"... gorgeous ... perhaps the equal of the more celebrated A Love Supreme ..."
- Entertainment Weekly

"Simultaneously a ballad album, a darkly ruminative suite and a subtle exercise in reconfiguring Latin rhythms ... this has been a favourite of conservatives from Martin Williams to Wynton Marsalis, who regard it as Coltrane's quartet peak. Only what's coming up next stops me from going that far."
- The Village Voice

John Coltrane's 1964 album Crescent features his classic quartet of McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on double bass and powerhouse drummer Elvin Jones. This acclaimed set of five Coltrane originals paved the way for Coltrane's next recording, the landmark A Love Supreme.

This album is a high-resolution digital transfer of material originating from an analogue recording. It may contain noise, distortion or other artifacts, and may also contain audio which is limited in bandwidth and dynamic range, due to the technology available at the time of its original creation. As such, it is offered as a high-resolution documentation of a historical release.

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!
