CineSamples Piano in Blue
Cinesamples were provided a unique opportunity to preserve an important piece of musical history in its final days. Word had come to them that the historic Clinton Recording Studios in midtown Manhattan was forever closing its doors, destined to be transformed into a modern condominium complex.
One of the many treasures contained therein was this particular Steinway Model D Concert Grand which used to live in the Columbia Records 30th Street Studios. The CBS 30th Street Studio, “The Church” was perhaps the most influential recording studio of the 50’s and 60’s producing dozens of legendary albums in various genres.
John Davis, did a scoring session at Clinton and let Cinesamples know about the closing as this day was to be the final date. As the conversation drifted from the saddening state of affairs for large stages they came to talk about why this particular stage was a special place.
It turned out that the grand in the corner was the “one piano” used in so many of my favourite recordings. For further details about the recording, take a look at More Info.
