"... Waldron expanded the horizons of jazz pianists with his hard bop, post bop, and free jazz leanings. His classical training, dedication to Monk's musical legacy and sustained individuality combined to create one of jazz's most fascinating discographies ..."
- Jazz.com

Pianist Mal Waldron had a brooding chordal style, initially influenced by Thelonious Monk but quite individual. He was flexible enough to fit into both hard bop and avant-garde settings. Originally Waldron played jazz on the alto sax and classical music on piano but, while at Queens College, he decided to switch to jazz piano. His associations with Charles Mingus from 1954 to 1956 and with Billie Holiday as her last accompanist from 1957 to her death in 1959 gave him a much higher profile. This 1959 session yielded a concept album of sorts; subtitled Mal Waldron Plays Moods of Billie Holiday, it's dedicated to Holiday. Frequent collaborator Jackie McLean plays alto sax on Waldron's signature tune, the title track, which Waldron co-wrote with Lady Day.

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!
