Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers
"... contains some of the best Jazz Messenger work of the period ..." - All About Jazz "... one of the Messengers strongest line ups ..." - LondonJazzCollector Drummer Art Blakey was so prolific his record label held this album back for nine years because of the glut of Blakey music already on the market when this was recorded in 1961. The version of the Jazz Messengers on this album includes an all-star lineup of Blakey on drums, Lee Morgan on trumpet, Bobby Timmins and Walter Davis, Jr. on piano and bassist Jymie Merritt. Tenor sax player Wayne Shorter wrote all the songs and plays sax on the album, which also features interesting, alternate versions of The Back Sliders, Ping Pong and United.
192 kHz / 24-bit PCM – Blue Note Studio Masters

This album is a high-resolution digital transfer of material originating from an analogue master source. It may contain noise, distortion or other artifacts, and may also contain audio which is limited in bandwidth or dynamic range, due to the technology available at the time of its production. As such, it is offered as a high-resolution documentation of a historical release.

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!
