“The suite itself, when taken as a whole, is a study of contrasts. Refined and noble thoughts, earthy episodes, weighty-and-ominous suggestions, and graceful notions all take hold at one time or another. Plenty of high-powered players get to step into the spotlight, but the real magic has less to do with the individual personalities than with the way Reid stitches this music together.” - Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz Grammy Award-winning double bassist Rufus Reid draws on the life and work of artist and activist Elizabeth Catlett as inspiration for the album Quiet Pride. Taking five sculptures by Catlett as his starting point, Reid spun a suite of four movements that won the Raymond and Beverly Sackler Composition Prize in 2006, to which a fifth was added for this recording to form a hugely varied composition that is performed with true artistry by musicians such as Herlin Riley, Steve Alle, and Vic Juris, along with stellar brass and woodwind sections. “You know how you can spend hours in a gallery, just letting the images sink in? I found myself responding to the shapes and lines in Elizabeth’s work. While there is no ‘absolute’ correspondence, I do feel that she inspired me to mix my own shapes and lines.” - Rufus Reid, 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!
