ALL ABOUT GROOVE NOTE RECORDS:
Welcome to the Groove Note web site. It's been nearly four years since we got started with our first release GRV1001 Jacintha - Here's To Ben and we now have twelve titles available with a few more more due out later this year.
Groove Note Records was started by Ying Tan, one of the original founding members of Classic Records. The intention with Groove Note, was to broaden our horizons and venture into the brave new world of original productions and recordings with an occasional reissue thrown into the mix e.g. GRV1003 Illinois Jacquet - Birthday Party.
We continue to focus our attention on original recordings but always with a close eye to improving the technical quality of all our projects. Related to this committment to quality are two recent developments:
- Groove Note has recently recorded its first Direct To Disc LP set in early 2001, GRV1009-1DD The Bill Cunliffe Trio - Live At Bernie's, and which is available as a double 45 rpm 180g LP deluxe set;
- our adoption of DSD and SACD as our preferred audiophile digital format since late 1999.
Groove Note was one of the earliest labels to be invited by Sony to participate in its pilot audiophile SACD program. Since then we have released a total of 6 titles on SACD. (Please see the Catalog section for format release details.) With the new SACD format gaining widespread acceptance in the audiophile and traditional markets, we really believe that these state of the art recordings provide our customers with levels of satisfaction not previously possible with 24K Gold CDs.
