"The very definition of noodly, this disc is sort of a softer, quieter extension of the free jazz of the 1960s: flashy in parts but not terribly cohesive. Initially it focuses on Gismonti's acoustic guitar, then shifts into endless improvisational piano riffs. The playing is in essence solo work, with very sparse and minimal accompaniment ... one of Gismonti's best distributed and most well known albums in the United States."

This groundbreaking 1977 album from Brazilian composer and musician Egberto Gismonti was the first of his many recordings for ECM over more than 30 years. Dança Das Cabeças consists of two side-long pieces, performed exclusively by Gismonti except for percussion, handled here by Naná Vasconcelos. Gismonti earned an Album of the Year nomination from Stereo Review for this effort.
192 kHz / 24-bit PCM – ECM Records Studio Masters

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!
