"We will no doubt hear more about Cuban music as politicians work out the details of improved U.S.-Cuban relations. Don't be surprised if some of the news coverage is superficial, ignoring the two countries' long musical history together. You'd do well to start your listening with Cuba: The Conversation Continues and its lesson on how a respectful collaboration can defy politics and dictators."
- Felix Contreras, NPR

"An imaginative brew of arty and party music."
- John Fordham, The Guardian

The timing of this record from Arturo O'Farrill and his Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra could not have been better, with the group beginning preparation for recording just as President Obama announced plans to normalize diplomatic relations with Cuba. As such O'Farrill assembled a binational cast of composers to contribute to his beautiful project celebrating the longstanding musical relationship between the island nation and the United States that has oft-transcended their histories of political tensions.

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!
