During the current decade cologne-based saxophonist Angelika Niescier has made her connection to New York’s elite improvisational jazz community readily clear. Her trio album The Berlin Concert, was voted one of the most important releases of 2018 by Downbeat.

This stunning new recording suggests that only the Atlantic Ocean separates her from the agile collaborators heard here. Once again her music is anchored by the bass playing of Chris Tordini, the saxophonist’s longest-running stateside partner. The album includes the first recorded evidence of her simpatico ties with drummer
Gerald cleaver and trumpeter Jonathan Finlayson.

On numerous pieces Niescier has experimented with various Cagean compositional devices to propel, complicate, and energize improvisational endeavors. she’s long been stimulated by the ideas of John Cage, but this recording marks the first time she’s chosen to apply them to her own work, albeit in a highly personalized fashion. Peter Margasak writes in the liner notes: “this fresh direction only suggests a blossoming of niescier’s creativity, as she complements the enlargement of her new York circle with an expansion of compositional models."

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!
