The liquid jazz voice of Greetje Kauffld with band, sings a selection of well loved songs.
Greetje Kauffld, a well known Dutch jazz singer, has sung with the likes of the American Jazz guitarist Herb Ellis (Oscar Peterson Trio) and bassist Ray Brown (Madern Jazz Quartet, Ella Fitzgerald) when working in America. Greetje remarkably won herself and Country 10th place in the 1961 Eurovision Song Contest, but not surprisingly perhaps, never released the song as she did not like it!
Now an ‘elder stateswoman’ for the female jazz singer ouver, she lives in Germany and generally works with her own trio of musicians. She has won several awards during her singing career and on her 40th anniversary as a professional musician, she was honoured with a Dutch knighthood.

OUR RECORDING PHILOSOPHY
STS get a lot of e-mails from audio fans from all over the world and they ask always the same question: what is your motivation to make such beautiful recordings and mastering, well here we go.
The first reason is that they like music very much, it is a wonderful way to express feelings and communicate with other people on a same level.
They also like the sound of musical instruments, played in fine acoustic surroundings, they sound so pure and warm.
Unfortunately most CD, LP and Reel to Reel tapes are bad recorded, with a harsh sound to close and without ambience.
For this reason they started with STS Digital twenty years ago to do something totally different and the results are our recordings with a fine selection and series like: Extended Dynamic Experience, Celebrate the Art & Spirit of music, Siltech Test Demo CD, The Absolute Sound Reference lots of LP’s and Reel to Reel tapes.
They give in these series and products every musical instrument the space they need, so the original sound can be developed her typical sound of various instruments with the help of good ambience.
A sax will sound like a sax and not like a clarinet and a piano sounds like a piano and not a keyboard.
Now you understand how important it is to record music in a good sounding concert room or church and not in a dry studio with close miking.
To get the best out of their microphones Schoeps they use golden/silver cables from Siltech/copper cables from Van den Hul and they clean up AC currency with their own developed 6 pack AC Power Block.
They use their ears by first listening in the concert room or church where an orchestra/band/singers etc. is playing for some time and then go back to their recording room to get the sound, what we first heard in the concert room/church, as natural as possible.
It is usual dictated by placing the microphones not to close, they also put a lot of effort in mixing and mastering the recordings, they guard the whole recording process with their ears like a wolf in the night.
Every step they check the results and compare the process with the original recordings.
If you listen to our productions remember that they did their out most best to get for you all the benefits of our effort to go far beyond the best of the best.
