What happens when you stop taking yourself -- and your music -- so seriously? Sometimes, the abandonment of rigidity can result in a performance that is more impressive, and memorable, than before. Turkish pianist Hakan Toker proves this point in Toker Messing Around, where he takes some well-known melodies from sources all across the map -- and adds his own twist and flare. Hakan Toker was born in a southern Turkish town called Mersin in 1976. He holds a BM from Indiana University School of Music, where he studied piano, composition, jazz, and electronic music. To date, he has performed in 28 countries, both solo and alongside other artists. He has shared the stage with many masters of Eastern and Western music; he has collaborated with various groups, singers, dancers, poets, and jugglers, He has done classical and improvised recitals, informative concerts, music for silent films, multi-media, and musical-comedy shows.

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!
