"Great Cuban music ... some big band, some great vocals, orchestral pieces and lots of great percussion, basically sampling the breadth of Cuban music ..."
- WRUV-FM

"Four Stars ... Fonseca is doing with the music of his homeland what US pioneers like Robert Glasper are doing with jazz: drilling down into the roots of the music, examining the influences that created the current generation, but doing it without nostalgia or slavish imitation ... instead, there is a thrilling sense of immediacy, of different currents converging on the present and of a musician who is organically connected to his roots ... a vivid exposition of all that is alive and intoxicating about the Afro-Cuban tradition."
- The Irish Times

ABUC is the eighth album from Cuban pianist Roberto Fonseca and his first to appear on the famous impulse! label. The Latin Grammy-winning Fonseca reveals his talent for storytelling on these songs, featuring guests including Trombone Shorty, Eliades Ochoa, Zé Luis Nascimento, Rafael Lay (Orquesta Aragón) and Manuel "Guajiro" Mirabal, among many others.

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!
