"... a jazz project of a personal nature ... celebrates the tunes and the semi-free, modal improvisation pioneered by both the Miles Davis and John Coltrane ensembles ... at times, Comess comes scarily close to a replication of historical recordings ..."
- The Wall Street Journal

Drummer Aaron Comess, a founding member of the Grammy nominated, 10 million plus selling band Spin Doctors, has touched on jazz music over his career, however this is his first full jazz album. He assembled a dream team quintet and recorded three live sets one night at Smoke Jazz Club in New York City; this is a document of the music performed that magical night, both inspired by and paying tribute to the John Coltrane and Miles Davis ensembles of the 1960s. A versatile and creative drummer, Comess has played on, written on and/or produced over 200 albums with a wide range of artists such as Joan Osborne, Isaac Hayes, Garland Jeffreys, Marc Cohn and Chris Whitley, to name just a few.

"I’ve been a lover of jazz music since I was a kid and it's really just as much as part of my musical make up as anything so I thought the time was right to put together a band and release a recording. I liked the idea of being about to just go in and record a night of music and let it be what it will be ..."

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!
