"Four Stars ... here's a young European jazz outfit that has a distinct personality ... the quintet's upfront deportment is consummated by interweaving progressions and climactic pieces riding above variable currents. One of many outwardly enticing attributes is how sublime choruses often feel like they are on the verge of exploding into impacting sojourns, even when they don't ... has great replay value due to its magnetic appeal, where various jazz-laced inferences translucently morph into an enticing programme that draws you deeper and deeper into its core on repeated spins."
- All About Jazz

This debut live album from Zurich-based tenor saxophonist Christoph Irniger's quintet Pilgrim was recorded at acclaimed concerts in November 2015 in Ratzeburg, Berlin and Altenburg. The set captures enthusiastic and inventive performances full of verve, with plenty of room for spontaneity and improvisation. The ensemble creates a deep field of sound with alternating foreground and background, full of echo effects, fading surfaces, frizzing lines and swirls like falling leaves; a tonal richness emerges from unusual, surprising turning points and dynamic openings.

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!
