Reference Recordings CD

Reference Recordings was started in 1976 by Grammy-nominated producer Tam Henderson, who continues to guide our artist and repertoire decisions. He believes that how a recording sounds is as important as the music itself. Our goal is to make your listening experience “The Best Seat in the House.” We offer recordings from many of the finest classical, jazz and world music artists. They have been acclaimed by critics worldwide and are loved by audiophiles. All of our musical offerings are recorded by Grammy-winning chief engineer and Technical Director Prof. Keith O. Johnson. Keith is a true audio legend, having designed and patented many innovative products in both professional and consumer audio fields. Keith uses recording equipment all hand-built or extensively modified by him to recreate the sound of real musicians making music in real space.
