Jazz musicians are exacting and I can understand their initial reluctance to entrust their music to a mastering engineer online. However if jazz musicians, bands and record labels choose their online jazz mastering engineer with care this should not be a cause for concern.If you are mastering a jazz project, with online mastering the musician always remains in control. As a mastering engineer with an extensive background in jazz audio production I appreciate the concerns. My background as an engineer has been working on a major jazz based BBC radio programme for BBC Radio 3. When mastering jazz great attention to sonic detail is maintained throughout the procedure. I was the engineer who balanced the programme on a weekly basis for the best part of 5 years. This work would involve shaping the dynamic range of professionally recorded live jazz concerts ready for broadcast on the BBC radio networks. During the course of this work I had the great opportunity to record many incredible jazz musicians such as Chick Corea, Avishai Cohen, Bill Cobham and Tim Garland amongst many others. This gave me good insight into the balance of jazz music and an ear sensitive to the genre. On many occasions the music was recorded direct to stereo as it was done many moons ago, this means you get an instinctive ability to balance music in a timely manner. Mastering jazz music is a joy for me and I love to work with jazz when there is an opportunity. When mastering jazz at SafeandSound Mastering attention to detail is guaranteed.

Mastering jazz starts with listening, without listening to the music and it's story there can be no basis for action, understanding the dynamics of the music and interplay between musicians is a very important aspect of mastering jazz. After listening to the music it is possible to take some immediate impressions and make some adjustments if the need is required. Sometimes recordings can be bass heavy, muddy or too bright, possibly thin or harsh, maybe the density of the recording means perceived space is lacking. These are the issues that can be resolved in mastering. Mastering jazz on highly optimized reproduction systems makes accurate decision making easy, ensuring that the music translates as well as possible on the widest number of musical reproduction systems. SafeandSound mastering uses PMC (Professional Monitoring Company) IB1 speakers, large format, high end, accurate speakers capable of resolving all details of a mix. 

Why not get a free mastering preview, there is nothing to lose as I offer a no obligation free mastering test and if you require adjustments for taste this is not at all a problem. You can hear the music yourself and approve  or request sonic adjustment before it is committed to Red Book CD or as audio files delivered online.  The goal is simply sonic enhancement,maximizing the musical translation across many different types of sound reproduction system and quality control.

If you are a jazz musician looking for low cost and yet very high quality mastering from an engineer who has a serious interest and skill working with the music form then please do get in contact. I would love to hear about your jazz mastering project. It may be as a promo cd or a full blown album release or single, in any event I would be happy to assist.
