"Hearing these recordings for the first time in nearly two decades it’s remarkable just how many memorable tunes Williams wrote during this period.” - All About Jazz "... Williams changed the face of drumming forever ... he literally gave birth to fusion drumming ..." - DRUM! Magazine Influential drummer Tony Williams rejoined Blue Note when the label was relaunched in the mid 1980s and recorded a series of albums with a quintet featuring pianist Mulgrew Miller, trumpeter Wallace Roney, saxophonist Bill Pierce and bassist Charnett Moffett, later replaced by Ira Coleman. This quintet was short-lived and only recorded four albums; Civilization released in 1986 was the first of those albums. Throughout his career Williams always considered his songwriting to be equally important to his drumming, so it's not surprising that this quintet mainly recorded Williams's original compositions, with a handful of covers and standards as exceptions.

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!
