"... three extended pieces explore Jarrett's more romantic side, with occasional references to his Americana and gospel roots. Jarrett's writing is largely structured for the string orchestra, with the pianist, Haden and Garbarek overlaying improvisational contributions that integrate seamlessly ... Jarrett and Garbarek explore ways to intertwine with the strings' compositional contexts to create something that's more a confluence: something neither jazz nor classical, but simply something else ... a relentless search for new musical terrain and fresh creative perspectives."
- All About Jazz

Recorded in 1975, Arbour Zena is considered one of Keith Jarrett's most exceptional albums. Evocative writing for strings, beautiful playing by Jarrett, Jan Garbarek and Charlie Haden at his most soulful, accompaniment by members of the Radio Symphony Orchestra Stuttgart conducted by Mladen Gutesha along with a glowing panoramic production make this recording one of the finest of the early ECMs.

"I consider (Mirrors) one of my most richly lyrical and consistently inspired works. Jan Garbarek’s contribution is irreplaceable and ecstatic."

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!
