“… a talent-laden septet … a fresh, engaging and intellectually challenging mix of modern creative and avant-jazz … an aural feast ..." - The Absolute Sound "The eight compositions here are meticulously crafted but hard to pin down, passing through an eclectic series of modernist riffs and unusual grooves, funky rhythms and moody meditations ... Carney and a crack team of improvisers glide easily between themes and take small diversions into free playing ..." - JazzTimes.com Keyboardist James Carney's dream group features a four-horn frontline: two saxes, a trumpet and a trombone. The music he’s given his starry band of improvisers to interpret on 2007's Green-Wood is beautifully crafted and intensely grooving in various feels, from second line and funk to 6/4 and complex time signatures. Inspired by the whole tradition, Carney’s aesthetic unites the jazz mainstream and avant-garde, blending musical derring-do with a post-bop-meets-chamber-music-and-rock lyricism. His band delivers with individuality and relish, while the high resolution recording makes the most of earcatching voicings, timbres and textures. It’s obvious both from his words and his music that Carney’s enthusiasm and energy is tempered by great thoughtfulness and reverence for the art form.

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!
