"Four Stars ... (Katché) is the kind of drummer who can't not groove ... he adds propulsion to the kind of chamber jazz that too often floats in a musical soup of formless percussion. He makes a beautiful sound on his kit, too ... a thoughtful, feel good jazz album that harks back to the traditions of modern jazz while remaining contemporary, thanks to Katché's inventive drumming."
- The Guardian

"... full of wonders ... the band creates music full of small epiphanies and the seductive warmth that is typical of the works of Miles Davis and Keith Jarrett ... original compositions are remarkable for their freshness, lyricism and elegance. Even though the drummer is the bandleader, there is no sign of him dominating or suffocating the music. His propulsive and unobtrusive drumming (in odd time signatures) adds a different feel to each composition, giving this music its quiet fire. The compositions are minimalistic and Katché takes his time as the story unfolds slowly and subtly ... (the grooves) are infectious, but more than that, the compositions are brilliant ... many of his pieces deserve to become jazz standards."
- All About Jazz

Drummer Manu Katché's leader debut for ECM, released in 2005, finds him fronting a remarkable band, assembled by producer Manfred Eicher, bringing together Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek and Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stanko on the front line. Two of Stanko’s gifted young associates, pianist Marcin Wasilewski and bassist Slawomir Kurkiewicz, complete an ensemble which plays Katché’s music with tremendous assurance, as if they’ve been playing together for years. Which, indeed, some of them have.

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!
