- DownBeat

The François Bourassa Quartet has been playing together for almost three decades and is considered one of Canada's premier contemporary jazz groups. This 2011 album garnered a Juno Award nomination for Contemporary Jazz Album of the Year.

"Pianist François Bourassa’s acoustic quartet plays with an exciting drive that shows how much there is still left to explore within the time-honoured constraints of the piano, bass, drums and saxophone quartet configuration. Voice and bass clarinet are added to the mix, along with under-the-hood piano coloration to produce atmospheric, dreamy music that contrasts with other more kinetic numbers. Sounds like a group of musicians who love what they do. They shine as individuals in a way that also allows them to coalesce into one, eloquent, nuanced voice."

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!
