New York (January 10, 2007)–Today marks the kick off of the International Association for Jazz Education’s 34th Annual Conference, being held in New York through the 13th. The four-day show celebrating jazz is outfitted with SLS loudspeakers, including 52 RLA/2s, 48 RLA/3s, 10 SLS FF2605s and several SLS LSB8115 subwoofers.
“With more than 200 of the world’s most respected professional jazz groups and musicians performing in two hotels, each housing different rooms of various size and acoustical composition, versatility and portability was key,” said Ian Hunt, vice president of Chicago Sound. “This annual global event attracts a discerning crowd of jazz enthusiasts who are highly in-tune to sound quality. However, they are all attending venues that require musicians to perform in close proximity to the audience, posing a greater risk for unsavory audio feedback. SLS’ low distortion and high clarity capabilities work perfectly to adhere to the event’s intimate settings and to capture the vast acoustic instruments and largely diverse colors and textures associated with this genre of music.”
“This conference is about celebrating music and representing the art of jazz in the utmost way and with the best integrity,” said Steve Baker, IAJE executive producer. “As a jazz organization, we must adhere to the high standard of sound quality that is warranted in this type of event; however, as a non-profit organization, we are challenged with achieving this while working within a conservative budget. Thankfully, we are able to find this balance through SLS products.”
