"... the radiant new album by the guitarist Mary Halvorson, featuring an eight-piece ensemble of improvisers as deft and resourceful as she is ... (a) killer front line ..."
- The New York Times

"... guitarist extraordinaire Mary Halvorson once again shows her determination to build upon her unique style as a composer and bandleader ... the resulting music is typical Halvorson: harmonically complex, emotionally compelling and full of interesting moments worth savouring ... it's also immediately evident how well this group works together as a unit ... even during the record's more raucous moments, there's never a sense that they're in danger of losing control of the pulse. And the horns are as fabulous as you would expect ... perhaps the most engaging aspect of the recording is its strong emotional core ... it is clear that this is music to be enjoyed, not simply admired or respected. Whether we are taken down a path of exultant cacophony or melancholy musings, with Halvorson as our guide it is sure to involve her irresistible melodic sensibility ... she's given us another exceptional record to celebrate."
- All About Jazz

For this album, New York jazz guitarist Mary Halvorson expands her septet with the addition of pedal steel guitarist Susan Alcorn, who joins Halvorson's usual bassist John Hébert and drummer Ches Smith and a brass section called "superlative" by All About Jazz. Away With You was included on a list in The New York Times of 10 fall pop and jazz albums "not to be missed."

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!
