Oscar Peterson's 1971 live album
For fifty years, a recording of the Oscar Peterson Trio’s 1971 show at the historic Tonhalle Zürich sat in archives. That was until Mack Avenue partnered with AudioShake to make this performance available as a live album.
As audio engineers know, live recordings often have fair amounts of bleed and crowd noise that can make mastering a challenge. Mack Avenue used AudioShake to extract high-quality stems from the live recording, separating the piano, drums, and bass played by Peterson, Louis Hayes, and Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen, respectively. Once extracted, the stems were then mastered by Mack Avenue’s producer for the “Live in Zurich” project. AudioShake’s AI turned a singular recording from the late 20th century into a master album released across digital, vinyl, and CD.
