They are working to
collect, restore, and curate
all of his archival, current and future
recordings and other material
for the benefit of generations to come.
This includes a vast amount of published
and unpublished Master recordings
in the form of tapes
which need to undergo a complex and
expensive process of being "baked"
before being digitized.
As soon as this process is completed...not ONLY will hundreds of hours of
performances be saved...
but these recordings can be used
to create NEW recordings
(many Albums worth)
whether that be something
something that is made available
for musicians the world over
to interpret and create with.
