Last year (2019), I heard wind that the Thai Diva Ms.Oopiib Pacharamon will be releasing her new album, “OOPIIB SINGS IMPRESSION 2”…I got really excited!
Why excited?! Not that I understand Thai language…or know her!
Well, my answer is ‘her voice’ that is alluring, sensuous and ‘joyful’.
I also find her singing to be ‘happy’ and ‘wide-open’…and her songs are of light jazz that may lighten the soul’s burden (?!).
This recording was done in an orchestra hall with an orchestra playing.
I must congratulate the recording engineer who was able to capture well the voice, artistry, emotion and joy-fullness of Ms.Oopiib, the intimacy of the musicians with their respective musical instrument, and the orchestra hall (Studio 28)...very few recordings were able to achieve the feat!
Through my audio system, I found the recording to be balanced, detail, layered, well spaced, and intimate…therefore I did not have to engage the ‘linearizer’ feature at the FM268C preamplifier. In other words, I found the recording made my digital source sounded good…A SHOW OFF PIECE!
