- MusicWeb International

Arranger and saxophonist Oliver Nelson pulls together a cast of stellar performers on this 1961 set of iconic tracks that helped define the sound of post-bop jazz. Teaming up with Freddie Hubbard (trumpet), Eric Dolphy (flutes and saxophones), Bill Evans (piano), Paul Chambers (bass) and Roy Haynes (drums), Nelson's arrangements provide an introspective meditation on blues harmony and structure while also showcasing the talents of this outstanding lineup.

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!
