Legendary jazz and funk drummer, Bernard Purdie - known for signature beat, the "Purdie Shuffle" - heads this soul/jazz group for their first and only record. Originally released in 1971, this was Purdie's 3rd release as band-leader, and features some of the legendary talents of the day, including Chuck Rainey on Electric Bass, Billy Mitchell on Tenor Sax, and Snooky Young on Trumpet, among others. This is a unique and stand-out record for completionists, cataloguing a rising moment in Purdie's career. This is also an important transitional period from earlier jazz styles to the soul and RnB influenced sound of the 70s, bringing together legends of the be-bop era in horn players like Mitchell and Young with the young lions of funk and soul in the rhythm section.

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!
