"... it's astonishing how fully formed his style was even early on in his career ... Rollins was truly blessed with the rhythm section of Kenny Drew, Percy Heath and Art Blakey ... the quartet seems to effortlessly glide through a variety of tunes ... the real treats are the tracks featuring the Modern Jazz Quartet ... the music has a depth and grace not heard on the other tracks ... In A Sentimental Mood showcases Rollins' melodic gifts over a bed of shimmering vibes and sparse piano ..."

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!
