"... the dominant concept here is creating an utterly distinctive sound involving Micromoog synthesizer and electronic washes. Always a bold texturalist, Blake may have outdone himself this time."
- JazzTimes.com

Tenor sax player Michael Blake assembled a stellar quartet to record this album, featuring dexterous Vancouver keyboardist Chris Gestrin and internationally acclaimed drummer Dylan van der Schyff with the idiosyncratic JP Carter on trumpet and electronics. The three musicians Blake handpicked for this 2012 release have an intuitive connection from many years of playing in various bands and they take Blake’s music to unexpected places. One unusual aspect of this quartet is the fact that Gestrin plays both Rhodes and Micromoog bass.

“Chris is without a doubt a world-class artist and his Moog playing is exemplary. His independence on both keyboards is obvious, but how he engages both instruments in conversation is really amazing. He really makes it sound like we have another person playing bass.”

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!
