This unique album from saxophonist Jacques Schwarz-Bart sees the Guadeloupean musician combine jazz with ritual music from Haiti, in collaboration with practitioners Erol Josué (vocals) and Gaston Jean-Baptiste (percussion). Skillfully weaving the two musical practices together, one of Schwarz-Bart's aims with this album is to help break down prejudicial views about vodou (voodoo) practices through showing how glorious this music can be. “[vodou] melodies have a lyricism similar to that of opera and use complex modes that can also be found in jazz music (mixolydian, phrygian, lydian). But what sets it apart is its relationship with silence. The melodies have very punctuated structures, with breaths of various lengths, giving each emotion adequate space to synch in and reach your core. That dialogue with silence creates a doorway to the unknown.” - Jacques Schwarz-Bart, musician

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!
