Octave Records releases its first vinyl LPs


Press release | PS Audio’s Octave Records is proud to announce its first vinyl LPs: Say Somethin’ by virtuoso jazz trumpet player Gabriel Mervine and Out of Thin Air by Grammy®-winning solo pianist Don Grusin. Both records were recorded “live” in the studio by the artists, and are available in limited, numbered editions of 500 each.
Both albums are mastered directly from the original DSD master, a process that captures every nuance of the recordings with stunning depth, clarity, warmth, and dynamic impact. The discs are pressed on 180-gram virgin vinyl using world-class pressing equipment, using the highest-quality Neotech vinyl compound, NiPro Optics electroplating, GrooveCoated stampers from Gotta Groove Records, state-of-the-art temperature control during the manufacturing process, and other refinements. Each record is scrupulously hand-inspected to ensue the ultimate in pressing quality.

Gabriel Mervine began his professional career at age 13. He’s a member of the Colorado Jazz Repertory Orchestra and has worked with Natalie Cole, Christian McBride, Terence Blanchard, the Temptations, the Who, Fred Wesley and many others. The music ranges from the upbeat grooves of the title track, 1964 and Furor to more contemplative songs like Friends and the quartet’s cover of A Foggy Day.

Out of Thin Air features Don Grusin performing a variety of jazz-tinged original solo piano compositions, ranging from the introspective opener, Classical September to the playful Willow Dance and Grusin Likes Gershwin, the artist’s tribute to the beloved composer.

Paul McGowan, PS Audio CEO, noted: “We’ve received many requests for vinyl LP editions of our releases, and we are thrilled to now be able to offer these discs to vinyl enthusiasts. Now, audiophiles and music lovers who have turntable-based audio systems can enjoy these superb recordings by two of our most exceptional artists”.
Say Somethin’ and Out of Thin Air are available at a suggested retail price of 59 USD each, directly through Octave Records. Additional Octave Records vinyl LP releases will be announced on an ongoing basis.
