Featured Guest: Jonathan Wyner, Chief Mastering Engineer and Company President.

Topic: Mastering the recordings made by BAS members at Ryles, with discussion of why & how he altered the recordings.

Jonathan Wyner will analyze the recordings made at the Ryles Jazz Club by Alvin Foster, Jim Doucas, JP Leger, Klaus Peter and Nick Noiseuz. He will present a corrected version and explain how and why he made the respective adjustments. The two songs selected form our July 16, 2006 recordings at Ryles were A Night in Tunisia and Blue Skies.

Jonathan has mastered more than 4000 CD's during the last 21 years spanning every musical idiom (and some non-musical idioms as well!). Jonathan holds an AB in French Horn and Composition from Vassar College, Poughkeepsie NY. He has been an instructor at the Recording Workshop in Chillicothe, Ohio and at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA.

A Recording Engineer since 1983, Jonathan began his career as a Mastering Engineer in 1986 as the compact disc was becoming a reality. He studied digital mastering with one of the pioneers in the field for 5 years prior to establishing M Works Mastering. His credits range from the extremely well known (James Taylor, David Bowie, Aerosmith, Kiri Te Kanawa), to the more idiosyncratic and independent artists/labels.
