It is the result of the collaborative effort of a team, able to infuse in this project all their experience and passion for music playback, and I wish to thank them sincerely for that," Camorani says. "Someone pointed out that producing records this way is some kind of 'commercial suicide.' Yet personal satisfaction is priceless, so I simply tell you that through this reissue I discovered once again the pleasure to listen to Antiphone Blues, as it did not happen for a long time. I consider it a gift for myself and for everyone who loves good music and high fidelity."   "Another legendary and classic Proprius recording, Antiphone Blues combines the unlikely pairing of saxophone with pipe organ, and the results are—quite surprisingly—thrilling, to say the least! Arne Domnerus' sax has a remarkably realistic presence that must be experienced to be believed, and never seems overwhelmed by Gustaf Sjokvist's masterful playing of Sweden's Spanga Church organ. The track selection here is quite eclectic, ranging from Arne Domnerus' own improvisations, to traditional Swedish hymns and African American spirituals. Several Duke Ellington tunes, as well as paraphrases of classical pieces by Schumann and Vivaldi are added for good measure. There's a sublimely spiritual overtone to the proceedings, which is in perfect keeping with the extremely spiritual (and spirited) performances." - Positive Feedback

Antiphone Blues is a title that requires no introduction. As a largely popular bestseller since its first edition in 1975, this Proprius recording deserved to join the collections of music lovers and audiophiles all over the world, for its extraordinary sound quality and its innovative musical content.

Fabio Camorani's AudioNautes Recordings accepted the challenge of retrieving the sound and special feeling of the original edition, comparing dozens of acetates and test pressings, until success was achieved.
