THE COMPLETE REMASTERED RECORDINGS ON BLACK SAINT & SOUL NOTE is a monographic box-set collection aimed at recounting the most beautiful chapters that revolutionised the history of jazz. This new series was launched in March 2010 with the simultaneous release of four box-sets, including albums by some of the artists who participated in the success of the outstanding labels. A philological work, beginning with the original recordings on multi-track master tapes, patiently integrally remastered paying strict attention to the sound quality.
Giovanni Mirabassi, an Italian pianist, but adopted Frenchman, makes his debut on CAM JAZZ. This trio album, accompanied by a string orchestra, was recorded live in the Goyang Aram Concert Hall in Goyang South Korea on November 27, 2011. On the bandstand with Mirabassi are Gianluca Renzi on double bass and Lukmil Perez Herrera on drums, backed up by the 31 members of the Bee String Orchestra, directed by Lorenzo Pagliei.
Paramount among independent modern jazz record labels, Black Saint was founded in Italy back in 1975 and grew to encompass more than 190 albums, while its comparatively mainstream sister enterprise, Soul Note, emerged in 1979 and eventually racked up a phenomenal index of more than 350 releases. After purchasing both gold mines, CAM Jazz began reissuing the cream of these catalogs in affordable box sets, setting the stage for a full-scale reassessment of modern creative music. The Henry Threadgill edition contains no less than seven remastered albums, packaged like little LPs in perfectly reproduced jackets, each with the original print scaled down in miniature but still legible with the aid of a magnifying lens.
