45RPM – Audiophile Mastering – Limited Edition

This 2007 recording finds the Singapore native turning her attention to songs that were heard in well-known films, and her torchy, understated approach serves her well on material ranging from the Mamas & the Papas’ “California Dreaming” (a ’60s smash that was heard in the 1995 film Chung King Express) to the Doris Day-associated “Que Será Será” (which was used in Alfred Hitchcock’s The Man Who Knew Too Much in 1956) to Michel Legrand’s “The Summer Knows” (from the 1971 film The Summer of ’42).

Jacintha Goes To Hollywood sees the sensual and seductive-voiced chanteuse take on the challenge of performing theme songs and other well known movie related tunes. The program features an eclectic mix of musical material, from the almost over familiar “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head” and “California Dreaming” to “On Days Like These” from the original British version of The Italian Job. Her almost solemn and low key performance of “California Dreaming” will completely blow you away as will her thrillingly dynamic and bossa tinged take on “The Windmills Of Your Mind.” Add in a few other classics like “Alfie,” “Que Sera Sera” plus a fabulous light 60s-ish version of “A Man & A Woman” (with electric piano and bongos) and voila! – you have the makings of another Jacintha classic.

Featuring Anthony Wilson on guitar, Iskandar Ismail on piano, Larry Goldings on Hammond B-3, and Ricky Woodward on sax, the album was recorded all analogue at 15 ips on 2 inch 24-track masters and these MT masters mixed down to 1/2 inch 30 ips stereo at Sunset Sound by Joe Harley (producer) and Mike Ross (engineer). The 1/2 inch stereo analogue masters were transferred to DSD by David Glaser at Airshow Mastering for the mastering of the stereo hybrid SACD.

This release represents some of Jacintha’s finest work for Groove Note and will be a sure hit with her fans and anyone who enjoys audiophile quality female vocals!
