The A-list ensemble The Wonderful World of Louis Armstrong All Stars release their tribute album to the great musician, A Gift To Pops, via Verve Records. It celebrates the continuing influence and undying legacy of the jazz giant and storied entertainer, 50 years after his death in 1971, with special guests including Wynton Marsalis and Common. The group is comprised largely of stellar Crescent City musicians, who have inventively re-envisioned music associated with the trumpeter and vocalist during his five-decade career. A Gift To Pops includes new arrangements and performances of tunes ranging from “The Peanut Vendor” (recorded by “Satchmo” in 1930) to his late-period No.1 “What a Wonderful World,” the most successful recording of his career). “We decided to make a recording that captures the essence of Pops,” says co-producer and band member Wycliffe Gordon. “We wanted to perform the music the way he might have played it if he were still alive. We all had ideas for how to pull this off, by including songs influenced by gospel, the blues, the traditional brass band sounds, popular music and rap.”

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!
