In a move sure to delight jazz connoisseurs, PMC will unveil a Dolby Atmos remix of the biggest selling jazz LP of all time, Miles Davis’s certified quadruple platinum Kind of Blue and the Grammy awarded Sketches of Spain, at Munich High-End.

Working with the Miles Davis estate, PMC USA’s Maurice Patist, Grammy winning engineer David Rideau and Senior Engineer Steve Genewick (pictured above) gained very special permission to remix Kind of Blue and Sketches of Spain into immersive audio at Capitol Studios in LA, where  Studio C was recently fitted with a PMC-based Dolby Atmos system.

“A few years back David and I worked together on a presentation of Sketches of Spain in 5.1,” explainsPatist, “and the Miles Davis family were very happy with the results, so I went to them and said how about a Dolby Atmos mix for Kind of Blue and Sketches of Spain? We were delighted when they said yes and arranged for the original master tapes to be retrieved from Sony’s Legacy Recordings for us to work with.”

 Finishing the mix, the family were invited to Capitol to hear the results and immediately said, “People have to hear this! This is the way Miles’ music should be heard!” 

As a result of the reaction of the family and Sony executives, PMC has been granted exclusive permission to share the results with the audience at the High End Show. In attendance to present this seminal album in Dolby Atmos will be Erin Davis, son of Miles, and his drummer and nephew, Vince Wilburn (pictured below left), who together with Miles’ daughter Cheryl Davis manage Miles Davis’ estate.

“This unique event represents the debut of what can be achieved through the sympathetic understanding of the artist and their art,” comments PMV founder Peter Thomas. “Everyone at PMC is passionate about the authenticity of music reproduction and our close relationship with the artists and studios enables us to do justice to the creative results the artist set out to achieve.”

Joining Maurice Patist, who has credits on the album as engineer and producer, will be Capitol Studios’ David Rideau and Steve Genewick.

The PMC sdemo ystem at the show will consist its flagship Fenestria, along with Wafer on-wall speakers for the surround and height channels, plus a selection of PMC professional subwoofers, replicating the system at Capitol Studios.

The audio specialist will also present selected tracks from Grammy Award winning saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom, with her Above and Beyond album, mixed multi Grammy winning engineers Jim and Ulrike Anderson.
