Sophisticated Lady recorded at the Brain and Creativity Institute’s Cammilleri Hall, University of Southern California, Los Angeles with Yarlung Records. The album was released September 2014.

Yarlung Records  and engineer Bob Attiyeh produces albums in concert halls famous for their acoustics, including Walt Disney Concert Hall and Ambassador Hall in Los Angeles. Yarlung uses both analog tape and high resolution digital media for CDs made with special alloys, high resolution digital downloads, and 180 Gram vinyl LPs, mastered by Steve Hoffman.

Yarlung makes recordings in concert halls, not studios. Their albums captured the sound of Sophisticated Lady  playing in a real acoustic space. Yarlung  used one AKG C24 stereo microphone provided by Jon Fisher at Gearworks Pro Audio, with the addition of one AKG C12 for a small amount of reinforcement for Gary’s bass. Elliot Midwood designed the microphone preamplification, and we recorded directly to RMGI 468 tape on our analog recorder with tube circuitry designed for Yarlung by Len Horowitz and to high resolution digital media. Steinway technician Robert Koning kept the piano in beautiful shape for our recording.
