with Kevin Gray extracting every last ounce of dynamic range on LP. The result? It sounds like a master tape.

Count on hearing this gem in many rooms at upcoming hi-fi shows.

 Anne Bisson and Simaudio join forces with legendary producer, conductor, and arranger Guy St-Onge, along with René Laflamme of Fidelio Audio, bassist Normand Guilbault, and drummer Paul Brochu, to deliver a masterpiece of exceptional music that is sure to take your breath away.

This fantastic audiophile recording features a rich and warm midrange, with sultry tones that envelop and embrace. The first time you hear Bisson's crystal clear voice, you'll likely get shivers, while subsequent listens will reveal a depth and emotional core that resonate long after the final chord has sounded. Melodies soar with a delicate confidence through changes that are a unique blend of jazz and vocal pop. "For anyone that believes great vinyl can’t be pressed from a digital master, look no further than Anne Bisson’s Blue Mind, recorded live with minimal overdubs (only one track, “Dragonfly” features overdubbing) at Reference Studio in Saint-Calixte, Quebec.

Vacuum-tube Neumann microphones contribute greatly to the pressing’s enormous, breathy sound." - TONEAudio

"Bisson breaks no new stylistic or artistic ground, but she keeps the tunes upbeat. Drummer Paul Brochu and bassist Normand Guilbeault helm sparse arrangements that aid in accentuating her fluid voice. Fidelio brilliantly captures this essence, with Kevin Gray extracting every last ounce of dynamic range on LP.

The result? It sounds like a master tape. Count on hearing this gem in many rooms at upcoming hi-fi shows." - TONEAudio,

"From the minute I first heard Anne Bisson's Blue Mind, I immediately knew that we would have to bring this album to the world. I sat in my seat, transfixed and in awe, for the whole thing. And then I listened to it again!"

. "I hope you feel the immense pleasure I had singing and playing these songs with the two extraordinary musicians that accompanied me through this journey. Last but not least, a special thanks to a very caring man who guided and inspired me, Guy St-Onge. Something really magical happened, and now it's yours to discover!" -

Do not make the mistake of passing over this LP because of the use of digital encoding/decoding in the chain; if left in the dark regarding the recording process, I could easily be swayed in believing this was an all analog LP. In a web world of hyperbole, where the word 'Reference' is brandished as often as 'Rare!' on EBay, this one truly does holds its own with the best RCA Living Stereo's, Mercury's and Decca's and is up there with the finest Reference Recordings in classical music.
