Grammy Award nomination – Best Improvised Jazz Solo, 2017 – Whisper Not Grammy Award nomination – Best Jazz Instrumental Album, 2017 Influential and highly innovative pianist Fred Hersch presents a truly boundary-pushing solo album with Open Book, which sees the musician explore free improvisation, inspired by an experience at a live concert he gave in Seoul in late 2016. “I have discovered that jazz is not nearly as much about playing what you know, but musically going to those places you have never been before... Through The Forest is an example of improvising with no safety net or preconceived ideas – I just went wherever it took me until it felt right to arrive at a musical and emotional destination.” - Fred Hersch, pianist

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!
