Coolidge has won numerous Grammy awards, provided a hit single for James Bond movie and promoted Native American music and heritage during her lengthy career. But this is the first time that she’s gathered together an incredible band, brought in the famous Waters family for background vocal support and produced a collection of tracks that is both full of hits and adds some great Southern funk to her repertoire. On an early June afternoon in 2010, AIX Records captured the amazing talents of Rita Coolidge in full HD-Audio and 3D video. If you’ve got the right equipment, Rita and the band are in your living room.

If you pay attention to the collaborators working with AIX Records, you might recognize some of the names on this project. I called some of my favorite musicians to contribute to the project. Of course, Laurence Juber and Jim Cox were on board. Drummer MB Gordy and I went to Cal Arts together and he’s played with Rita for years, so he was definitely going to be involved.

This disc was shot using 3D HD video equipment and is presented in 16:9 HD-Video in 3D. It is also completely compatible with 2D equipment.
