Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    52:05
Modern music pioneer George Lewis incorporates many facets of his musicianship in his compositions and his collaboration with the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) documented here underlines the wide net that he casts. The recording opens with the title track, a boisterous and colourful ensemble work that manifests exuberance through explosive, embellished lines, glitchy off-kilter grooves and subtly shaded microtonal chords. Born Obbligato was written for ICE as a companion piece to Beethoven’s Septet Op. 20 and borrows structural and textural ideas from Beethoven, adding percussion to the fourth movement. The album closes with Lewis’s performance of T.J. Anderson’s In Memoriam Albert Lee Murray, composed in honour of a writer and colleague of Anderson.

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!
