"Four Stars ... this enticing set balances rhythmically limber quartet tracks and six intimate sax/guitar duets ... whooshing tenor sax figures spin over hi-life guitar vamps in the duo pieces, alongside organ-mimicking guitar grooves, quiet spoken exchanges in English and French and acoustic guitar and boppish sax swoops on the duo version of Gnossienne. It’s an enticingly hip and conversational set."
- The Guardian

"Whilst Kummert's carefully crafted compositions and serpentine saxophone lines are absolutely key to La diversité it's Loueke's subtle contributions which propel it to the next level. Whilst Loueke has a proclivity for understatement in a similar vein to Bill Frisell, he is equally capable of delivering more raucous expositions ... this album is mesmeric and innovative, replete with fresh ideas and sounds."
- All About Jazz

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!
