2019 marks the 50 year anniversary of The Modern Jazz Quartet's The Sheriff, offering fans of the group a rootin’, tootin’ good time...or at least implied as much with its title.

Recorded in New York City during sessions in May and December, The Sheriff was another endeavor helmed by a top-notch twosome: producer Nesuhi Ertegun and recording engineer Tom Dowd. While it may not be recognized as one of the Quartet’s absolute best efforts, it’s nonetheless an LP which continued to find them in solid form throughout, thanks in no small part to the consistent vibraphone work of the legendary Milt Jackson.

Given how prolific The Modern Jazz Quartet was during this period - in the same year, they also released collaboration with Laurindo Almeida and their take on George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess - it’s no wonder that The Sheriff sometimes flies under the radar.

As such, if you’ve never given it a spin, why not fix that situation right now?

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!
