‘Miles Ahead’ by Miles Davis was released in 1957 by Columbia Records.

The record producer was George Avakian.

This week I want to post about George Avakian.

He was born in Armavir, Russia,March 15, 1919 (age 97).

He has produced legend recordings by Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Erroll Garner, Sonny Rollins, Dave Brubeck and Paul Desmond, among others.

He introduced the LP record format created by Columbia engineers and produced the industry’s first long-playing discs .

He also produced the first live LP—Benny Goodman’s 1938 Carnegie Hall concert.

He produced the first jazz album in 1940 (for Decca).

 

Fortunately I have his first record as jazz producer.

Why was better the sound of “Benny Goodman at Carnegie Hall live recording”

November 27. 2015

CBS broadcast had a permanent wire installed at Carnegie. Also New York Philharmonic every Sunday  was broadcasted  by CBS. CBS master control at 485 Madison Avenue.There was the custom transcription studios. The networks and stations had modest facilities for recording reference air checks for their own purposes.

The lion’s share was done by independent operations. They thrived because a lot of people needed such recordings. Ad agencies, advertisers, performers, band leaders, writers, producers and others all needed air checks.

When an air check was required, the studio would simply open the circuit to the appropriate station or network and take the feed. Technically, it was not an “air check,” since the signal was taken directly off the line wire.

This was why Goodman’s Carnegie Hall concert could be recorded so routinely. It was not broadcast, of course. But it was easy for an independent studio simply to phone CBS master control, request the circuit to Carnegie Hall to be opened, and take the feed that way.

I quoted from the article of the IAJRC Journal – Vol 39, No 3, August 2006

John McDonough writes for Down Beat and The Wall Street Journal.
