Herbie Hancock
"... offers a wealth of fresh detail and enhanced musicality ... will truly augment an understanding of the music." - All About Jazz "... Hancock’s percussive chords and rhythmic explorations are driven with seemingly unlimited energy. A curtain raiser for more good things to come." - LondonJazzCollector Fourteen-time Grammy Award-winner Herbie Hancock is one of the most respected and wildly diverse musicians in jazz history. On his 1964 release Empyrean Isles, featuring the Miles Davis Quintet rhythm section and Freddie Hubbard on cornet, Hancock established himself as a powerful musical and commercial force, returning to a hard bop sound inflected with modal, fusion and free jazz elements. Among the most important jazz albums of the 1960's, Empyrean Isles displays the boundless invention and experimentation that would become Hancock's signature style.

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!
