Sorrow & Joy (Sorgen och Glädjen) is one of the gorgeous albums of Leif Strands Kammarkör. The album's primary genre is Classical, but contains a who’s who of the Swedish Jazz elite during this time period.
Leif Strand Chamber Choir began in 1965; the first concert together with jazz musicians was held at Hönsten 1967 with, among others, Jan Johansson, Arne Domnérus, Rune Gustafsson, Georg Riedel. Since the choir - in connection with Arne Domnérus sextet - made a couple hundred concerts, numerous radio and television appearances and five published LPs.
For the 2xHD transfer of this recording, the original 1/4”, 15 ips CCIR master tape was played on a Nagra-T modified with high-end tube playback electronics, wired with OCC silver cable from the playback head direct to a Telefunken EF806 tube. The Nagra T has one of the best transports ever made, having four direct drive motors, two pinch rollers and a tape tension head. We did an analog transfer for each high-res sampling and A & B comparisons were made with the original LP, using the KRONOS turntable with a BLACK BEAUTY tone arm.
