High-resolution audio files are very large. While this website is being relaunched, please be aware that not all downloadable product variations will be available for immediate downloading. I’m uploading the default 2.0 Stereo WAV versions as I bring each album online, which means they should properly download when purchased. However, delivery of other variations will be slightly delayed (usually within a couple of hours). I will be uploading specific orders on a first come first served basis to a Google drive and sharing it with each customer for downloading. Please be patient. I have over 3 TB of audio files to upload to the cloud and it is going to take some time. If you have any questions, problems, or comments, please feel free to contact me (see contact page)

Laurence Juber – Guitar Noir

$19.98$22.98

LJ’s “Guitar Noir” is the best selling album in the AIX Records catalog. This recording has become the reference standard against which all acoustic guitar recordings are measured.

Clear

If you’re a guitarist, you know the name Laurence Juber. In his former life, Laurence was invited by Sir Paul McCartney to become a member of Wings. In fact, he has had the honor of performing with all of the Beatles except John Lennon. Over the past decade or so, he has been become one of the top finger-style acoustic players in the world. His compositional and arranging skills are as strong as his virtuosity. Joined here with Domenic Genova and Steve Forman, LJ expands pieces in a bluesier/jazzier direction — a perfect balance especially for a high-resolution, 5.1 channel surround project.

If you’ve seen the Nitty Gritty Surround disc (the one that walked away with Best Additional Features and Best of Show at the First Annual Surround Music Awards), you’ll appreciate the depth of features and production value of this disc. We’ve gone all out. Beautifully shot video, multiple camera angles for a performance and guitar lesson, extensive photo gallery and biography, interviews, rehearsal footage, printable TAB notation, web connections and so much more!

And the sound of the disc has established Guitar Noir as a true reference disc! This is the project that has won multiple Surround Music Award nominations, topped the DVD Etc list of “The 20 Best Sounding Multi-Channel Releases” AND won the 2005 “DEMMY” award from the Consumer Electronics Association for “Best High-Resolution, Multi-Channel Track”.

But it’s the sound that transcends believability! The richness of LJ’s signature series Martin guitar extends deeper through the acoustic bass and is contrasted with lots of ultra-frequency metallic percussion tastefully played…and captured using 96 kHz/24-bits. The sound on this disc is as perfect as I know how to make. I hope you agree. In fact, this is our best selling title and has become a reference standard for all guitarists and audiophiles.

This is a must have for all aspiring guitarists and especially for fans of Laurence Juber.
