Austrian guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel, called “a shining light” by The New Yorker, follows up his 2014 leader debut on ECM with Rising Grace. For this recording, Muthspiel convened a very special quintet, adding jazz luminary Brad Mehldau on piano and outstanding young trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire to the subtly virtuosic rhythm section of bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Brian Blade. Muthspiel moves between electric guitar and classically tinged acoustic, his playing by turns grooving and enchanting. The lyrical flights of Akinmusire’s trumpet and the probing improvisations of Mehldau run through Muthspiel’s rich set of compositions like golden threads, the tracks including a warm tribute to the late, great ECM artist Kenny Wheeler. Rising Grace also features a deeply melodious piece that Mehldau wrote especially for the album, Wolfgang’s Waltz.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
