This a track recorded with a tiny Zoom H2 stereo recorder during a "Note forget, the project" recent gig at "L'entrepot" in Paris.
"1909" is an original composition by double bass player Erwann Ricordeau and this version introduces a new drummer in the band, Sebastien Grenat in his first live concert with the group.
I mastered the recording in Presonus Studio One Pro using Nomad factory Magnetic and Cosmos plugins receiving clock signal from Antelope audio/10M atomic clock. There's plenty of dynamic range here and I was lucky to seat just in front of the stage, enjoying a cool Belgium beer... so close your eyes and imagine you're there!

Wow. Hard to believe it was recorded with such basic front-end gear. Your sound is always excellent and this is no exception. I also enjoyed the performance.

Thanks for the nice words!
I bought the Zoom h2 because I needed a compact and affordable recorder because I contribute to the French audiopro magazine RĂ©alisason for a year now and it's convenient for interviews.
My son Joseph started to use it to keep trace of compositions ideas when he plays his guitar and we realized it sounded rather good.
Since that, I've been using it for sound effects and ambiance recordings with good results but this was the first time I put it in front of a band.
This simple recordings are useful to my jazzmen friends to analyze what was good and not so good in their performance, then work and rehearse to make it better.
The basic trick told by the recording Masters of the 50/60s is : put the microphone where it sounds good.
As I said, I was in front of the stage and I only had to rebalance slightly the stereo image to the left with the binaural panner, where the piano was, because I was a little too close to the drums... And this new drummer is like thunder sometimes
The Nomad factory plugs helped me to make this sound fuller and I inserted S1 limiter on the main out to avoid clipping.
