Chick Corea’s first leader date for ECM, recorded in January 1971, emphasized his creative alliance with Dave Holland. The pianist and bassist had bonded musically during their years with Miles Davis and both were committed to extending the possibilities of improvisation in a period when, as Corea would put it “the atmosphere seemed charged with desire for new sounds and new ways.” The trio was completed by Barry Altschul, whose detailed and dynamic drumming had been fine-tuned through his work with Paul Bley. Repertoire on A.R.C. includes compositions by Corea and Holland, group improvising, and an inspired account of Wayne Shorter’s “Nefertiti”.

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!
