|2003-11-01 Milab used in unique recording|
Pipe organ, Hammond B3 organ and saxophone is not the most common setting for a band. However, this swedish/danish trio is making a fantastic success wherever they play. After hundreds and hundreds of conserts all over the world, they recently recorded an album with negro spirituals and jazz music.
The album was recorded in a church in the south of Sweden by Helikopter Records. For this unique recording they used Milab VM-44 and Milab Embla microphones. The 'Vision of Freedom'-album was recorded in Surround 5.1 technique.
