Re: Stereo Separation
This album was recorded in 1958, long before the invention of the iPod, when most people still used old-fashioned speakers to listen to music. At that time it was very common, especially in jazz recordings, to pan instruments hard to either the left or right, to simulate the sound an actual band might have if it were performing in your living room. Personally, I miss this technique, which has all but disappeared in the modern age. However, it does seem a little strange to utilize the technique for a one-man-band recording.
