally closer to the musical arrangements and the performances of the artists. Unique, spacious, very absorbing and simply beautiful.
