“... a perfectly balanced project of deeply felt chamber jazz ... with both exquisite composition and passionate improvisation, this is one of the finest works of 2006 ... I want to hear this music again and again ..."
- PopMatters.com

"... an accessible set of evocative chamber jazz that's both austere and experimental, unified by Horvitz's lyrical writing ... perfectly assimilates bittersweet melodies and sci-fi futurism into a synchronous sound world all his own."
- All About Jazz

The Gravitas Quartet is pianist Wayne Horvitz’s improvising chamber ensemble featuring a unique sound and performances both classically poised and jazzily exuberant and inventive. You can hear the long history of jazz in some of the pieces on this 2006 release; others seem to break free from genre expectations altogether. Way Out East was recorded and mixed in DSD bringing out the beauty of its textures and sonorities. What really makes the music shine though, is Horvitz's gift as a composer, the way his themes and harmonies insinuate themselves into the listener’s consciousness and touch those vulnerable places with their tart nostalgia and bittersweet melancholy.

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!
