"What sets this disc apart is its live nature and the way the music is let loose, the drama heightened, the manner considerably hotter, the rhythms a lot more urgent ... Katché is a marvellously subtle pusher of the beat and of his playing partners ... if you like this band in the studio, you’ll enjoy this more vividly coloured example of their work."
- TheJazzBreakfast.com

"... showcases a slightly more aggressive side of the drummer ... his group’s performance revolves around a profound dedication to improvisation and dynamic interplay ... finds Katché grooving deeper than ever, pounding hard and changing the rhythmic pattern by the bar, almost to the point where he goes full Muppet Show Animal ... a great night full of intensity, spirit and magic."

Recorded live at the New Morning in Paris in June 2014, drummer Manu Katché and his band demonstrate impressive cohesion; the sound is superbly solid, sweeping all before it. Braced by layers of Hammond B-3 from Jim Watson, who also provides all the bass parts, trumpeter Luca Aquino and Tore Brunborg on saxes can take flight. A skilled mix of discreet, electronic contributions with a dominant, acoustic sound constitutes one of this group's major strengths. It's obvious the musicians are listening to each other attentively: they show respect for each other, never seeking to assert themselves individually.

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!
